Khegai O.V., Selyanina N.V., Karakulova Y.V.


Aim. To estimate the degree of influence of non-motor manifestations on the quality of life among patients with Parkinson’s disease.

Materials and methods. In the study, the “case-control” design was used, processing of the data was conducted with nonparametric methods. Complex examination of 58 patients with Parkinson’s disease was performed. The control group included 15 healthy persons.

Results. Manifestation of cognitive, anxiety-depressive, vegetative symptoms in the main group was significantly higher than in the control. There was revealed a negative correlation dependence between the general manifestation of vegetative disorders and the social functioning indices (R = – 0.5; p = 0.001), pain intensity (R = – 0.5; p = 0.001) and psychical health (R = – 0.5; p = 0.005) that proves aggravation of the data on health components as the severity of symptoms was growing. The analyzed vegetative disorders of separate subsystems demonstrated the analogous tendencies. Severity of depressive symptoms influences the pain indices (R = – 0.4; p = 0.01) and the social functions (R = – 0.3; p = 0.03). According to unified scale, non-motor symptoms negatively influence the general health status (R = – 0.3; p = 0.001), social functioning (R= – 0.23; p = 0.004), pain assessment (R = – 0.5; p = 0.001).

Conclusions. Non-motor symptoms aggravate the quality of life, influencing both physical and psychological component of health. The absence of correlation between the duration of therapy and the severity of non-motor symptoms confirms the independence of this block of symptoms.

Characteristic features of correcting testosterone deficiency syndrome in young men with obesity

Shevchuk V.V., Kashkina N.V., Vladimirskaya N.L.


Aim. To assess the approaches to treatment of testosterone deficiency syndrome (TDS) in fertile (young) men with obesity.

Materials and methods. Comparative analysis of peculiarities of TDS correction in 120 men aged 21–35, suffering from class III abdominovisceral obesity, was performed taking into account the personified approach. Testosterone deficiency syndrome was detected in all the examined men. The examined patients were divided into two completely comparable groups: in group I, androgen replacement therapy was administered to patients, in group II – individual balanced diet, combined with individual physical loads and course of inhibitor of gastrointestinal lipases.

Results. In both groups, identical efficiency of TDS therapy in young men with obesity was established: when applying androgen replacement therapy and body mass decreasing therapy. However, the most favorable conditions for restoration of fertility are created when using complex multifactor therapy without testosterone preparations, since along with correction of erectile dysfunction, there is observed optimization of spermogram indices.

Conclusions. Differentiated approach to correction of testosterone deficiency syndrome among patients with obesity permits to optimize financial expenditure for treatment and preserve reproductive function. The body mass decrease leads to liquidation of testosterone deficiency syndrome, normalization of erectile function and lipid spectrum.

Schekolova N.B., Zinovyev A.M., Kozyukov V.G., Tokarev A.E., Nenakhova Y.V.


Aim. To prove the efficiency of using a new variant of leg tutor for correction of locomotor system pathology in treatment of equvinus foot deformity.

Materials and methods. A mean age of 23 patients with hemiparesis and equvinus foot deformity was 42.5 years. Tonus and strength of legs was assessed. Angulometric and stabilometric studies were realized.

Results. The developed model of leg tutor was used. To eliminate equvinus foot deformity, hyperextension of the knee joint was gradually eliminated using individual choice of the heel form and height, thus strengthening a quadriceps muscle of the thigh. The knee joint stability increased, the intensity of pain syndrome reduced. Arthropathies and deformities of the knee joint were prevented. Innovation of the developed model is the following: a soft glue-based responsive side of textile band “Contact” “Velcro” was stably fixed to the outside surface of posterior third of the plantar part of tutor sleeve. To the responsive side of a textile band, there were fixed removable heel pads (heels from microporous rubber of different height (from 5 to 25 mm) with a responsive hard (with hooks) part of textile band “Contact” “Velcro”). Tutor provided the ability to move and guaranteed stable holding of the extremity segments in the posterior position. There was observed a positive dynamics of changes in the muscular tonus of paralyzed leg.

Conclusions. The developed tutor model can be used in orthopedic-traumatological practice to correct equvinus foot deformity; the model efficiency is confirmed by clinical and stabilometric parameters.

Aim. To improve microbiological monitoring of disinfectant-resistance of microorganisms, excreted from clinical material in epidemiological surveillance of HCAI.

Materials and methods. Over the period from 2012 to 2016, while conducting resistance monitoring, 3320 investigations of clinical material were performed. The number of studied microorganisms was 1557. The number of excreted disinfectant-resistant microorganism strains was 337. The studies of microorganisms from clinical material for resistance were realized to 48 disinfectants of 15 groups with different reactants.

Results. During the present study it was established that microbiological monitoring, oriented for continuous monitoring of microorganisms circulation will permit to increase the number of studies in 2016 by 2.6 times, to reduce the total number of disinfectant-resistant flora in 2016 by 62 %. The greatest weight of excreted cultures was in the units of surgical profile – 48.8 %, resuscitation profile – 30 %, therapeutic one – 21.2 %. Clinical material, from which positive results were obtained, was determined by scourage (from 43.5 % in the surgical unit to 74.8 % in therapeutic), blood sterility (from 2.7 % in therapeutic units to 31.4 % in resuscitation units). Microflora, excreted from clinical material is presented predominantly by P. aeruginosa – 24.0 %, Kl. pneumoniae – 30.0 %, E. coli – from 12.9 to 22.1 %, St. aureus – from 3.0 to 7.6 %. The studies regarding disinfectant-resistance to 48 items from 15 groups of chemical compounds are the evidence of growing resistance to QAC, including QAC + amines – 24.7 %, QAC + aldehyde-containing – 6.8 %, chlorine-containing – 21.9 %. The highest resistance to disinfectants used was in Acinetobacter spp., Kl. pneumoniae, P. aeruginosa, E. coli.

Aim. To ground the personified approaches when organizing risk-oriented medical observation of animal breeding workers.

Materials and methods. The total capillary blood analysis with calculation of percentage of peripheral blood cellular composition was carried out, allergization index (AI) and immunoreactivity index (IRI) was assessed, the total number of microorganisms per 1 m3 of the air in the working zone was determined, the total microbial count (TMC) was calculated.

Results. The standard periodic medical examination of workers is sufficient with TMC value less than 500 CFU/m3, absence of chronic infectious inflammatory diseases (CIID), AI value less than 1.08 standard units, IRI value less than 13 standard units. When having a mean level of microbiological risk, CIID detection ranging from 1 to 3, AI value less than 1.08 and IRI value less than13 standard units, it is recommended to add a survey to the previous stage, using special questionnaire (attitude to work, working conditions, fatigability degree, susceptibility to allergy etc.). When having TMC value more than 2500 CFU/m3, CIID detection from 4 to 5, AI value 1.08–1.3 standard units, IRI value 13.1–15.7 standard units, an additional study of the upper airways microflora as well as immune status using tests of the first level should be realized; further recommendations on treatment-and-preventive measures in outpatient conditions should be given; with TMC value more than 5000 CFU/m3, presence of CIID – 6 and more, AI value 1.4–1.5 standard units, IRI value 15.8–18.3 standard units, it is recommended to perform immunological studies using tests of the second level with determination of susceptibility to antimicrobial preparations in hospital conditions of Occupational Pathology Center.

Conclusions. The method of personified risk-oriented medical observation of persons, working in animal breeding is offered.

Padrul M.M., Cherkasova E.V., Skryabina V.V., Berseneva S.N.


Aim. To compare the maternal mortality (MM) indices in Perm Krai with MM indices in the Russian Federation (RF) and Privolzhskiy Federal District over the past 20 years.

Materials and methods. On the basis of official statistical data, intensive indices and image indices, mean multiyear MM indices, 95 % confidence intervals, median, 25 and 75 percentile indices were calculated. The mean multiyear indices are presented as M (mean value) ± SD (standard deviation).

Results. According to official statistical data, the mean multiyear (1997–2016) indices of MM coefficient in Perm Krai tend to decline, but they do not reliably differ from the analogous indices in RF. During the last 20 years, there was noted a steady and obvious decrease in MM index on the territory of Perm Krai, especially marked for the last 2 years (2015–2016) that resulted in appearance of statistically significant differences regarding this index in Perm Krai compared to these indices in RF as a whole.

Conclusions. Perm Krai is a rather favorable region as far as rendering of medical aid to pregnant, parturient women and puerperas is concerned.

Sursyakova K.I., Safyanova T.V.


Aim. To assess manifestations and risk factors of epidemiological process of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (UTI) in patients of the urological unit of “Altai Territory Hospital for War Veterans” (ATHWV).

Materials and methods. One hundred medical records of UTI patients, treated in this urological unit were analyzed to determine the association between the UTI sickness rate and the insertion of catheters among patients, treated in the urological unit of “Altai Territory Hospital for War Veterans” during 2017.

Results. Assessment of epidemiological process in catheter-associated UTI patients of “ATHWV” urological unit resulted in the following: UTI sickness rate in “ATHWV” is associated with urinary bladder catheterization and can be interpreted as health care-associated infections since all the observed patients underwent urinary tract catheterization procedure in conditions of “ATHWV” urological unit.

Conclusions. Microbiological urine analysis with determination of antibiotic-resistance and disinfectant-resistance of the excreted pathogens should be conducted in all the patients, who undergo urinary bladder catheterization procedure since there is a high percentage of microbiologically-evidenced symptomatic UTI (35.9 %).

Aim. To determine the availability of social networks for involvement of clients in the sphere of esthetic surgery.

Materials and methods. The data of a social group from The Clinic of Esthetic Surgery “EstMed” in the social network vkontakte were analyzed.

Results. The number of subscribers was 533, the main contingent – women aged 25 to 44 years; 48 % of users look through the group posts by means of mobile devices. The participants of this group were not satisfied with the form and dimension of their breast, pendulous abdomen, wrinkles on the face, “ears” on the femurs and form of buttocks; 95 % voted for plastic surgery as an appropriate way to fight with aging. Most subscribers were ready for surgery; 50 % of interrogated persons consider psychologist’s consultation to be necessary. The greatest number of persons consider buttocks, breast and legs to be the most sexual part of the body. One third of the questioned persons have breast size number one, but the majority of interrogated persons consider that men prefer breast size number three. Posts, containing jokes, arouse the greatest interest, information not concerned with the subject matter of the group – the least.

Conclusions. When used professionally, social networks can be a strong instrument to involve clients.

Kuznetsov S.V., Kuznetsov V.F., Makunina E.V., Kasimova R.M., Tyutyunschikova V.D., Obernebesova T.P.


Aim. To develop the testing algorithm in conditions of radial eight-arm maze and to study the effect of preparation “Cycloferon®” on cognitive processes in experimental animals in conditions of repeated training.

Materials and methods. The study was conducted on experimental animals – white outbred male rats (n = 21) aged 8–9 months using the original method. “Radial eight-arm maze” was used as experimental laboratory device. During the experiment, to activate searching behavior, daily nutrition regime was reduced by 15–20 %. To fortify, milk product “Thickened milk” was used. At the first experimental stage, the animals received a typical vivarium ration. During the second part of this study, the rats underwent repeated training after taking “Cycloferon®”, calculated for each rat by the mass – 0.77 mg per 100 g of the animal body mass; after that the rats’ spatial memory was assessed.

Results. Taking into account the results of the second part of experiment, statistically significant tendency to increase was revealed among animals with positive result of testing with one-sided Fisher criterion (p = 0.037). No correlation between taking “Cycloferon®” and the number of repeated entering of the arms and the total number of entering of the arms was detected (p > 0.05) that proves the formation of purposive movement.

Conclusions. A reliable tendency to increase in the number of animals, trained during the repeated testing against the background of using “Cycloferon®”, which possesses immunomodulating effect as well as antioxidant action, confirms the actuality of applying the offered method while studying cognitive effect of substances, requiring long-term introduction.

Cortical superficial siderosis is a new MRT-phenomenon in neurological practice: clinical observations and review of literature

Kulesh A.A., Gorst N.K., Drobakha V.E., Kaileva N.A., Shestakov V.V.


Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is a specific variant of cerebral small vessel disease, associated with high risk of spontaneous intracerebral bleedings, cognitive disorders and hemorrhagic complications of antithrombotic and thrombolytic therapy. One of key markers of CAA is a relatively rare neurovisual phenomenon – cortical superficial siderosis (CSS). Two clinical cases of CAA with CSS are described in the present paper. In the first case, typical CAA complication were observed: intracerebral bleeding and cognitive disorders. In the second case, CAA was symptom-free. Analysis of clinical cases and literature data shows phenotypic heterogeneity of CAA and confirms advisability of routine use of paramagnetic conditions of MRT to examine patients with cerebrovascular disease.

Clinicodiagnostic problems of hepatic fibrosis/cirrhosis

Schekotova A.P., Bulatova I.A., Paducheva S.V.


The problems of hepatic fibrosis/cirrhosis diagnosis are discussed in the paper. At the modern stage, diagnosis of chronic hepatic diseases is based on laboratory, instrumental, morphological methods of study and calculated indices. Puncture biopsy of the liver is referred to the most reliable diagnostic methods. However, there are some complexities while implementing this procedure, which do not permit to use morphological studies for dynamic observation. The method of ultrasound elastometry is offered as an alternative to puncture biopsy of the liver. However, it also has some technical limits that resulted in development of noninvasive, in particular, laboratory methods of hepatic fibrosis/cirrhosis diagnosis.
