Abstract
The further development of new method of phototherapy based on use of light-emitting diodes (LED) arrays has been presented. LEDs array distribution is side of cylindrical surface, covering pathology region, was used for treatment group of patients with an affected peripheral nervous system. The main group consisted of patients with humeral plexopathy - one of possible neurological manifestation of postmastectomic syndrome as result of breast cancer radical treatment. This disease was accompanied also by some other peripheral nervous system diseases: diabetic polyneuropathy, compression ischemic mononeuropathy, festering wounds and others. The phototherapeutic method is just directed on improvement of patient's conditions in combination with other traditional methods of treatment. The main parameters of photomatrix therapeutic system: wavelength - 660 nm, line width - no more than 20 nm, intensity of radiation on the surface of edema - 0.5-3 mW/cm2 (in dependence of apparatuses type). To control and study efficiency of phototreatment ultrasonic dopplerography, thermography, electromyography and viscosimetry have been used.
