Asia (bbabo.net), - Russian specialists are introducing in Uzbekistan the practice of restoring injuries to the elbow joint using the Ilizarov method. This was announced today, December 15, by the Sputnik Uzbekistan news agency with reference to the press service of the Ministry of Health of the Republic.
As the press service informs, the technique began to be used in the Republican Specialized Scientific and Practical Medical Center for Traumatology and Orthopedics.
“Republican centers are actively cooperating with Russian specialists in the process of surgical treatment of congenital or acquired pathologies of bone tissue,” the report says.
In this direction, there is an exchange of experience with the doctors of the Russian Scientific Center for Restorative Traumatology and Orthopedics named after Ilizarov.
“We are introducing new technologies on the basis of a memorandum of cooperation with our colleagues at the research center. These agreements are aimed at finding solutions to problems in the field of traumatology, orthopedics, surgery and rehabilitation. In the near future, it is planned to establish the practice of restoring the bone tissue of patients not with the help of an endoprosthesis or plates, but in a natural way using the Ilizarov method, ”the agency quotes Russian trauma surgeon Yuri Soldatov as saying.
It is reported that several patients have already been operated on with the help of new technologies.
“The elbow joint is considered one of the most complex joints in humans. Because in fact it consists of three joints. It is difficult to ensure their synchronous operation with each other. Currently, there are very few high-tech endoprostheses that provide this. The most effective methods are performing reconstructive operations on the bones and restoring joint mobility by installing the Ilizarov apparatus,” said Iskandar Khodzhanov, head of the pediatric traumatology department of the Uzbek Center for Traumatology and Orthopedics.
From the beginning of next year, this technology is planned to be introduced not only in the Center itself, but also in territorial branches.
