  • Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis in Adults: Long-Term Observation of
           Ukrainian Patients

    • Authors: Marta Dzhus
      Abstract: The assessment of long-term outcome of functional disability and disease activeness in adult patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis appears to be complicated due to the absence of a unified approach to the classification and estimation of disease activeness, as well as the loss of supervision over a patient because of remission or his/her transition from pediatric to adult rheumatic service. The objective of the research was to determine how adults with the history of juvenile idiopathic arthritis fulfill the classification criteria for adult rheumatic diseases, as well as to assess activeness of these diseases, the degree of functional disorders, and social activeness of patients in Ukraine. Materials and methods. Patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis older than 18 years and with more than 3 years of disease duration living in different parts of Ukraine were included into the study. Data regarding sociodemographic features, fulfillment of adult classification criteria, Health Assessment Questionnaire, articular and extra-articular Juvenile Arthritis Damage Index and disease activity were analyzed.Results. We observed 122 adult patients with the history of juvenile idiopathic arthritis irrespective of the presence of active inflammation at the moment of the examination. This group included patients from different regions of Ukraine diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis during 1984-2013. An adult rheumatologist examined all patients and the diagnosis was revised according to the adult classification of rheumatic diseases. Typical diagnostic criteria for rheumatoid arthritis were estimated in 32.8% of patients, ankylosing spondylitis – in 31.1% of patients, undifferentiated arthritis – in 13.9% of patients, Still’s disease – in 4.9% of patients, psoriatic arthritis – in 0.8% of patients, steady clinical laboratory remission – in 16.5% of patients. Most patients (81.8%) with rheumatoid factor positive polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis fell under rheumatoid arthritis criteria in adulthood, and in 85% of patients with enthesitis-related arthritis as well as 53.8% of patients with extended oligoarthritis ankylosing spondylitis developed in adulthood. 68.8% of patients with systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis, 68% of patients with rheumatoid factor negative polyarthritic subtype and 55% of patients with enthesitis-related arthritis had disability and incapacitation. Minimal disorders of the patients’ general condition according to the Health Assessment Questionnaire in adult age were found in most subtypes of juvenile idiopathic arthritis classified according to the International League of Associations for Rheumatology (extended and persistent oligoarthritis, rheumatoid factor positive polyarthritis, systemic subtype); moderate disorders of the general condition were found in enthesitis-related arthritis and rheumatoid factor negative polyarthritis. Side effects of juvenile idiopathic arthritis according to the articular Juvenile Arthritis Damage Index included severe articular damage being most frequently found in systemic and rheumatoid factor positive polyarthritis subtypes of juvenile idiopathic arthritis, while side effects of juvenile idiopathic arthritis according to the extra-articular Juvenile Arthritis Damage Index included extra-articular damage being found in systemic and rheumatoid factor negative polyarthritis subtypes of juvenile idiopathic arthritis, that was confirmed by the assessment of physical health according to the Short Form Health Survey-36, which was the worst in patients with systemic (40.3±12.6) and rheumatoid factor negative polyarthritis (38.9±9.4) subtypes of juvenile idiopathic arthritis.Conclusions. Further research of remote consequences of juvenile idiopathic arthritis in adult age and long-term observation of such patients require a detailed study to improve diagnostics and provide adequate treatment of rheumatic diseases with juvenile onset in adult age.

  • Epigenetic Regulation of Gene Activity in Epithelial Cells of Nasal Mucous
           Membrane in Patients with Polypous Rhinosinusitis

    • Authors: Ivanna Koshel
      Abstract: Nowadays, a wide clinico-laboratory polymorphism of “polypous rhinosinusitis” is observed. It suggests the potential role of heredity in the formation of the disease indicating the necessity of studying the role of genetic factor in the formation of various clinico-pathogenic variants of polyposis in detail.The objective of the research was to study the degree of functional abnormalities in the epithelial cell genome of the nasal mucous membrane in patients with polypous rhinosinusitis using the cytogenetic methods.Materials and methods.The article presents the results of cytogenetic study of 70 patients with various types of polypous rhinosinusitis (aspirin-intolerant and allergic). Hereditary predisposition to the disease was determined applying clinical and genealogical analysis.Results.Significant differences in the quantitative characteristics of the functional state of the nasal epithelial cell genome by the criterion of chromatization indices, the nucleolar index, the indices of the heteropyknotic X chromosome and pathologically altered nuclei were found in patients with aspirin-intolerant polypous rhinosinusitis as compared to those with allergic polypous rhinosinusitis as well as the control group.The identified changes serve as a criterion of the reduction in the activity of the transcriptional-translational processes in aspirin-intolerant polypous rhinosinusitis.Conclusions.The studied changes in the parameters of the functional state of the epithelial cell genome in the nasal mucous membrane provided an objective confirmation of hypothesis about epigenetic nature of pathology formation.

  • Treatment of Serous Otitis Media

    • Authors: D. T. Orishchak, N. V. Vasyliuk, O. R. Orishchak, H. V. Khrebtiuk, R. M. Fishchuk
      Abstract: Serous otitis media is a serosal inflammation of the mucous membrane of the auditory tube and the tympanic cavity which develops on the background of Eustachian tube dysfunction. It is characterized by the presence of seromucous exudate in the tympanic cavity. The disease occurs more often in children than adults.The objective of the research was to compare the effectiveness of different methods of treating serous otitis media.Materials and methods. The study included 46 patients with serous otitis media at the age of 22-55 years. There were 26 females and 20 males who were treated as inpatients and outpatients in the department of microsurgery of ENT-organs in Ivano-Frankivsk Central City Clinical Hospital during 2012-2016. Disease duration ranged from 10-15 days to 1 month. In all the patients, serous otitis media developed on the background of persistent allergic rhinitis. All the patients underwent comprehensive examination: their complaints as well as anamnestic data were analyzed, ENT examination including the endoscopic examination of the nasal cavity and the nasopharynx, otoscopy, audiometry, impedancemetry and laboratory investigations was performed. All patients were divided into 2 groups: Group I included 21 patients receiving conservative therapy for allergic rhinitis and serous otitis media; Group II comprised 25 patients receiving conservative therapy for allergic rhinitis and treatment of serous otitis media applying myringotomy and bypass surgery of the tympanic cavity.Results. The analysis of the study revealed that in 9 patients of Group I, an improvement in hearing occurred on the third-fourth days after treatment. In 12 patients, treatment was ineffective. 14 patients of Group II who underwent myringotomy with the evacuation of the fluid from the tympanic cavity and subsequent injection of glucocorticoids into the tympanic cavity noted an improvement in hearing immediately after the procedure or the day after. In 11 patients of Group II, a thick mucous exudate was obtained during myringotomy. These patients underwent bypass surgery. The shunt was removed after a thorough cleaning of the tympanic cavity as well as the restoration of the auditory tube function.Conclusions. Myringotomy is more effective and rational method of treating serous otitis media. Myringotomy with subsequent bypass surgery is recommended for patients with a thick mucous exudate in the tympanic cavity in order to prevent chronic adhesive otitis as well as to perform a complete sanation of the tympanic cavity and to restore the auditory tube function.

  • Plasma Level of High-Sensitive C-Reactive Protein in Patients with Acute
           Myocardial Infarction and Arterial Hypertension

    • Authors: Wael Rumaneh
      Abstract: Arterial hypertension is an independent predictor of acute myocardial infarction. Nowadays, plasma level of high-sensitive C-reactive protein is a marker of cardiovascular risk. The objective of the research was to evaluate plasma level of high-sensitive C-reactive protein in patients with acute myocardial infarction and arterial hypertension depending on myocardial remodeling type. Materials and methods. 130 patients with myocardial infarction (63 individuals with concomitant arterial hypertension and 67 individuals without it) were observed. Transthoracic echocardiogram was used. To evaluate plasma level of high-sensitive C-reactive protein the ELISA method was applied. Results. Plasma level of high-sensitive C-reactive protein in patients with acute myocardial infarction increased by 5.11 times compared to the control group: (10.67 [5.43; 12.89]) mg/l and (2.09 [1.40; 4.60]) mg/l, respectively (p<0.001). In myocardial infarction and arterial hypertension, this parameter increased by 6.57 times (to (13.73 [7.05; 15.17]) mg/l) (p<0.001), and by 1.27 times (p<0.05) as compared to patients without arterial hypertension. No differences in plasma level of high-sensitive C-reactive protein were detected in patients with different types of left ventricular remodeling.Conclusions. Acute myocardial infarction caused by high plasma level of high-sensitive C-reactive protein is severer in co-existent arterial hypertension. There are no differences in blood levels of high-sensitive C-reactive protein depending on the type of left ventricular remodeling.

  • Frequency and Spectrum of Chromosomal Aberrations, Acrocentric Chromosome
           Associations Among Long Livers with Arterial Hypertension and
           Osteoarthritis Residing in the Carpathian Region

    • Authors: U P Shalamay
      Abstract: To maintain thyroid homeostasis, a key role is played not only by the adequate provision of a body with iodine, but also with other essential micronutrients, iron in particular. Iron is involved in the conversion of the amino acid L-phenylalanine into L-tyrosine, which is the part of active center of thyroid peroxidase which catalyzes the reactions of oxidation and organification of iodine during the biosynthesis of thyroid hormones. At the same time, insufficient secretion of thyroid hormones leads to mucinous edema of the gastric mucosa and closure of its ductless glands and reduction in both gastric juice secretion and iron absorption. The objective of the research was to determine the influence of latent iron deficiency onto the thyroid status of schoolchildren. Materials and methods. The study involved 68 boys and 65 girls at the age 6-11 years (Group I) and 12-18 years (Group II). To assess iron metabolism, the levels of hemoglobin in capillary blood, serum iron and ferritin, serum iron binding capacity were determined. To clarify the thyroid status in blood serum samples, there were determined the content of free triiodothyronine and thyroxine, thyroid-stimulating hormone of adenohypophysis, urinary iodine concentration; the dimension of the thyroid gland was determined and evaluated considering gender as well as body surface area according to the standards of thyroid volume (97 percentile). Results. It was established that latent iron deficiency can cause thyroid homeostasis disorders, as indicated by the growth of TSH in blood serum of girls by 37.5% (p<0.01) as compared to the control data. The probability of the formation of thyroid dysfunction significantly increases in case of combined iodine and iron deficiency. The development of subclinical hypothyroidism was established in 90.0% of boys and 89.0% of girls at the age of 6-11 years and 100.0% of boys and 75.0% of girls at the age of 12-18 years with mild iodine deficiency and latent iron deficiency. In schoolchildren with microelementosis, an increase in the thyroid gland was revealed in 66.6% of boys and 75.0% of girls of Group I and in half of boys and girls of Group II.Conclusions. Iron deficiency can cause changes in thyroid homeostasis even at the stage of preclinical disorders. Latent iron deficiency potentiates the development of subclinical hypothyroidism in case of mild iodine deficiency.

  • Dynamics of Heart Failure Markers in Patients after Past Myocardial
           Infarction with the Use of Potassium and Magnesium Salts of Gluconic Acid,
           Eplerenone and Rivaroxaban

    • Authors: N. V. Savchuk, I. P. Vakaliuk
      Abstract: The objective of the research was to increase the efficiency of treatment of patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) and post-infarction cardiosclerosis by adding potassium and magnesium salts of gluconic acid, eplerenone and rivaroxaban to the background therapy taking into account the indices of growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF-15), aldosterone and galectin-3. Materials and methods of the research. Emmunoenzymometric determination of the galectin-3, GDF-15 and aldosterone levels concentration in blood serum was conducted to achieve the stated objective. 42 patients with CHF and post-infarction cardiosclerosis after coronary artery stenting in the acute period of myocardial infarction (MI) were examined. The patients were randomized into four groups according to the peculiarities of treatment. Group I included patients with CHF and post-infarction cardiosclerosis treated with the background therapy (BT). Group II consisted of patients with CHF who were treated with BT and addition of potassium and magnesium salts of gluconic acid. Group III included patients with CHF who were prescribed eplerenone secondary to BT. Group IV consisted of patients who were treated with BT and rivaroxaban. Results. The proposed treatment regimens were proved to be effective in reduction of GDF-15, aldosterone and galectin-3 indices in 12 months of treatment. Conducted therapy with the use of rivaroxaban secondary to BT led to more intensive decrease in GDF-15 concentration in comparison with the use of potassium and magnesium salts of gluconic acid or eplerenone on the background of BT. This index constituted (2110.21±107.4) pg/ml before the treatment in these patients and significantly decreased to (1286.75±109.6) pg/ml being significantly before the therapy. The performed treatment with the use of eplerenone secondary to BT was proved to be more effective for normalization of aldosterone and galectin-3 levels in blood serum compared to other studied treatment regimens. The average value of aldosterone changed in the treatment process by 67.24%. Thus, the average level of this index constituted (139.8±7.63) pg/ml before the treatment and was equal to (45.8±5.52) pg/ml at the end of the treatment course. The average value of galectin-3 in patients with CHF and post-infarction cardiosclerosis was noted to be (34.69±1.67) ng/ml before the treatment. It constituted (22.53±0.98) ng/ml after the end of treatment being significantly lower compared to the value before the treatment. The average value of this index changed in the course of twelve-month treatment by 35.05%. Lower risk of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and stroke was observed in the patients with CHF and post-infarction cardiosclerosis with the use of rivaroxaban secondary to BT.Conclusions. Thus, the use of rivaroxaban combination therapy secondary to BT led to more intensive decrease in GDF-15 concentration in comparison with the use of potassium and magnesium salts of gluconic acid or eplerenone.

  • The Modern Aspects of Acute Heart Failure Management

    • Authors: Sergiy Fedorov, Nataliya Izhytska, Tomasz Kulpok-Baginski, Klaudiusz Nadolny
      Abstract: Acute heart failure (AHF) is one the most common causes of morbidity and mortality. The prognosis of patients admitted with AHF remains dismal, with over 20% experiencing recurrent HF admission and over 20% dying during the first year after initial admission.The purpose of this study was to provide contemporary perspective for hospital management of AHF within the context of the most recent data and to provide guidance, based on expert opinions, to practicing physicians and other healthcare professionals. Material and methods: In this paper we reviewed of current updated European Cardiology Society (ESC) HF guideline (2016) and modern trials for AHF from Medscape database. Results: Diuretics are the main medications in the treatment of patients with AHF and signs of fluid overload and congestion. Intravenous vasodilators are the second most used agent in AHF. Their use was shown to be associated with lower mortality, and a delay in administration was associated with a higher mortality.Use of an inotropic medications (such as dopamine, dobutamine, milrinone, levosimendan, epinephrine, norepenephrine) should be reserved for patients with a severe reduction in cardiac output resulting in compromised vital organ perfusion, which occurs most often in hypotensive AHF. Conclusion: Acute heart failure is a life-threatening medical condition, which needs emergency management for death prevention.
