A Solution for Post-Traumatic Osteal Expositions: Association of Greater Omentum Graft with Ozone Therapy J. C. Escarpanter. "Comandante Pinares" General Hospital, San Cristobal, Cuba. Due to the frequency of injuries with postraumatic osteal exposition of the limbs, it is reported the use of greater omentum in association with ozone therapy, as a practical solution to correct these defects, with exposition of the fracture focus and in the presence or not of local infection. It is demonstrated that with the association of these methods, healing time may be shortened, due to the early appearance of granulation tissue, even on osteal surfaces and a decrease in the inflammatory signs in a septic medium, with no signs of biological rejection. Also, wasting material, anesthetics, drugs, and stay length may be saved, taking the graft from patients operated of puerperal ligatures, previous acceptation of donors and recipient. The graft implantation is performed with local anesthesia and there is no previous preparation of the injured patient. It is fixed with alternative sutures, its cost is very low and the patients feels highly satisfied. It is concluded that the association of greater omentum graft with ozone therapy offers a good alternative therapeutic in the treatment of this disease.
