The invention relates to medicine, namely physiotherapy, Pediatrics, neuro-rehabilitation, neurology, and can be used for the treatment of children at the age from 1 year to 14 years with perinatal encephalopathy and its consequences in the form of syndromes residual organic brain damage.

There is a method of treatment of encephalopathy in children with impaired motor function due to perinatal brain by magnetic field inductance 35 MT and a frequency of 10 Hz on the cervical and lumbar area for 5-10 min course of 8-10 treatments (Gurova POSTGRADUATE, Babin L.M. efficiency of the dynamic magnetic therapy with a frequency of 10 Hz modulations in the complex of sanatorium-resort rehabilitation of children with cerebral palsy // Transcranial magnetic therapy / Collection of articles edited by G.N. Ponomarenko, N. Bolotova, Y.M. Raigorodsky. - Saratov: Publishing House. Sarat. the honey. Univ. - 2008. - 74-82.). However, the method is not sufficiently effective for the correction of metabolic disorders of the brain and does not allow you to activate cognitive functions, because there is no directional stimulation of neuronal excitability and axonal conduction brain.

There is a method of treatment of encephalopathy in children, including magnetic stimulation of high-intensity magnetic field amplitude of the magnetic induction on the 3,0 T, frequency of 0.1-0.2 Hz affected cortical centers and the spinal roots and nerves on the side of denervation 1-2 min and magnetic and electrical stimulation of sinusoidal modulated current nervous and neuromuscular apparatus denervated organ (Tyszkiewicz YEAR, Bersnev VP, Margolin EG, Skoromets A.A., Nikitin V.V. method for the treatment of patients with disorders of motor, sensory and speech functions due to organic lesions of the nervous system: guidelines. - SPb., 1995. - 16 S.) However, high-intensity transcranial magnetic stimulation can provoke the formation of epileptic syndrome (Hufnagel A., Elger C.E., Durwen H.F., Boker D.K., Entzian W. Activation of the Epileptic Focus by Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation of the Human Brain //Ann. Neurol. - 1990. - N27. - P.49-60). The method is insufficient for the correction of metabolic disorders of the brain.

Closest to the claimed is a method of treatment of encephalopathy in children (Kravtsov SCI, Shevchenko C.V. Dysfunction nonspecific systems of the brain in absansnyh epileptic seizures in children and the possibility of its correction laser radiation // Journal of Neurology of the Urals and Siberia. - 1999. No. 9. - P.40-44.), adopted for the prototype. Effect of low-intensity laser radiation (NEELY) a wavelength of 0.98 μm, 10 mW and the magnetic field inductance 10 MT at the region of the cervical sympathetic nodes on the both sides for 2 minutes through the emitter area of 2.5 cm 2a course of 6 treatments under EEG control. The method aims at reducing epileptic activity of the brain due to correction of autonomic disorders.

However, the prototype is not effective enough and does not provide activation of cognitive functions, as:

- the influence of permanent magnetic field on the peripheral autonomic patterns cannot create the effect of a targeted stimulation of neuronal excitability and axonal conduction brain;

- the effect of LLLT on the peripheral autonomic patterns is not sufficient for full activation of the metabolism of the brain.

The invention is directed to a method of treatment of encephalopathy in children that enhance the effectiveness of treatment due to the activation of cognitive functions.

This technical result in the implementation of the invention is achieved in that in the known method for the treatment of encephalopathy in children by magnetic field and NEELY infrared range under EEG control, the peculiarity lies in the fact that the impact traveling magnetic field in a continuous mode inductive 6-40 MT, 50 Hz synchronously with the laser radiation wavelength of 0.85 to 0.9 μm, 50 Hz, with a capacity of 3.5 to 5 mW, influence simultaneously bitemporal and along the vertebral column at the level of C1-L1, procedure duration 10-12 min, ku is som 10 daily procedures.

Traveling magnetic field allows you to activate neuronal axonal excitability and conductivity of the brain significantly more than permanent, due to transcranial direct impact. Activated not only the neurons of the cerebral cortex of the brain, but the median subcortically-brain structures by combining stimulating action from located opposite to each other, magnetic inductors. Physiology diffuse effects on the brain avoids amplification foci of epileptiform activity. Frequency 50 Hz dermal exposure is optimal to activate areas of the brain responsible for memory (N.P. Bekhtereva Healthy and diseased human brain. - L.: Nauka, 1980. - S.). Traveling magnetic field allows you to correct venous blood flow to the brain (Matyash mathematical SCIENCES. Electrical stimulation and magnetic-laser therapy in rehabilitation of patients with cerebral venous dystopian in traumatic encephalopathy // II international Congress of Rehabilitation medicine and rehabilitation. - M, September 20-21, 2005).

LLLT activates the metabolism and blood flow to the brain and spinal cord, as well as the metabolic processes in the cerebrospinal fluid indirectly through direct laser irradiation on blood vessels pools external carotid arteries and tissues of the spine. infrakrasnoe NEELY wavelength of 0.85-0.9 µm, 70% is reflected and absorbed by the soft tissues of the skull and cranial bones (Ohshiro T. Low Reactive-Level Laser Therapy. - 1991. - 264 p.), what prevents possible negative reaction of the brain in response to direct laser irradiation. Neurotransmi NEELY is seen mainly in glial structures than is provided by activation of the memory, as the most important cognitive functions, carriers which are neuroglial populations of the brain.

Diffuse effects on the Central nervous system traveling magnetic field and NEELY contributes to the activation and development of memory and speech, brain software which is distributed on the cortical-subcortical brain structures (N.P. Bekhtereva Healthy and diseased human brain. - L.: Nauka, 1980. - S-171.). Magnetic and laser effect on the projection of the spinal cord contributes to the activation neuroaxonal ways motor and sensory analyzers, vegetative structures, in particular the sympathetic chain. Improving the quality and dynamics of the cerebrospinal fluid, the functioning of life support systems through segmental levels of regulation, which provides improved metabolism of the brain and the whole body.

The method is as follows.

Directly before treatment perform EEG study, including traditional EEG with a quantitative assessment of brain biorhythms different ranges, evoked potentials - auditory, visual, somatosensory, cognit the ate.

Carry out the procedure of magnitolazeroterapii. The child laid on the couch on his stomach. The child's face slightly turned to the side to free breathing. Influence simultaneously bitemporal and along the vertebral column at the level of C1-L1 traveling magnetic field and infrared LLLT in synchronous mode. Affected by varying magnetic field in a continuous mode with 50 Hz frequency, inductance 6-40 MT. Synchronously impact NEELY wavelength of 0.85 to 0.9 μm, a pulse duration of 100±50 NS, 50 Hz (carrier frequency 1500 Hz) and a capacity of 3.5 to 5 mW (pulse 10-30). The exposure parameters depending on the age of the children is shown in table 1.

34-40 MTL5 mW

The procedure lasts 10-12 minutes. Treatment includes 10 daily procedures.

Control EEG study (quantitative EEG, evoked potentials) perform directly after treatment, in the near-and long-term follow-up. In the presence of positive clinical and EEG characteristics, repeat the treatment after 6-12 months. In the absence of positive dynamics or expression of markers of negative reactions, which reflects the depletion of the protective reactions of the brain, courses magnitolazeroterapii not repeat.

Way passed clinical trials in the clinic IMC wounds in the treatment of 38 children aged from 1 year to 14 years with perinatal encephalopathy and its consequences in the form of syndromes residual organic brain damage. Treatment received 22 boys and 16 girls. Psychomotor development was observed in 25 children, moderate in two, moderate in 10 and expressed in 13 children. Delayed speech or mental development was diagnosed in 13 children - moderate in three, moderate in two, and severe in 8 children. The clinical picture was observed rapid exhaustion when switching attention, emotional dullness, passive behavior or hyperactivity, lower or about the absence of self-help skills, the difficulty in training and implementation of these new skills (Biking, drawing, and others). Speech disturbances in the form of Allie, depletion of speech, dysarthria was varieeruvusi depending on the age and extent of brain lesions. The motor activity was fatigue and motor disinhibition at a moderate developmental delay, hemiparesis 2-3 points with a limit of motor skills with moderate and tetraparesis 1-2,5 points to lack of motor skills in severe delays. Spasticity ranged from 1 to 4 points. Occurred vegetative dystonia in all patients, as expressed by the delay - salivation on the background of Hyper - or hypohidrosis.

MRI and PET studies indicated cystic atrophic changes of the brain, asymmetric hydrocephalus, depletion corticospinal and corticothalamic tracts, hypoplasia of the corpus callosum, diffuse or local hypometabolism of glucose. When USDG study determined the decrease of perfusion, venous Disgaea, constrictive-angiospastic type of change vessels, reducing gazokondensatnogo reserve varying degrees.

EEG study revealed disruption of brain rhythms expressed hyperactivity stem structures, diffuse disorders of the ascending thalamocortical influences at a moderate degree and delay. When the average degree was determined deformation and disruption of the spatial-zonal distribution of the background rhythm of the brain, pronounced hemispheric asymmetry, peismekery epileptiform activity. In severe delay in the picture EEG observed similar changes, as well as diffuse changes of bioelectric activity of brain epileptiform type flash nonspecific medlennovolnovoj activity in theta and Delta ranges. Investigation of induced auditory, visual and somatosensory potentials stated reduction in speed and amplitude of the potentials and longer latency period. Analysis of cognitive evoked potentials showed a decrease in the speed of cognitive processes by presenting stimuli of different characteristics.

All children underwent a course of magnitolazeroterapii according to the proposed method. Used physiotherapeutic apparatus for magnetic and infrared led therapy "TRANSRADIO" (000 "TRIM", Saratov) with the size of the emitters (in mm)are presented in table 2.

Immediately after treatment, most patients had significant improvement or improvement, which was to increase tolerance to stress, reducing isdomainmaster, low education, lack of seizures. what was relieves the tendency to expand the number of sounds and sound combinations, stabilization of articulation, strengthening global read, the extra syllables and words. Improved circadian rhythm of sleep and wakefulness, the children became more calm and collected. In paretic extremities decreased spasticity by 1-2 points and increased locomotor activity at 0.5 points, improved foncia, decreased salivation. In children with severe developmental delay was begun to show elements of skills retention head tracking eyes, hold objects at hand, ability to sit, stand, walk. With average and moderate delay in children stabilized communication skills and self-service, they were more than adequate. Watched the relief of chronic headache, which was before treatment, 2 children, improving emotional tone, reducing symptoms of hyperactivity. Significant improvement noted in 22 (57.9 per cent) of children improved in 13 (34.2 per cent), unchanged in three (7,9%).

According to PAT had a reduction in the degree of hypometabolism of glucose. When USDG study revealed improvement in perfusion due to edema angiospastic reactions, increase gazokondensatnogo reserve.

In the EEG was a decrease diffuse changes, the manifestation of focal changes, decreased tension and diffusion bit forms, improved modality of the basic rhythm. There was an increase / min net and holding and amplitude of auditory, visual and somatosensory evoked potentials, shortening their latent period. In some cases, was a manifestation missing before treatment cortical components of somatosensory evoked potentials, reflecting the recovery thalamocortical. Registered increase in the rate of cognitive evoked potentials.

Positive dynamics in the form of tempo acceleration of a child's development continued in the coming months, the seizures were not. The pace of development was somewhat slower in 6-12 months. After repeated courses of magnitolazeroterapii under the proposed method was again observed positive dynamics in the form of tempo acceleration of development. In the picture EEG was trend toward normalization of bioelectrical activity of the brain. It was noted reduced intensity and prevalence medlennovolnovoj and epileptiform activity, stability, basic rhythm and ordering rhythm of the brain.

Examples of extracts from the histories.

Example 1. Patient D., aged 5, was on rehabilitation in the clinic IMC RAS 14.11.2011 on 06.12.2011. Diagnosis: effects of perinatal encephalopathy. Psychomotor development medium. Neuropsychological examination showed rapid exhaustion, otvlekaemost, hyperactivity, understanding speech is below normal, the dictionary distortion words, considerable difficulty oral praxis on particella and prakticheskoe type (difficulty moving the tongue, chewing). The child knew hygiene skills, drew and saw the pictures. Data testified to the mental retardation with impaired speech praxis - the combination of dysarthria with systemic underdevelopment of speech functions. In neurological status revealed left-sided cerebral spastic hemiparesis 2.5-3 points, spasticity 2 points, convergent strabismus. MRI study pointed to atrophic changes of the brain and a built-in hydrocephalus.

In EEG 16.11.2011 were recorded irregular alpha rhythm of the average amplitude 50 mV, unmodulated, without a clear zonal distribution, distorted theta and beta activity, according to the spectral modal analysis, the greatest power in the form of increase of amplitude at fronto-Central and parietal leads. Recorded reduced sharp waves alpha range in the temporal leads. When carrying out functional tests have shown reduced complexes sharp-slow wave in the frontal and temporal leads. Data suggested diffuse changes of bioelectric activity of brain dysfunction median stem structures at the diencephalic level, is ysenia clock thalamocortical influence, the emergence of functional loads in temporal and frontal areas was more pronounced local changes of bioelectric activity of irritative nature. In the study of evoked potentials were determined relative dysfunction of the stem auditory holding left with a decrease in the functional activity of the auditory nuclei on mesencephalon level, the decrease in the rate of differentiation of the auditory stimuli of different characteristics, reflecting the decrease in the rate of cognitive processes.

A course of magnitolazeroterapii according to the proposed method. Have simultaneously bitemporal and back area with emitters "headband baby" and "prismatic children alternating magnetic field in a continuous mode with 50 Hz frequency, inductance 9-15 MT and synchronously NEELY wavelength of 0.85 to 0.9 μm, 50 Hz, 3,5 mW from spacecraft TRANSCRANIAL" within 10 min the rate of 10 daily procedures. After treatment, the boy became calmer, more attentive in the classroom speech therapy and physical therapy, has become more confident gait and execute instructions. Improved pronunciation, expanded the volume of speech output, volume of active movements increased to 3-3,5 points, spasticity decreased to 1 point.

Re-hospitalization at the clinic IMC wounds after 8 months, with 13.08.2012 on 31.08.2012, history 960. When on the following preserved elements of mental retardation with impaired language functions in the form of dysarthria and underdevelopment of speech, volume of active movements in the left paretic limbs 3.5 points, spasticity 1+ points.

In EEG 16.08.2012 main rhythm regular, with an average frequency of 7.5 Hz, not modulated, moderately increased synchronization, smoothed zonal differences. Registered frequent synchronous complexes sharp-slow wave initially in the right temporal and fronto-Central leads, with emphasis on the amplitude on the left. Under functional loads these systems have become more frequent and increased in amplitude in the left temporal leads. Data testified to the delay in the formation of cortical-subcortical interactions on a background of dysfunction of the median stem structures at the diencephalic level with local epileptiform activity. In the study of evoked potentials installed the difficulty of determining hearing thresholds, basic mezhpikovoe intervals I-V in the normal range, the relative decrease in the amplitude V of wave stimulation on the right. Upon presentation of the standard and deviant auditory stimuli were recorded positive wave of sufficient amplitude with a moderately pronounced increase of the latent period of up to 439 MS (age norm 400 MS). Data testified to normalize the speed of conduction along the stem auditory pathways with moderate reduction of functional activity of the auditory nuclei of mesencephalon the level to the right, improvement of cognitive processes.

Repeated course magnitolazeroterapii according to the proposed method. After treatment installed continuing positive trend. When neuropsychological examination set age-appropriate mental development, continued General underdevelopment of speech dominated desarticulado component, neoformierung visual gnosis and visuo-spatial functions due to deficiency of right hemisphere structures. The good learning. Volume of active movements in the left paretic limbs remained within 3.5 points, but the movement was facilitated by reducing spasticity to 0-1 points. Increased motor skills, started to work on the bike.

In EEG 29.08.2012 was subdominios the basic rhythm of an average frequency of 8 Hz, bimodal, weak modulation, moderately increased synchronization, smoothed zonal differences, power dominated theta rhythm frequency of 6.5 Hz. Recorded reduced complexes sharp-slow wave initially in the right temporo-occipital and fronto-Central leads, moderately increasing the functional loads. Compared to EEG from 16.08.2012 saw a positive trend in reducing dysfunction median stem structures on diencephalic ur the outside, diffuse and local decrease the power of slow waves, a rise of power of the alpha rhythm in the Central region, reducing the severity and prevalence of local epileptiform activity.

From the given example that the courses of magnitolazeroterapii according to the proposed method accelerated psychomania development of the child with developmental delay due to perinatal encephalopathy in the form of recovery of cognitive processes, expressed in the emergence and consolidation of motor skills, the improvement of neuropsychological status up to age norms and speech praxis with decreasing dysarthria. EEG studies have revealed the period of the domination medlennovolnovoj activity, as a marker of activation of protective reactions of the brain, its compensation more than adequate zonal distribution of the basic rhythm, reduce irritative changes and the presence of markers of recovery of cognitive processes.

Example 2. Patient R., aged 11, was on rehabilitation in the clinic IMC RAS 29.05.2011 on 10.06.2011, history 703. Diagnosis: effects of perinatal encephalopathy. Severe mental retardation. The clinical picture in the background of the asthenic syndrome (headaches, insomnia, irritability, fatigue), identified negativism, vplo the ü to aggressiveness, elements of motor awkwardness, periodic ticks and bad learning in an intervention programme. For a long time received Depakine. Neuropsychological study found pronounced mental retardation, impaired communicative functions. For a patient characterized by unstable mood, rapid exhaustion, impulsivity, low intellectual-mnestic functions. It was understood, but it was difficult with the details. Had dysgraphia and dyslalia in the form of poorly coordinated words and syllables. MRI examination revealed periventricular liquor cyst in the left parietal region, hypoplasia and abnormal tortuosity of the left vertebral artery. PET study found diffuse hypometabolism of glucose (in the temporal and frontal lobes, optic tubercles, the cerebellum, the brain stem).

In EEG 09.06.2011 registered reduced epileptiform activity (sharp wave complexes sharp-slow wave) primarily in the frontal areas on the background of diffuse changes of bioelectric activity and dysfunction of the median stem structures. The study called cognitive potentials 30.05.2011 showed a decrease in the speed of cognitive processes medium upon presentation of visual stimuli of different characteristics (latency component R amounted to 548 MS) and pre is yavlenie auditory stimuli of different characteristics (latency component R amounted to 600 MS). Data testified hyperthyroidism separate brain systems, as a sign of stable pathological conditions, and reducing the adequate functioning of the brain, predicted the possible formation of epileptic foci.

A course of magnitolazeroterapii according to the proposed method. Have simultaneously bitemporal and back area with emitters "headband" and "prismatic" alternating magnetic field in a continuous mode with 50 Hz frequency, inductance 21-27 MT and synchronously NEELY wavelength of 0.85 to 0.9 μm, 50 Hz, 5 mW from spacecraft TRANSCRANIAL" for 12 min rate of 10 daily procedures.

In the process of treatment within 2 days had trouble falling asleep since 3 days, marked relief of headache. After treatment, found a decrease in irritability, aggressiveness, lack of convulsive equivalents, the child was more than adequate when dealing with relatives and others, including verbal. The tendency to stabilize mental status.

Re-hospitalized IMC wounds after 6 months, with 11.12.2011 on 23.12.2011, history 1448. During the examination using test Veksler revealed severe emotional lability, decreased criticism for his behavior, difficulty focusing perekljuchaemost attention the weakening of memory. Could repeat the mentioned 10 words only after a 10-fold repetition (usually after 3-5 times). The volume of short-term memory is reduced and was 4 information unit. Thinking specifically functional. Social intelligence below age norms. Data testified mental disorders and the weakening of organic type, the uneven nature of motivational and volitional functions of the intellect, indirect signs of affective and personality changes. The psychiatrist confirmed psychopathic behavior.

In the picture EEG 12.12.2011 in comparison with the data 09.06.2011 were not recorded reduced epileptiform activity in the frontal areas. Showed more pronounced local epileptiform changes in the occipital-parietal region on the left (sharp wave complexes sharp-slow wave), single reduced sharp waves in the left temporal and right occipital region. Remained moderate diffuse changes in the bioelectrical activity and dysfunction of the median stem structures at the diencephalic level. In the study called cognitive potentials in comparison with the study 30.05.2011 increased and the relative normalization of the speed of cognitive processes by presenting visual stimuli of different characteristics. Latency component is R upon presentation of visual stimuli decreased with 548 345 MS to MS, the amplitude N2P3 was 15-17 mV. Latency component R upon presentation of the auditory stimuli was 389-401 MS, amplitude N2P3 - 17-20 µv. Latency component R upon presentation of the auditory stimuli of different characteristics decreased from 600 MS to 389-401 MS. The latency caused by cognitive potentials almost reached the age limit of 340 MS. Data testified to the continuing trend to reduce the signs of hyperactivity of brain systems, the most prevalent sound local changes, recovery of cognitive processes.

Repeated course magnitolazeroterapii according to the proposed method 10 daily procedures. Directly after treatment, despite continuing signs of negativity (roughness), the boy became more attentive, balanced, started to watch movies. In EEG 23.12.2011 confirmed the continuing positive trend became less pronounced local epileptiform changes. Registered single reduced sharp waves in the left temporal region, local irritative changes in the bioelectrical activity in the frontal and temporal areas, with emphasis on the amplitude on the left.

From the given example that the courses of magnitolazeroterapii according to the proposed method was resolved psychic R is sweetie child, violated as a result of perinatal encephalopathy, in the form of recovery of cognitive processes, expressed in compensation of the symptoms of psychopathic behavior, the emergence and consolidation of intellectual-mental skills. EEG studies have confirmed a strong tendency to compensate for hyperactivity of brain structures, mainly responsible for the emotional-volitional sphere, as a sign of stable pathological conditions, and recovering the parameters of the cognitive potentials almost to the age norm.

Using the proposed method improves the efficiency of the treatment of encephalopathy in children of different origins due to the activation of cognitive functions.
