Main areas of scientific research
The development of new
New medical technologies for detection of pathological changes in the brain, heart, and kidneys in patients with various forms of hypertension were developed based on MRI, ultrasound, and biochemical methods. New methods for increase of the efficacy of hypotensive therapy were proposed; new approaches to endovascular treatment in patients with resistant form of diseases were developed.
Specifics of the effects of beta-blockers, calcium antagonists, and
Significant differences between the characteristics of hypotensive effects of
Utility model of the device allowing for dose use of oxygen and carbon dioxide inhalation aimed at the assessment of cerebral circulation autoregulation parameters was developed. The types of abnormalities in cerebral vascular reserve in hypertensive patients varying in degree of diseases and in changes of
To increase the efficacy of transcatheter treatment of resistant hypertension, the original method of renal denervation with redistribution of the application to the distal part of the renal arterial trunk and segmental branches of the renal artery was developed, which significantly increased hypotensive and organoprotective effects of the intervention. New medical technologies for assessment of the results of drug therapy and
Annually, over 1000 patients with various forms of hypertension including patients with hypertension resistant to therapy with hypotensive drugs are examined in the department. The methods for
Many years of clinical and scientific experience, high professionalism of employees, and the use of state-
