[Chemichal desympathization in the treatment of throphic ulcer in patients with varicose veins of the lower limbs].

[Article in Russian]


The in vivo study on 25 rabbits and clinical study, involving 60 patients with lower limbs' varicose disease and trophic ulcers was carried out. The in-vivo study was based on the chemical distruction of the sympathic trunk by injecting 95% ethanol and 6% phenol paraneurally along the vascular bundle in the ear. The regeneration of the sympathic neural trunk was registered within 2-3 months after the injury. In human patients the US-guided chemical desympathization led to the increase of the capillary circulation (1.9 times at rest and 0.3 times under the load) during 2 months. The fact favoured the faster regress of inflammatory process in the ulcer.
