[Hand bones disorders in vibrational disease caused by local vibration should be considered as pathogenetic characteristic of the disease].

[Article in Russian]


Opposite to the authors of the publication, that dystrophic changes in locomotory apparatus of hands and shoulders girdle could not be considered as vibration disease signs, the article authors believe that hand bone changes--tuberosity of distal finger bones, cystic transparency, local osteoporosis--could be pathogenetic signs of vibration disease, along with vascular and neurologic signs. The authors agree that periarthrosis, miofibrosis, if characterized properly through sanitary and hygienic regulations in new List of Occupational diseases, that will be put into practical medicine in the nearest future, could be considered as second occupational disease in the same patient.
