Summary:

Aim. This study was conducted to establish levels of knowledge in the general population, and also to determine the impact of educational sessions on stroke knowledge. Material and Methods. Two groups (2014 and 2017 years) completed a stroke knowledge questionnaire (435 respondents). Results. 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. Our study demonstrates that more educational campaigns should be conducted for improve knowledge of stroke symptoms, and therapy.

Parkinson's disease in Russia: prevalence and incidence

Year: 2016, volume 12 Issue: №3 Pages: 379-384
Heading: Neurology Article type: Review
Authors: Razdorskaya V.V., Voskresenskaya O.N., Yudina G.K.
Organization: First Moscow State Medical University n.a. I.M. Sechenov, Saratov State Medical University
Summary:

The results of the regional studies on the frequency of Parkinson's disease (PD) and the incidence of it in Russia have been generalized, the main factors that determine the quality of the estimates of this disease epidemiological indicators have been identifyd. The article summarizes data from 19 original studies on the epidemiology of parkinsonism and Parkinson's disease in Russia published between 2005-2015. Due to the statistical heterogeneity of the primary results computational analytics was not applied to the data; however, data consolidation allowed to perform a trend analysis of epidemiological indicators. The methodological basis of the majority of studies was medical aid appealabil-ity; two of the studies used door-to-door surveys. One of the studies returned questionably low epidemiological indicators obtained from the medical records, and the rest showed the standardized prevalence of 30.0-139.9/100,000 and incidence of 7.63-21.8/100,000 per year. Contribution of Parkinson's disease to the nosological structure of parkinsonism was >61.3%. Estimate of the number of patients with PD in Russia is approximately 210,000 people. Conclusions are made regarding the prevalence of PD in Russia according to the cross-cutting research on the level of indicators in the Western countries. The prevalence of PD by appealability is 2-3 times less than the prevalence in continuous research, both national and foreign. The incidence of PD, demonstrated in half of the studies, is stable from region to region and is comparable with the universally recognized values.

Brain MRI. Results. In parallel the patient had classical progressing clinic bilateral parkinsonism in combination with progressive cognitive decline. MRI research revealed the left frontal lobe tumor. Conclusions. Secondary parkinsonism as a result of intracerebral neoplasms are caused mostly by compression of basal ganglia or mesencephalon increasing tumors. Hemiparkinsonism in these cases usually precedes the other focal neurological symptoms.

Summary:

Goal: discussion of the revealing aspects of Parkinson’s disease (PD) by ambulatory neurologists. Techniques: a longitudinal epidemiological survey on applications to a specialized clinic. Results. 603 patients with Parkinsonism suspicions were examined for a four-year period. The syndromal diagnosis of Parkinsonism/extra pyramidal syndrome was correctly recognized by ambulatory neurologists in ca. ¾ of the whole contingent of patients. Hypodiagnostics of PD was the most frequent mistake (71 of 146 corrected diagnoses). Hyperdiagnostics of PD followed by frequency (57 of 146 corrected diagnoses). Every ffth patient applied for consultation caused diffculties in the ambulatory chain. Conclusion. The diagnostic mistakes, no provisional diagnosis for every tenth PD patient cause justifed anxiety in the patients regarding the quality of guaranteed medical aid and force them to apply for specialized consulting reception individually.
