KIS Éva, NYITRAI Anna, VÁRKONYI Ildikó, BÁRTFAI Katalin, GYÖRKE Tamás, MÁTTYUS István, VEREBÉLY Tibor

[INTRODUCTION - The authors reviewed their experience after pyeloplasty in infants, according to the follow-up results of ultrasound and nuclear renography. PATIENTS AND METHODS - During the period 1988-2001 184 infants underwent pyeloplasty for ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction. Patients (n=91) with unilateral UPJ obstruction and normal contralateral kidney were included in this study. Patients ages at surgery were between 1 day-36 months. Preoperative evaluation included ultrasound examinations and diuretic renograms. Follow-up ultrasound examinations were done after 3, 6, 12 months, later yearly. Depending on the result of the ultrasound examination isotope scan were done. RESULTS - The pelviureteric obstruction were detected prenatally at 65 cases (71%). Preoperative ultrasound revealed grade 3-4 pyelocaliectasis in all patients. All patients had obstruction on preoperative renography, nine kidneys had no function, in 37 cases (41%) hydronephrotic kidneys had diminished function. Nine patients underwent nephrectomy because of non-functioning kidney. Eighty two infants underwent pyeloplasty. Grade of hydronephrosis improved in 56% of kidneys and dilatation was the same one year after pyeloplasty in 44% of kidneys. Five years after pyeloplasty 91% of kidneys, after eight years 97% of hydronephrosis improved or cured. Postoperative renography showed improvement in drainage in all preoperatively obstructed kidneys. The renal function improved only in 22% of cases at the end of the first postoperative year, and no further improvement were detected later on. CONCLUSION - Pyeloplasty in infant ages significantly cured the drainage early after surgery. The resolution of hydronephrosis is relatively slow, but after eight years dilatation cured or improved in most of the affected kidneys. Improvement of the renal function was detected only in small part of the cases.]

[Cheirospondyloenchondromatosis]

IGNYS Anna, MALGORZATA Krajewska-Walasek, MARIKOVA Olga, IVO Marik, KAZIMIERZ Kozlowski

[The term of cheirospondyloenchondromatosis (CHE) was coined by Spranger et al. This generalised, distinctive form of enchondromatosis is characterised by mild to moderate dwarfism, short hands and feet with beaded fingers, prominent large joints and frequently mental deficiency. Major radiographic features include generalised mild platyspondyly, generalised enchondromatosis with marked involvement of hands and feet and small ilia with eroded crests and acetabular roofs. We report three patients with this rare, severe form of enchondromatosis and stress some differences between our patients and the classical description of Spranger et al.]

[Hungarian and international results in compliance of antiporotic treatment]

BORS Katalin, HORVÁTH CSABA

[The studies investigate the compliance of treatment showed that the compliance is one of the most important factor which influence the success of an otherwise effective treatment. Not only the patients, but also the doctors and nurses are responsible for the unsuccessful treatment. Our article shortly review Hungarian and international data about the compliance of antiporotic treatment and summarises a study which we plan to achieve in the near future.]

[CARDIOVASCULAR PREVENTION OPPORTUNITIES OF RISK REDUCTION, 2010]

NAGY András Csaba

[10 years of experience following the millennium has confirmed again that data on long term cardiovascular morbidity and mortality can be influenced by effective prevention most substantially. Growing body of knowledge and experience in the field of modern cardiovascular prevention is available, but novel and novel milestone studies have been published leading to updating of guidelines, however, we cannot be satisfied with the results. Evidence suggest that despite recent efforts, Hungarian cardiovascular morbidity and mortality has not been reduced significantly and except for some success - acute ST elevation myocardial infarction care in accordance with the European standard - we are behind the other EU countries in cardiovascular mortality of the active (age 30-65 years) age group. Recently several interesting contradiction has been published in the field of prevention, like the effectiveness of aspirin as primer prevention, which changes our common prevention conception. Data have to be also addressed, which can explain the controversial results from a different point of view. Now we are talking about the results of REALITY study, which highlight not only the noncompliance of the patient but that of the physician as well.]
