Resumen

DIAZ HERNANDEZ, Orestes  y  CASTELLANOS GONZALEZ, Roberto. Ozonoterapia en úlceras flebostáticas. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2001, vol.40, n.2, pp.123-129. ISSN 0034-7493.

Phleboblastic ulcer is a frequent affection in the population and due to its trend to chronicity it causes significant social, personal and economic losses. We conducted a study to assess the bactericidal and favourable effect of cellular trophism. To this end, we used a study group consisted of 22 patients, who were administered local ozone-therapy and other 22 who received a conventional treatment. In the study group, 99.9 % (20/22) proved to be negative to the bacteriological culture and 90.9 % healed. In the control group, 77.7 % (17/22) had negative results and 59.1 % (13/22) healed. 63.6 % of the patients in the first group requiered less than 20 applications of ozone to obtain negative results. However, 45.5 % of the patients in the control group needed from 20 to 30 applications. 86.4 % of the patients in the study group healed with 20 to 30 applications, whereas 45.5 % of the patients in the control group healed with more than 30 applications. We concluded that local ozone-therapy is a safe and inexpensive method in the treatment of phleboblastic ulcers in the lower limbs
