The authors have worked out a programme for combined treatment of purulent wounds with CO2 laser. It consists of following components: a) laserinsision of suppurative wounds,necrectomy,or irradiation of the incised wound with the defocused laser beam; b )diplication of proteinerses and antiseptics immobilized on the textile dressing and dranaige materials; c) applications of biocompatible materials with the immobilized antiseptics and enzyme agents; d) application of low energy laser irradiation in the postoperative period; e) lavage of the sutured wound if indicated. The points of the above-mentioned programme can be used separately as independed methods in several thousands of patients. Their combined applications has been studied on 400 patients. Such treatment allowed to refuse the antibioticotherapy in 98,3% of cases,to reduce the terms of trestment in I,5-2 % times as compared with traditional methods, and to low significantely costs.
