Purulent (nonspecific) infection - inflammatory diseases of various localization and nature caused by pyogenic micro flora, occupies one of the main places in surgery and determines the essence of many diseases and postoperative complications ]. In the middle of the 20th century, there was an opinion about the possible disappearance of infectious diseases from our planet at the end of the century. These predictions turned out to be erroneous and these diseases not only did not disappear from the face of the earth, but also conduct an intensive attack on humanity, accounting for more than 70% of all diseases that affect people and cause enormous socio-economic damage. Despite the wide arsenal of dressings for the treatment of purulent wounds, their effect on the course of the inflammatory process and the condition has been insufficiently studied. A very promising direction in this search is the development and introduction into practice of new dressings with silver, the study of their properties and influence on the state of purulent wounds. All this encourages us to search for new approaches, including local and general effects on the body, to treat such a common pathology as a purulent wound. Purpose: to increase the effectiveness of the treatment of purulent wounds with the help of the “Mepitel Ag” dressing, to study its influence on the processes of wound healing. Research Assignments: 1. To evaluate the effectiveness of the “Mepitel Ag” dressing in the complex treatment of patients with purulent wounds. 2. To compare the influence of traditional methods of treatment of purulent wounds of soft tissues and the “Mepitel Ag” dressing on the processes of wound healing. 3. To develop practical recommendations for the use of the “Mepitel Ag” dressing - as a supplement to the generally accepted treatment regimen for purulent wounds. Practical significance. The work proved the expediency of using new dressings for the treatment of purulent wounds of soft tissues. The widespread introduction of the obtained materials into surgical practice will significantly improve the results of treatment of patients with purulent surgical infection. The use of the method of local treatment of purulent wounds using the “Mepitel Ag” dressing does not cause complications and is easy to implement. which makes it possible to use it in a polyclinic. Implementation in practice. The results of the research are implemented in the work of Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital, Canada.
