INITIAL REQUIREMENTS TO THE DATABASE SYSTEM 1. An opportunity of distributed data processing; 2. Tables, which are describing parameters of a patient examination or technique of an operative intervention, contain too many descriptive attributes; 3. Information can be obtained in a graphical form (for example, roentgenograms); 4. Direct receipt of information from a diagnostic medical equipment is possible; 5. An opportunity of real time processing; 6. Usage of data both from local and global computerintegrated environments; 7. A differentiation of access, based on a centralized password authorization of a user as well as on a concept of user groups with the group rights (medical, laboratory, administrative personnel, patients) and a concept of groups for information field resources (personal data, laboratory results, diagnoses, operative interventions). 8. Data integrity limitations implied by the relations "single to multiple", "multiple to multiple" and "inherence" between objects. 9. Declarative data integrity limitations, imposed by descriptive attributes. CLINICAL ASPECTS OF A VIRTUAL OPERATING ROOM FOR PREDICTION OF OPERATIVE INTERVANTIONS UNDER SOME PATHOLOGIES OF MIDDLE EAR A retrospective review of satiating meanings for the word "virtual" in the area of computer sciences clearly demonstrates its development from a virtual storage, then a virtual machine to a virtual reality, i.e. an adequate 3D framework and an environment for a user generated by a computer. It allows without any effort to include and to merge a user within the mentioned environment. The virtual reality hides reading, writing and arithmetic and replaces it by direct, nonsymbolic environmental experience. The problems of a virtual reality turned to be specially important for novel complicated and higherprecision technologies. At the same time these technologies very rapidly become obsolete and the main problem here is a great contradiction between the time of determining optimal modes and possibilities of such a technology and the time of a new technology creation. This is the reason why investigations in the area of virtual highprecision technologies are considered as the most global and important problems within many national and international perspective scientific programs. All the existing achievements in modern information technologies and computerintegrated environments including global networks, communication resources, multimedia, etc. are serving to achieve solutions for these problems. On the other hand, an intensive development of a surgical medical instrument set and tools (microscopes, lasers, computer monitoring, etc.), a tendency of decreasing essentially a time interval between a new and a typical operative intervention and a tendency of increasing essentially a complexity of operative interventions and a number of surgical patients allow to ascertain as the determining for the present and the nearest future a creation of high precision, complicated, computerintegrated and, at the same time, rapidly becoming obsolete technologies of operative interventions. The described situation is very typical for otosurgery which could be characterized, on one hand, by a complexity of a miniature hearing organ, a usage of a very highprecision instrument set, essential contradictions among scientific references on operative interventions and, on the other hand, a relatively compact and simple operative environment. All the mentioned characteristics make otosurgery evidently suitable for experiments on its immersion into a computerintegrated environment. The planned system will make simulation and prediction of operative interventions transparent and empower the participant with natural interaction. The technical challenge is to create mediation languages and tools which enforce rigorous mathematical computation while supporting intuitive behavior. The system will be based on new possibilities of computerintegrated environments and will be presented in a form of a virtual operating room. ...
