VACUUM-THERAPY OF DIFFUSE PERITONITIS
The experience of treatment of 37 patients, suffering diffuse peritonitis, in 18 of them in complex with vacuum-therapy, is adduced. In a comparison group a sanation relaparotomy was applied only. International classifications SOFA, APACHE II, Manheim’s Index of the Peritonitis Severity were used for estimation of the patients’ state severity. The vacuum-therapy application have promoted significant reduction of the abdominal cavity microbial soiling, permitted to escape the compartment syndrome occurrence, and to reduce the sanation relaparotomy performance rate.
