RESULTS OF COMPUTER PHONOENTEROGRAPHY IN PATIENTS WITH ACUTE APPENDICITIS AND ACUTE GYNECOLOGICAL PATHOLOGY
- phonoenterography, acute appendicitis, acute gynecological pathology
- Objective - to compare computer phonoenterography data (power spectral density) in patients with acute appendicitis and acute gynecological pathology. Material and methods. 30 patients without pathology of abdominal cavity organs (control group) and 42 patients which were admitted in surgical unit with suspicion of acute appendicitis were examined. Then the diagnosis of acute appendicitis was confirmed in 30 patients, acute gynecological pathology was revealed in the rest 20 patients. Computer phonoenterography was performed and intestine motor-evacuation function was estimated (power spectral density at range from 100 to 1750 cycle per second). Results. Power spectral density was statistically lower in patients with acute appendicitis in comparison with persons from control group; the parameters of this index were close to nought in patients with acute gynecological pathology. Power spectral density had statistically significant distinctions in patients with acute gynecological pathology and acute appendicitis. The studied index at range of 300-350, 850-900, 900-950, 950-1000 and from 1200 to 1750 cycles per second was statistically significantly higher in patients with acute gynecological pathology in comparison with patients with acute appendicitis and did nor differ from the fixed one in patients from control group. Conclusions. Power spectral density in patients with acute gynecological pathology and acute appendicitis had statistically significant distinctions at range of 1200-1750 cycles per second and this fact should be used for differential diagnosis of these states.
