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.

Organization: Saratov State Medical University n.a. V.I. Razumovsky Research Institute of Cardiology
Summary:

Objective: to analyze the prevalence of digestive diseases during social stress among the population of different age groups (young, mature, elderly / old). Material and Methods. We studied data from the official statistical reports of the health Committee of the city of Saratov and the logs of incoming and departures / deaths of patients in the surgical and gastroenterology clinics of the city for 1990-2006. Social stress was considered as a factor in the breeding population system from the equilibrium state. Linear regression analysis, odds ratio, and analysis of the speed characteristics of the dynamics of the studied parameters in time were applied. The number of time moments when the sign of the rate of change in the prevalence of the studied parameters changed to the opposite was estimated. Results. The change in the sign of the rate of prevalence of acute pathology of the digestive system was most often observed during the period of maximum severity of social stress, which emphasizes the importance of the social component in the emergence and development of digestive pathology. The increase in the prevalence of diseases of the digestive system in all age groups was revealed. The increase in the prevalence of individual nosological forms, as well as the greatest number of times when the sign of the rate of prevalence of the pathology changed to the opposite, were most often registered among the population of young and elderly / senile age. The population of the mature age was characterized by greater stability of the studied parameters, that is, higher resistance to social stress. Conclusion. The prevalence of diseases of the digestive system during the period of social stress varied among the population of different age groups asynchronously: the most significant changes in the studied parameters were observed among the population of two extreme age groups: young and elderly / old people. These groups of people need closer attention of the doctor than patients of mature age, because they have a higher risk of developing diseases of the digestive system.

Organization: Saratov Regional Hospital for Veterans of Wars, Saratov State Medical University
Summary:

Purpose: to analyze the prevalence of acute abdominal pathology in the period of social stress. Material and Methods. The data of official statistical reports of the Saratov city health Committee and the logs of patients admitted and discharged / deceased in the surgical clinics of the city were studied. The prevalence of acute appendicitis, acute cholecystitis, acute pancreatitis, acute intestinal obstruction, gastrointestinal bleeding, perforation of ulcers during 1990-2006 among the population of different age groups (young, mature, elderly /old) was investigated. The significance of differences between the groups was assessed using white's T-test. Results. A decrease in the prevalence of acute appendicitis, an increase in the prevalence of acute pancreatitis and gastrointestinal bleeding. Differences in the prevalence of acute abdominal diseases in patients of different age groups were found: an increase in the prevalence of acute pancreatitis mainly in the young population. There is a tendency to gradual Erasure of sexual differences in acute cholecystitis and acute pancreatitis in this period. Conclusion. The analyzed time interval was characterized by changes in the structure of the "acute abdomen", which may be associated with social changes in society during this period.

Organization: Saratov Institute of Cardiology, Russia, Saratov State Medical University
Summary:

The aim of the study is to evaluate influence of estrogen deficiency on lipid profile in women of different age. Material and Methods. 189 women with normal body weight: 44 women with premature menopause (aged <40 years), 69 women with early menopause (aged 40-45 years), and 76 women with natural menopause (aged 46-55 years) have been studied. In all women identification of clinical status has been performed during clinical examination. Results. It is shown that increasing age associated with increasing total cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) (p<0.05). We have not observed a significant association between age and level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) (p=0.117). According with increased age, atherogenic index of plasma (AIP) increases from initial -0.17±0.09 (M±o) to 0.09±0.47 (p<0.05) in women with premature menopause, and to 0.14±0.21 (p<0.05) in other women. Final level of AIP was similar between women aged 40-45 years and women aged 46-55 years (p=0.084). Conclusion. Lipid metabolism disorders were assessed in 73.5% of women with estrogen deficiency. According to the age factor the rate of women with normal lipid metabolism decreases (x2=10,165, p=0.026).

Organization: Saratov State Medical University
Summary:

The article is devoted to the study of systolic blood pressure features in the population of large industrial center. On the basis of measurement of blood pressure in adult population of three city regions there were revealed the following age-related changes in systolic blood pressure in men: three periods of rise and two periods of stabilization. The principal difference in women is the absence of the periods of rise and stabilization, lower level of blood pressure in young and middle aged people and authentically higher level of blood pressure - in elderly women. The increase of haemodynamical loading for one year of life in men of the middle (2 times) and elder ages (3 times) was revealed, that was not typical forwomen.
