Medical care in Montenegro.

Medical  care in Montenegro.

Magic of Montenegro is unprecedented. Many people around the world have probably just yesterday heard about this small but proud country, situated on the southern coast of the Adriatic.  Yesterday, Donald Trump, the president of USA has welcomed Montenegro to the league of NATO.

The country has a rich heritage and it is a heaven for nature lovers. After all it derives its name from the Italian word for Black Mountains. It does indeed has the second biggest canyon in the world with the river of Tara flowing wildly in the country’s north part. Adding to this is  Durmitor National Park with the rarest species of plants and trees, Rijeka Crnojevica park of nature  not forgetting Skadar lake which is a natural border with Albania. The country’s coastal part is a symbiosis or nature and culture. Montenegro’s three bays, Herceg Novi, Tivat and Kotor ,this last one resembles Norwegian fiord are intertwined with the towns after which they are named. Kotor does indeed have the richest past as it was allied with the Venetian Republic. The town’s naval tradition has largely contributed to the naissance of Peter the Great’s fleet. The southern coastal town of  Ulcinj because of its proximity to the Albanian border has an architectural influence of the Ottoman Empire.

Since gaining its independence in 2006, the country has attracted investments in the tourism, real estate and energy sectors. It does have the second biggest marina in the northern Mediterranean, Porto Montenegro is a mega yacht – real estate-hotel complex marina. Currently there are works being underdone for the even bigger complex of this sort named Porto Novi after the town of Herceg Novi.

Heavy investments are being pumped into the country . When it comes to the medical care of people  who are visiting this hidden gem and those who have decided to live here. By the way, EURO is an official currency, there is only one comprehensive solution available, that of Marin Med Montenegro.

Marin Med Montenegro offers comprehensive medical  health care. It operates as a concierge service within Kotor General Hospital. It does have its own luxury accommodation units and exclusive access to all the departments. The fact that Marin Med Montenegro is a sister company of Marin Med Dubrovnik , Croatia emits a high dose of confidence. Kotor is only 90 mintues away from Dubrovnik and Marin Med Dubrovnik has even better latest technologies in the medical care sectors.

This does sound reassuring especially as all those who are interested in the real estate in Montenegro can sleep soundly knowing that the both medical healthcare companies will be looking for their health.

Hotel in Montenegro!

The first thing you type into your Google search engine is „hotel in Montenegro“ once you have previously discussed it with your partner to discover this mesmerizing country. I write counrty not a state to avoid possible misconception. Yes  indeed we are talking about small Southern-Eastern European country with a stunningly changing contrast of mountains and seaside coastline, resulting in one and only South European fiord otherwise known as Kotor Bay.

Montenegro, country of its 600,000 proud inhabitants derived its independence from Serbia in 2006 and never looked   back since. Strongly gearing towards Euro-Atlantic integrations, the country has recently put in an application to join NATO. Ever since it gained its independence, Montenegro focused on the development of tourism building first class hotels and marinas. Porto Montenegro is the biggest super yacht marina on the Adriatic with the flagship Regent Porto Montenegro hotel. Previously, hotel Splendid, another five star hotel  in Montenegro has the only heliodrome in the region, needless to mention that the Queen of Montenegro is a queen in a true meaning of the word for dice lovers.

It is also worth mentioning that trendy St Stephen’s resort is now Aman Resort and One Resort is going to introduce its only European resort as part of the Porto Novi development. However, the country is working hard to improve its infrastructure although popular seaside destinations, Kotor, Budva and Tivat even Bar and Ulcinj are beyond recognition. The second keyword you are to key in is heath care or medical care in Montenegro. As for doctors in Montenegro, the options are a bit limited. Marin Med Montenegro is the only first class private medical needs provider which operates  within Kotor General Hospital and has exclusive access to hospital’s departments in Kotor and Kotor doctors. It operates as a concierge service for its clients and works the internationally recognized insurance companies and medical assistance facilitators. The fact that it is a sister company of Marin Med Dubrovnik also helps as it can respond quickly in the emergency situations as it is only 45 minutes reach from Dubrovnik Croatia with fully operating facilities and latest technology medical devices especially in the field of radiology.

Bolesti modernog doba – multipla skleroza ili MS!

U današnjoj svakodnevici se susrećemo sa sve većim brojem mladih ljudi koji su oboljeli od tkz bolesti modernog doba. Jedna od takvih bolesti je i multipla skleroza ili MS.

Riječ je o autoimunoj bolesti središnjeg živčanog sustava koju karakterizira povremeni ili progresivni gubitak senzornih, motoričkih i kognitivnih funkcija. Kod većine bolesnika ova bolest se javlja u dobi između 20. i 45. godine života, sasvim rijetko prije 15. i nakon 55. godine, a zanimljivo je da žene obolijevaju dva puta češće od muškaraca. Interesantan je i podatak da je bolest češća u zemljama koje su smještene između 40. i 65. stupnja sjeverne geografske širine.

Po svojoj definiciji, MS je upalna autoimuna demijelinizacijska bolest središnjeg živčanog sustava koju karakterizira upalna reakcija i potom propadanje mijelinske ovojnice produžetaka živčanih stanica koje služe prijenosu impulsa između živčanih stanica. Karakteristično je stvaranje tzv. demijelinizacijskih plakova (ožiljaka) u strukturama mozga ili u kralježničkoj moždini, na mjestima nestanka mijelinske ovojnice. Budući da mozak i kralježnička moždina imaju velik rezervni kapacitet, mnoga područja upale mijelinske ovojnice u početku bolesti neće pokazati nikakve simptome.

Manje promjene koje zahvaćaju mijelinsku ovojnicu usporavaju provođenje živčanih impulsa i obično ne uzrokuju nastanak simptoma bolesti, ali se smatra da su odgovorne za nastanak simptoma opće slabosti na koju se često bolesnici žale.

Simptomi MS ovise o mjestu zahvaćanja i jakosti upale mijelinske ovojnice aksona i to je razlog zbog kojeg su simptomi bolesti različiti, a tijek bolesti teško predvidiv. Kod većine bolesnika simptomi se pojavljuju povremeno, a s progresijom bolesti se mijenjaju u jakosti i trajanju. Početni simptomi su najčešće subjektivne smetnje osjeta, smanjenje oštrine vida, gubljenje snage u jednom ili više ekstremiteta, dvoslike, poremećaji ravnoteže i vrtoglavice, smetnje kontrole mokrenja i stolice. Mogući su i poremećaji koordinacije pokreta, tremor, skandiran govor, pojava spasticiteta, mentalni poremećaji i to najčešće depresija. Multiplu sklerozu nije lako dijagnosticirati jer ne postoji određeni test kojim se nepobitno dokazuje, niti karakterističan simptom bolesti. Dijagnostika počinje detaljnom anamnezom i kliničkim pregledom bolesnika. Nakon toga se laboratorijskim testovima isključuju drugi mogući uzroci simptoma. Karakteristične pretraga MS-a su analiza cerebrospinalnog likvora, evocirani moždani potencijali, magnetska rezonanca (MR) mozga i vratne kralježnice, a po potrebi i cijele kralježnice.

Prof.dr.sc. Vesna Brinar, pročelnica Odjela za poremećaje ravnoteže i vrtoglavice u Referentnom centru za demijelinizacijske bolesti središnjeg živčanog sustava KBC-a Zagreb ujedno posjećuje Polikliniku Marin Med u Dubrovniku, te primjenom svoje metodologije u većini slučajeva stavlja bolest pod kontrolu. Predbilježbe za pregled sa prof.dr.sc. Vesnom Brinar možete izvršiti telefonski na +385 (20) 400 500 ili putem mail-a na info@marin-med.com
