Sandakov Y.P.


Aim. To study the peculiarities of asking for medical care by patients from among those dead at home, who had been under follow-up observation.

Materials and methods. The data, received from ambulatory medical records of 100 dead at home patients with follow-up, were analyzed using the methods of descriptive and inductive statistics.

Results. A mean age of death was 74.9 ± 13.4 years, men – 65.8 ± 14.1 years, women – 79.2 ± 10.9 years. Cardiovascular diseases were the cause of follow-up observation in 78 % of cases and the cause of death in 85 %; in 30 % of patients the disease was detected while carrying out prophylactic medical examination. A mean duration of disease by the moment of death was 13.0 ± 8.0 years, among pensioners 13.7 ± 8.5 years, in able-bodied  persons 9.6 ± 4.3 years. A mean duration of follow-up observation was 9.2 ± 5.8 years. An average number of planned visits was 2.8 ± 0.89, but the number of real visits during the last year of follow-up observation was 2.4 ± 1.2. Disability was registered in 77.6 % of patients, concomitant diseases – in all patients. For the last year, exacerbations were recorded in 92 % of patients, emergency calls – in 80 %, hospitalization events – 52 %, including 55.8 % – urgent ones.

Conclusions. The absence of significant difference regarding the duration of disease between pensioners and able-bodied patients (т = 0.16, р = 1.43) as well as the absence of correlation between the age and duration of disease (χ2 = 0.19, p = 0.2) indirectly prove the influence of duration of disease on its outcome, but not the age. Attendance, characterizing clinical loyalty to treatment, does not depend on age (χ2 = –0.19,  р = 0.18), sex (т = 1.0, р = 0.32), way of detecting disease (f = 0.9, p = 0.4), class of main disease (f = 0.91,  p = 0.44), duration of disease (χ2 = –0.13, р = 0.49), exacerbations (χ2 = –0.17, р = 0.24), concomitant diseases (χ2 = 0.006, р = 0.9). The number of emergency calls, hospitalizations, urgent hospitalizations does not depend on duration of follow-up observation, regularity and number of real visits to a doctor (p > 0.05) that indicates unsatisfactory quality of follow-up observation.

Timoshenkova A.V., Kuz"min M.V., Katanov E.S.


Aim. To evaluate the biliostatic properties of modern topical hemostatic agents used in liver surgery in experiment.

Materials and methods. The analysis of applied topical hemostatics in medical institutions of Chuvash Republic with liver resection is performed. A number of studies on the evaluation of adhesion properties in Vistar rats weighing 180-200 g were carried out using a device for determining the hermeticity of the liver stump by hydroporation. A comparative evaluation of the elasticity and adhesion strength of hemostatic agents was carried out. The polyurethane glue for medical purposes was developed and studied in the experiment.

Results. To prevent bleeding and bile leakage, the most commonly used adhesive compositions are "Bioglue", "Tissucol", a gemostatic sponge, "Tachocomb", a gelatin sponge "Spongostan", a cellulose plate "Sergisel". The adhesive adhesives "Bioglue", "Tissucol" and the hemostatic sponge "Tachocomb" and the polyurethane composition of medical purpose with an adhesive strength of more than 600 mm of water column (mmW) at p <0.05 have the highest adhesion properties at p <0,05, based on the experimental. It has been established that a glue composition "Bioglue" and a polyurethane adhesive composition have a significant adhesive strength (more than 4.6 kgf / cm2) and elasticity (more than 140%).

Conclusions. For the reliable prevention of bile leakage after liver resection, it is necessary to use topical hemostatic agents with an adhesive strength of more than 600 mm. water column. More preferable in this case is the use of adhesive compositions; they have good elasticity, viscosity and form a large area of contact with the bile ducts as compared with the plates and sponges.
