Pentilin is used: with atherosclerotic encephalopathy; with ischemic cerebral stroke; with discirculatory encephalopathy; in violation of peripheral blood circulation caused by diabetic angiopathy, atherosclerosis, inflammatory processes; with trophic disorders in tissues associated with venous damage; in violation of microcirculation (frostbite, trophic ulcers, post-thrombophlebitic syndrome, gangrene); with obliterating endarteritis; with angioneuropathy (Raynaud’s disease); in case of impaired blood circulation of the eye (circulatory failure in the retina, choroid); in case of dysfunction of the inner ear associated with vascular pathology.
Pentilin composition and form of release
The active ingredient is pentoxifylline.
It is produced in the form of a solution (2%).
It is an agent that causes vasodilation. It is a methylxanthine derivative. Its action is associated with the inhibition of phosphodiesterase and the accumulation of cAMP in vascular smooth muscle cells, blood cells, and other organs and tissues. It inhibits the aggregation of erythrocytes, platelets, increases their flexibility, reduces the increased concentration of fibrinogen in the blood, enhances fibrinolysis, thus reducing blood viscosity, improving its rheological properties. It also causes unexpressed myotropic vasodilatation, reducing OPSS, has a positive inotropic effect (increases the force of contraction of the heart). As a result, microcirculation and oxygen supply to tissues are improved. Slightly improves coronary circulation.
