A Yakut scientist invented a method of preserving frostbitten limbs without amputation.

A Yakut scientist found a way to preserve the limbs suffering from severe frostbites, which may subsequently help to revive people who are frostbitten and still alive.

“A severe frostbite of the degrees 3-4 of life-time freezing of body parts causes the human brain to form the dominant centre initiating a persistent limbs spasm which reduces the loss of blood, heat, and vital organs functioning. This leads to the destruction of tissues and amputation” - the director of the Yakut Scientific Center for Complex Medical Problems of SB RAMS, Doctor of Medicine Mikhail Tomskiy said.  

Tomskiy added that the treatment of frostbites without amputation was invented by the professor of North-Eastern Federal University in Yakutsk, Doctor of Medicine Revo Alekseev. "Yakut Scientific Center of Complex Medical Problems” Siberian Branch of the Academy of Medical Sciences was established to provide an independent assessment, counseling and evaluation of the ethical, legal and social issues related to biomedical or other types of research with human participation. The invention is applied only in Yakutia for the time being.

"Frostbite occurs when tissues freeze. This condition happens when you are exposed to temperatures below the freezing point of skin. Hypothermia The nose, cheeks, ears, fingers, and toes are most commonly affected. Everyone is susceptible, even people who have been living in cold climates for most of their lives," - experts explain.

“According to the Alekseev’s method, for saving body tissues a patient should be anesthetized for 1-2 days, during this time the dominant centre disappears from the brain and restoration of blood supply begins, the body warms up from the inside” - Tomskiy explained. He noted that due to the Alekseev’s method the doctors of the Burns Department of the Emergency Medical Center in Yakutsk managed to avoid amputation of patient’s limbs in 70% of cases and to minimize it in the remaining 30% of cases.
