Abstract

An analysis of 2848 cases of complicated purulent diseases of upper extremities has determined the main errors of the prehospital treatment of the infection. Irrational self-reliant and ambulatory treatment resulted in the appearance of marked functional and anatomical defects of the affected extremity which lead to considerable economical costs. The following principal ways to solve the found problems were established: sanitary-educational work among the population, training of the ambulatory link of specialists to learn modern aspects of the diagnosis and treatment of purulent diseases of upper extremities.
