Informativeness of electropunctural diagnosis by Y. Nacatani in liver diseases diagnostics

The progress of pathological processes in liver both in somatic, and in infectious diseases can develop without visible clinical aspects. Diagnostics and differential diagnostics of liver diseases require to use of difficult and invasive methods of research. It is known that the Nacatani test can reveal a pathology which cannot be clinically tested.

The purpose of this research is to improve diagnostics and differential diagnostics of liver diseases with Nacatani test.

188 patients with liver diseases at the age of 3 – 14 years old and 36 healthy children have been examined. Standard clinical and biochemical researches were carried out for all patients. The diagnosis was confirmed by detection of specific immunological markers of acute hepatitis. Virus hepatitis A was detected in 118, virus hepatitis B – in 51 patients and Gilbert syndrome – in 5 cases, pathology of bile ducts – in 14 cases.

We have revealed that at the initial stage of illness the patients with various clinical versions virus hepatitis have the typical diagrams of electroconductivity due to significant change of electroconduction of representative zones, however, the most informative for diagnostics virus hepatitis are values of symmetrical zones F2, F3, F5, F6.

Such changes of electroconduction are not detected in children with other liver diseases and healthy children. This allows us to offer to use the Nacatani test for diagnostics and differential diagnostics of virus hepatitis.
