Changes in postprandial acid pocket and its role in the development of gastroesophageal reflux in patients with complicated forms of peptic ulcer
24 - 28
Daily esophago−pH−impedance monitoring in patients with complicated forms of peptic ulcer revealed the presence of an acid pocket, which in postprandial period was a major source of acid gastroesophageal reflux. The longest acid reflux was recorded at the location of the acid pocket above the diaphragm in the hiatal hernia cavity.
Diagnosis of burn depth with elastography.
29 - 32
Elastography with compression and shear waves was used to diagnose the depth of burns in patients both during admission and during treatment within the first 24 hours. Critical parameters of tissue stiffness (in kPa) allowing to diagnose superficial and deep burns with a high degree of probability and thereby determine the methods and extent of local and general treatment were established.
Diagnosis and treatment of adolescents with abnormal uterine bleeding with the account of vaginal biocenosis character
33 - 36
The results of diagnosis and treatment of adolescent girls with abnormal uterine bleeding of the pubertal period are presented. Bacteriological investigation of the state of the vaginal microbiocenosis was carried out, the species and quantitative composition of the bacterial vaginal microflora under was studied. Microscopic investigation revealed a high number of leukocytes in the vaginal secretion. It was determined to be expedient to perform investigation and timely correction of the microbiocenosis of the urogenital tract as well as to use probiotics in the treatment protocol to correct the vaginal microflora.

Efficacy assessment of preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy in patients of increased reproductive age at IVF
40 - 44
The frequency of aneuploidy was determined in different age groups of patients; efficacy of preimplantation genetic testing (PGT−A) in programs of in vitro fertilization in women of increased reproductive age was assessed. It was shown that incidence of aneuploidy embryos progressively decreased with the age, but this did not affect the ability to implant them. Importantly, implantation rates and incidence of pregnancy development were found to be higher in the group where PGT−A was used.
