Abstract. The work deals with investigation of the functional state of peripheral hemodynamics in children with reactive arthropathy. The purpose of the work was to investigate rheographic indices in children aged 2−17 with reactive arthropathy involving knee joints. Peripheral hemodynamics was assessed at analysis of rheovasography data which was done using diagnostic computer complex "Reo−Spectr+". The indices of pulse blood supply, the state of vascular tone of large, medium, small arteries, interaction of arterial and venous levels of blood circulation, venous outflow were investigated. Total blood filling of organs and tissues was assessed. It was revealed that homodynamic disorders (deficiency of compensation of peripheral hemodynamics in the area of the foot, compensation of hemodynamic disorders in the area of the shin exceeding 2 times hemodynamic changes in the area of the foot) were formed in the proximal and distal from the involved knee joint regions.
Key words: reactive arthropathy, peripheral hemodynamics, children.
