Quality of life as a criterion of o rehabilitation efficiency (on the example of patients with spine osteochondrosis)
Petrova N.G., Yarovaya V.A.
Abstract

Background. Degenerative dystrophic diseases (DDD) of the spine occupy a leading place in the structure of the causes of chronic back pain. The widespread prevalence of osteochondrosis and high primary disability determine the medical, social and economic significance of the problem. An important direction of its solution is a scientifically based system of rehabilitation measures. The existing wide arsenal of means of rehabilitative impact dictates the need to assess their effectiveness, for which, in turn, various techniques can also be used. The aim of the study was to assess the quality of life of patients with osteochondrosis before and after rehabilitation. Materials and methods. The patient sample included 50 people with diagnosis of osteochondrosis of the spine. In the structure of respondents, 58.0% were women, 42.0% — men. The proportion of individuals: up to 30 years old was 26.0%; 31–45 years old — 58.0%; 46 years and older — 14.0%. 48.0% of patients are diagnosed with cervical spinal dislocation; 10.0% of patients — thoracic; 18.0% of the lumbar spine 24.0% of patients — common osteochondrosis. 96.0% of patients received rehabilitation measures. They were complex and included drug therapy (100.0%), manual therapy (56.0%), massage (58.0%), healing fitness (24.0%), physiotherapy (amplipulse therapy-10.0%; electrophoresis — 6.0%; laser therapy — 6.0%), etc. After treatment, the majority of patients (56.0%) had positive dynamics, 28.0% did not have dynamics, and 16.0% were negative. An analysis of the quality of life of patients before and after rehabilitation measures showed the following. Results. The total score (GH) increased from 64.6 to 67.6 points. The physical component increased from 47.5 to 51.8 points; psychological — from 45.1 to 45.6 points. The dynamics of these indicators differed among patients of different sexes, ages, with different diagnoses. Conclusions. Assessing the quality of life using the questionnaire allows you to objectify the effectiveness of the treatment.

Gulina O.V., Kiryukhina S.V., Podsevatkin V.G., Kukina G.N., Labunskiy D.A., Yurasova Y.Y., Kolmykova N.А.
Abstract

Background. Disability is one of the most important medical and social problems. According to the latest data, more than 1 billion people in the world are disabled according to WHO data in 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults aged 18 and older were overweight, of which more than 650 million were obese (11% of men and 15% of women). According to WHO, it is expected that children with obesity will increase to 70 million by 2025. Obesity in early childhood it is most severe and less treatable, and can also lead to serious complications: hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and other diseases. The aim: we believe that the study of the population of disabled people due to various diseases with obesity in various nosologies is important for the development of comprehensive measures for the prevention of morbidity, early diagnosis and rehabilitation of this group of people. Materials and methods. We conducted a comprehensive study of children with the status of “disabled child” and initially examined in the ITU Bureau No. 4 for the Republic of Mordovia. The study group included overweight and obese children with various diseases. Information from the statistical collections of Rosstat and approved forms of state statistics No. 7-Sobes for 2019 were also included. Results. In 2019, 1065 children were examined in 4 bureaus of the ITU RM; of these, 730 children were examined to determine the category of “disabled child”, which was 68.5% (first: 262; 35.9%, second: 468; 64.1%). The largest proportion of children recognized as disabled for the first time is young children from 0 to 3 years (45,2%). In the structure of primary disability of this age category, congenital malformations account for 31% (28 people out of 90). The proportion of disabled people in the age category from 4 to 7 years is 16.5%. The proportion of disabled people in the age group 15 years and older is 9.5%. The first place is occupied by diseases of the endocrine system (42.1%), the second by diseases of the musculoskeletal system (26.3%). The largest number of patients with primary examination are obese with disorders of neuromuscular, skeletal and movement-related (statodynamic) functions ― 10 children (5%); with disorders of the cardiovascular system ― 8 children (4%); and disorders of the endocrine system ― 7 children (3.5%). When re-examining children with various pathologies, the ranking places are occupied by violations of the same functions ― neuromuscular (6.1%), cardiovascular (3.7%), endocrine (2.5%). In other persistent disorders of body functions, there are also obese patients in both groups, but their number is very small. Conclusions. When monitoring for 2018–2019, we see an increase in the number of obese children with various functional disorders. Most often, obese children recognized as disabled are found in groups with impaired statodynamic and cardiovascular functions, most likely this is due to restricted movement. And such patients are recommended to follow the principles of a healthy diet more carefully, no matter what aggravates the existing condition. And thus, in a short time to carry out all the necessary rehabilitation measures and in some cases reduce the period of disability.

Rodoman G.V., Shalaeva T.I., Sumedi I.R., Sviridenko N.V., Meloyan M.M.
Abstract

Background. The problems of treating recurrent nodular goiter are still relevant. The technical difficulties of the intervention on the neck tissues altered by the scarring process and the comorbid background of patients cause an unacceptably high risk of complications of traditional surgical treatment and, as a result, a long and difficult rehabilitation period and high costs for the treatment of patients who have undergone surgery for recurrent goiter. Alternative methods, such as sclerotherapy, which reduce the risk of complications, have been successfully used in patients with non-operated thyroid, but the possibilities of minimally invasive destruction of recurrent nodules have not been studied enough, and it is not known whether it is as safe and effective as sclerotherapy of non-recurrent nodules. The aim of the study was to compare the efficacy and safety of treatment of recurrent and non-recurrent nodular goiter using sclerotherapy. Materials and methods. The study included 30 previously not operated patients with nodular goiter and 30 patients with recurrent nodular goiter. All of them underwent 4 courses of sclerotherapy, each of which included 5 sessions with a frequency of 1 session per week; polidocanol was used as a sclerosant. Results. The analysis showed that the efficiency of reduction of nodules did not decrease in patients with recurrent goiter, despite severe sclerotic changes in the tissues. The size of the nodules and the volume of thyroid tissue were reduced during sclerotherapy, regardless of the presence of a history of thyroid surgery, as well as the cure of functional autonomy and relief of symptoms of neck compression. The tolerability of sclerotherapy also did not depend on the presence of recurrent goiter, and the rate of complications was the same (0.8%). Complications of sclerotherapy were not serious in any case. Conclusions. Thus, sclerotherapy of recurrent nodules is a good alternative to traditional surgical treatment; it is not inferior in efficiency and safety to sclerotherapy of nodules in a non-operated thyroid. Its use will significantly reduce the rehabilitation period and the cost of treating patients with recurrent nodular goiter.

Abstract

In the President's Address to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation in 2020 V.V. Putin clearly outlined the improvement in the social sphere, including material support for the family at the birth of the first and next children. Undoubtedly, such measures will help increase the population in our country. On the healthcare side, there is a potential need to address the increased burden on obstetric and child health providers. An important role in the provision of medical care is played by the rehabilitation service for newborns with various perinatal diseases.
