PASI assessment index for patients treated at Natural Health Spa Smrdáky
In the past, we evaluated the results of complex balneotherapy for psoriasis using the PASI index in a group of 15 patients who were treated for 4 weeks and had no restrictions on treatment.
Results: 14 persons (93%) achieved PASI 75. Because it was a relatively small and disparate set (13 men and 2 women), and our patients also have treatment limitations, we analysed the evaluation results of complex balneotherapy for psoriasis in a set of 120 patients (63 men and 57 women) with a mean age of 51.8 r. After one month of comprehensive balneotherapy at PLK Smrdáky, PASI 75 values were achieved for:
50% (15 pts. in a group of 31 patients with diagnoses and treatment limitations), and 82% (73 pts. in a set of 89 pts.).
The overall average of PASI 75 was 73.3% (88 pts. in a set of 120 pts. total).
