## Abstract

We show that for any uniformly parabolic fully nonlinear second-order equation with bounded measurable coefficients and bounded free term in the whole space or in any cylindrical smooth domain with smooth boundary data one can find an approximating equation which has a continuous solution with the first and the second spatial derivatives under control: bounded in the case of the whole space and locally bounded in the case of equations in cylinders. The approximating equation is constructed in such a way that it modifies the original one only for large values of the second spatial derivatives of the unknown function. This is different from a previous work of Hongjie Dong and the author, where the modification was done for large values of the unknown function and its spatial derivatives.
