Purpose. The study of the influence of extracorporeal and intravascular hemocorrection methods (plasmapheresis, ultraviolet blood radiation, ozonetherapy and its combination) on skin process and life quality in patients with extensive psoriasis. Methods. 253 patients with extensive psoriasis from the age of 18 to 72 have been investigated. PASI (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index) and dermatological index of life quality (DILQ) have been used for treatment assessment. Results. The inclusion of efferent quantum and ozone therapy methods in the complex treatment of psoriasis has promoted to the more rapid and complete positive dynamics of skin process and the improvement of life quality. The use of plasmapheresis and its variations with photomodification or the ozone treatment of returning erythrocyte suspension has been the most effective. Plasmapheresis and its modifications are appropriateto be used in the complex treatment of the patients with severe forms of psoriasis. Conclusion: Further study of efferent quantum and ozone therapy methods and their wider use in psoriasis therapy and other chronic dermatosis seem to be promising.
