20 patients at several hospitals who underwent surgical operation between August 1998 to August 2000 had ozonized olive oil applied to their intractable fistula or wounds. The ozonized olive oil treatment was fully effective in 19 of the cases. The one exception was for a case of pilonidal sinus. Ozonized olive oil was especially effective in treating intractable abdominal fistula to digestive tract after surgical operation. No adverse side effects were observed in the administration of the ozonized olive oil. It was fully effective for a discharge of pus and the formation of granulation.
There have been many cases of intractable fistula forming after surgical operations. In Europe ozonized olive oil has been used to treat serious wounds and good results have been achieved, however it has almost never been used in clinical applications in Japan. We started to test ozonized olive oil by treating intractable wound which resulted in a cure. Since then we have applied it for many kinds of cases, e.g., intractable fistula, decubitus anal fistula, pilonidal sinus and so on. We will report good results we achieved.
Materials and Methods
The main component of ozonized olive oil was found to be triolein triozonide as explained in the proceeding presentation.. Refrigerated ozonized olive oil which was obtained from Pharmoxid, Germany was brought to a viscous state at room temperature before use. 20 patients who had been treated unsuccessfully for intractable fistulas and wounds were selected. These patients had previously been treated by curettage, saline deterge, antibiotic ointment and/or drainage. Before treatment with ozonized olive oil an informed consent form was obtained.More
