The safety and cost effective non-invasive method to assess the blood pressure and modulate the treatment plan accordingly is to utilise the ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and Holter Electrocardiography in daily use in patients with hypertension.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Aim:</em></strong><em> To examine the functional state of cardiovascular system and possible predictive value of the daily application of the combined method of arterial blood pressure monitoring and ECG monitoring in hypertensive patients at different levels of the disease progression.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Methods and materials: </em></strong><em>We examined 37 patients with AH without any clinical significant pathology were included in the first group and 32 hypertensive patients with a history of myocardial infarction (MI) in the second group. The average age of participants in this study was 59,02±2,18 years. All patients underwent a comprehensive examination of the functional state of the cardiovascular system using the combined ECG and arterial BP monitoring validated device «CardiosensBP» XAI-MEDICA (Ukraine). The statistical data was processed using </em><em>«STATISTICA® for Windows 6.0</em><em>» (StatSoft Inc., #AXXR712D833214FAN5).</em></p> <p><strong><em>Results:</em></strong><em> The hypertensive state is characterized by an excess of the target values ??of systemic blood pressure: the daily mean values ??of systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) were higher at 6,93% (P&lt;0,05) and 5,68% (P&lt;0,01) respectively in both groups. Indicators of pressure increase and morning surge(MS) are significant in patients of the second clinical group exclusively SBP, namely: the index of time (IT) - by 24,68% (P&lt;0,01), the index of measurements (IM) - by 16,84% (P&lt;0,05), MS - by 31,98% (P&lt;0,01).</em></p> <p><strong><em>Conclusions:</em></strong><em> The practice of application of daily arterial blood pressure and ECG monitoring has an important prognostic value in cardiovascular system functional status estimation and also enables the physician in optimising the treatment plan accordingly.</em></p> 2018-08-01T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## A RARE CAUSE OF SMALL BOWEL OBSTRUCTION: GALL STONE ILEUS – A RADIOLOGICAL CASE REPORT WITH REVIEW OF LITERATURE 2018-08-20T05:51:30+00:00 Abhishek Mishra*, Sunit Chand, Satya Prakash Tripathi, Bharat Jani <p><em>Small bowel obstruction (SBO) is a common clinical condition. The effective management depends on an early and accurate diagnosis. Gall stone ileus is a rare cause of mechanical small bowel obstruction and contributes to 1-4% of all cases of mechanical small bowel obstruction. The incidence is typically seen in elderly females. The diagnosis is often difficult and a previous history of gall stone disease helps in reaching the correct diagnosis. Surgical management is the preferred modality for treatment. We are reporting a case of Gallstone ileus diagnosed recently in our hospital. A 54 year old elderly female presented with sudden onset abdominal pain with recurrent vomiting for one day. A&nbsp; Plain radiograph of abdomen done in Emergency department suggested findings of small bowel obstruction. It was followed by an urgent ultrasound of abdomen which showed collapsed Gall bladder, pneumobilia and dilated non-peristaltic small bowel loops. Finally a contrast enhanced CT scan of abdomen was done and it showed air within in the biliary tree and within the collapsed Gall bladder. The Small bowel loops were dilated to the upper border of a large radiolucent intraluminal filling defect in the distal ileum. It also showed loss of clear interface between Gall bladder and second part of duodenum suggesting a possibility of Cholecystoenteric fistula. The patient underwent an urgent laparotomy with enterolithotomy. A 35 x 35mm calculus was impacted in the distal ileum. A fistulous communication was noticed between Gall bladder and the second part of duodenum which was repaired along with cholecystectomy.&nbsp;&nbsp; </em></p> 2018-08-20T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
