The potential of hemolasertherapy for the correction of clinical and functional disturbances in psoriatic patients

Shakhova A.S., Kulikov A.G., Korsunskaya I.M., Shakhova A.S., Kulikov A.G., Korsunskaya I.M.

Abstract

The present study was designed to compare the efficacy of the treatment of 104 patients with psoriasis allocated to three groups, one managed by PUVA therapy, another by intravenous laser irradiation of the blood, and the third by the combination of these two methods. Analysis of the data obtained has demonstrated that inflammatory symptoms of psoriasis rapidly regressed under the influence of laser irradiation while the combination of the two methods further accelerated the regression of infiltrative manifestations. Intravenous laserotherapy stimulated activity of the main antioxidant enzymes in erythrocytes that play an important role in the antioxidative protection of these cells. In contrast, PUVA therapy alone did not cause changes in the antioxidant status of the patients. Thermography revealed lowering of the temperature at the affected skin areas under effect of the treatment in all three groups of the patients, but this effect was reached quicker and was more pronounced after 3-4 seances of laserotherapy than after PUVA therapy. The results of the study indicate that the introduction of intravenous laser irradiation of the blood into the combined treatment of psoriasis not only accelerates regression of the main clinical manifestations of the disease but also exerts beneficial action on microcirculation and disbalance of pro- and antioxidant systems.

The combined application of radon therapy and peloid therapy for the rehabilitation of the patients presenting with seronegative spondyloarthritis

Barnatskiy V.V., Barnatsky V.V.

Abstract

The remedial therapeutic complex including radon baths and low-temperature peloid application significantly (by 24%) increased the efficacy of rehabilitation of the patients presenting with seronegative spondyloarthritis, reduced the activity of the disease, exerted well-apparent anti-inflammatory and analgesic action, markedly enhanced the functional and adaptive potential of the patients and improved their quality of life. These effects were much more pronounced than in the case of isolated application of radon baths (1.5 kBq/l) or low-temperature peloids. The study has demonstrated high therapeutic efficacy of the combined treatment with aqueous radon baths and low-temperature peloids in the patients presenting with reactive arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis with the predominant affection of peripheral joints.

Negodaeva E.V., Evstigneeva L.P., Antyuf'ev V.F., Negodaeva E.V., Evstigneeva L.P., Antyufiev V.F.

Abstract

The study was designed to compare the results of efficacy of physical exercises on the quadriceps muscle of thigh and its electrostimulation using sinusoidal modulated currents (SMC). The secondary objective was to evaluate results of the combined application of these two methods in patients presenting with knee joint osteoarthrosis (gonarthrosis). SMC stimulation of the quadriceps muscle of thigh was shown to induce positive dynamics estimated based on a few international analog scales. However, the statistically significant changes were observed only after a series of special exercises and their combination with SMC stimulation of the quadriceps muscle of thigh in the patients suffering from gonarthrosis.

Efanov O.I., Voynova E.M., Efanov O.I., Voinova E.M.

Abstract

A total of 36 patients with mild periodontitis were available for observation. The objective of the study was to estimate the clinical efficiency of the combined application of constant current and metrogil electrophoresis for the treatment of periodontitis. The therapeutic efficiency of the method was evaluated from the dynamics of clinical symptoms and the results of functional tests. The inclusion of metrogil electrophoresis in the combined treatment of mild periodontitis was shown to significantly improve the oral cavity conditions and reduce the duration of treatment compared with simple application of the same preparation.

Musaev A.o., Bagirova S.A., Muradov R.o., Ragimova A.g., Musaev A.V., Bagirova S.A., Muradov R.V., Ragimova A.E.

Abstract

The objective of the study involving 70 patients with facial nerve neuropathy (FNN) was to evaluate the immunomodulating action and clinical efficacy of laser therapy (LT) alone or in combination with pharmacotherapy. The therapeutic effect of laser therapy was apparent regardless of the character of immune insufficiency in the patients with facial nerve neuropathy in the form of restoration of the facial muscle functions and the improvement of certain parameters of the immune system. It is concluded that the pronounced corrective action of laser therapy when used for the combined treatment of immune disturbances results in their elimination even in patients with severe FNN. As a result, the overall efficacy of the treatment increases while the overall duration of the rehabilitation period decreases.

Yarustovskaya O.V., Kulikov A.G., Anan'ev V.A., Rosseykina M.G., Yarustovskaya O.V., Kulikov A.G., Ananiev V.A., Rosseikina M.G.

Abstract

The objective of the present work was to study the efficacy of the earlier introduction of a running pulsed low-frequency magnetic field (RLFMF) in the program of traditional therapy of acute postpartum endometritis (PE) after the delivery by Cesarean section. The study included 124 women presenting with acute postpartum endometritis following the Cesarean section at weeks 36-40 of the pregnancy. All the patients were divided into two matched groups. Group 1 was comprised of 70 women with acute postpartum endometritis after the Cesarean section who were treated using a combination of traditional therapy and physiotherapy (using a running pulsed low-frequency magnetic field). The women in the control group 2 (n = 54) in the same postpartum condition were managed with traditional therapy including broad-spectrum antibiotics in the absence of physiotherapy. The integral estimation of clinical symptomatology and the results of the study gives evidence of the higher efficacy of the combined treatment of the patients with acute postpartum endometritis with the application of the running pulsed low-frequency magnetic field compared with traditional antibiotic therapy.

Rogozyan B.N., Efimenko N.V., Kaysinova A.S., Danilov S.R., Rogozyan B.N., Efimenko N.V., Kaisinova A.S., Danilov S.R.

Abstract

The authors report the results of experimental studies carried out for the characteristic of the physico-chemical properties of the seaweeds from the Anapa region. It was shown that these algae may be regarded as mineralized substrates containing biologically active compounds and exhibiting a weakly alkaline reaction. After storage for half a year, they acquire the composition and properties similar to those of therapeutic sapropel muds from the Lunevskoye deposit. It is concluded that the seaweeds from the Anapa region may be used for the purpose of balneotherapeutic treatment.
