Summary:

Purpose: to assess reproducibility of measurement of the width of lateral ventricles of the fetal brain by ultrasound investigation in the second trimester of pregnancy. Material and Methods. The volume of the 34 normal fetal brains at 18-21 weeks of gestation was retrospectively evaluated. Two experienced specialists measured the width of lateral ventricles from each fetus twice. Results. Intra-operator differences of the first specialist constituted 0,136±0,065mm, of the second specialist — 0,156±0,066mm. Inter — operator differences counted 0,191±0,062mm. Conclusion. Measurement of the width of lateral ventricles is highly reproducible, it should be performed by ultrasound investigation in the second trimester of pregnancy.

Non-pharmacological treatment effects on psychosomatic and immune regulatory mechanisms in patients with rheumatic arthritis

Summary:

Objective: comparative analysis of the influence of the methods of the lateral ophthalmotilapia and low-intensity magnetic therapy on the Central and peripheral nervous system and the immune status in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Material and methods: a comparative analysis of the impact of the 44 patients with rheumatoid arthritis aged 18 to 65 years, of which 19 patients (43.2 percent) — 1 group received low-frequency low-intensity magnetic therapy and 25 patients (56.8 per cent) — group 2, the lateral ophthalmotilapia. Results. In group 1 significantly improved memory both short-term (from 69.2±9.0 to 81,7±12,7, p=0.003), and the reminiscence relating to medium-term characteristics of memory (57,3±22 to 79,0±14,5; p=0.004). In patients of the 2nd group in the course of treatment was observed more pronounced dynamics of improvement of parameters of higher nervous activity, namely short-term memory (79,4±17 to 88,2±12, p=0.003)and reminiscences of memory (from 69.4±27 to 82.4±19,5, p=0,0016). Conclusion. Lateral ophthalmotilapia and low-frequency magnetotherapy for help expand the list of rehabilitation programs in rheumatoid arthritis, the disease having dual autoimmune and psychosomatic genesis.
