Guidance center for adult patients with cystic fibrosis
Our guidance center for adult patients with cystic fibrosis was established in December 1987, and until year 2000 it was the only pneumological clinic of its kind in the Czech Republic. During past years, there has been an increase in the number of adult patients with cystic fibrosis, currently we take care of more than 100 of such patients. Presence of the epidemiological strain called Burkholderia cenocepacia has been our main problem since year 1994. The rate of patients contamined with this strain reached 53% in year 1999. Since then, thanks hygienic-epidemiologic regime this rate has been decreased to 35%.
Care of the patients with cystic fibrosis
Patients from the department of pediatrics of the CF center Prague are under our care once they have reached the age of 18 years old, as well as patients diagnosed with this disease after they have reached 18 years old. The diagnosis process consists of a careful assessment of the clinical picture, a quantitative measurement of sweat chloride and a genetic examination. Treatment includes all kinds of modern procedures, both pharmacological and non-pharmacological, as well as lung transplantation. Collaboration with other departments of Motol University Hospital is certainly an obligatory; among others we could name the Pediatrics Clinic, Institute of Biology and Medical Genetics, Rehabilitative and Sports Medicine Clinic, Institute of Medical Microbiology and III Surgery Clinic.
