The aim of the work was to study the efficiency of ozone therapy
in IHD patients. There were treated 85 patients, 80 having stable
II-III stenocardia, 5 patients had progressive angina pectoris.
The treatment course was done in 3-4 weeks. Ozone/oxygen mixtures
were administered in intraveous drops infusions and rectal
insufflations. The patients condition was checked by clinical
signs (number of stenocadial attacks and nitroglycerine use),
tolerance to physical loads data, EKG readings, echocardioscopy.
Positive results were received in 76 patients (of 80 patients with
stable stenocardia -95 %) that were on ozone therapy. Attacks of
stenocardial pains were completely controlled in 46 out of 80
patients (58%) with stable stenocardia. The amount of pain attacks
was diminished in 50 % in 30 patients (37.5%). This enabled the
patients to low the dose of nitrates and in a number of cases to
discontinue their use. 4 patients (5 %) did not have any
improvement in their condition. Ozone therapy proved to be highly
effective in patients with progressive angina pectoris and
resulted in elimination of non-stable condition with significant
reduction of coronary insufficiency symptoms. All the patients
showed the increase to domestic and dosed physical loads.
Instrumental readings had positive dynamics. Hence, ozone therapy
can be regarded as a highly efficient method of IHD treatment.
Positive results are provided by ozone influence on antioxidant,
coagulation and oxygen-transport systems.
