The impact on the area of the upper cervical sympathetic ganglia

In 1953, Netter and Lambert suggested to stimulate ovulation block upper cervical sympathetic nodes using their direction with Novocain (procaine, xylocain). Recommendations the authors argued good clinical effect in 60% of patients with amenorrhea, anovulatory cycles, uterine bleeding. Similar reports were also made Cusi (1957), Ramon (1960), paying particular attention to good hemostatic effect of the blockade of the upper cervical sympathetic ganglia when anovulatory uterine bleeding. Researchers celebrated the coming of secretory transformations endometrial after the specified interventions.
These data, in the period 1960-1970 were subjected to a detailed inspection in conditions NASA clinic (C. D. Sazonov). Previously there was conducted an experiment on white rats that have by using hyperluminous was caused permanent estrus (see Chapter 4). It turned out that the day after bilateral blockade of the upper cervical sympathetic ganglia 78% white rats with svetaandreevna permanent estrus last stopped. As a rule, for 3-4 days were installed phase of the SR of NSAID, and then recovered sexual cycle, former to hyperluminous. The slaughter of animals in a stage called heat revealed that the estrus flowed from them in the presence of follicular cysts in the ovaries and single old, is in a stage of regress, yellow phone After blockade in the ovaries were determined fresh yellow body and luteinization of granular cells of the follicles. Follow up of animals, which are not produced blockade, showed the long existence svetaandreevna heat with a very slow recovery of normal sexual cycles.
Serrmann (1962) also conducted an experiment on white rats with the blockade of the upper cervical sympathetic ganglia and came to the conclusion that this interaction causes the cessation of estrus and simultaneously affected in some way on metabolism, as in animals was reduced weight.
For the treatment of dysfunctional bleeding, which developed on the soil of anovulatory processes, the blockade of the upper cervical sympathetic ganglia, we have selected 115 women ages 37 to 49 years. Preliminary dispensary observation and direct the investigation in the clinic at the time of bleeding revealed in all patients bright signs anovulatory process behind acyclic bleeding. All of the patients were produced supracervical blockade.
