7.2. Acute thrombophlebitis of the extremities.
MIL-therapy is performed contactly in the labile or stable way (without any compression to soft tissues!) on 1-2 zones in the area of thrombosis or phlebothrombosis. Impulse frequency is 1500 Hz, LED radiation power is 70 mWt. The terminal is slowly moved (with the speed sbout 1cm/sec) along the injured vessel from the body centre to its periphery during 2 min. Then the terminal is carried over the extremity, returned to the initial point and moved to the end of the injured region again (Fig. 6). After that the vascular bundle above the injured vessel (zone 1) and the inguinal bundles (zone 2) are irradiated with exposure 2 min on every zone (frequency 150 Hz, LED radiation power 60 mWt). There are 7-8 sessions in the course. In two weeks the treatment by the same scheme is repeated but this time it is done in a day.
Postthrombophlebitic syndrome in the exacerbation stage
The treatment is the same as for the acute thrombophlebitis (Fig. 6). Blood coagulation system must be controlled every week.
