Radiofrequency ablation of varicose veins in combination with ultrasonic-assisted wound debridement and platelet-rich plasma as well as platelet-rich fibrin technologies in treatment of lower extremity venous ulcers in office-based surgery.

for the treatment of varicose ulcer performed clinical and laboratory reasoning of the use of ultrasonic-assisted venous ulcer debridement and Platelet-rich plasma with radiofrequency ablation in an outpatient setting, was carried out.
ultrasonic-assisted debridement of trophic ulcer were performed for 50 patients with lower extremity varicose veins at decompensation stage. The effectiveness of ultrasonic-assisted debridement was evaluated by indicators of bacteriological, morphological, cytological study and assessment of trophic ulcers according to the MEASURE system. After ultrasonic-assisted debridement, the patients were divided into two groups: 30 patients, who underwent combined Platelet-rich plasma to stimulate wound regeneration and 20 patients, for whom the Granuflex hydrocolloid bandage was applied for the same purpose.
a comparative analysis of ulcer regeneration in two groups of patients proved that in cases of platelet rich plasma the time of transition from inflammatory-regenerative type to regenerative one is much shorter than when using a hydrocolloid dressing. In 28 patients undergoing Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), the radiofrequency ablation of the principal superficial and perforating veins was performed. Another 22 patients performed autodermoplasty of trophic ulcers after radiofrequency ablation.
our experience has shown that in a one-day inpatient surgical clinic such a multidisciplinary approach to treatment of venous ulcers, including ultrasonic-assisted debridement that is stimulation of wounded process by Platelet-rich plasma with further surgeries to remove the causes of decompensated chronic insufficiency, is promising regarding low costs of treatment and rehabilitation of these patients.
