COMPLEX TREATMENT OF THE CONCOMITANT ALTERNATING SQUINT IN CHILDREN

Abstract


We examined 200 patients with squint having received conventional treatment and 90 patients, which together with conventional treatment were treated by infrasonic pneumomassage, infrasonic phonophoresis and colour stimulation. A course of treatment included 10 sessions, and the duration of treatment made 2 weeks. The treatment resulted in increase of the number of patients with binocular vision up to 74.4%, and the number of patients with monocular vision decreased to 26.6%. The angle of squint diminished in every second patient and completely disappeared in every fifth. Dynamics was absent in 25.6% of cases.
Negative results were absent in all the patients. Application of infrasonic pneumomassage, infrasonic phonophoresis and colour photostimulation allows obtaining stable results, and efficiency of the suggested treatment made 52.2%.
