The 24th Congress of the CPSU and the next health challenges

Mukhutdinov I.Z.


The 24th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union was a major event in the life of the Soviet people, an important milestone in the construction of communism. The Congress summed up the results of the past five-year plan and developed a scientifically substantiated programme for the coming years. The Congress convincingly demonstrated the world-historical significance of communist construction in the USSR and demonstrated the advantages of the Soviet state system on the irrefutable facts of the life of the Soviet people.

On carcinogenic hydrocarbons in soils of the Soviet Union

Shabad L.M., Ilnitsky A.P., Kogan Y.L., Smirnov G.A., Shcherbak N.P.


When investigating environmental contamination by any widespread damaging agent (radioactive substances, pesticides, various other chemical compounds), researchers inevitably turn to the study of soil contamination by this agent. This was the case with carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Following the detection of these substances in the atmospheric air of cities, studies have been carried out aimed at their indication in soil.

On spontaneous regression of malignant tumours

Vylegzhanin N.I.


Spontaneous regression of malignant neoplasms is known in both clinical and experimental tumour pathology. However, this is not universally accepted as a possible outcome of tumour disease; furthermore, there are many well-founded statements about the improbability of such a process.

Some data on aerocarcinogens

Smirnov G.A.


Vehicle exhaust gases are one of the main sources of atmospheric air pollution by products of incomplete fuel combustion. A number of studies have proved that soot and exhaust gases from internal combustion engines used in road transport contain carcinogenic substances and among them benz(a)pyrene (BP), a polycyclic hydrocarbon that is most persistent in the environment and very active in carcinogenic terms.

Some results of a study of the epidemiology of malignant lip tumours using mathematical modelling

Dolgintsev V.I.


Modeling was carried out according to the methods developed at the Department of Malignant Tumor Epidemiology and Medical Cybernetics Laboratory of the Institute of Experimental and Clinical Oncology of the USSR Academy of Medical Sciences based on one of the principles of computer "training" for classification of complex situations proposed by the Institute of Automatics and Telemechanics of the USSR Academy of Sciences (the principle of forming a generalized class portrait, where a complex situation is a set of factors taking into account their mutual influence and interrelation chosen by a researcher to find out the role of this set in the genesis of one form of cancer (in this case of malignant lip tumors - one situation) and in norm (control group - another situation).

Large intestinal tumours in the clinic of acute intestinal obstruction

Bashkov Y.A., Perevoshchikov Y.V.


The course of colorectal cancer in 25-35% of patients is complicated by acute bowel obstruction. In some institutions, 75% of colorectal cancer patients are admitted for emergency surgery due to this complication. This situation makes the issue proposed for discussion an urgent one.

On the development of hypernephroid cancer from the epithelium of the Shumlansky-Bowman capsule

Dadykina V.I.


Of the 300 hypernephrotic cancer patients we observed, 5 (31 to 70 years of age) developed cancer from the epithelium of the Shumlansky-Beaumann capsule. The duration of the disease ranged from one year to 16 years. In 3 patients the tumours were diagnosed clinically and operatively removed. In 2 patients the tumour was detected accidentally in the section and was not clinically evident.

Blood examination by leucocyte concentration method in patients with acute leukaemia

Vorobiev Y.A., Chudnovskaya I.V.


One of the modern methods that allow peripheral blood to be studied on a broad morphological scale is the leukoconcentration method. It can be used to increase the concentration of leucocytes in a preparation by a factor of 50-60 compared to the initial level, i.e. to achieve a concentration of bone marrow punctate cells. Haematologists have been using this method since the 50s to detect blood elements rarely seen in conventional tests.

About partial lung resections for cancer

Ratner G.L., Varguzina V.I.


Recently, both in domestic and foreign literature there are more and more works devoted to the choice of the volume of resections in primary lung cancer. Some authors, comparing the results of operations after partial resections and pneumonectomies, come to the conclusion that lobectomy may be the operation of choice in primary lung cancer; others, having developed broader indications for lobectomies, resort to them quite often, not opposing them to pneumonectomies. The expediency of partial resections and the indications for them should be determined by studying the immediate and, mainly, long-term results of surgical treatment of primary lung cancer.

On the scope of radical operations for colorectal cancer

Parakhonyak V.I.


Colorectal cancer has been occurring more and more frequently in recent years. From 1950 to 1964, 188 patients were operated on in our clinic with various localizations of colorectal cancer (except rectum), and 149 patients over the last six years, which indicates not only improved diagnostics and increased interest in this form of cancer from our side, but also an absolute increase in colorectal cancer.

Serum protein status in the immediate postoperative period in patients with rectal cancer

Eliseev M.N.


We studied the fractional composition of serum proteins in patients with rectal cancer. We were interested in the deviation of protein metabolism from the norm observed before surgery and immediately after surgery (on the operating table). Patients were examined on the operating table before and after the operation, on the 1-2-3-5-7th postoperative days. Total protein was determined refractometrically, serum protein fractions by electrophoresis on Flin and Meio paper.

Morphocycline in the treatment of chronic calculous pyelonephritis

Uchugina A.F., Krasilnikova M.V., Usova R.M.


In pyelonephritis the infective and inflammatory process is localised not only to the renal pelvis and calyx but also to the renal parenchyma with predominant involvement of the interstitial tissue. The cure requires high doses of antibiotics in both urine and blood, because the infection in the interstitial tissue is only exposed to antibiotics via the haematogenous route. The new antibiotic morphocycline (methylmorpho-lyntetracycline) has proved to be extremely valuable in this respect.

Nephrotoxic poisoning

Mukhametzyanov S.A.


Acute renal failure in poisoning is common, and mortality remains high despite modern treatment methods. A. Y. Pytel and S. D. Goligorski, K.T. Hovnatanyan and others believe that shock leading to renal ischaemia and anoxia is the main cause of acute renal failure in all types of poisoning, but direct nephrotoxic effect of poison on the kidney, and the involvement of an allergic component is not excluded. Acute renal failure develops most frequently in poisonings with acids and alkalis, salts of heavy metals, antifreeze, barbiturates, alcohol and its derivatives, organophosphorus compounds, chlorinated hydrocarbons, salicylates and sulphamides, plant poisons (mushrooms), etc.

On redox processes in digestive diseases

Oparin A.G.


The role of the digestive system in the trophic function of the body is well known. Certain pathological conditions of the gastrointestinal tract can lead not only to impaired absorption of metabolic products, but also to changes in the biosynthesis of vitamins, constituting prosthetic coenzyme groups that are involved in redox processes. Hence, the study of the state of metabolic-enzymatic processes in diseases of the mentioned system is obviously of certain importance both in understanding the severity of the disease and in choosing an effective therapy.

Differential diagnosis of pneumonia and tuberculosis at the present stage

Girshov B.D., Barkan I.L.


The need to differentiate between pneumonia and pulmonary tuberculosis is quite common. In recent years, the diagnosis of these diseases has become more difficult. This is due to the fact that the differences in the clinical course of pneumonia and tuberculosis have become blurred. On the one hand, there is an increase in the frequency of sluggish pneumonia, and on the other hand, there is an increase in the number of persons with minor forms of tuberculosis.

Use of 17-oxyprogesterone-capronate in genital endometriosis

Shinkareva L.F., Nagovitsyna A.I.


Among the existing treatments for endometriosis patients, hormone therapy has attracted particular attention in recent years. Experimental and clinical observations have established that the growth and development of endometroid heterotopias occurs against a background of hormonal imbalance in the female body. An increased secretion of oestrogenic hormones and an insufficient function of corpus luteum hormone play a major role.

Percutaneous colpopoiesis for vaginal atresia after radiotherapy

Kozlov L.A.


G., 32 years old, was admitted on 28/III 1969 for vaginal atresia. She underwent a simple uterine extirpation with appendages in 1961 (diagnosis: uterine chorionepithelioma with metastasis to the anterior vaginal wall). In the post-operative period, which proceeded without complications, she received a full course of combined radiation therapy. She remained under outpatient observation for the following years. In 1963 she received radiotherapy due to a lump in the vaginal stump. Since 1968 she has been experiencing pain and discomfort during intercourse. Pain during sexual intercourse had increased considerably recently, which prompted her to come to the clinic.

Labor management in women with a uterine scar

Davydova M.A., Tukhvatullina L.M.


The main cause of uterine rupture is pathological changes in the uterus, of which postoperative scarring is the most important. It is therefore of great importance to assess the integrity of the postoperative uterine scar. Dual contrast and hysterography are effective methods for determining the completeness of the uterine scar.

Peculiarities of the mental development of children born under obstetric pathology

Gaifullin A.U.


We studied the mental and physical development of 90 children aged 9 to 13 years, born under obstetric pathology. The main emphasis was placed on the study of personality and character formation, intellectual development, and the presence of certain symptoms of higher nervous system disorders. When parents were interviewed, special attention was paid to the course of pregnancy, infectious and other diseases suffered by the mother during this period, her taking fetal drugs during pregnancy and other factors that could adversely affect the developing fetus.

About cancer chemotherapy in an oncology ward

Gusarov Y.P.


Until now only 12% of those who come to our clinic for internal malignancies are curable, 25% can be treated with no guarantee of success and 63% of patients are not curable at all. This dictates that chemotherapy for malignant tumours must be administered in the oncology department of the outpatient clinic.

Sarcomas of the duodenum are very rare. By 1953, according to S.M. Freidlin, only 80 cases had been published in the world literature, followed by 3 more. More often the disease is diagnosed during surgery or at autopsy. Preoperative diagnosis is extremely rare. The clinical picture of sarcoma, like other tumours of this localisation, lacks sufficiently characteristic symptoms.

The course of the postpartum period in pregnant women with late-onset toxemia

Prorokova V.K., Ackerman L.I., Kruglyakova A.A.


In recent years it has been noted that morbidity and mortality from puerperal septic diseases both abroad and in the USSR have started to increase again. We believe that the solution to the problem of further reduction of postpartum infectious diseases should follow the path of in-depth study of the causes favourable for the development of infectious processes in the body after childbirth. Since late toxicosis is the most frequent complication of pregnancy, it seems important to study its effect on the course of the postpartum period and on the occurrence of puerperal infectious diseases.

Acute retention of urine by a fecal stone

Shakirov F.Z.


F., 6 years old, was admitted on 25/V 1970 from a rural district hospital for urinary retention. The boy was restless, capricious, complained of strong urge to urinate, pain in the lower abdomen. For 3 days he had difficulty in urination, delayed urination for the last 20 hours. Stools were daily, in small amounts, mushy, without pathological impurities. Temperature 37.8°. Respiratory and circulatory organs without pathology. Tongue was clean and moist. The abdomen is not swollen, soft, palpation is painful in the lower parts, over the womb the bladder is identified, the bottom of which is 4 cm below the navel. Finger examination of the rectum at the front of the rectum in the small pelvis reveals a dense tumour-like mass about the size of a woman's fist, immobile, with a smooth surface.

We examined 58 diabetic patients (38 men and 20 women aged between 20 and 60). Twelve of them had a mild form of the disease, 36 had a moderate form and 10 had a severe form. Enterokinase and alkaline phosphatase activities were studied in duodenal contents, as their activity in feces depends primarily on the functional state of the large intestine and intestinal microflora. Enterokinase activity was determined by the Shlygin method, alkaline phosphatase by the method of Fomina, Mikhlin, Shlygin. The activity of these enzymes in duodenal contents of 18 healthy persons was investigated to control the techniques.

Cardiac muscle abscesses in acute hematogenous osteomyelitis

Kharin L.V., Bizikin E.I., Kazimirova I.N., Gaynanov F.K.


Purulent involvement of the heart muscle is quite common, but abscesses are rare. Myocardial abscesses are the most common pathological finding. Pus is caused by septic emboli or by the contact passage of purulent inflammation from the pericardium and endocardium to the myocardium. The spread of the purulent process through the lymphatic tract is possible.

Markiafava-Mikeli disease

Egorov Y.P.


Although this disease has been described many times in the literature, it is not easy to diagnose and requires some focus in the clinical and laboratory examination of the patient. The difficulty of diagnosis is due to the relative rarity of the disease and the difficult differential diagnosis. For example, our clinic has treated about 22,000 patients in the last 11 years, and Markiafava-Mickeli disease has been encountered in only 2.

Urethro-oculo-synovial syndrome (Reiter's syndrome) is known to consist of purulent urethritis, purulent conjunctivitis and arthritis. The etiology of the syndrome is still an open question. Recently, a specific pathogen (virus) has been reported. Reiter's syndrome is considered by most researchers to be a variant of rheumatoid arthritis.

Resuscitation for generalised tetanus

Valitov S.S., Fishelev V.M., Mager O.N.


Specific prevention of tetanus by active and passive immunisation has been shown to be brilliantly solved. But in general the problem remains unsolved, as there is no effective therapy and in every case of general tetanus the prognosis remains doubtful. Treatment essentially begins only when toxin fixation has already taken place in the tissue structures and when the elimination of the pathogen and the free toxin produced by it can no longer interrupt the chain process of disease development. Etiological therapy plays no significant role here. The centre of gravity is transferred to pathogenetic therapy, in which an important place is given to non-specific resuscitation measures.

Oxygen inhalation under increased pressure for tetanus

Belokurov Y.N., Vodolazov Y.A., Kamenny A.N., Popov B.V., Kirsanov B.N.


Advances in recent decades in the study of the effects of increased oxygen pressure (O2P) on the body have allowed this method to be used in a number of surgical infections. The first attempt to use MPC in tetanus was successful, saving 15 out of 16 patients. Since there is still very little experience in tetanus treatment with this method, we thought it appropriate to cite our observation.
