Nowadays, the electronic health care is changing the medical service provision character. The objective of the work is to assess the possibility and effectiveness of using e-health resources for disease prevention and promotion of a healthy lifestyle. The Healthadvice mobile application and the www.healthadvice.by Internet site were designed to prevent diseases and promote healthy lifestyle. The study participants had used the electronic resources for three months after that the preventive measures effectiveness was evaluated.

Current understanding concerning the refeeding syndrome which occur against severe electrolyte and metabolic disorders appearing after refeeding people having starved or malnourished for a long period is presented. Risk factors, prevention actions, and feeding regimens for patients with this syndrome are given. A clinical case of the refeeding syndrome is presented.
FORECASTING TOTAL NUMBER OF STROKES, HEART ATTACKS AND LETHAL OUTCOMES IN PATIENTS WITH ARTERIAL HYPERTENSION
Objective. To develop a method for medium-term forecasting of the total number of strokes, myocardial infarctions, and fatal outcomes in patients with arterial hypertension, grade II (risk 2-3) taking into account the assessment of the heart rate variability and turbulence, the left atrial, and the left ventricular parameters.
FEMORAL HEAD NECROSIS: MOLECULAR-IMMUNOLOGICAL RESEARCH METHODS FOR EFFECTIVE HIP PRESERVING TREATMENT AND HIP ARTHROPLASTY
Objective. To identify the spectrum of possible pathogens and antibodies to them in the biological fluids and hip joint structures of adult patients with osteonecrosis of the femoral head. Materials and methods. Laboratory examinations of 90 patients with osteonecrosis of the femoral head were carried out. The blood serum, synovial fluid, synovial membrane, articular cartilage of the femoral head were studied using enzyme-linked immunoassay, polymerase chain reaction, electron microscopy.
Objective. To carry out a comparative evaluation of the ultrasound diagnosis results and to assess their value in diagnosing coronary heart disease (CHD) in patients with type 2 diabetes.
CLINICAL VALUE OF BIOLOGICAL MARKERS FOR DIAGNOSING INVASIVE MYCOSIS IN PATIENTS SUFFERING FROM TUMOROUS DISEASES OF HEMATOPOIETIC TISSUES
Objective. To assess the diagnostic characteristics of sepsis biological markers combinations for early diagnosis of invasive mycosis in immunocompromised patients.
SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY IN EVALUATION OF SURFACE TISSUE REACTIONS USED FOR SELECTING TITANIUM IMPLANTS FOR ORBIT RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY
Scanning electron microscopy of titanium implant samples implanted into the back soft tissues of small laboratory animals (rats) was performed. The perforated and non-perforated plate-form implants were evaluated. The most intensive integration processes were observed in the perforated titanium plates. Scanning electron microscopy should be included into the biomedical research process as one of the main methods to confirm the integration processes between tissue and titanium implant.
Ключевые слова: рак единственной почки, местный рецидив, отдаленные метастазы, безрецидивная выживаемость, факторы прогноза. Objective. Analysis of recurrence-free survival of patients with the solitary kidney malignancies exposed to a surgical interference. Development of a prognostic classification determining the risk of the tumorous process recurrence by the preoperative data.
RADIOLOGICAL ENDOVASCULAR EMBOLIZATION OF SMALL PELVIS ARTERIES IN PATIENTS WITH COMPLICATED UTERINE CERVIX CANCER
Objective. To analyze the efficacy of radiological endovascular embolization of small pelvis arteries in patients with locally advanced and recurrent uterine cervix cancer (UCC) complicated with hemorrhage. Materials and methods. Eighty one patients were included in the study including 68 (84%) primary patients with locally advanced UCC and 13 (16%) subjects with UCC recurrences underwent radiological endovascular occlusion of small pelvis arteries for bleeding from a cervical tumor.
