Perceptive deafness extension among able-bodied population, high risk of becoming disabled provided that receiving continuous care require new methods of therapy search, that is rather urgent and important medical and social goal. Comparison of dynamic of clinical manifestations in patients with chronic perceptive deafness during traditional drug therapy as well as dynamic electro stimulation (DENAS) was a purpose of the present research.

Two representative groups of patients were formed for that purpose: basic group consisted out of 32 patients with bilateral chronic perceptive deafness in the age range from 42 to 61 years old, and control group included 26 patients with chronic perceptive deafness of similar age and sex. All the patients underwent pure threshold and superthreshold tone audiometry as well as subjective tinnitus estimation (ST) by means of standard audiologic methods besides the general examination and auditory analyzer examination.

DENAS therapy was performed with the help of portable device which has transcutaneous, low-frequency, short-impulse, high-amplitude, noninvasive effect on biologically active zones and acupuncture points. By indications patients of the main group underwent DENAS course in a constant mode and at a comfortable energy level depending on ST intensity and subject to corresponding diseases along with traditional drug therapy. An application was performed in the zone of frontal complaint projection (ear and parotid zones), central back line and paravertebral lines, in the zone of “cervical annulus” and cervical-collar zone. Average session length was 30 minutes, course therapy duration was 8 to 12 days. Patients of the control group received only traditional drug therapy.

Analysing the results of the therapy that was performed it is possible to assume that 11 (42.2%) patients of the control group with chronic perceptive deafness demonstrated hearing improvement on 10 dB in average in 250-8000 Hz frequency range; 8 (31%) patients demonstrated abatement of ST or its disappearance. At the same time, positive effect was registered approximately in half of the patients (50.3%) of the basic group with chronic perceptive deafness after the DENAS course accomplishing combined with drug therapy. For them hearing improvement made up approximately 15-20 dB in the researched frequency range; 19 (59.6%) patients demonstrated abatement of ST or its disappearance.

Thus, combination of DENAS with drug therapy for patients with perceptive deafnesssignificantly improves results of complex impact on a patient.

Application of multifunctional devices DiaDens is not a very widespread method of therapy in orthopaedic and trauma hospitals. Method of dynamic electro stimulation (DENAS) promotes improvement of the adaptation reaction and develops self-regulating body capabilities.

Purpose of the research: to study possibilities of DENAS application in complex conservativetherapy of osteoporosis.

Research materials and methods.

65 women in the age from 35 to 49 working in difficult industrial environments were under examination. Average age of patients was 44.3±2.5 years. All patients were divided into 3 groups: 1st group consisting of 20 women had a traditional osteotrophic therapy (Vitrum calcium D3, calcitonin, artron-complex); 2nd group consisting of 35 women had a complex therapy including DENS; 3rd control group consisted of 10 women with normal indexes of mineral density of the bone tissue. All groups correlated by age and clinicoroentgenological picture of disease activity. The examined patients did not take preparations influencing metabolism of the bone tissue before. They did not have diseases of the thyroid gland, kidneys, pancreatic diabetes. The patients had main complaints about pains in the back and large joints, weakness and so on.

Clinical and functional manifestation of osteopenia and osteoporosis were assessed before the therapy course and after 6 and 12 months. Mineral density of the bone tissue (MDBT) was analysed by the method of ultrasonic densitometry with help of the densitometer Achilles-express (Lunar, USA).

DiaDens device was applied for procedures of dynamic electro stimulation. For electrodes disposition we followed the general layouts proposed by J.S. MaiLnheimer (1978). adjusting them to certain clinical manifestations of the disease.

Results of researches. Improvement of the state of health was noted by all patients of the 1st and 2nd group by the end of the first month of therapy. The pains and general weakness were reduced which contributed to expansion of the motor activities, sleep normalization and improvement of the mood. In the 1 st group after 6 months, pains were reduced in 5 patients, 14 women noted periodical pains in the back and large joints. After 6 months, stiffness index increased by 2 % (p>0.5), after 12 months – by 3.5 % (p<0.05). In the 2nd group after 6 months, general weakness and effects of asthenoneurotic syndrome were reduced. Acute pains were absent. After 6 months, stiffness index increased by 4.5 % (pO.OS), after 12 months – by 6 % (p<0.05). In the 3rd group after 6 months, stiffness index decreased by 1.5 % (p>0.5), and after 12 months – by 2 % (p>0.5).

Improvement of women’s state of health and positive dynamics in increasing of the mineral density of the bone tissue registered in the 2nd group are the evidence of a positive result of complex therapy, improvement of the bone “quality”. Patients of the 1st group had a positive dynamics of therapy, but no significant changes in the quality of life were registered. In the 3rd group, reduction of bone tissue “quality” and patients’ state of health was registered as affected by exogenous and endogenous factors. Biochemical indexes of bone metabolism correlated with indexes of mineral density of the bone tissue.

Conclusions

Thus, dynamic electro stimulation enables to increase efficiency of complex therapy of osteoporosis, has a pronounced analgesic effect, and almost has no contraindications and is worthwhile for application at orthopaedic and traumatology institutions.

Osteoarthrosis

Denas device in complex therapy of osteoarthrosis
 

Ozhighanov V.F.

City hospital no. 7,

Polyclinics no.1 Kirov, Russia

Osteoarthrosis deformans  is a dystrophic disease of joints caused by affection of the articular cartilage. Disease occurrence gradually increases as the people grow older and reaches its maximum at 60-65 years of age. Usually primary (idiopathic) and pulmonaryosteoarthrosis are distinguished. Osteoarthrosis is called primary (idiopathic) when it was not possible to find out an immediate cause of its occurrence. Pulmonary osteoarthrosis is a consequence of different diseases, traumas and maldevelopment of the musculoskeletal system. At that, large joints of lower extremities (knee- and hip joints) are mainly affected as well as first metatarsophalangeal articulations. Several causes or risk factors of disease development can often be found in patients with osteoarthrosis. In addition, one patient can have a combination of both primary and pulmonary osteoarthrosis.

For  therapy of osteoarthrosis, complex therapy [5] is the most effective. Selection of therapy methods depends on the stage and period of the disease. During acute conditions of the disease a complex of measures is applied aimed at liquidation of the pain syndrome, improvement of the tissues trophism and blood circulation in the affected extremity, increase of the joint stability.

At early stages when the articular cartilage is not affected to a certain extent and with absence of contraindications, the so-called chondro-protective drug therapy is indicated. Therapeutic effect of these preparations in therapy of osteoarthrosis is associated with a favourable influence on the malfunctioning metabolism of the articular cartilage which slows the process progressing down. A clinically pronounced effect of these preparations is achieved only under conditions of their regular and long application [5, 6].

Non-efficiency or short-term effect of repeated course of conservative therapy under progressive disease is an indication for surgical therapy of osteoarthrosis. Basic criteria of the before-operational therapy to be considered inefficient are the following: continuous pains, increase of deformations and joint instability, restriction of joint movement. Modern methods of surgical therapy of osteoarthrosis are aimed at correction of existing biomechanical disorders. Under hip and knee joints osteoarthrosis a good clinical results with a positive roentgenological dynamics can be achieved with help of extraarticular correcting osteotomies. Their efficiency can be explained by influence on the basic links of the pathological process, improvement of centering of the mechanical axis of the extremity, joint congruence and stability, increase of the contact surface of the articulated joint surfaces, influence on active muscular components of joint stabilization, positive influence on the local microcirculation [2, 6].

Unfortunately, factors resulting in beginning and progressing of osteoarthrosis usually fail to be eliminated. Nevertheless, doctors should aim at their detection and correction. In addition, search for new economical and efficient methods of therapy and rehabilitation of patients is also of great importance. According to some sources [8, 9] a good clinical effect in patients with osteoarthrosis was achieved when applying dynamic electro stimulation (DENAS) in complex therapy. This method of therapy has some peculiarities, which enable to achieve a high efficiency and, at the same time, is very easy for application [I, 9]. During DENAS application, exposure is on biologically active zones and points with short current impulses of low frequency, which change their form in response to change of the skin electrical resistance in the subelectrode area.

During DENAS procedure, optimization of functioning of anti-nociceptive and trophic process in the pathologically changed tissues and organs is achieved due to local, segmental-reflex and general reactions. This provides for analgetic, anti-inflammatory, anti-edema and tropho-stimulating effects [1]. Thus, DENAS application for healing osteoarthrosis deformans is well-grounded theoretically.

Purpose of the present research was to assess DENAS efficiency and its influence on dynamics of clinical and laboratory indexes of patients with acute osteoarthrosis deformans of joints of extremities in the polyclinics conditions.

Materials and methods

31 patients with osteoarthrosis deformans of knee- and hip joints of I-II degree were examined. Patients were divided into groups by the method of random nonrepeated sampling. The patients were divided into two groups (main group – 19 people, and control group – 12 people). Average age of patients of the main group was 53.3 years (from 30 to 78 years), of the control group – 57.4 years (from 24 to 80 years). Average duration of the disease in the main group was 5.53±2.6 years, in the control group – 2.75±5.75 years (from one to 10 years). All patients passed an X-ray examination of joints. Before therapy patients of both groups had pain syndrome (100 %), edema of the affected joints (32.2 %), restriction of joints movement (100 %), reduction of the muscle strength (100 %). Dynamics of clinical symptomatology was assessed on the 5th and 15th days from the beginning of the therapy course. No significant differences by age. gender, degree of process activity and duration of the disease in the compared groups are present. Patients of the main and control groups had similar drug therapy; in addition, patients of the main group had dynamics electro stimulation (DENAS).

DENAS was applied in compliance with the recommended procedures [1]. Individual therapy recipe was selected for each patient at each therapy procedure. Zones were selected in accordance with the current clinical presentation. Skin surface over the affected joint was healed in the THERAPY mode at the maximum power level. Dynamics of the pain syndrome was the criteria of sufficiency of exposure on the said zone. therapy was finished when the pronounced analgetic effect was achieved (total relief or considerable reduction of pain). After that, the skin area symmetrical to the affected joint was healed in the TEST mode at the comfortable power level. The procedure was finished with therapy of universal zones; the trigger zones found, they were healed in the THERAPY mode at the comfortable power level (on average 3-5 minutes per each zone). Course apparatus therapy was finished after total regress of the pain syndrome.

Mathematical therapy of the research materials was carried out by methods of variation statistics [7] with application of the Microsoft Excel and Biostat software package. Significant differences were assessed by the Student’s criterion.

Results of the research and discussion

In the main and control groups, dynamics of the following marker indexes for control of therapy efficiency were assessed: disorder (restriction) of affected joints movements, change of the muscular tone, pain syndrome, clinical analyses. Before the therapy course, 4 (21 %) of 19 patients of the main group had complaints of painfulness in the affected joints under loads, the rest of the group had a continuous pain syndrome. 4 patients (33.3 %) in the control group had a pain syndrome under loads and 8 had a continuous pain syndrome. In the main group, a significant positive dynamics was observed starting from the 3rd-4th day of the therapy beginning. Total pain relief was observed in all patients who had DENAS by the 6th day from the therapy beginning (5.21±0.77). Similar results in patients of the control group were achieved only by the 25th day of the therapy course (19.25±6.92). Other clinical symptoms had similar regress.

Significant differences in patients of the main group were observed when assessing the muscle strength and mobility disorders in the joint on the 5th day. In the control group, significant differences showed up only on the 15th day from the therapy beginning (Table).

Conclusion

With application of dynamic electro stimulation (DENAS) for patients with osteoarthrosis a pronounced and fast analgetic effect was observed, regress of basic clinical symptoms was accelerated, therapy periods were reduced. Thus, we can make a conclusion that application of DENAS for patients with acute osteoarthrosis deformans of joints of the extremities is well grounded and advisable.

Taking into account chronic nature of the disease and relative simplicity of DENAS methods in combination with high efficiency of the therapy, further research should be aimed at development of optimal individual strategies of application of DENAS therapy at home depending on the stage of the disease.

Moscow, Russia

At present, search for efficient methods of healing diseases of the organ of vision resulting in irreversible changes of visual functions till its total loss is among most topical issues in ophthalmology. Diseases of the optic nerve occupy one of the highly important places in ophthalmology and are one of the main causes of blindness and impaired vision.

Purpose of the research: to examine therapeutic efficiency of the method of dynamic electro therapy (DENAS) in prevention and therapy of optic atrophy of different etiology. DENAS was applied based on exposure of reflexogenic zones and acupuncture points in the paraorbital region with short bipolar current impulses of different frequency, form of which changes depending on the values of electrical impedance of tissues in the subelectrode zone. The principle of “biological feedback” is used.

Dynamic electrotherapy of the paraorbital zone was carried out with the DENAS device with external paraorbital electrode “Dens-glasses“. Duration of therapy for each zone and the procedure as a whole was determined in compliance with indications for therapy. Duration of impulse series was from 0.3 to 5.5 seconds. Impulse frequency- 10 Hz. Duration of one stimulation procedure was 3-7 minutes. therapy course included 10 procedures of electrotherapy.

94 patients in the age from 15 to 87 years were examined. Of them, 80 patients had complex drug and DENAS therapy. 14 patients  were included into the control group, which had only pharmacotherapy. For assessment of therapy efficiency, functional and hypotensive results were taken into account.

After the therapy course, a positive effect was registered in all patients. Basic changes occurred in the peripheral visual field: it expanded in 73% of patients in total from 256±15.6 to 306±11.7 degrees (P<0.05). Reduction of the size of central and peripheric scotomas, which is the evidence of partial restoration of conductivity of optic nerve fibers and the retina, was registered. Central visual acuity after therapy increased in 38% of patients on average from 0.67±0.03 to 0.73±0.02 (P>0.05). Electro-oculogram (EOG) and electroretinogram (ERG) clearly showed the tendency toward improvement of metabolic processes. EOG displayed increased Arden coefficient to the normal values. EGR displayed increased “a”-wave amplitude from 35.5±2.30 to 59.2±3.96 mcV (P<0.05).

After comparative analysis of clinical and functional eye indexes, the most positive effect was registered in patients who had DENAS exposure in addition to traditional therapy in the complex therapy. The best results were registered in patients with vascular and inflammatorypathology of the optic nerve.

Myopia

Denas preventive therapy in patients of school age with risk of myopia development and progressing
 

Bakutkin V.V., Kirichuk V.F., Kuznetsova E.V.Medical University of Saratov,

Road Clinical Hospital of Privolghskaya Railway,

“Health Center”, Saratov, Russia

Concept of school myopia became wider in the last years. Myopia develops at the age of 5-6 years old due to earlier and more intense education, usage of computers during school process. More rapid than in previous years myopia aggravation was registered. Peaks of the disease progression fall on 7-9 and 12-14 years old periods. These age periods coincide with periods of hormonal changes in a body. In recent years an increase of nearsighted people a year makes about 5 %, in above mentioned periods and among students of gymnasiums and lyceums it could reach up to 7-10 %. Increase of nearsightedness prevalence in those children in double was caused by 6-yers old beginning of the study. Number of shortsighted schoolchildren between students of 11-th grade reaches 60 %.

Thus, there is obvious influence of excess visual load on spasm of accommodation appearance and myopia progression. At the same time, number of patients with high myopia degree does not increase significantly. Myopia of low and medium degree without serious changes in a retina could be found more frequently. This fact is an evidence of an acquired character of myopia.

Several factors could explain mechanism of such myopia development:

continuous overexertion of ciliary muscle, its spasm;

sclera weakness, which favours an accommodation cramp transition to axial myopia;

worsening of blood supply of eyebulb and CNS in general. This is caused by high axial load on the spine in the sitting position, by incorrect posture. As a rule, vasoconstriction of a retina and a brain is detected, venous outflow disturbamce is revealed;

general asthenisation of the body;

digestive system disorder, pathology of small intestine especially. Thus, there should be a complex therapy of myopia.

It makes sense to carry out a preventive therapy of children during the period of asthenopic complaints appearance due to high possibility of myopia development in a definite group of children that present a risk group (age, intense study, incorrect posture, susceptibility to frequent catarrhal illnesses, etc.)

The most effective and safe is therapy by means of physiotherapeutic procedures. Methods of magnetotherapy, electrophoresis and laser therapy have positive but very short-term effect.

Prescription of mydriatics is effective enough (iriphryn 2.5%), they relax ciliary muscle. However, this muscle will spasm later if not trained. Special exercises for eyes gives a positive effect but it should be done regularly. Therewith, infancy habits should be taken into consideration. Some diligence is required; unfortunately, it is impossible to control correctness of its application.

Dynamic electroneurostimulation method has been applied in ophthalmology since recent times. Numerous previous researches are the evidence of that fact that multilevel reflex and neurochemical reactions that start up a cascade of regulatory and adaptive mechanisms of the body underlie a therapeutic action of dynamic electroneurostimulation (DENAS). As a result, pain syndromes are eliminated, blood flow is improved, anti-inflammatory action takes place, biologically active substances formation is activated, metabolic processes in tissues occur, muscle and vascular tone is normalized.

The purpose of this work is to study an effectiveness of preventive DENAS in children of infancy with risk of myopia progression.

Group of patients with myopia of low and middle degree in the age interval from 7 to 16 years old was chosen. There were 48 patients altogether. This group was using DENAS method in 15 sessions course in a “Therapy” mode at 77 Hz frequency at minimal comfortable level of intensity. Duration of session was 10 minutes. Duration of follow-ups of patients made up to 1.5 years. Sessions were repeated in accordance with individual indications, depending on asthenopic complains appearance. All the patients were examined thoroughly (central visual acuity determination, spare accommodation determination, biomicroscopy, ophthalmoscopy, ultrasonic diagnostics, autorefractometry).

Group of patients with myopia was observed during 2-3 years which gives an opportunity to make a comparison with the results of previous therapy courses (without DENAS-therapy). Effectiveness of therapy increased and constituted 0.5-1.5 diopter when using dynamic electroneurostimulation. Especially evident effect was received in patients with spasm of accommodation (92 %) and myopia of low degree (86 %). Reserve of positive part of accommodation increased from (-)0.5 to (-)3.0 diopters and higher virtually in all patients with accommodation cramp. 70 % of refraction normalized in patients with low degree ofmyopia. Reserve of positive part of accommodation normalized. For patients with medium degree of myopia an effect turned to be not that high. Myopia reduction made up 1.0 diopter in average. Reserve of positive part of accommodation increased from (-)0.0 to (-)2.0 diopters.

Asthenopic complaints were eliminated in 90 % of cases at the end of therapy. No side effects or complications were noticed during DENAS application. Therapeutic effect remained in average during 3-4 months when having myopia of medium degree and up to 6 month when having myopia of low degree. Comparative analyses of effectiveness with previous traditional therapy in the same group of patients demonstrated high percentage of myopiastabilization – near 90 %. Only 50 % of patients demonstrated stabilization previously.

Thus, DENAS application for prophylaxis of myopia of low and medium degree development and therapy has an evident therapeutic effect. Course duration is about 10 to 15 days. It is necessary to select repeated courses individually and in accordance with asthenopic complaints of patients appearance and clinical examination results. Refractometry and accommodation reserve determination should be considered as main diagnostic methods. Preventive character of DENAS application provides myopia stabilization. It is reasonable to apply it in groups with increased risk of myopia progression.

Saint-Petersburg, Russia

Different effects become apparent in the process of dynamic electrotherapy (DENAS) application; significant ones are anaesthetic, anti-edematous, anti-inflammatory, vasodilating and spasmolytic when implementing conservative and operative therapy of children with infantile cerebral paralysis (ICP). High muscle tone and motor function disorder as a result of central nervous system affection are differential clinical syndromes ofinfantile cerebral paralysis. However, existing clinical observations of positive DENAS impact on the functional state of neuromuscular device of children with ICP were not accompanied by neurophysiology methods till present time.

Purpose of the research: was analysis of dynamic electrotherapy impact on the state of neuromuscular device of children with ICP during complex orthopedic-surgical therapy.

Materials and methods of the research

A research of contractile function of dorsum and lower extremities muscles was carried out using the method of global electromyography (EMG) in 25 children with infantile cerebral paralysis in the age from 4 to 14 years old. 5 persons out of them were examined on the all stages of therapy including preoperative preparation, postoperative period and rehabilitation period. 12 children were examined only during postoperative period, and 8 children were examined only during preoperative preparation. Standard DENAS therapy course included 10 sessions. The research was carried out before the course was started as well as after it was finished.

The research was carried out with the help of “NEURO-MVP-4″ electroneuromyograph made by “Neurosoft” company (Russia) applying standard ground lead electrodes. Isometric mode with evaluation of amplitude and structural indices of electrogenesis of muscles under study in the projection of motor points was used. Longitudinal dorsal muscles on a level of thorax and lumbar region, tibial muscles (gastrocnemius muscle and anterior tibial muscle) and femoral muscles (rectus muscle of thigh, quadriceps muscle of thigh, tibial flexor muscles, adductor femoral muscle) were chosen for the research.

The Results

Electrogenesis of reduced amplitude, 50-70% lower than age norm, with saturated pattern of action potential (AP) typical for the central dysfunction of motor structures activation and muscle tone increase by pyramidal type was registered at the initial stage in the muscles of lower extremities. Structural changes typical for the moderate segmental dysfunction of lumbar enlargement motoneurons with alpha- and gamma-motoneurons activation acceleration regulation also were registered in the 85% of cases.

Decay of amplitude indices in the dorsal muscles on the initial stage was expressed less and made up 30% of the age norm; the same structural changes were registered.

76% of children showed electrogenesis amplitude increase of studied muscled 18-22% in comparison with initial indices after DENAS course. Increment of amplitude indices in the femoral muscles came to 28% for 12 children. Electrogenesis amplitude increase in the dorsal muscles was less expressed, only 11-15% from initial data. Structural changes stayed the same.

Preliminary results evaluation of electroneurophysiological examination of children with ICP allows to assume that changes received could be associated with evident vasoactive action of DENAS. Blood circulation enhancement of ischemic tissues in the stimulation zone activates metabolic and trophic processes not only in the zone of impact, but also in the deep-underlying tissues, as well as in the zones that are segmentally connected with them. Also, reserve functional abilities of tissues are stimulated and regulating influence on the segmental and motorneuronic device is exerted as a result of general impact on the body.

On the ground of data received preconditions for further research of possibility of positive DENAS effect on the central nervous system regulating mechanisms when having long-term exposure to the indicated therapy are created.

High importance in reduction of blood pressure is attached to non-drug therapy. A specific non-drug therapy can become an initial stage of therapy of patients with slight bloodhypertension, and prevent hypertension development in patients with a high risk of cardiovascular complications. In addition, non-drug methods enable to control BP under lower doses of hypotensive preparations.

Purpose of the research: to assess clinical efficiency of Denas energy healing in complex therapy of patients with essential hypertension of 2-3 stage.

Patients and methods. The main group (Main gr.) consisted of 25 people in the age from 48 to 65 years, average age – 53+1.7; 15 men (60 %) and 10 women (40 %). The control group (Control gr.) consisted of 25 people. The groups correlated by age, gender and duration of the disease. Concurrent pathology in both groups: CHD, angina pectoris of 2nd-3rd functional class; some patients had in their past history coronary stenting or coronary artery grafting, pancreatic diabetes of the 2nd type — subcompensated form in more than 50 % of cases.

All patients had general clinical investigation, EKG, daily EKG and BP monitoring, veloergometry (VEM) according to standard order of procedures.

Patients of both groups had standard basic hypotensive therapy: APF inhibitors in medium-therapeutic doses, beta-blockers, diuretics.

Additionally the main group had been healed by DENAS by standard methods (combination of corporal zones and auricular points). Duration of the therapy course was 10 days.

Results and discussion.

1. By the data of daily monitoring in the main group, inclusion of DENAS energy healing into complex therapy of patients with essential hypertension resulted in reduction of average BP in 88 % of patients without changing the basis therapy. The degree of reduction of daily average pressure in patients was from 10 mmHg to 20 mmHg and more. The results are given in the Table below.

The majority of patients had average BP stabilized during course therapy within the limits of up to 20 mmHg. No changes in the BP level in the control group were registered in 19 patients, whereas in the main group which had additional therapy with DENAS only 3 patients did not have their BP changed.

2. Analysis of the data of daily EKG monitoring has revealed that patients who have additional Denas energy healing of corporal zones and auricular points had a reduced number of heart rate disorders by 56 %. And in the control group who had only basis therapy, reduction of the amount of disorders was registered only in 24 % of cases.

3. Clinically all patients noted good tolerance of procedures, improvement of the general state of health and sleep. No negative effects and side effects were registered.

Thus, at regular course application of DENAS energy healing, stabilization of the course of essential hypertension and improvement of the patient’s quality of life can be achieved.

Also, you can reduce the heat by a Denas-therapy.  When a fever occurs need to apply device in the mode “Therapy” on the carotid arteries, in the hamstring, elbow and arm pits (15-20 seconds each zone). Relief will not come immediately, but after a while  it will be soft  reduction of temperature. In addition to these areas in the therapeutic session should include the working at immune zones (point he-gu, 7th cervical vertebra and so on). Sessions repeat  in 1,5-2 hours.

After the illness, people feel differently. If you have a headache, the blood pressure rises, apply DiaDens-PCM at a frequency “7710” on neck and collar area. Sessions at this frequency can also be performed when insomnia and increased excitability. Frequency «77AM», in contrast, charges “your batteries” almost instantly. It can be used in situations when you need the energy “here and now, “as well as after the illness, when the weakness and apathy continue haunt you. Just 20 minutes of application each day on neck and collar zone and you will feel how the vitality comes back to you again.

Emergency aid

Denas energy therapy in extreme situations
 

Any extreme situation requires of the participants efficiency and skill to render emergency  aid. For everyone who lives an active life and goes in for sports. It Is important to receive a quick and quality result and have independence in decision-making. It is recommended for such people to make use of the DENAS device right after the injury to receive a quick recovery and be able to set up new records.

Pain in the muscles, overstrain as a result of physical training, physical loads. The right and left zones along the vertebral column, the projection of the muscle pain are healed within the permanent mode. The duration of the procedure is 30-40 minutes. It can be combined with classical massage. The device relieves the pain and spasm, providing for the elasticity of the muscles and making the massage easier.

Injury of soft tissues, hematoma. Within the permanent mode at the possible maximum energy level the device is moved along the injured area to cup off the pain, edema, reddening. The duration of the procedure is from several minutes to one hour depending on the injury. The sooner the DENAS energy therapy is applied, the quicker the recovery comes.

Burn, frostbite. Within the permanent mode at the minimal energy level the device is carefully replaced in the desired zone (avoid pressing and moving sharply). The total duration is until pain relief. The procedure can be repeated during the day, if necessary. The result of therapy is full recovery of the injured skin area (regeneration).

Bleeding (injury, cut). Put together the edges of the wound and apply electrodes. The mode is permanent, the energy level is comfortable. Keep the electrodes until cessation of bleeding for about 5-15 minutes. If you continue applying the device, you will receive full recovery without any trace of the scar.

Stings. In this case the main problem is itching, possible edema and inflammation accompanied by high temperature. Apply the device to the troubled zone within the permanent mode and at a tolerable energy level. The duration is 10-15 minutes. Repeat the procedure, if required.

Injury of the capsular ligamentous system of the joint. Within the permanent mode at the maximum energy level heal the projection of the joint, the device being placed in the Injured area until cupping-off or pain relief. The duration Is 20-60 minutes. A serious injury requires immobilization (fixation) with a bandage or splint. The device should be applied repeatedly (the bandage should be removed if a plaster Is applied). The zone below and above the fixation Is healed. The results of the therapy are quick recovery of the injured area, minimal complications (contracture, ankylosis).

Children’s psoriasis

Denas application for therapy of children’s psoriasis  

Drozdova L.N., Tulenkova E.S., Timokhina L.A.

Skin diseases clinic,

Pediatric Academy

Saint-Petersburg, Russia

Assessment of clinical efficiency of dynamic electro therapy (DENAS) for healing psoriasis of children in the age from 12 to 17 years was carried out in the skin diseases clinics of Saint-Petersburg Pediatric Academy.

The children were divided into two groups: main group included 20 persons; the control group included 15 persons. Children of the main group had basic therapy and DENAS; children of the control group had only basic therapy. Both groups included children with extensive psoriasis at the progressive stage. 70 % of patients in both groups had an accompanying diagnosis of biliary dyskinesia; 30 % of patients had chronic tonsillitis.

The main group had DENAS by the following methods: direct projection of the complaint – in the “therapy” mode at frequency 77 Hz, energy range (ER) 2, stable method of application during 10 minutes. Universal zones (the zone of posterior middle meridian, the zone of “consent points”, and the zone of hands) were healed in the “test” mode – ER 2 with subsequent therapy of latent trigger zones (LTZ) in the “therapy” mode at frequency 77 Hz, ER 2. Immune zones: 7SP, projection zone of adrenal glands, he-gu zone were healed in the “therapy” mode at frequency 77 Hz, ER 2; projection zones of intestines and liver- in the “therapy” mode at frequency 77 Hz, ER 2. stable or labile method of application (in the absence of plates on the abdomen skin) during 15-20 minutes. Not more that 2-3 zones were healed during one procedure, therapy time –30-40 minutes. therapy course lasted 20-25 days. Psoriatic eruptions were healed with  Malavtilin” cream before DENAS procedure.

When in the hospital, all children had basic therapy: 10 % solution of calcium gluconate I.M., vitamin therapy, hepatoprotectors, sorbents, external therapy (2 % salicylic ointment, Unna’s cream, papaverine ointment, 5 % methyluracil cream). Children with universal skin affection had disintoxication therapy (I.V. drop-by-drop solutions of hemodesis and reamberine).

Patients of the main group had improvement of the general state of health by the 4th-5th day of therapy course: skin itch decreased, eruptions of new psoriatic papule stopped, other skin eruptions were flattened and bleached, desquamation of eruptions decreased.

In the control group, the same process dynamics was observed only after 16-17 days after therapy start. Patients of the main group with tonsillogenous psoriasis had successful (for the first time!!!) improvement of the process on skin without use of antibiotic therapy. One patient of the main group had a severe form of psoriasis exudativa with arthropathia. Starting from the first DENAS procedures, edema and joint painfulness were reduced considerably. This girl had therapy courses in our skin diseases clinic several times. However, it was this time when, in spite of accompanying psoriatic arthritis, improvement of the skin process came two times faster than usual.

Patients with DENAS electro therapy unlike patients of the control group had more pronounced increase of vitality and intensification of positive emotions and physical activities. Moreover, these children became more stable from the psychological point of view as compared with the control group. By the results of our research, in children having DENAS in complex therapy of psoriasis, stabilization of regress of the skin process begins within shorter terms, which reduces the period of staying in the hospital, improves life quality and makes the therapy process pleasant and comfortable.

Dens-glasses in prevention of eye fatigue

Dens-glasses in prevention of eye fatigue
 

Svetlana Bogacheva, MD, ophthalmologist, research worker of center “Ophtalmology” and Ural State Medical Academy, Russia, Director of  

“Dr Bogacheva clinic” (http://prozrenie.org/)

It is said “eye – a “part of the brain,” moved out at the periphery. It is not only the “mirror of the soul”, but also a mirror of our health, because the structure of the eye is very sensitive to any harmful factors.

Anlage of visual system begins from the 4th week of pregnancy and mother’s diseases cause changes in the structures of child’s eyes. It is well known in medicine that severe influenza during pregnancy can cause the congenital glaucoma in child’s organism. If mother suffered from rubella during pregnancy in most of the cases child will suffer from congenital cataracts.

Birth injuries can be also cause of different conditions: strabismus, visual impairment (amblyopia), and delayed development of vision.

So, you need a method of therapy that is available, simple and effective?

Yes, and I found one of such methods – DENAS energy therapy. It can be applied right after appearance of dysfunctions independently of patient’s age. Even if DENS-glasses are not suitable for newborn you can use any universal DENAS energy therapy device over collar, back of the head, neck zones, “6 points on the face” zone. It will help to become central neural system and visual analyzer fully ripe.

But then, when we helped child and restored visual system, he grew till 2-3 years old and become to watch TV, paint, look at the pictures in the books, so he gets quite strong visual load.

In order to keep eyesight in perfect condition I recommend conducting 3-4 courses of DENAS energy therapy a year. 1 course takes 5-7 days. You just need to find 10-15 minutes a day for 1 dens energy therapy session.

Current education system requires reading and writing skills from 6 years old children. That is why from 4 years old, when the visual system is still not completely developed,  parents usually start learn reading, computer games, watch cartoon films. Therefore children spend more time concentrating at the table, but don’t get enough movements for general health and normal visual system development.

DENS-glasses will be the very thing you need to provide eye therapy and prevention at home. If you organize DENAS energy therapy session as a part of children’s game, it will be very easy to habituate your child to recurrent DENAS energy therapy sessions. DENAS energy therapy repetition rates can vary greatly: from two procedures a week up to 2-5 procedures a day depending on therapy or prevention requirements.

– Usually child goes to school with shining eyes and happy face. Then the exertions in school, incorrect posture, TV and computer tire his eyes so much that cause at first asthenopia and then the myopia. And most parents begin to worry about child’s vision when he begins to complain that he can’t see anything on the blackboard.

No need to wait for the complaints! Vision falls gradually, and the complaint is a signal of neglect. Need to have the prevention of eye fatigue since the elementary school. Especially because in this age the child can master himself the DENAS energy therapy and get used to apply it.

The development of human eyesight system is completed up to 10-12 years of age. All the “baby” disorders (amblyopia, strabismus) should be corrected as possible up to this age.

– Elder pupils, students, people who work much with a computer or with small objects, drivers and many other professionals are in need for the prevention of eye fatigue.

Age changes – presbyopia or aged long sight begin at 40 years of age. It is result of aged loss of elasticity of the crystalline lens. Man begins to see up close badly, first moves the text, and then begins to use the glasses. The cause of the vision decrease in old age can also be the clouding of the lens (cataract), glaucoma, retinal dystrophy and many other disorders. All these diseases are closely connected to overall body health.

And one of the components of the overall therapy of age-related disorders should be correction with the help of DENS-glasses. The methodical use of DENS-glasses can not only reduce the development of disorders, but also help to achieve appreciable vision return.

Burns

Denas application in complex therapy of burns
 

FAYAZOV A.D., RUZIMURODOV D.A.,

Republic Scientific Center of Emergency Medical Aid

Tashkent, Uzbekistan

In spite of certain success achieved during the past decades in burns medicine, the problem of pain relief under thermal injuries is not resolved completely. Introduction of modern high-efficient preparations for general anaesthesia of the burnt is under development now. However, side effects of the majority of these medicines set severe restrictions to their practical use. In this connection, a new trend in the clinical burns medicine is being developed with application of non-drug methods of pain relief in patients with thermal injuries.

Application of the method of dynamic electro stimulation (DENAS) in local therapy of burns is one of the prospective trends for resolving this problem.

The purpose of the present work was to assess DENAS influence on intensity of the pain syndrome and terms of burning wound healing.

55 burnt with the burn area from 5 to 30 % of the skin surface were included into the research, average age was 34.6±l.6 years. The patients were divided into two groups: the main (25 people) and the control (30 people). The main group had DENAS from theDiaDens-T device in addition to drug therapy. The procedures were carried out once a day. An individual recipe of therapy was selected according to the recommended methods. Patients of the control group had only standard conservative therapy. To make the results more objective, patients of the main and control group were asked to assess intensity of the pain syndrome daily, the course of the wound process was examined at the same time.

All 25 patients who had complex therapy with DENAS application, all had a positive therapeutic effect in the form of pain relief, increase of active motions and improvement of the general state of health. Analgesic effect of the DENAS electro stimulation was registered after 1-2 procedures. Reduction of the pain syndrome was registered by the 5th-6th procedure. As regards the wound process, reduction of inflammatory effects, terms of acceleration of wound cleansing and epithelization were registered. In the control group, the pain syndrome lasted out during much longer periods (up to 2-3 weeks), terms of cleansing and healing of the burning wound were also longer.

Thus, inclusion of DENAS electro stimulation into complex therapy of the burns promotes reduction of the pain syndrome and acceleration of epithelization of the burning wound.

NPC “Ophthalmology”, Yekaterinburg, Russia

Influence of dynamic electrotimulation (DENAS) on engraftment of the corneal flap after excimer-laser surgeries (after lasik surgeries), possibilities of increasing functional results and reducing rehabilitation periods was studied in 30 patients as well as DENAS influence on ophthalmo-ergonomic indexes which influence visual efficiency in the post-operative period. The results are the evidence that DENAS applied after lasik surgeries have a joint multi-component effect: have a pronounced analgetic and anti-edema effect, results in acceleration of engraftment of the corneal epithelial flap, promotes more qualitative regeneration of the cornea, improvement and faster restoration of visual functions, provides for increasing and faster stabilization of the refractive effect, increase of its forecast accuracy.

Nowadays excimer-laser surgery (lasik surgery) is a basis for refractive operations for myopia correction. The basic methods are LASEK (EPI-LASIK) and LASIK (TNTRA-LASIK). Any surgical methods have their certain disadvantages. These include pain syndrome in the early postoperative period, defective engraftment of the corneal flap as well as prolonged restoration of visual functions which influence visual capacity. In the scientific literature a great attention is given to the issue of corneal flap engraftment after eye surgeries [5, 9].

A relation between the speed and nature of corneal epithelial flap engraftment and degree of its transparency in the future was discovered, which in its turn influence the refractive result of the surgical operation carried out [2, 3]. Assessment of professional capabilities of the organ of vision in patients after refractive operations is also of great interest. A number of authors note that some functions such as low-contrast visual acuity, spatial contrast sensitivity, blinding sensitivity are restored after surgeries within the periods up to 6 months. “Dry eye syndrome” occurring transiently and some other complications are the biggest problem of modern refractive surgery.  Bulk of practical investigations is connected with drug therapy of these complications.

Along with the above, electro stimulation is known to be applied in ophthalmology for therapy of different pathologic processes [1, 4, 6, 8, 10]. A positive influence of electro stimulation for resolving many problems can be noted.

The purpose of the present research is to study influence of dynamic electroneurostimulation on engraftment of the corneal flap after eye surgeries in compliance with LASEK technology and possibility of improving functional results as well as reduction of terms of visual functions restoration which is especially important in professions making raised demands of the visual analyzer.

Materials and methods. healing set consisting of transcutaneous electrostimulator “DENAS” and external paraorbital electrode “DENS-GLASSES were applied for the research. DENAS results after refractive surgeries for myopia were studied in 30 patients (60 eyes) –15 men (50.0 %) and 15 women (50.0 %) in the 23-47 years (on average 30.4±0.8 years).Myopia degree varied from –5.0 to –16.0 dptr, average value –9.79±0.25 dptr. Patients in the main and control groups were selected as to have approximately equal degree ofmyopia, corneametric data and extent of operation. For research excimer laser MEL-60 (Germany) was used.

DENAS was carried out starting from the 1st day after the eye surgery. therapy was applied in the paraorbital zone in the MED program, and then in the “THERAPY” mode at frequency 77 Hz during 10 minutes; in the cervical-collar zone – in the “TEST” mode, with therapy of found latent trigger zones in the “THERAPY” mode at frequency 77 Hz –3-5 minutes for each zone. Each patient had 12-14 procedures.

For assessment of the results in the main and control groups, the following tests were carried out:

check of visual acuity with correction;

check of low-contrast visual acuity with help of the projector of test signs – Carl Zeiss Jena at 18 % contrast;

reserve of relative accommodation;

terms and quality of corneal flap engraftment and subjective sensations.

Results and discussion. All patients in the main group had a pronounced analgetic effect registered – intensity of the sensation of pain was lower and pain relieved earlier than in the control group.

No intolerance of procedures, allergic reactions were registered in the main group. A special attention was paid to the manifestation degree of the postoperative reaction. Degree of corneal syndrome in the main group was less and corneal epithelial flap engraftment was faster.

Two variants of corneal epithelial flap engraftment were discovered: favorable – full engraftment and unfavorable – a small edge defect of the flap with edematic edges and areas of loose flexible engraftment.

A favorable variant of cornea epithetization was registered (100 % of cases) in all eyes in the main group which had DENAS.

In the control group, which did not have DENAS, favorable variant was registered in 47 (78.3 of cases). In 13 eyes (21.7%) an unfavorable variant of corneal epithelial flap engraftment was registered, which was accompanied by the corneal syndrome. A direct relation between a edema degree of the corneal epithelium and nature of its healing was registered: the more the edema – the worse the healing.

Terms of corneal epithelial flap engraftment in the main group were shorter than in the control group. Terms of corneal epithelial flap engraftment in the main group did not exceed 48 hours in 100 % of cases; in the control group – only 37 eyes (61.7 %) had engraftment during 48 hours, 21 eyes (35.0 %) – 72 hours, 2 eyes (3.3 %) had corneal epithelial flap engrafted in the later period.

Acute Trauma

Dukhin A.G. Regional Diagnostic Center Ust-Kamenogorsk. Kazakh Republic Recently, application of dynamic electro stimulation in traumatological patients has become urgent in our situation. This is especially evident in a severe trauma and its consequences, when the application of DENAS electrotherapy to the injured area results in fast pain relief, decrease of the bruise area and tissue edema. To great surprise of the patients, who had undergone conventional therapy in various city hospitals, in two or three days of DENAS electrotherapy they experienced dramatic improvement so that they quit any kind of therapy as they considered themselves healthy. Patients who sought medical attention in 2-3 weeks after the occurrence of the traumatological event or those who had developed a chronic condition in their joints (arthrosis, arthritis) as well as those presenting with a disease or injury of the spinal column had to undergo prolonged therapy. In some cases it could take 2 or 3 weeks. Patients with developed arthrosis of the joint are of particular interest as far as their therapy is concerned. Program of therapy is to be developed for every individual and therapy is carried out in accordance with the pathological state.

Acupuncture without needles

For a long time people have been treated by remedies from nature such as water, mud, heat and cold. With advances in medicine, these remedies have advance and entered a technique of application called physiotherapy. In the twentieth century with the forces of nature used in medicine added one more – electricity. There are a lot of ways to use electricity for treatment and diagnosis in medicine – from a powerful discharge which starts a stopped heart to the ECG Screening and encephalogram. At the beginning of the XXI century another treatment method of reflexology got dissemination that’s based on the application of an electric current – dynamic electro- neurostimulation (DENAS). DENAS method is the impact of pulsed current on the direct projection of the pathological focus (pain, swelling, inflammation), on the reflex zones and acupuncture points.
