The Subjective Evaluation of a Patient´s Overall Health State at the End of the Reduction Phase of Lymphedema Treatment
The graduation thesis is focused on Lymphedema patientś problems. It addresses how the patient values his or her own health state. The differences between a patientś health state before therapy and after finishing its reduction phase have been compared. The following aspect have been valued: limited movement, pain and mental stress. All of them were improved after the reduction phase. Thus Hypothesis 1 has been confirmed: "At the end of the Reduction Phase of Lymphedema therapy the overal health state of the patient is improved." Out of above meditioned three aspect, the mental stress improved at a lowest rate. Differences between patients with and without good social background were demonstrated. Patients with bad social background valued mental stress caused by Lymphedema before and after the therapy as significantly higher then patients with good social background. Thus Hypothesis 2 was also confirmed: "Patients with good social background cope with their disease in a better way." In order to test the hypotheses the quantitative research was done. The technique was standardised integration.

Education of patients with ulcerative colitis
My bachelor thesis focused on " Education of patients with ulcerative colitis " has been split in theoretical part and practical part. The theoretical part has been focused on characteristicsof ulcerative colitis and education. This part has been split in nine chapters. The chapters describe anatomy and physiology of colon, definition of the disease, its causes, symptoms and complications. Furthermore, the chapters have been focused on examination methods and treatment of ulcerative colitis and nursing care. The last chapter of the theoretical part has been devoted to education. There were two aims defined for the bachelor thesis; to describe methods of educating the clients suffering from ulcerative colitis and to determine efficiency of education for a patient suffering from ulcerative colitis (in the course of 3 months after the first education). Based on the specified aims, three investigation questions were asked. What is the effect of the suggested education on health status of a client suffering from ulcerative colitis? Does observance of diet measures affect relapse of the disease? How do reasonable physical strain and psychical stress affect the disease? The practical part of the thesis has been processed through qualitative research. The research was made with respondents with the diagnoses of ulcerative colitis and with nurses who work at gastroenterologic ward in the hospital in České Budějovice, a.s. The research was split in three parts. The first part included interviewing of eight respondents with the diagnoses of ulcerative colitis. The interview was semi-structured. This included eighteen questions focused on the progress of the disease, education of the respondent, diet measures and influence of physical strain and psychical stress on the disease. Then, each respondent was educated through the education. The second part included interviewing of three nurses from gastroenterologic ward in the hospital in České Budějovice, a.s. The interview was semi-structured, too. It included sixteen questions which are very similar to allow better comparison with the patients. The third part was focused on check of knowledge and efficiency of former education of three respondents. This was a structured interview. It included five questions. These were focused on present status of the disease, evaluation of observance and efficiency of the low-residue diet and the basis of mental hygiene. The interviews were taken in calm home environment. Results of the research showed that the respondents have lack of information most frequently in the field of physical strain and psychical stress and often in the field of low-residue diet. However, the respondents are mainly well-educated about the definition of the disease and about treatment. In my opinion, my bachelor thesis is helpful because it has proven that correct education may have positive effect on the progress of the disease. The thesis might be also used as education material and it might help improve education of clients with the diagnoses of ulcerative colitis.

The nursing process in a patient with cystic fibrosis
Václavková, Aleksandra ; Tomová, Šárka (advisor) ; Kaplická, Jitka (referee)
This bachelor ́s thesis deals with patients suffering from cystic fibrosis (CF). The thesis includes a theoretical and a practical part. In the theoretical one, underlying anatomical and physiological disturbances in key organ systems are discussed. A historical review, genetics aspects, manifestations of the disease and current treating possibilities are also concerned. Despite a considerable improvement on the field of the diagnostic process, the diagnosis of CF is still often considered to late with negative consequences on the prognosis. Although the causal therapy is still not existing, an intensive supportive care can significantly prolong and improve the quality of life of the patients. Considerable progress in the treatment research promises a total cure in the future. The practical part of the thesis contains an analysis of separates steps of the nursing process and its practical application in one concrete patient. I elaborated a nursing anamnesis according to the Gordon's functional health model. I elicited detailed information about patient's health state for establishing his complex evaluation. When the nursing problems determined and the diagnoses established, I worked on the realisation of defined nursing goals. According to the efficacy feedback, I continuously adapted the approach to the...

Herůfek, Radim ; Džupa, Valér (advisor)
Total hip arthroplasty is one of the best methods of treatment postwar medicine. Patients with severely degenerated joints are plagued by persistent pain that will not allow them normal daily activities , do not allow them quality sleep and also cause great mental anguish. Joint replacement implant leads relieving pain , restore function . Originally disabled patient returns to normal life and employment , which is often physically demanding. Therefore, total replacement of the significant effect of treatment , social and economic . The significant development of total joint arthroplasty for the last 40 years has resulted in various types and designs of acetabular holes femoral stems and heads , which in turn causes a lack of clarity on the menu, which , moreover, is still expanding. For implantation compensation is very important accurate indication of a specific type prosthesis , and therefore it is necessary to conduct epidemiological studies of patients who help refine the indications thus facilitating the selection of individual components. The following work is an overview of epidemiological data of patients with implantation of hip replacement patients operated on Orthopaedics and Traumatology FNKV clinic in 2006.

Prostatic cancer and possibilities of prediction of early success of radical prostatectomy
Svačina, Jakub ; Hanuš, Tomáš (advisor) ; Zachoval, Roman (referee)
Classification of adenocarcinoma prostatae is very important for the treatment. I have described the disease, its treatment and classification in the introduction. I have analysed a sample of 52 patients from the Urological Clinic of General Faculty Hospital. Simple statistics was used for comparing and analysing of relation of preoperative classification and postoperative development of PSA. I have compared preoperative and operative Gleason's score. Preoperative Gleason score underscores the operative score. PSA decrease is significantly higher in patients with high initial PSA and in patients with classification T2N0M0. PSA one month after surgery does not differ in patients with classification T1C and T2 and it does not correlate with the preoperative characteristics of patients. The decrease of PSA is perhaps dependent only on the surgical treatment. Effect of operation cannot be predicted by Gleason score and by age. These results are valid only for patients undergoing radical prostractomy
