fleshy leaves of this plant. The speed of its spread is truly unbelievable. After all, as cow parsnip reproduces by seeds and root layers. A seed on one stem can form up to six thousand! Therefore, if on site in the spring appeared 3.2 plants, you can safely say that next year there will be ten times more. Latin for cow parsnip is gerakleum after the famous character of Greek mythology, which is very suited to the gigantic size of this plant. During flowering hogweed stem height is 3-4 meters.

When the origin of hogweed in the late 40s Stalin was aware that cow parsnip in the U.S. and Canada is the aft plant and provides greater biomass, was instructed to begin to cultivate their culture and ours. But despite the high yield of green mass, a new fodder crop showed some disadvantages. Milk cows became bitter, and the very grass before eating it was necessary to expose the heat treatment. The use of cow-parsnip as fodder crop declined, but it was too late. Gigantic plant has spread to vast areas and became dangerous weed. Danger hogweed hogweed leaves and fruits are rich in essential oils. Touching the plants of some species of this genus can cause irritation and burns to the skin due to the fact that all plant parts contain and short enough and not much sun exposure skin area contaminated with the juice of the plant.

Typically, the affected area of skin occurs second-degree burn (blisters filled with fluid). Time allergen and a strong smell that there is already five meters from the plant. The leaves, stems and fruits of hogweed contains special substances – furokumariny. Their danger lies in the fact that they are many times the increase lighter fluid. The bubble can grow for several days, all otslaivaya large areas of skin. In extensive burns, and overall health is deteriorating. Given the mechanism of hogweed, we can conclude that is especially dangerous contact with him in the sun. To get burned sometimes enough even to go to the site overgrown with hogweed in the bright sun. How to treat burns hogweed small bubbles is better not to touch, one can impose aseptic bandage. If the bubble continues to grow, ootslaivaya top layers of skin, you should consult your doctor so that he in sterile bladder exposed. After opening the bladder and a discharge of fluid does not have to take your tire bladder, and better wound-healing bandage with an antibacterial agent. In general, the treatment of burn injuries from hogweed is the same as ordinary burns. Protect the children from this plant, do not mow it in the sun. If need be mow cow parsnip, wear tight clothing, rubber boots, and keep the juice from the spray face and eyes. If the burns were extensive cow-parsnip, be sure to contact the hospital (as in boiling water burns). If you feel the force handle yourself, use Polimedel.

Every third child has symptoms of allergy. There is concern that in 20 years, every second person will suffer from allergies. Genes or environment? Both. It turns out that allergy depends on both genetic factors and by environmental.

If one parent is allergic, then 30-40% chance that there is also problem of allergy in children. If both parents are allergolikami, the risk increases to 50-70%. If none of the parents, the likelihood of allergy in children is not more than 10-15%. How to determine allergies? Allergies can start at any time and at any age.

Data on the frequency miscarriage vary widely – from 10% to 20% due to the difficulty of diagnosis of spontaneous abortion in early pregnancy (up to 5 weeks of gestation). Thus it appears that spontaneously aborted infectious, immunologic, uterine. Successful treatment of miscarriage is possible only when a cause of the incident. Therefore, if the pregnancy ended in failure, it is important to survey women Identification of factors that led to the termination of pregnancy and their removal (at the planning stage of a subsequent pregnancy or from the very beginning of its occurrence). Genetic causes of miscarriage.

In this case there are congenital malformations of the fetus and the pregnancy is usually terminated at a very early period – up to 5 weeks (as obstetric gestation is measured from the first day of last menstruation, delayed menstruation is only a week). That should be alerted: * if you already have abortions in the early stages, the early appearance of symptoms * of threatened abortion – with minimal delay menstruation – for a few days and ineffectiveness of the treatment; What to do: * ultrasound at term 10 -11, 17 – 22, 30 – 32 weeks. * Mandatory biochemical screening (11-13, 16-17 weeks) * genetic counseling women at risk * if necessary – additional methods (eg, amniocentesis – amniotic fluid sampling for genetic studies).

Often you take patients who are in the CIS to help could not or did not count. Find out detailed opinions from leaders such as Dr. Robert Brannon by clicking through. You also take the bad? – You know, in our case is very rare to talk about completely hopeless, especially when it comes to children who are usually much more stable than adults and may suffer a more aggressive to inform about our experiences, I'd rather do it setting off the negative side, discussing in detail the complications and the chances that the patient will not survive treatment, may die, and the likelihood that the disease may return after transplantation, the potential for further treatment, if they exist. I do not like it, but it is sometimes necessary to discuss and funding sources. Only after a thorough 'chewing' particular situation, I invite patients to treatment.

If a person has at least a minimal chance, it usually wants to use, and probably rightly so. There have been cases where people have survived, the survival of which we have not hoped for. So, try to be. – I I understand that you know the fate of their foreign patients after discharge? – Of course. We follow their lives for many years, often people are willingly continue to communicate for a long time writing letters, telling about his personal life, appearing children. Some I recognize from their Russian colleagues with whom I communicate closely all the time. – Many foreigners complain that the brokerage firms with which they come, take a lot of money for services.

Ventral Series

January 6th, 2012

Seam welded to the stomach granulomas observed in 3 cases (50%), and commit them to the ventral surface of the wall have been identified. When used for hemostasis of spleen lavsan seams as well as in animals in series with catgut noted Wrapping the poles of the greater omentum. In animals, the third series of pronounced massive adhesions in the upper floor of the abdomen. Left and right lobe of the liver, wall of stomach, small and large intestines spayanny each other. The poles are wrapped in caul spleen. The animals in the implementation of hemostasis by means of hemostatic "BIATRAVM" (fourth edition) at the top half of the abdomen also occurs massive adhesions. Adhesions formed between the lobes of the liver, stomach, duodenum and form a single conglomerate with a large gland.

Pole of spleen as well as in other series wrapped omentum. The severity of adhesions in the first series was 3,3 0,3 points in the second series of 3,2 0,2 points in the third series of 3,2 0,2 points, and in the fourth series of 3,3 0, a score that does not involve a statistically significant difference (P = 0,97). Histologically, catgut fiber is oxyphilic fragmented mass, filament yarns are compact lavsan have a flat surface, homogeneous structure and does not look histological dyes. Collagen, which is the remnants of the hemostatic sponge has the form of a homogeneous mass, and the implantation means "Biatravm" found chaotic polyester filament located no signs of degradation. Environment gut connective tissue capsule with unclear boundaries and extends beyond the several fields of view, consists of loose convoluted malouporyadochennyh collagen fibers with a massive lymphocyte-macrophage infiltration. Connective tissue capsule that surrounds the polyester yarn has clear boundaries, consists of circularly arranged located long, thin collagen fibers, tightly adjacent to each other. Cellular composition is scanty, is represented by the fibroblasts, fibrocytes, macrophages, and isolated leukocytes.
