FAST-TRACK ANESTHESIA DURING ABDOMINAL CAVITY SURGERY IN PATIENTS WITH OBESITY

Implementation of the Fast-track anesthesia is interesting for the Fast-track surgery concept realization in obese patients. We evaluated the influence of combined inhalation-epidural anesthesia (CIEA) and total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) on the recovery of 56 patients with BMI 37 ± 6 kg/m2 after laparotomy. CIEA-group patients (n = 28) in comparison with TIVA-group pa- tients (n = 28) were extubated earlier […]

INFLAMMATORY AND ENDOTHELIAL FACTORS IN PROGRESSION OF TARGET-ORGAN DAMAGE IN PATIENTS WITH ARTERIAL HYPERTENSION WITH COMORBID PATHOLOGY

The study analyzed the role of inflammation and endothelial function in the progression of target organs damage in arterial hypertension with diabetes mellitus 2 type and obesity. The levels of serum concentrations of cytokines, CRP, chemerin, and ICAM-1 were studied using ELISA. As a result, it was established statistically significant contribution of these markers as […]

Functional state of gepatobiliary system of children with obesity

Health professionals have long known that being overweight carries many serious health risks for adults. Medical researchers have also investigated how obesity affects the health, such as gastrointestinal system, of children and adolescents, but work in this area has advanced more slowly. The basic role in development of metabolic disorders with insulin resistance syndrome is […]

IMPACT OF OBESITY ON LEFT VENTRICULAR GEOMETRY IN PATIENTS WITH HYPERTENSION

Anthropometrical measurements were performed in 119 hypertensive patients, including 91 patients with obesity, 81 of them underwent echocardiogra­phical study. The lowest level of systolic, diastolic BP, and heart rate were observed in hypertensive patients without obesity, increasing together with the BMI. The highest average values of the left ventricular mass, absolute and relative wall thickness […]

Role of the ultrasonic methods in diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease with concomitant obesity in young people

In recent years, there is a tendency to increasing of gas­troesophageal reflux disease with concomitant pathology, including obesity. Obesity can provide the motor-evacuation disorders and can provoke the increasing of the violations in the esophagus mucosa. The question of the development of new methods of diagnosis this disease is extremely impor­tant. Ultrasound methods reveal new […]
