Analysed herein is the experience with micronized purified flavonoid fraction (MPFF) in treatment of geriatric patients with decompensated forms of chronic venous diseases.

A total of 218 geriatric patients were examined and treated. Of these, 132 patients had trophic disorders (C4-C6 class), including 40 patients found to have venous trophic ulcers (VTU). Therapeutic policy consisted in wound cleansing, application of topical antiseptics, hydroalginate dressing, stimulation of regenerative processes by therapy with MPFF at a dose of 1,000 mg daily. The microcirculatory blood flow was examined by means of laser Doppler flowmetry.

By the end of a 4-week course of comprehensive treatment, 31 of 40 patients were found to have elevated microcirculation index to 16.9±2.1 perfusion units, suggesting improved perfusion of the lower-limb skin. Venous trophic ulcers completely epithelialized in 9 patients and decreased by half of their initial area in 22 patients. Repeat assessment of cardiac activity showed a decreased functional class of chronic heart failure in 9 of 17 patients with healed VTU. Assessing safety of phlebotrophic therapy revealed neither adverse reactions nor decompensation of accompanying diseases during the whole follow-up period.

KEY WORDS: chronic venous diseases, venous trophic ulcers, geriatric patients, micronized purified flavonoid fraction.
