[Infrared laser puncture and manual therapy in the treatment of cervical and thoracic osteochondrosis and neurological manifestations of this disease]

[Article in Ukrainian]

Koval’chuk VV, Sereda VH.

Abstract

The effect of two methods of the treatment (traditional and in combination with lascropuncture infrared radiation and manual therapy) on clinical symptoms of vertebral refractory pain syndroms was studied in 120 patients with neck-pectoral osteochondrosis. The empirical knowledge confirmed the necessity of expediency of these methods in the treatment of this pathology.

[Use of a diode laser in surgery of intervertebral disks in osteochondrosis of the vertebral column]

[Article in Russian]

Shchedrenok VV, Ivanenko AV, Sebelev KI, Moguchaia OV, Zevakhin SV.

Abstract

The results of surgical treatment of 185 patients with osteochondrosis of the vertebral column were studied during 12 months who, after complex clinico-radial examination, were treated by puncture laser nucleoplasty of intervertebral disks using a diode laser. Stable positive effect was obtained in 84.3% of cases using minimally invasive manipulations.

[Complex treatment of elderly patients with pain reflectory manifestations of lumbosacral osteochondrosis and peripheral circulation disorder]

[Article in Ukrainian]

Macheret IeL, Dzhuzha TV.

Abstract

Involutional age makes difficult the treatment of pain syndromes of vertebra origin. Concomitant diseases, age stress syndrome, hormone disbalance constrain the management of the disease. Combination of laser stimulation, reflexotherapy, psychodiagnostics and psychocorrection enhances the efficiency of the treatment of pain syndromes in patients with lumbo-sacral radiculitis and peripheral circulation disorder.

[Laser puncture in the treatment of reflectory manifestations of lumbosacral osteochondrosis in elderly patients in geriatric hospital]

[Article in Ukrainian]

Dzhuzha TV.

Abstract

Peculiarities of involution age are of great importance choosing treatment methods. Laser puncture was shown to be an effective method in treatment of pain syndromes in elder patients with lumbosackul radiculitis. Combination of pharmacotherapy, laser stimulation, acupuncture, vaccum massage, bishophit use enhances considerably efficiency of the treatment.

[Changes in various neurophysiological indices in treatment of lumbosacral osteochondrosis by combined osteoperiostal electroacupuncture and laser puncture]

[Article in Russian]

Ahmed YM, Korkushko AO.

Abstract

The conducted dynamic rheovasographic investigations in 67 patients with neurological manifestations of lumbosacral osteochondrosis as well as determination of skin temperature in 162 patients, and employment of stimulation electromyography in 40 patients showed the presence of definite positive shifts (P < 0.001) both in patients with lumboischialgia and in those with the radicular pain syndrome, which fact was evidenced by the clinical data suggesting to us the feasibility of use of osteoperiostal electropuncture combined with laseropuncture with infrared radiation.

[The treatment results in a persistent pain syndrome in the neurological manifestation of lumbosacral osteochondrosis using osteoperiosteal electro- and laser puncture]

[Article in Russian]

Macheret EL, Makhmud AI, Chuprina GN.

Abstract

The use of osteoperiosteal electropuncture and laser puncture combined in a complex treatment of 162 patients with lumbosacral osteochondrosis resulted in dissipation or apparent decrement in clinical manifestations of the trouble. In patients with lumboischialgia, there was an improvement in the pain syndrome as evidenced by scores on global painfulness (2.3 +/- 0.45 versus 30.2 +/- 0.62 before the treatment) in patients with degree IV pain. Less intensive pain (degree II-III as to I. P. Antonov) has gone away completely. In radicular pain syndrome, results on pain relief were much lower (P < 0.05), those on total vertebral and extravertebral painfulness much better (2.4 +/- 0.2 versus 17.3 +/- 0.7 and 1.2 +/- 0.6 versus 30.4 +/- 1.82 respectively). The secured results of treatment remained stable during two years.
