Alcohol-Associated Polyneuropathy (Scientific Review)

T.V. Chistik

Abstract


The paper deals with the results of the investigation of the epidemiology and pathogenesis of alcohol-associated polyneuropathy. There are presented the results of clinical studies on this pathology. The polyneuropathy was found to develop in persons abused ethanol not less than 100 ml a day. It was concluded that polyneuropathy occurs mostly in persons with chronic alcoholism and is asymptomic on early stages. At that the duration of alcohol abuse and kind of drink play a significant role. The complex of B vitamins was shown to be of a great importance for polyneuropathy treatment, including alcohol-associated ones. It was emphasized on using Vitaxon® with a high clinical efficacy in alcohol-associated polyneuropathies treatment due to high doses of thiamine hydrochloride, pyridoxine hydrochloride and cyanocobalamine.
