[Treatment of infected wounds using a powderlike mixture].

[Article in Russian]


The use of I.D. Zhitnyuk powder is grounded on its absorbing and antiseptic properties. 211 patients with infected wounds were treated with this powder. According to the authors' data the powder mixture increases wound discharge, lessens inflammatory pheomena around the wound and hastens the rejection of necrotic tissues. The use of the powder results in the increase of phagocytosis and rapid disappearance of pathogenic microbes, as it has been proved through bacteriologic and cytologic studies.
