Bautin A.E.
Abstract
The aim. To estimate efficacious of combined application of lung recruitment maneuver (LR) and surfactant administration for the treatment of ARDS after cardiac surgery. Materials and methods. 33 cardiac surgery patients with ARDS were included in to prospective, controlled non-randomized study. LR technique was used in 14 patients, who were included into the "LR" group. In 19 cases LR were combined with endobronchial administration of surfactant (Surfactant-BL, ”Biosurf” Russia), these patients were included into the "LR and surfactant" group. Results. Significant difference from baseline FiO 2 observed after 12 h in "LR and surfactant" group and after 24 h in "LR" group. Significant decrease from the baseline PEEP was observed after 48 h in "LR and surfactant" group and after 72 h in "LR" group. The duration of respiratory support was shorter in the "LR and surfactant" group: 87,5 ± 35,3 h vs 175,3 ± 52,5, p <0,001. There was significant difference in the incidences of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP): 10.5% in the "LR and surfactant" group and 42.9% in the "LR" group, p <0,05. Furthermore, we found significant difference in the ICU stay period between groups: 132,5 ± 42,2 h in the "LR and surfactant" group vs 282,5 ± 110,2 h in the "LR" group, p <0,01. There was no significant difference between two groups In mortality rate: 3 (15.8%) in the "LR and surfactant" group and 3 (21.4%) in the "LR" group. Conclusions. The combination of LR and surfactant administration decrease the time of respiratory support and ICU stay, reduce the risk of VAP.

COMORBID CONDITIONS IN PRIMARY OBESITY AS A POSSIBLEPREDICTOR OF METABOLIC SYNDROME IN CHILDREN
Mazurov V.I., Gonchar N.V.
Abstract
Obesity and its attendant neurohormonal regulatory violations and play a leading role in the development and progression of insulin resistance (IR), which is the principal risk factors of the metabolic syndrome (MS). Identifying predictors of MS in childhood is of great clinical importance, since the adequate treatment of this condition is reversible. The aim of the study was to investigate the clinical manifestations, metabolic and hormonal disorders in primary obesity, depending on the presence of comorbid conditions in children. In the endocrinology department at Children's Hospital №1 of St. Petersburg in 2008-2011 observed 20 children aged 8 to 17 years (boys - 14, girls - 6) with primary obesity. The survey included children study of heredity; objective examination of the analysis of physical development, evaluation of blood pressure; study hemogram, biochemical analysis of blood parameters and hormonal status; the results of instrumental studies of the cardiovascular system and digestive tract. Patients have formed two groups: 13 children with primary obesity without comorbid conditions (group 1) and 7 children with complicated comorbidity primary form of obesity (group 2). Isolation of children in Group 2 of the total weight of obese patients was conducted taking into account the identification of IR. Studies have shown that the complicated form of primary comorbidity of obesity was more common in males and is characterized by hemodynamic and hormonal changes indicating a possible risk of developing MS. At the same time, the expression of lipid metabolism, the frequency of functional pathology of the cardiovascular system and digestive tract diseases did not differ among children in group 1 and group 2.

CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF SLC22A1 RS622342 GENETIC POLYMORPHISMIN TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS PATIENTS, TAKING METFORMIN
Baranov V.L., Vorokhobina N.V., Abulula M., Zagorodnikova K.A., Topanova A.A.
Abstract
One of the key proteins that determine the pharmacokinetics of metformin is OCT1. rs622342 polymorphism in the gene SLC22A1 (OCT1) can reduce the expression of this protein. The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical significance of rs622342 in people with diabetes mellitus (DM) type 2, taking metformin. In 94 patients dynamics of the main indicators of glycemic control and body mass index were sudied over 6 months of treatment. At the end of the study 33 of 49 patients (67,3%) with wild-type variant of rs622342 (genotype AA) and 17 of 45 (37,7%) with polymorphic variants of the gene SLC22A1 (AC- and CC-genotypes) were taken metformin only and had Hb A1c levels less than 7,0%. Remaining patients required a second hypoglycemic agent or had Hb A1c levels 7,0% or more. Calculating odds ratios showed that the presence of AC- or CC- genotypes of rs622342 in the gene SLC22A1 increases the risk of poor clinical effect of metformin 3,4-fold (p = 0,004). Conclusion: The presence of a polymorphic allele C ( rs622342 ) in the gene SLC22A1 in patients with type 2 diabetes is associated with poor clinical effect of metformin monotherapy.

EFFECT OF CYTOCHROME P450 2C9 GENE POLYMORPHISMS ON INDIVIDUAL SENSITIVITY TO GLICLAZIDE IN PATIENTS WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS
Abulula M., Baranov V.L., Vorokhobina N.V.
Abstract
Cytochrome P450 2C9, encoded by the gene CYP2C9 , is a key enzyme for the metabolism of most sulfonylurea (SU). It is known that the polymorphisms CYP2C9*2 and CYP2C9*3 are associated with decreased activity of cytochrome, which leads to an increase in plasma concentrations of SU and reduction in its clearance. The aim of the study was to assess the impact CYP2C9 polymorphisms on individual sensitivity to gliclazide in patients with type 2 diabetes. The study included 74 patients with newly diagnosed diabetes. For all patients gliclazide in a dose of 30 or 60 mg/day was prescribed. Dose titration was carried out for 6 months of observation. If necessary other glucose-lowering therapy (a combination of drugs or insulin) were prescribed. Following the results of study, all patients had achieved the target values of Hb A1c. In comparison with patients who had a polymorphic allele in the gene, patients with wild-type CYP2C9 had lower effective dose of gliclazide, more often required prescription of large (90-120 mg) doses of drug or other antihyperglycemic therapy. Conclusion: The presence of a polymorphic allele in the gene CYP2C9 in homo- or heterozygous state is associated with a decrease in the effective dose of gliclazide, used as monotherapy in patients with type 2 diabetes.

ATRIAL FIBRILLATION IN PATIENTS WITH INFERIOR MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION
Radha B., Sayganov S.A., Gromiko T.Y.
Abstract
Objective: To elucidate the mechanism of atrial fibrillation and evaluate left atrium function after restoration of sinus rhythm in patients with acute posterior wall myocardial infarction ( MI). Materials and Methods: The study included 53 patients with posterior wall MI.All patients were divided into 2 groups. The first group consisted of 33 a people with paroxysms of atrial fibrillation (AF), and the second included 20 control subjects without arrhythmia. All percutaneous intervention was performed within the first 24 hours. Patients were evaluated for time and duration of paroxysms, the size of the heart chambers and the recovery time of the left atrium (LA)function. Results: Patients with posterior wall myocardial infarction developed AF in the early stages of the disease (in 91% on the first day), with short duration of paroxysms, stopped spontaneously and often within 1 hour (in 11 people). There were no significant differences in the size of the heart chambers, left ventricular contractility and hemodynamic disturbances in patients of both groups. AF in most cases developed in patients without left ventricular failure (in 27 people; 82%). Wherein the proximal right coronary artery occlusion was observed more frequently in patients with atrial fibrillation, than in the control group (17 vs 2; p <0,001). Approximately half patients(16 ) with AF before the appearance of atrial fibrillation bradysystolya of atria (less than 50 in 1 min) was recorded, due to acute sinus node dysfunction. After the reversion of sinus rhythm mechanical function of the LA was absent in only 4 people with left ventricular failure. Effective systole of LA was restored only 7 days after reversion to sinus rhythm. The rare occurrence of mechanical dysfunction after discontinuation of arrhythmia indicates a low probability of thrombosis and embolism in the systemic circulation. Conclusion: In cases of patients with posterior wall localization of MI main causes of AF include acute ischemia of atria due to occlusion of the right coronary artery above the branches supplying atrium. Atrial bradysystolya due to acute sinus node dysfunction often contributes to the development of AF as a substitute atrial rate (acute syndrome of tachy-bradycardia). In case of patients with posterior wall MI AF episodes were rarely accompanied by hemodynamic disturbances and the risk of systemic thromboembolism after reversion to sinus rhythm was low.

POSSIBLE ROLE OF GENETIC POLYMORPHISMS FOR INDIVIDUALSENSITIVITY TO SIMVASTATIN IN INITIAL THERAPEUTIC DOSE
Zagorodnikova K.A., Topanova A.A., Natas M.A., Shumkov V.A.
Abstract
Despite proven benefits of statins their effects and tolerability differ significantly in different patients. Genetic polymorphisms in genes of metabolizing enzymes, especially CYP3A5, and transporter proteins, especially OATP1B1, represent important factor for these changes. In our study we investigated influence of genetic polymorphisms on effects and safety of simvastatin 20 mg daily in 60 patients with dislipidemia. We observed reverse correlation of effects and adverse effects of simvastatin in our patients. Among CYP3A5*1 carriers we observed a tendency to less pronounced lipid-lowering effects (1,2 vs 2,9 mcmol/l). Our data may indicate importance of genetic polymorphisms even when statins are use in minimal therapeutic doses.

COMPARATIVE ESTIMATION OF LASER COAGULATION EFFICIENCY IN MACULAR AND MICROPHOTOCOAGULATION OF HIGH DENSITYIN DIABETIC MACULOPATHY TREATMENT
Izmaylov A.S., Kotsur T.V.
Abstract
The modern standard of treatment of clinically significant diabetic macular edema is macular laser photocoagulation was suggested in the reports of the Early Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS, 1985-1990). Subthreshold microphotocoagulation (MicroPulase) leads to developing barely visible or invisible retinal burns and also has been shown to be effective in treating macular edema with no side effects comparing with ETDRS methodic (retinal pigment and choroidal atrophy, decreasing of retinal sensitivity). Effectiveness of microphotocoagulation may arise in high density laser applications, however in modern literature exists rare publications concerning this question.

USE OF CROSS-SECTIONAL DATA TO ESTIMATE FORCE OF INFECTIONFOR HIV INFECTION AND HEPATITIS C - ABSENCE OF CONSTANT RISK
Barinova A.N., Plavinski S.L., Vingradova N.H.
Abstract
Injecting drug users (IDU) have high risk of acquisition of HIV and other blood-borne viruses, because they frequently share needles, syringes and other injecting paraphernalia. The article describes methodology of estimating force of infection for blood-borne diseases from data on prevalence and injection length. Based on results from 5429 IDU surveyed between 2006 and 2013 it was found that force of infection is at maximum during first months after starting injecting - 0,38 (95%CI=0,24 .. 0,51) for HIV infection and 1,03 (95%CI=0,61 .. 1,46) for hepatitis C. After that risk of infection significantly decrease but is not zero. Also basic reproductive rate by regions and periods of study was estimates. Importance of this approach for public health is demonstrated.

Abstract
The article is devoted to the first results of the specialized Center for management of pregnancy and childbirth in minors «Little Mother» based in SPbGBUZ «Maternity Hospital №10». Results of the study generally confirmed the literature data on the high frequency of complications of pregnancy and childbirth in adolescents but for those who were regularly observed in the center, especially from the early pregnancy, severity of complications was lower (dominated by light level of preeclampsia and anemia); intrapartum frequency of rapid delivery, perineotomy, abnormal bleeding, forceps or vacuum - extraction of the fetus, as well as frequency of child birth in a state of asphyxia was significantly less. Since the establishment of the Center, no minor patient did not abandon the child in a maternity hospital. Improvement in the quality of medical care for adolescents is demonstrated if they are concentrated in one institution, where the atmosphere and organization of medical care takes into account clinical, social and psychological characteristics of pregnant adolescents.

Mineralocorticoid hypertension, including Conn's syndrome, occurs significantly more frequently than is recognized. Despite modern diagnostic capabilities and the availability of treatment methods, it cannot be diagnosed simply because (they) know little about it. Recall clinico-pathological variants of mineralocorticoid hypertension and the peculiarities of their management. Here is a fairly typical clinical case Conn's syndrome, recognized for many years later than it needed to be done. Pay attention to the fact that mineralocorticoid hypertension should be considered in patients with resistant nature of the response to treatment.
