The applying of millimeter-wave electromagnetic emission (EHF-therapy) is an effective method for various age-related pathologies treatment, among other cardio-vascular diseases. During the EHF-emission of aging human endothelial cell cultures it was obtained changing of NO-synthase (eNOS), endothelin-1, angiotensin-2 and vasopressin expression dependence of irradiation exposition. These data have shown that EHF-emission has activated endothelium functional activity, which can play the important role to search for approaches to treatment of arterial hypertension and atherosclerosis.

Regenerative medicine for patients with peripheral atherosclerosis attracts considerable attention around the world. However, ethical problems persist in gene therapy. This study evaluates the effect of alterative magnetic stimulation on peripheral circulation. The effect of magnetic stimulation as a medical treatment was examined using a thermograph for 11 healthy volunteers. The thermograph was used to measure the rise in skin temperature. The experimental results suggested an improvement in the peripheral circulation. The results of our study suggest the effectiveness of alternative magnetic stimulation on atherosclerosis. We intend to extend our study in order to establish a methodology for regenerative medical treatment for patients with peripheral atherosclerosis. Further, we wish to advance the current research in the field of angiogenesis.

Recovery processes in the cerebral cortex, myocardium and thymus of rats with experimental atherosclerosis exposed to low-frequency electromagnetic fields on the head.

Studies of animals with experimental sclerosis has shown that a course of 10 procedures of alternative magnetic field (AMF) (50 Hz, 30 mT, 3 min daily) promotes partial recovery of the lipid spectrum and corrects vasomotor-metabolic disturbances in the cerebral cortex, myocardium and thymus caused by atherosclerosis. Combination of AMF with constant magnetic field in the same regime and location does not produce a hypolipidemic effect in atherosclerotic animals and this, in combination with increased vascular permeability may aggravate the condition. Activated microcirculation, antioxidant and antiproteinase effects in activation of biosynthetic processes in the cerebral cortex reflect inhibition in the CNS in this combined effect and create conditions for a hypotensive effect.

The combined action of infrared radiation and permanent and alternating magnetic fields in experimental atherosclerosis.

Paravertebral exposure to infrared radiation (0.87 micron, 5 mW) and permanent magnetic field in combination with one- and two-semiperiodic alternative magnetic fields (50 Hz, 15-30 mT) was studied in respect to the action on adaptive reactions in animals with experimental atherosclerosis. Complex consisting of infrared radiation, permanent magnetic field and one-semiperiodic pulse alternative magnetic field was most effective in restoration of vasomotor-metabolic and immune disturbances accompanying development of atherosclerosis.

The potentials of laser and electromagnetic-laser therapy in the treatment of patients with arteriosclerosis obliterans of the vessels of the lower extremities.

[Article in Russian]

Galimzianov FV.

A comparative analysis of the laser and electromagnetic laser therapy was performed in the complex treatment of patients with obliterating atherosclerosis of the lower extremity vessels. Laser treatment exerts a therapeutic effect related with its influence upon microcirculation. The effectiveness of complex treatment becomes higher when using a combination of laser therapy with the impulse electromagnetic therapy of complex modulation at the expense of improvement of the regional blood circulation in all links of the vasculature.

The paper presents the results of treatment received by 60 patients suffering from lower limb vascular obliteration stage IIA-III. The treatment involved combined use of magnetic field and laser irradiation. Peripheral circulation and central hemodynamics were evaluated rheographically and using ultrasound Doppler sphygmomanometry. Combined application of the above two modalities produced a greater effect on central hemodynamics compared to them introduced alone.

The investigators have developed a polymagnetic system “Avrora-MK-01” employing running impulse magnetic field to treat diseases of the leg vessels by the action on peripheral capillary bed. At a pregangrene stage a positive effect on peripheral capillaries was achieved in 75-82% of the patients treated.

Outpatient electromagnetic therapy combined with hyperbaric oxygenation in arterial occlusive diseases.

[Article in Russian]

Reut NI, Kononova TI.

The authors first applied hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) in the outpatient clinic in 1968. Barotherapy was conducted in 107 outpatients whose ages ranged from 27 to 80 years; they had various stages of the disease of 5- to 20-year history. In 70 patients treated for obliterating diseases of the vessels by HBO in a complex with magnetotherapy by means of magnetophors, the remission lasted 1-2 years; patients treated by HBO alone had a 3-8 month remission. A prolonged positive effect was produced in 64 patients. The suggested effective and safe method is an additional one to the existing means of treating this serious and progressive disease, which can be applied successfully in outpatient clinics.
