Rare IllnessesBack to treatments
Given the onset of rare conditions mainly linked to the neonatal or infantile period (birth trauma, mitochondrial diseases, autism spectrum syndromes and others), the most commonly used technique is rectal insufflation performed with silicone catheters and with adequate ozone concentrations age and weight of the children to be treated. The technique, which is identical in its execution even in adults, is performed with a slow and constant insufflation of ozone / oxygen mixtures at different concentrations and volumes at the level of the rectal ampoule. The presence of the haemorrhoidal plexus and an important vascularization is the ideal condition for a good absorption of the gas that will perform its function, as happens in venous infusion, through the activation of numerous second messengers. Obviously, due to the presence of foreign material and probable anatomical alterations in the various conditions, the overall efficacy cannot be compared to the one of systemic intravenous treatment even if the results obtained on thousands of people all over the world, and particularly in Cuba, have demonstrated surprising general improving effects in both young patients and adults.
