APALLIC SYNDROME

 

The monograph presents one of the fewest attempts to generalize the latest knowledge about apallic syndrome and persistent vegetative states. Unsuccessful resuscitation, new views’ representation of these states and the newest approaches to treatment are the most urgent problem of nowadays. Our six-year experience of examining 43 patients in coma and with apallic syndrome, our successful arousing some of them from that condition, bringing them to the level of self-service and to social rehabilitation show that the brain does not die but is in the state of persistent diashism. One may be sceptical about this not believing in the possibility not just long and permanent but just partial renewing effect in such cases; but we are talking about real people and their fates who had changed for the better because of the optimism and diligence of doctors and patients and their relatives themselves.

The authors are doctors–neuropathologists who are proficient in methods of functional and radial diagnostics and from our own experience of successful arousing patients from apallic syndrome they analyse the famous issues about this problem redoing them creatively.

The edition is intended for doctors-resuscitators, neurologists, neurosurgeons, pediatricians, psychiatrists, and doctors of radial and functional diagnostics, students, interns and post-graduate students of medical institutions.
