The inflammatory diseases of female genital organs are numbered among the most frequent pathologies of fertile women. In order to increase the efficiency of treatment and to avoid possible side effects we have used intrauterine irrigations with ozonated distilled water in case of acute endometritis. This method of treatment has been provided to 15 patients with postnatal and post-abortive endometritis. Based on the received results, we have drawn a conclusion that in the course of treatment all patients showed an improvement in general state, body temperature returned to normal, symptoms of intoxication decreased, sleep and appetite got better, pain syndrome disappeared faster, pathological discharges were eliminated. The results of laboratory investigations have demonstrated a credible decrease in ESR, normalization of leukocyte number, a decrease in circulating immune complexes.
Thus, for treatment of endometritis we may recommend the given method of ozone therapy to be used in combination with a basic anti-inflammatory therapy.
Endometritis is being still numbered among the most frequent pathologies of fertile women. But in spite of considerable success achieved in the treatment of inflammatory, incl. gynecological diseases, the problem of efficient treatment of endometritis is not solved yet. It can be explained as follows:
- high frequency of complications due to endometrial manipulations (therapeutic abortion, diagnostic endometrectomy and so on) that mostly appear then in the form of acute endometritis;
- considerable risk that the infectious-inflammatory process localized in uterus will generalize;
- numerous side effects of medicines to be used within the traditional treatment of endometritis.
In practical gynecology along with a basic therapy (antibacterial, desensitization, vitamins, sedative remedies) antiseptic preparations have been widely used in the form of intrauterine applications. The aim of this manipulation is to improve the removal of pyo-necrotic masses as well as to produce a medicinal effect directly in the focus of inflammation that however
can cause a number of side effects.
