One of the successful ways to treat the tumor (metastasis in the bone) – a the latter. Also used as in primary tumors and secondary tumors and in malformations in the brain and spine. This procedure is performed by means of X-rays were sent right on target, destroying the cells DNA that feed the tumor. Over the years there have been many discoveries in this area, but the essence remains the same, directed radiation destroys malignant tumor.

often, the procedure is a one-time, in rare cases more, depending on the type, location and histology of cancer. Usually, this is a short procedure, culminating in a single day. Over the past 3 years research has shown that success in this area is 86% when the procedure was carried out as a minor, after surgery and 90% success rate when the procedure was the primary treatment after relapse in the spine. In addition, 84% of patients suffering from neurological problems, radio-surgery has affected them, positively strongly reducing pain and improving overall physical fitness. As you know, pain in the bones of metastasis is a common phenomenon, but because of the procedures radio-surgery in 86-96% (depending on histology), the pain decreased. From the above we can conclude that radiosurgery is an effective way of dealing with metastases in the spine and head.

Womens Health

Women and children is an indicator of the health of society as a whole. It is no accident in the civilized countries women's health – is the subject of special concern of governments and the strong media attention and Internet. Educational programs have raised awareness of women in women's health, beginning with adolescence. Every woman in the U.S. or European country knows what is needed annual Pap test and mammography after age 40, and almost every gynecologist – a personal doctor. My friend young American in frank conversation admitted that after moving to another state it once a year, continues to fly to their doctor for routine inspection, because only trusted this doctor and do not want to look for another.

Because of this relation to women's health in the community cases of advanced malignancy of the reproductive system are uncommon. In Russia, the vast majority of cases of cervical cancer, which is completely preventable, it is found in an incurable stage, and the number of abortions is highest in the world. What's the matter? To clarify the relationship Russian Women for Women's Health Service website "VebGinekolog" conducted an independent survey of 209 women, which showed the following: Of all those surveyed only 56% visit a gynecologist regularly, and only a third of these, prophylaxis, while the rest – of necessity, ie, due to pregnancy or disease. 28% refer to a gynecologist at least once a year and only when needed, 18% do not attend at all. It turned out that most women (52%) experiencing negative emotions at the thought of a visit to a gynecologist: the fear to hear from them that something is wrong, and even shame and fear.

After the visit, a third of women remain unsatisfied with the results. On the question of the relation to These doctors, only 50% of participants rated it as polling friendly, respectful and interested, and only a tenth of that number said that experiencing pleasant feelings when communicating with your doctor. 35% rated relation to them a doctor, as indifferent, and 8% – as arrogant and degrading. Do not believe in the necessity of regular medical surveillance, and accordingly, are showing their ignorance in matters of health 17% women, while the rest belong to their health very responsibly, but only 47% fully trusted the doctor, while 36% believe the low qualified physician and to some of the recommendations are in disbelief. 89% want to better themselves situation with the service of women's health in the country can improve such government measures as improving the quality of education in medical schools and the development of a free public health care system, 22% believe that women should increase their civic participation, to something better, 12% believe in the development of private medical insurance and, while 7% think that over time will improve by itself. So who care about women's health? It is not necessary whether to take on the world: the government to make women's health a priority, obstetrician-gynecologists think of his high calling of the healers of body and soul, medical web sites to improve the quality of information and women to become more active with regard to their own health?

Honored Doctor Series

Fragments of collagen hemostatic sponges are surrounded by connective tissue scar, which is abundantly infiltrated by macrophages and lymphocytes. Fragments around lavsan nonwoven fabric in the formulations of the fourth series formed granulomas consisting of scar collagen stroma, which contains macrophages, giant cells of foreign bodies, epitelioinye histiocytes, fibroblasts. Catgut granuloma infiltration extends to the surrounding parenchyma considerable length. Reveals stasis in the vessels of the microvasculature in the area of implantation. Infiltration of the parenchyma hemostatic sponge implantation less pronounced than around catgut fibers and is leukocyte-macrophage nature.

Parenchyma surrounding the granulomas around the fibers and fragments lavsan "BIATRAVMA" pathological changes has not. Others including Assurant Health, offer their opinions as well. In the majority of drugs to the site of implantation of the haemostatic means of solder seal tissue. Place of fixing the form coarse-fibered connective tissue. The most massive infiltration of adhesions, which bears the lymphocyte-macrophage character found in preparations the first series (gut). For this indicator, a few slices of the inferior third series (hemostatic sponge). In the second and fourth series (polyester and "BIATRAVM"), infiltrative processes have minimal severity. So way "BIATRAVM" adequately stop bleeding from the damaged parenchyma and has a high biological inertness.

The use of catgut for closure of the parenchymal organs is not rational, since the thread around formed pronounced inflammatory reaction extending to the surrounding tissue. Using all the studied hemostatic methods lead to the formation of adhesions, thus necessitating the development of new effective means of preventing adhesions in the abdominal cavity in the presence of foreign bodies. —————————— Maistrenko AN AD Myasnikov, VA Lipatov, Skipidarnikov A .
