Combined therapy of interstitial cystitis using the “Aeltis-Synchro-02-Iarilo” device.
[Article in Russian]
Kalinina SN, Molchanov AV, Rutskaia NS.
Multiple modality therapy of interstitial cystitis (IC)–the disease characterized by nicturia, pelvic pains, imperative pollakiuria–is considered. As IC nature is not well known, its treatment remains empiric. Among the underlying causes, most probable are autoimmune, allergic, infectious, neurological, vascular. Therefore, the treatment should be multi-modality. Most usable now is combined chemotherapy. Perspective is also IC treatment with medicines in combination with physiotherapy (electromagnetolaser AELTIS-SYNCHRO-02-YARILO”). Endovesical electrophoresis can be also applied.

The therapeutic potential of magnetic energy has been a subject of long-standing interest within both conventional and alternative medical practice. Numerous devices using magnetic fields, ranging from the dubious to truly innovative, have claimed a wide variety of clinical benefits. For gynecologists involved with the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor and bladder dysfunction, magnetic stimulation of the sacral nerve roots and peripheral nerves continues to evolve as a noninvasive treatment alternative. The conduction characteristics of magnetic energy confer several practical advantages for its use. This article reviews the use of electromagnetic stimulation for treatment of common urogynecologic conditions, and provides an historical overview of the therapeutic application of electromagnetic energy.

Magnetic-laser therapy in inflammatory and posttraumatic lesions of the urinary system.
[Article in Russian]
Loran OB, Kaprin AD, Gazimagomedov GA.
The authors discuss disputable problem of renal and ureteral tissue after trauma or inflammation. These cause irreversible morphological changes in the tissue. Poor results of the standard therapy urged the authors to try magnetic-laser therapy in urological clinic. The technique has been developed on experimental animal models. The resultant morphological characteristics of ureteral wall and parenchyma support the validity of magnetic-laser therapy in urological practice.

Electrochemical therapy of pelvic pain: effects of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) on tissue trauma.

Unusually effective and long-lasting relief of pelvic pain of gynaecological origin has been obtained consistently by short exposures of affected areas to the application of a magnetic induction device producing short, sharp, magnetic-field pulses of a minimal amplitude to initiate the electrochemical phenomenon of electroporation within a 25 cm2 focal area. Treatments are short, fasting-acting, economical and in many instances have obviated surgery. This report describes typical cases such as dysmenorrhoea, endometriosis, ruptured ovarian cyst, acute lower urinary tract infection, post-operative haematoma, and persistent dyspareunia in which pulsed magnetic field treatment has not, in most cases, been supplemented by analgesic medication. Of 17 female patients presenting with a total of 20 episodes of pelvic pain, of which 11 episodes were acute, seven chronic and two acute as well as chronic, 16 patients representing 18 episodes (90%) experienced marked, even dramatic relief, while two patients representing two episodes reported less than complete pain relief.
