Aim. To study the specifics of follow-up, instrumental and laboratory assessment of patients with a history of acute cerebrovascular accident (ACVA), taking cardiovascular comorbidity into account. Material and methods. Within the outpatient phase of the REGION study, a register of patients with a history of ACVA of any remoteness (ACVA-AR registry, n=511), and the register of patients who had visited the outpatient clinic for the first time after cerebral stroke (ACVA-FV, n=475) were organized. The analysis of specifics of outpatient follow-up of patients during the last 12 months prior to the reference visit in the ACVA-AR registry and in the first 6 months after the reference visit in the ACVA-FV registry, depending on diagnosed concomitant cardiovascular diseases and their complications, conditions and the fact of being under dispensary observation was done. Results. During the analyzed period of follow-up in the outpatient clinic, the patients were most often examined by district therapeutists (ACVA-AR - 81.4%, ACVA-FV - 91.6%). Patients in the ACVA-AR registry had a statistically significantly higher incidence of electrocardiography, echocardiography and blood creatinine and total cholesterol results in patients with a history of myocardial infarction comparing to those who hadn’t myocardial infarction, as well as in a subset of patients who visited the clinic in comparison with those who were observed at home. Patients of the ACVA-FV registry were statistically significantly more often examined by doctors and had basic laboratory and instrumental examination methods done (except echocardiography) compared to those who were observed at home. The frequency of medical examinations, as well as the performance of instrumental and laboratory methods, was statistically significantly higher in the ACVA-FV register as a whole and in all analyzed groups comparing to the ACVA-AR registry, except for a subgroup of patients with a history of ACVA. Сonclusion. The quality of the examination of patients with a history of ACVA in the outpatient practice is inadequate; nevertheless, a comparison of the results of the ACVA-AR and ACVA-FV registers allows one to speak of its significant positive dynamics over the period of 2.3 years, which separated the reference visits in these registers.

78 patients with acute ischemic stroke in the first 5 days of the disease и 20 patients with chronic cerebrovascular diseases - dyscirculatory encephalopathy and residual stage of ischemic stroke, had examined with cardiorespiratory monitoring. Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) was detected in 88% of patients with ischemic stroke, including obstructive (87% of patients) and central (13% of patients) type. In half of the stroke patients, SDB was moderate and severe. The development of central sleep apnea is associated with the severity of acute neurologic symptoms.

Latent autoimmune diabetes - a diabetes mellitus 1,5 type?

Khachaturyan N.E.


Currently, one of the variants of the current autoimmune diabetes mellitus is widely studied - it is a slowly progressing autoimmune diabetes of adults (latent autoimmune diabetes of adults, LADA). It is accompanied by an atypical clinical picture for both classical type 1 diabetes mellitus and type 2. Despite the presence of positive autoantibodies, LADA is characterized by a slow rate of autoimmune destruction, and therefore the need for insulin therapy does not appear immediately. In the proposed article, we tried to figure out which type of sugar diabetes by its course LADA is closer. Also, the role of self-monitoring of glycemia in patients with LADA is highlighted
