Summary:

Objective: to analyze the prevalence of epilepsy among adult population and the use of antiepileptic drugs (AED) in the Republic of Bashkortostan (RB) in 2013-2017. Material and Methods. Analysis of prevalence of etiological forms of epilepsy and used AEDs was carried out by analyzing data from annual reports of the neurological service of outpatient and inpatient medical institutions in cities and regions of the Republic of Bashkortostan, data of clinical examination of patients with a reliable diagnosis of epilepsy, as well as data from the Medical Information and Analytical Center (MIAC). Results. The prevalence of epilepsy in the Republic of Bashkortostan for the study period was 291.7- 325.8 case per 100 thousand population, which were most often recorded in central and eastern regions of the republic. The average age of patients ranged from 30.5±1.3to 41.8±0.2year. The ratio of men to women was approximately similar: 1.1:1.0. Cases of symptomatic epilepsy ranged from 82.6 to 46.5%. Among AEDs, carbamazepine was mainly used with a frequency of up to 47.4% and valproic acid with a frequency up to 32.9%. New generation drugs (parampanel) were rarely used (2.4%). Conclusion. The study of clinical and epidemiological characteristics of epilepsy is important for systemic organization of specific therapeutic and diagnostic measures and the creation of a specialized service to improve the quality of life of patients with epilepsy.

Clinical significance of hyperglycemia in acute ischemic stroke

Year: 2018, volume 14 Issue: №2 Pages: 220-225
Heading: Neurology Article type: Original article
Authors: Izhbuldina G.l., Novikova L.B.
Organization: Bashkir State Medical University of the Russian Health Care, Ufa Clinical Hospital №18
Summary:

Aim: to study the effect of hyperglycemia on the course and clinical outcome of ischemic stroke (IS) in the acute period. Material and Methods. A total of 862 patients with IS (370 men, 492 women), mean age was 66.1±10.8 years. The degree of neurological deficit (NIHSS scale) and functional disorders (Rankin scale), clinical outcome were assessed. When admitted to hospital, a study of the level of glycemia on an empty stomach was conducted. Results. In 186 (21.6%) patients type 2 diabetes Mellitus (DM) was diagnosed. In 27.8% of patients without DM and 76.3% of patients with DM hyperglycemia was detected. In patients without DM with hyperglycemia, higher than in patients with normoglycemia, the representation of women (by 9.9%), cardioembolic stroke (by 10.5%), severe neurological deficit (by 14.7%), gross impairment of vital activity (by 14.0%), a decrease in the frequency of noticeable positive dynamics (by 14.8%), an increase in mortality (by 11.5%). In patients with DM, hyperglycemia was associated with a higher assessment rate on the Rankin scale of 4-5 points (by 25.6%) and a decrease in the incidence of noticeable positive dynamics (by 27.7%). Conclusion. Development of IS is characterized by high representation of disorders of carbohydrate metabolism (21,6%). The severity of glucose metabolism disorders is interrelated with the severity and clinical outcome of the disease.
