Influence of seasonality on lipid peroxidation processes in pregnant women

Lipid peroxidation (LPO) reactions are a natural link of various metabolic processes. LPO activation is one of the important pathogenetic mechanisms of the onset and development of free radical pathology. In addition, highly sensitive LPO processes are actively involved in the body's responses to the action of various environmental factors [6, 7]. The intensity of LPO processes was judged by the content of its final product, malondialdehyde (MDA) [8].

Studying the possibilities of combined application of digital and traditional technologies in orthopedic dentistry

CAD/CAM – a modern technology for the production of dentures using computer-aided design and automated manufacturing on machine tools is one of the most promising areas in prosthetic dentistry. By using CAD/CAM technology, it is possible to produce various dental prostheses of the highest precision, excellent biocompatibility and flawless aesthetics with high work automation. Using CAD/CAM systems, it is possible to create single crowns, short and long bridges, telescopic crowns, individual abutments for implants, recreate the full anatomical shape for press-ceramic models, create temporary crowns, sprig teeth, inlays and veneers. The material can be zirconium dioxide, titanium, ceramics, cobalt-chromium alloy, plastic, wax.

Innovative digital technologies for ophthalmic screening and monitoring of premature infants

Pathology of the vision organ in premature infants (PI) is one of the leading problems in pediatric ophthalmology. The most severe diseases are retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), partial atrophy of the optic nerve, glaucoma, congenital myopia, developmental anomalies leading to blindness [1, 2]. For newborns weighing less than 2500 g, the introduction of a systematic approach to early detection of retinal pathology, conducting methods of careful ophthalmological monitoring to prevent irreversible changes are of medical and social importance [3]. This is due to the specificity of its clinical manifestations, early onset (the first weeks of a premature baby's life) and rapid course [7].

Effectiveness of complex anti-inflammatory treatment with the application of Mollagara mud for tuboperitoneal infertility

Tuboperitoneal infertility occurs in 20-30% of cases of female infertility and often occurs in chronic inflammatory processes of the genitals [6, 7]. In addition, the reasons may be surgical interventions which were performed on the pelvic organs, uterine cavity, as well as adhesions of the pelvic organs [8]. Because of several reasons, some patients need to use only conservative methods of treatment, which in turn require to be improved.

Peculiarities of myocardial revascularization in patients with myocardial ischemia in combination with arterial hypertension

Arterial hypertension (AH) is the main cause of risk associated with atherosclerosis. On the one hand, AH promotes the growth of atherosclerotic lesions of the coronary vessels, on the other hand, as a result of an increase in blood pressure (BP), functional and structural disorders of coronary blood supply and vascular remodeling of heart increase [3-5].

Methodological aspects of organization of Health schools

Human health is 50% determined by the way of life, that is, by his behavior and attitude to his own health and the health of others; one of the priority areas of activity in health protection is the formation of healthy lifestyle skills in people, and an increase in the level of sanitary and hygienic culture. Well-planned and organized activities to promote a healthy lifestyle among the population in health schools contribute to a decrease in morbidity and mortality, since chronic non-communicable diseases have common risk factors of a behavioral nature, approaches to their prevention are not resource-intensive, but can give a tangible socio-economic effect.

Modern diagnostics and treatment of psoriatic arthritis

Psoriatic arthritis (PA) is a chronic disease characterized by damage to the skin and joints [4, 13, 26]. PA belongs to the group of seronegative spondyloarthritis. PA develops in about 10-30% of people, more often at the age of 30-50 years [6, 18]. The cause of PA is not fully understood. Along with the immune system, genetic factors play a certain role in the development of the disease [7, 14].

Closed chest injury complicated by traumatic asphyxia

Diagnostics and treatment of closed chest injuries are the urgent problems of thoracic surgery and traumatology [1, 3-5]. Traumatic asphyxia is a complication that occurs with strong and short-term compression of a chest or an abdomen. A diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia is established on the basis of complaints, anamnesis, the mechanism of a trauma, clinical picture and instrumental studies [2, 5, 7, 8]. We present a rare occurence of traumatic asphyxia as a result of closed chest injury with compression.

Local Climate There is an Ally of Your Health

The Bayramali sanatorium, the oldest one in Turkmenistan, is a health resort gem of the country. It will be 90 years in two years. The main type of therapy used at the Bayramali resort is climatotherapy. Many scientists have been studying the beneficial effects of the local climate on patients with nephritis, methods of treatment, indications and contraindications. The unique properties of the climate zone where the resort is located have been known since the beginning of the last century – the local dry air proved to be curative for patients diagnosed with kidney diseases. As a climatic resort, the sanatorium, designed for 25 patients diagnosed with nephritis, officially began to work in 1933, and its development was gaining momentum. The 1941–1945 war made adjustments to the fate of the health resort. The sanatorium accommodated an evacuation hospital during the first months of the war, and the Research Institute of Climatology and Balneology, evacuated from Sochi, worked there later. During the war, the health resort helped thousands of defenders of the Motherland restore their health. After the war, patients with kidney diseases continued to receive treatment at the sanatorium. From November to March, the sanatorium accepted patients with cardiovascular diseases. The experience of treating these disorders has proved to be highly effective over many decades, and the Bayr

How to Behave in Hot Weather?

In the last few days, the air temperature has been rising sharply and hot weather is expected in the coming days. But what can hot days bring? How to behave during this period? Based on the recommendations of medical professionals, we have prepared tips that are very simple and easy to implement. First of all, on hot days, it is necessary to wear light and loose clothes made of natural fabrics and it is also necessary to put on light headwear and to take a bottle of water. By the way, clothes do not completely protect the skin from the sun: cotton lets through 6 per cent of sunrays and in the wet form up to 20 per cent.
