Letter from the Editor

This issue of the journal Genij Ortopedii is dedicated to one of the most complicated problems of traumatology and orthopedics, management of infectious complications. It is coordinated with the Ilizarov Readings, a scientific and practical conference held to discuss these complications.

The issue is opened by an article of the RISC for RTO (Kurgan), in which the authors comprehensively outline the problems of organizing the treatment process of patients with chronic osteomyelitis and solutions of a staged organizational and functional model of their specialized medical care.

A group of authors from N.N. Priorov Center for Traumatology and Orthopaedics (Moscow) proposes to study metabolic bone disorders in chronic osteomyelitis and justifies the feasibility of their medical correction. The authors obtained evident findings confirming a significant reduction in the duration of treatment with the external fixation device on if a combined therapy is used.

Several publications of this issue are devoted to the treatment of peri-implant infection. The authors share their own experience in fighting this formidable complication, discuss issues of effectiveness of arthrodesis techniques in the treatment of periprosthetic infection of the knee joint, and show the possibilities of a onestage revision hip arthroplasty if infection develops around the implant. The articles also discuss issues related to the study of the effectiveness of a polymeric antimicrobial composition with a hemostatic effect in the treatment of an implant-associated infection. One of the publications deals with a comparative analysis of the biochemical composition of the synovial fluid in patients with infectious complications after knee arthroplasty and without it. Results of bacteriological investigation of wounds in patients with an implant-associated spinal infection are presented.

The authors from India share their experience in treating infected nonunion of the distal femur with bone loss and conclude that the Ilizarov method provides stability, allows early loading, helps fight infection and promotes fusion.

The authors from St. Petersburg conducted a multifactorial analysis of the causes of deep infection after spinal surgery and identified risk factors that must be considered in the management.

In the article devoted to the radiographic morphological signs of osteomyelitis, the authors show that osteomyelitis cavity results in extensive disorders in the structure and density of the bone and marked changes in the cortical plate.

Evaluation of antimicrobial activity of modified bone xenomaterials showed that the technologies developed for impregnating vancomycin into a xenogenic bone matrix provide a new modified material for bone grafting with pronounced antimicrobial activity.

A case report presented by the authors from R.R. Vreden Institute for Traumatology and Orthopaedics (St. Petersburg) and Iraq is dedicated to the treatment of a tibial defect using a fibular fragment in osteinductive membrane conditions. The authors note that the combination of the stimulating effects of several surgical techniques results in a good outcome in a difficult clinical situation.

Dear colleagues, we hope that the subject for this discussion will not leave anyone indifferent. Our readers will learn from the experience and gain necessary knowledge. We invite you to share your experience and discuss this very difficult problem in our journal.
