The Department of Neurology No. 2 of NMAPE is engaged in research to global standards, through teaching courses, writing papers, taking part in international conferences and forums.
Thereby, studying compensatory and adaptive mechanisms of the nervous system in pathology has been conducted at the Department.
In the realm of the subject mentioned above as part of the Department's scholarly endeavor, we examine in depth the nervous system disorders in renal pathology.
The aim of the study is to improve the diagnosis the nervous system affection in renal pathology, based on the data from the refined pathogenetic and pathophysiological mechanisms, subsequent to the results of the comprehensive clinical and paraclinical study.
Today we study clinical and paraclinical parameters of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous system in patients with renal pathology as well as clinical and paraclinical parameters of renal function in patients with neurological pathology.
The staff members hope that studying clinical and neurological, autonomic, neuropsychological and laboratory parameters in patients with kidney disease will help clarify both the possible involvement of the nervous system in pathological processes in the kidneys and the pathogenetic and prognostic significance of renal pathology in developing the nervous system secondary disorders.
In view of this, the doctoral thesis "The Nervous System Affection in Renal Pathology", performed by PhD in Medicine, Associate Professor O. M. Kononets (the academic adviser is Olena V. Tkachenko, Head of the Department of Neurology No. 2, NMAPE, MD, Dr. Sc., Full Professor) was approved by the Fellows of NMAPE's Academic Senate.
