Epidemiology cystitis

H hepatitis C is one of the leading causes of liver disease worldwide. Especially cystitis in Greece is estimated that about .. 2% of the general population, or 200,000 people, are chronically infected with hepatitis C. The highest incidence of hepatitis C occurs in persons aged 40-60 years. It is a fact that new cases of hepatitis C have been reduced considerably since the late 1980s, mainly due to the statutory audit of blood-derived and generally cystitis improve nursing conditions and rules of sterilization. But many old cases of hepatitis C remain undiagnosed. Thus, the numbers of patients diagnosed with hepatitis C are expected to grow substantially over the next decade because of the revelation of more and more old cases of hepatitis C.

The hepatitis C virus is transmitted primarily parenterally, i.e. with the individual contact with infected blood or blood derivatives. Usual modes of transmission of hepatitis C are: use of intravenous drugs. Is currently the main route of transmission of hepatitis C. It is estimated that more than 80% of active or former injecting drug users have hepatitis C. Transfusion

of blood or blood derivatives (before 1992). Blood transfusions and derivatives are now considered safe, but all the people who had received blood transfusions before 1992 should be tested because you may have been infected with hepatitis C. Dialysis (artificial kidney). The possibility of transmitting hepatitis C at dialysis units has decreased

significantly in recent years. Piercing with a contaminated needle or infected tool. The possibility of transmitting hepatitis C after apotrypima with an infected cystitis needle is small, about 2-10%. Infected organ transplant in the past. Organ transplants are now considered perfectly safe. Medical or paramedical acts. The possibility cystitis of transmitting hepatitis C to medical or paramedical acts (injections, tattooing, piercing parts of the body) is negligible, if the rules sterilization and proper nursing. Sexual (sexual) transmission. As soon as 2-4% of stable sexual partners of patients with hepatitis C proved to have hepatitis C. The possibility of transmitting hepatitis C in stable monogamous heterosexual couples are less than 1% per year, but increases considerably in people with multiple sexual partners or have sex with. Vertical transmission (from mother to child). Transmission of hepatitis C positive mother to newborn is considered to occur approximately 2-7%. The likelihood of transmission to the neonate increases to 20% when mothers have infection cystitis with the virus of AIDS. Unknown mode of transmission. It is worth noting that a significant proportion (30-40%) of patients with hepatitis C is never revealed exposure to risk factors.

The incubation period of acute hepatitis C (ie the time from the moment of infection until the onset of symptoms) is 30-90 days. The majority (75-80%) of patients with acute hepatitis C have no symptoms, but unfortunately most patients (65-85%) fail to eliminate the virus and subsequently develop chronic hepatitis C.

Patients with chronic hepatitis C do not usually have any symptoms, but 15-20% of them develop cirrhosis within cystitis 20 years. The risk of developing cirrhosis is much smaller in children and young women and much higher in middle-aged with post transfusion hepatitis. The simultaneous presence of hepatitis B and / or infection with the AIDS virus and alcohol abuse accelerate the progression of chronic hepatitis C to cirrhosis. All patients with cirrhosis have an increased risk of developing liver cancer. Cirrhosis and liver cancer are the two most common causes of death in patients with chronic hepatitis C.

Diagnosis cystitis of hepatitis C is based initially on the simple detection of specific antibodies in the blood against the hepatitis C (anti-HCV). Failure cystitis to detect such antibodies cystitis to practically exclude the presence of hepatitis C, except for the initial period cystitis of acute infection (so not yet developed antibodies) and immunosuppressed or hemodialysis patients
