Abstract

Summary. The purpose of the study is - To improve the results of treatment of patients with purulent long-term non-healing wounds of the lower extremities using the method of local negative pressure.in purulent long-term non-healing wounds (PLTNHW).

Objectives of the research according to the clinic’s data, to study the features of the course of the wound process and the microbiological characteristics of purulent long-term non-healing wounds of the lower extremities when exposed to the wound surface of local negative pressure.

Conclusions. The use of the local negative pressure method in the complex treatment of patients with purulent long-term non-healing wounds of the lower extremities helps to reduce the duration of the phases of the course of the wound process, early tissue decontamination and a rapid reduction in the size of wound defects.
