More context is available.
"Malone antegrade continence enema (ACE) procedure.
(Antegrade Colonic Enema).


"Q: We have a patient with prune belly syndrome who is 4 years old and is basically enema dependent. Would the ace procedure benefit this type of patient? Anyone with this type of experience? J M
A: The ACE procedure may help him. I consider very important to offer the ACE procedure to a patient ONLY after we have demonstrated that the enemas work and keep the patient clean. We have evidence that indicates that some times the ACE (Malone) procedure is performed without a previous demonstration that enemas work. Remember the ACE is only the creation of a different route of enema administration (1).

At 6 1/2 years Jose had surgery to close his bladder to the urethra so that he doesn't leak into his underwear. He also had the ACE procedure done. This allows him to do his enema through a stoma on the side of his stomach instead of his rectum."

vvedenie preparatov-ingibitorov (, tormozyaschih konvertatsiyu) angiotenzina I v angiotenzin II

ACE is an acronym of angiotensin (or angiotonin) converting enzyme.

This enzyme cleaves the decapeptide angiotensin I (biologically inactive) to form active angiotensin II by angiotensin converting enzyme. Angiotensin II causes contraction of vascular smooth muscle and thus raises blood pressure and stimulates aldosterone release from the adrenal glands. Angiotensin is finally broken down by angiotensinases.

Elevations in angiotensin converting enzyme are seen in sarcoidosis, histplasmosis, alcoholic cirrhosis,
asbestosis, berrylliosis, diabetes, Hodgkin's disease, hyperthyroidism, amyloidosis, primary biliary cirrhosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary embolism, scleroderma, silicosis, tuberculosis, Gaucher's disease and leprosy. The normal values are 18 to 67 U/ml over 20 years of age (people under 20 have higher levels).

ACE procedure or ACE inhibition means administration of ACE-inhibiting agents (serum protease inhibitors) that block the formation of angiotensin II and decrease the degradation of bradykinin and other kinins. ACE inhibitors cause a decrease in sodium and water retension, a decrease in blood pressure, an improvement in cardiac output, and a decrease in heart size.

Finally, ACE procedure can be translated as "vvedenie preparatov-ingibitorov (, tormozyaschih or
podavlyayuschih) konvertatsyyu angiotenzina I v aktivnuyu formu angiotenzina II.
