[The use of pulsed and continuous UHF electrical fields in the rehabilitation of patients with the Guillain-Barré syndrome and other peripheral myelinopathies].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

120 patients with Guillain-Barre syndrome and other peripheral myelinopathies were randomly assigned to three treatment groups. One of the group was exposed to pulsed high frequency electric field (47 patients), the other group to continuous current (52 patients), and the third group received the imitation of therapy (21 patients). Pulsed current therapy caused the greatest regress of the neurological deficit (45 from 47 cases). The electroneuromyography of paretic limbs nerves showed that the acceleration of remyelinization process turn to be the background of pulsed high frequency electric field medical action. Both the rheovasography and isotope muscle flow measurements did not confirm the hypothesis about preferential mediation of the healing potency of pulsed short wave diathermy through vascular mechanism. It was suggested the direct influence of pulsed short wave diathermy on protein synthesis process in the spinal alpha-motoneurone and myocyte.
