The objective: generalization of the experience of using chlorhexidine drugs in obstetric and gynecological practice.
Materials and methods. The efficacy of using Depantol and Hexicon for non-specific colpitis in patients of adolescent, reproductive age, pregnant women, women in perimenopause, as well as in patients after cervical, vaginal and perineal operations was evaluated and generalized. The surveyed groups contained 30 to 50 patients. The diagnosis of nonspecific vaginitis was verified by clinical and laboratory examination. Criteria for recovery were complete clinical and bacterial sanation.
The effectiveness of therapy was evaluated immediately after treatment and after 1 and 3 months. The data were compared with the appropriate control groups or with the condition prior to treatment.
Results. High efficiency of chlorhexidine preparations in the treatment of nonspecific colpitis in patients of different age categories and conditions was noted. The experience of using Depantol and Gecikon in obstetrics and gynecology is generalized, priorities are determined in the application of these drugs.
Conclusion. Preparations of chlorhexidine Geksikon and Depantol are highly effective against the main pathogens of inflammatory nonspecific vulvovaginitis. They do not interfere with the functional activity of lactobacilli, which helps maintain a normal vaginal biocenosis. The drug Geksikon with success can be recommended both for the treatment of gynecological patients of reproductive age, and pregnant women.
The use of Depantol, due to the regenerative activity of the dexpanthenol component, is a priority in the treatment of infectious processes in adolescence, perimenopausal age and in patients after operations on the cervix, vagina and perineum.
Key words: chlorhexidine preparations, obstetrics and gynecology, Depantol, Geksikon.
