Clinical and Organization Approaches to Application of Innovative Medical Technologies at Rendering High-Tech Medical Care

Abstract


Rendering of high-tech medical care (HTMC) is one of the priority directions of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation. Search of new organizational approaches, elaboration and perfection of medical technologies, introduction of new materials continue. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the expediency of biodegradable constructions use at rendering HTMC to traumatologic and orthopaedic patients. Treatment results for 56 patients with various feet pathology (calcaneus fractures, feet joints deforming arthrosis, Hallus valgus) were analyzed retrospectively. In control group ( n =28) metal constructions and in the main group (n=28) biodegradable constructions were used for bone fragments fixation. In two groups surgical treatment results were comparable, however treatment of patients from the main group was accompanied by significant social and economic effect due to more effective work of the bed as no construction removal was performed and no expenditures for patient’s stay at the hospital and intensive care unit were required. All that contributed to the improvement of patients’ life quality.
