Purpose. The purpose of the work is an investigation of biophysical properties of liquors of patients with a craniocereberal trauma. This investigation has been directed on definition of a degree of a brain defeat, the forecast of the further current of disease and development of methods treatment. Materials and methods. Liquor was undertaken from 62 patients with the diagnosis of an craniocereberal trauma. Research of thermo-impedancemetry of liquors was made with the help of equipment for measurement of temperature dependence of an electric impedance of ditches with a researched liquid. On the -shaped site?function of dependence of a full impedance from temperature the was observed. This site is due to globule-ball phase transition in liquor albumens. Result. It is shown, that numerical values of parameters of phase transition correlate with albumen concentration in liquor. Values of correlation factors are directly proportional to concentration of albumen. Conclusion. It is established, that numerical values of thermo-impedancemetry parameters of curves are directly connected to a degree of a brain defeat and can be used as diagnostic and prognostic criteria.

The review points out that craniocerebral trauma is one of the most current problems in medicine, reasoned for its occurrence, high level of temporary disability, patients' incapacity, and considerable death-rate. Therefore, study of different aspects of craniocerebral trauma has not only medical but also social-economic significance. The authors mark that prevalence frequency of craniocerebral trauma can vary in regions of our state and abroad, it depends on a great number of factors — age, time of a day, trauma's mechanisms. Research of craniocerebral trauma epidemiology is a necessary basis for organization of rational aid for suffered and adequate measures development for primary and second prophylaxis of central nervous system disorders.
