Title The use of ozone in dentistry and maxillofacial surgery: a review

Abstract Ozone has been successfully used in medicine because of its microbiologic properties for more than 100 years. Its bactericide, virucide, and fungicide effects are based on its strong oxidation effect with the formation of free radicals as well as its direct destruction of almost all microorganisms. In addition, ozone has a therapeutic effect that facilitates wound healing and improves the supply of blood. For medical purposes, ozone may be applied as a gas or dissolved in water. Despite the advantages that the therapeutic use of ozone offers, reservations remain in terms of its application in the oral and maxillofacial area. Particularly, the gaseous application of ozone is critically evaluated because of its possible side effects on the respiratory system. The objective of this article is to provide an overview of the current applications of ozone in dentistry and oral surgery. Research was based on peer-reviewed sources found through a Medline/PubMed search and other textbooks, reviews, and journals.

Title [The twenty-year experience of the ozone use for the treatment of traumatic-orthopedic patients with purulent infection]
Author Zaitsev, A B
Author Mokeev, O A
Abstract Comprehensive treatment of trauma and orthopedic patients with purulent diseases of bones and joints are based on the principles of active surgical tactics and include surgical debridement of purulent focus to optimize the process of wound healing in all its phases. The use of ozone at different stages of the surgical treatment of trauma and orthopedic patients with purulent infection of the wound has streamlined the process to significantly reduce the number of repeat sanitizing operations and the length of stay of patients in hospital. Key words: purulent diseases of bones and joints, ozone therapy.

Abstract The study of efficacy of ozone therapy (OT) in preparation of patients with prostatic adenoma (PA) and cystostoma for transurethral resection (TUR) of PA included 20 PA patients with cystostomic drainage who had undergone PA TUR and preoperative preparation with OT sessions. The control group consisted of similar patients but without ozone pretreatment. OT efficacy was assessed by the rate of pyoinflammatory complications (PIC), results of immunological examination, positive changes in prostatic secretion, urine analysis, total blood count, degree ofbacteriuria. In the study group PIC (acute urethritis) developed in 1 patient, in the control--in 6 patients (3 cases of acute urethritis, 2 cases of acute prostatitis and 1 case of acute epididymitis). OT led to lowering of mean values of leukocyturia from 18.1 +/- 0.6 to 14.3 +/- 0.7 on the day of operation, to 10.9 +/- 0.7 after 4 days and to 8.7 +/- 0.6 on postoperative day 8 versus from 18.8 +/- 0.8 to 15.4 +/- 0.7, to 15.8 +/- 0.6 and 13.5 +/- 0.6, respectively. Mean control count of leukocytes in prostatic secretion fell in both groups. OT reduced bacteriuria. Number of bacteria to the day of operation decreased in both groups, but complete elimination of the agent from urine on day 8 was not achieved in the controls. The study group exhibited a rise in the absolute count of blood leukocytes, lymphocytes and ESR diminishing. OT raised significantly the phagocytic count and activity, concentration of mature T-lymphocytes (CD3), T-helpers (CD4), cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CD8), B-lymphocytes (CD20), T-NK-cells (CD16), T-lymphocyte activation markers (CD3+, CD16+, CD56+, CD3+, CD25+, HLADR+, CD3+. The concentration of IgG, IgM, IgA remained high. Thus, the results of ozone application before PA TUR appeared promising in prevention of postoperative PIC.
