Among the non-calcaemic effects of vitamin D, a significant role is played by its impact on


CRYSTAL-OPTICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND FEATURES OF THE MINERAL COMPOSITION OF URINARY TRACT STONES

Abstract :

This investigation reports the mineralogy and possible pathological significance of urinary stones removed from patients in Fars province, Iran. X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and polarizing microscope (PM) techniques were used to investigate the mineralogical compositions of urinary stones. The identified mineral components include whewellite, weddellite, hydroxyapatite, uricite and cystine. These techniques revealed that the whewellite and uricite were the most


FEATURES OF ANTIBIOTIC ACCUMULATION IN APPENDIX DEPENDING ON THE METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION AND BLOOD SUPPLY

Abstract :

In respect that, lack dynamic of morbidity incidence of acute appendicitis and frequency of postoperative complications, against the backdrop of increasing the number of antibiotics. The problem of prevention of purulent-inflammatory complications during its surgical treatment remains relevant. The authors compared the intensity of accumulation of ceftriaxone in the appendix tissues depending on the method of injection. It turned out that with the intramuscular injection of ceftriaxone in 1&n


REHABILITATION THERAPY OF PATIENTS WITH POST COVID SYNDROME IN NAKHCHIVAN “DUZDAG” PHYSIOTHERAPY CENTER

Abstract :

COVID-19 patients may experience disability related to Intensive Care Unit (ICU) admission or due to immobilization. We assessed pre-post impact on physical performance of multi-component therapeutic exercise for post-COVID-19 rehabilitation in a post-acute care facility. A 30-minute daily multicomponent therapeutic exercise intervention combined resistance, endurance and balance training. Outcomes: Short Physical Performance Battery; Barthel Index, ability to walk unassisted and single leg s


NON-INVASIVE ASSESSMENT OF VASCULAR FUNCTION IN PATIENTS WITH CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE

Abstract :

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have significantly increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) compared to the general population, and this is only partially explained by traditional CVD risk factors. Vascular dysfunction is an important non-traditional risk factor, characterized by vascular endothelial dysfunction (most commonly assessed as impaired endothelium-dependent dilation [EDD]) and stiffening of the large elastic arteries. While various techniques exist to assess EDD a


СOMPARATIVE CHARACTERISTICS OF CLINICAL AND DIAGNOSTIC SIGNS IN PATIENTS WITH ADENOMYOSIS AND REPRODUCTIVE DYSFUNCTION

Abstract :

The aim of this review is to clarify the relative association between adenomyosis and infertility and the possible treatment for an infertile patient. Although adenomyosis is detected more often in women of late reproductive age, its influence on pregnancy rates is important, especially considering the tendency to delay pregnancy among women in developed countries. In this article, we present a critical analysis of the literature data concerning the impact of adenomyosis on fertility. The pos


COVID-19-RELATED ASPECTS OF MORPHOLOGICAL AND PATHOPHYSIOLOGICAL CHANGES IN THE KIDNEYS

CHANGES OF BLOOD PROTEINS IN DIABETES MELLITUS DEPENDING ON THE SEVERITY OF THE DISEASE

Abstract :

Multiple factors are involved in the development and progression of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DMII) to DMII with metabolic syndrome (MetS) and cardiovascular complications. To identify some of these factors, we aim to investigate the changes in erythrocyte membrane Na+/K+-ATPase activity, serum glucose, insulin, lipid profile, hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c), high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), anthropometric measurements, and blood pressure in DMII with and without MetS. This cross-sectiona
