Efficacy of application of a human placenta hydrolysate in prophylaxis of the intestinal anastomoses sutures insufficiency

Keywords: intestinal resection; the anastomosis sutures insufficiency; hydrolysate of placenta.


Objective. Studying of impact of a human placenta hydrolysate on regeneration of intestinal anastomosis and prophylaxis of their sutures insufficiency.

Materials and methods. Experimental investigations were conducted on two groups of rabbits. In every group a simulation model of an acute strangulation ileus was created. In a one day a relaparotomy, resection of necrotized intestinal segments with anastomosing in a “side-to-side” fashion were done in rabbits of both groups. After the operation the control group rabbits have obtained a standard treatment, while in the main group the rabbits together with a standard treatment have obtained a human placenta hydrolysate preparation «Laennec». On the days 3, 5, 7 and 15th the according intestinal segments were probed for morpho-histochemical investigations.

Clinical investigations were conducted in 122 patients, consisting of resection of intestinal segments with formation of anastomoses. The control group consisted of 60 patients, and the main one – in 62. The data of the control group were studied retrospectively. In the main group the patients, together with a standard treatment, a human placenta hydrolysate in a form of preparation “Laennec” was applied for prophylaxis of insufficiency of the intestinal anastomoses sutures.

Results. Basing on experimental results it may be stressed, that application of preparation «Laennec» strengthens regeneration and angiogenesis in zone of anastomosis, because in animals of the main group, comparing with a control one, high mitotic index, good angiogenesis and the motor-evacuation function integrity were noted.

In clinical practice the anastomotic sutures insufficiency in the control group have occurred in 13.3% of observations, and in the main group – in 1.6% of observations.

Conclusion. Application of the human placenta hydrolysate for prophylaxis of the sutures insufficiency in intestinal anastomoses is affordable due to successive clinical and experimental data obtained.
