Summary:

The aim: to analyze the clinical effect of MBST-exposure monotherapy, a magnetic resonance method, on the pain syndrome caused by degenerative dystrophic changes of vertebral column structures. Material and Methods. 132 patients both male and female with cervical and lumbar dorsopathy were enrolled into the study. Treatment course included 9 sessions of 60 min. daily. MRI-results of corresponding spine regions and visual analogue pain intensity scale were used as assessment tools for treatment efficiency before, immediately after, 3, 6 and 12 months after MBST-treatment. Results. The objective results of structural transformation of pathological formations in vertebral motional segments correlated with significant decrease of pain syndrome at all stages of control tests. Conclusion. MBST-exposure is an effective method of non-invasive, notouch monotherapy for patients with chronic dorsalgia caused by degenerative dorsopathy.

Summary:

The aim: to conduct comparative retro- and prospective study of treatment outcomes in patients with cervical spine and SC injuries on the basis of assessment scale analysis. Material and Methods. 217 patients with closed cervical spine and SC injuries commeasurable by age, degree of neurological deficit, acute physiological and chronic state disorders were enrolled into the study. 177 patients comprised the main group (prospective study) and 40 — comparison group (retrospective study). To compare treatment outcomes we used Karnofsky score (Karnofsky, 1949), a quantitative assessment score for general patient status scales, APACHE II, Acute Physiology and Chronic State Evaluations (Knaus — Draper, 1985) and SCIM II, Spinal Cord Independence Measure Scale. Results. Comparative analysis based on the quantitative values of assessment scales, indicates an improvement of short-term treatment outcomes in patients with SC and cervical spine injuries in the main group. Conclusion. Complex approach to differentiated surgical treatment management and unique neuroprotection methods significantly improves short-term treatment outcomes having positive effect on general patient status, severity of acute physiological and chronic state disorders and patients' independence in the post-surgical period.
