[Arterial stiffness and blood levels of glycation end-products in patients with arterial hypertension and carotid atherosclerosis].
Combination of arterial hypertension (AH) and carotid atherosclerosis significantly increases the risk of cardiovascular complications. Arterial stiffness is believed to be a key risk factor of the development of such complications. This paper described peculiarities of this condition, methods for i...
[Structural and functional changes in myocardium of patients with chronic heart failure treated with spironolactone].
The aim of the work was to study structural and functional characteristics of the left ventricle (LV) and diastolic function in patients with systolic chronic heart failure (CCF). Group 1 included 34 patients with LV systolic dysfunction (ejection fraction > 45%) treated with spirono...
[Bacterial endotoxinemia and risk of hemorrhage from oesophageal varicose veins in patients with liver cirrhosis].
This work was designed to substantiate the necessity of estimating serum bacterial endotoxin levels in patients with liver cirrhosis (LC) for the prognostication of the risk of bleeding from oesophageal varices. The prospective cohort study included 90 patients with LC and clinical s...
True non-parasitic splenic cysts are a rare pathology represented by some 800 cases recorded worldwide. The method of choice for the treatment of this condition is surgical intervention. To-day, open surgery is substituted by low-invasive methods, such as laparoscopic splenectomy. A...
[The safety of macrolide antibiotics: critical analysis].
Macrolide antibiotics are a safest group of antimicrobial drugs well tolerated by the patients. They have no hemato-, nephro- or cerebrotoxic action, do not cause chondro- or arthropathies, nor do they affect the photosensitizing system. Also, they are/free of many negative effects c...
[Current views of etiopathogenetic mechanisms underlying the development of chronic pyelonephritis in subjects of different age].
A literature review of the issues pertinent to etiology and pathogenesis of chronic pyelonephritis is presented. Different aspects of pathogenesis of the disease in selected age groups of the patients (from childhood to senility) are considered and analysed with special reference to...
[Medico-social factors influencing the course of arterial hypertension and the quality of life].
I and II AH respectively. The control group included 30 healthy subjects engaged at the same production facility. It was shown that the main risk factors, besides emotional stress, were smoking, alcohol abuse, obesity, and hyperlipidemia. The high level of sociocultural risk factors suggests poor aw...
[Differential diagnosis of cryptogenic organizing pneumonia in a patient with secondary immunodeficiency].
This differential diagnostic study included patients with the clinical picture of lower airwave infection and bilateral lung density. The difficulty of nosological verification of the diagnosis was due to the presence of neutropenia in a patient with liver cirrhosis and hypersplenism. Results of his...
[Dysregulation of the sinoatrial node of the heart in patients with coronary heart disease during coronary artery bypass surgery].
We revealed additional characteristics of cardiac rhythm variability facilitating such choice and predictors of the risk of life-threatening heart arrhythmias. It is shown that high-resolution analysis of cardiac rhythms allows such peculiarities of dynamics of patient's conditions to be revealed th...
[The use of reamberin for the correction of endogenous intoxication syndrome associated with salmonellosis].
The aim of the work was to study characteristics of endogenous intoxication (EI) associated with salmonellosis under conditions of basal therapy and its supplementation by detoxicant reamberin. The study included 66 patients with the gastroenteric variant of moderately severe S. enteriditis infectio...
