Abstract
Since it is difficult and time-consuming to monitor the formation of a demarcation line in frostbite by visual inspection only, thermography was used to study experimental freezing injuries of the rabbit ear. In 8 rabbits, anesthetized with ketamine hydrochloride and xylazine hydrochloride, frostbite was induced by pressing the bottom of a glass bottle 2 cm in diameter, filled with liquid nitrogen against the shaved ear skin. Thermography was performed on both ears after 2, 24, and 48 hours, and one and 3 weeks. At 2 to 48 hours the frost-bitten area was clearly warmer than the surroundings, after one week there were ill-defined diffuse cold spots in the injured area, and after 3 weeks a cold area had become clearly demarcated with a warm zone between the cold area and the surroundings. Thermography is an easy, noninvasive method for monitoring thermal changes after experimental frostbite, but its clinical value is as yet unresolved.

Abstract
Since the appearance of superficial tissue is often an unreliable indicator of deep tissue viability in cases of frostbite, radionuclide scintigraphy with 99Tcm-disodium oxidronate (HDP) was used to assess changes in tissue viability after experimental freezing and thawing of the rabbit ear. One shaved ear, left or right, of each of eight New Zealand white rabbits was frozen with a glass bottle (diameter of bottom 2 cm) filled with liquid nitrogen (-180 degrees C) for 5 min under Ketalar-Rompun anesthesia, the other ear serving as a control. Radionuclide scintigraphy was performed by giving a bolus intravenous injection of 130-170 MBq (3.5-4.5 mCi) 99Tcm-HDP. Radionuclide imaging was used to follow the development of the demarcation line. Scintigraphy was performed 2 h after frostbite and then after 24 h, 48 h, 1 week and 3 weeks. The frostbitten area seemed macroscopically to be warm and swollen immediately after the induction of frostbite. Scintigraphy showed the frostbitten area to be much warmer than the surrounding tissue for the first week and it was not until after that the first cold spots appeared in the middle of the frostbitten area. The necrotic and vital tissue could easily be distinguished after 3 weeks.

Abstract
The aim of the present study was to investigate by a combined trypan blue and catecholamine fluorescence technique the sequential changes in cutaneous adrenergic nerves, the distribution of blood flow, and vascular permeability at the demarcation line that occurred after experimental cold injury. Nine New Zealand white rabbits weighing 4.0-4.4 kg had frostbite induced by pressing the bottom of a glass bottle 2 cm in diameter filled with liquid nitrogen against the shaved skin of the ear. All the rabbits were anaesthetised with ketamine hydrochloride (Ketamine) and xylazine hydrochloride (Rompun). Specimens were taken one and three days, and two weeks after frostbite. Control samples were taken from the opposite normal ear. Trypan blue was injected into a saphenous vein just before the specimens were taken. The specimens were always taken in the same way and selected so that the probable demarcation line of the frostbite ran across the middle. The glyoxylic acid-induced fluorescence method was used to show the adrenergic nerves. There were no adrenergic nerves around the vessels and no arteriovenous anastomoses in the central area of the injury after one day, but catecholamines had started to accumulate in the adrenergic nerve endings at the margins of the injured area. This accumulation was still more obvious three days after frostbite. Some fluorescent regenerating adrenergic nerves could already be seen at the probable demarcation line two weeks after frostbite. There was increased trypan blue fluorescence near the margin of the injured area after one day, indicating extravasation and vascular damage.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Abstract
At the burn centre in Donetsk, from 1979 to 1988, 236 sufferers with a III-IV degree frostbite of the extremities were treated. Operated on were 189 patients, who underwent necrectomy, amputation of the extremity and different types of skin plasty. Of these patients, 49.8% were recognized as invalids. After 1-10 years, all the patients after a III-IV degree frostbite of the extremities make complaints, require different types of treatment, 38.9%--the operative one. For timely and qualitative rehabilitation of this category of the sufferers, their prophylactic medical examination is necessary.
