Authors: Yakovlev D.S., Kolokolov O.V., Makarov N.S., Lipatova Т.Е., Loiko V.S., Kolokolova A.M., Lukina E.V., Sitkali I.V., Tolstykh А.О., Yudina V.V.
Organization: Saratov State Medical University
Summary:

Objective: to analyze awareness level among Saratov's population about stroke, and to identify regional characteristics of risk factors for the development of acute cerebrovascular accident (ACVA) based on the results of a survey. Material and Methods. A personal questionnaire was conducted through a personal conversation with the residents of Saratov who applied for medical care in polyclinics as part of the campaign "World Day Against Stroke" October 29, 2019. Results. The survey involved 123 people. Most respondents showed a high level of awareness of such risk factors for ACVA as arterial hypertension, obesity, high blood cholesterol, alcohol abuse, and smoking. The significance of cardiac arrhythmias, a history of transient ischemic attacks, and a hereditary predisposition to the development of stroke were underestimated by the participants of the action. The level of knowledge of the population about thrombolytic therapy and surgical intervention on the vessels of the neck and brain as the leading methods of treating stroke is insufficient. Conclusion. Public informing is necessary to increase the level of awareness about stroke, which allows motivating citizens to remain committed to a healthy lifestyle and eliminate risk factors for developing ACVA.

Heading: Urology Article type: Original article
Authors: Popkov V.M., Loyko V.S., Mikhaylov I.V.
Organization: Kuban State Medical University, Saratov State Medical University
Summary:

Objective: to study the terms and clinical features of chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) development using UPOINT classification in men from 32 to 60 age depending on body weight. Material and Methods. A total of 121 men with CP/CPPS with various body weight aged by 32-60 years were observed. Body Mass Index (BMI) was used to prove absence or presence of overweight and obesity. The diagnosis of CP/CPPS in patients was based on the information of anamnesis, analysis of health cards and case histories. Differential diagnosis of CP/CPPS forms was organized by the cytological and bacteriological studies of prostatic secretion. Results. Only 26.4% of patients with CP/CPPS showed normal body weight. It was observed that in men with excess body weight and obesity the CP/CPPS developed at more earlier periods of their life. The differences of phenotype and clinical manifestations in patients with obesity and normal body index were determined according to the UPOINT classification. Conclusion. The risk of chronic pelvic pain syndrome development in men with obesity (BMI>30) under the 45 years increases in 2.3 times compared to men with normal body weight. The results of men phenotyping with chronic pelvic pain syndrome and obesity snowed the prevalence for P, О and N domains from UPOINT classification thus represent the predominance of disuric symptoms with expressed psychogenic features on the background of pain feelings outside the pelvis.

Overall, most of respondents could list 2 or more risk factors, but only 50% in 2014 could list 3 warning signs. More than 80% would call emergency number in response to stroke, but only 25% had heard of thrombolytic therapy. Overall stroke knowledge scores decreased in 2017 despite the public awareness in the media. Conclusion. Currently the knowledge of stroke risk factors, warning signs, and treatment is poor in Saratov.

Heading: Urology Article type: Original article
Authors: Popkov V.M., Kirichuk V.F., Loyko V.S., Maslyakova G.N., Blyumberg B.l.
Organization: Saratov State Medical University
Summary:

Objective: to improve the treatment results of patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (stage l-ll) accompanied with chronic abacterial prostatitis (category III A) by the use of terahertz therapy at frequencies of molecular spectrum of emission and absorption of nitric oxide 150,176-150,664 GHz. Material and methods. Atotal number of 75 patients met the inclusion criteria and were available for analysis. They were divided into three groups: 1st core group — 25 patients with BPH (stage l-ll) accompanied with chronic abacterial prostatitis (category III), which received standard medical therapy in combination with THZ-therapy; second group — 25 patients with BPH (stage l-ll) accompanied with CAP, which received standard medical therapy; third control group — 25 healthy men. Results. The combination of THZ — therapy with standard medical treatment allowed us to achieve marked improvements in the IPSS and QoL system, rapid anesthetic effect, more significant volume reduction of the prostate tissue in the 1st core group. Also THZ-therapy in 1st core group revealed a statistically significant increase of the maximum speed of blood vessels in the prostate tissue, improved a prostate secretion and rheological properties of blood. Conclusion. THZ-therapy as a complementary treatment has a beneficial effect on the clinical course of BPH (stage l-ll) accompanied with CAP (category III).
