[The treatment of obesity is a complex process, the elements of which are lifestyle change (diet and exercise), psychic driving, medication and need in case of surgical treatment. The Hungarian Society of Obesitology and Movement Therapy the first half year of the weight loss program is low in carbs and elevated suggests a protein-rich diet. When designing physical activity, dynamic, aerobic (eg walking, walking, jogging, swimming, cycling, etc.) are recommended. In drug therapy, orlistat, naltrexone / bupropion, is fixed combination and liraglutide play a role. Bariatric surgery they are currently most effective in the short- and long-term treatment of obesity.]

[A new approach to renal osteodystrophy in the diagnosis and treatment of]

SZLOVÁK Edina, DOLGOS Szilveszter, MÁCSAI Emília

[Treatment of renal osteodystrophy (ROD) is one of the new osteoporosis recommendations requires a rethink of the current therapeutic approach. Addressing vitamin D deficiency and reducing quality of life deterioration caused by bone fractures it is also an important professional challenge in the renal insufficiency population. ROD is a classic nephrological treatment to improve the results of the newer molecular expected from better understanding of pathomechanisms and better imaging methods. Associated associations with vascular calcification are cardiovascular can help our efforts to prevent complications, a relationship with periodontal disease the importance of regular monitoring supports. In addition to phosphorus binders, vitamin D agonists and calcimimetics in the future is expected to be the resorption inhibitor denosumab, the bone-building processes supporting PTH analogues and the wider clinical use of romosozumab application.]

[Threshold for drug treatment of hypertension target values ​​in the most important therapeutic guidelines]

KÉKES Ede, NAGY Judit, VÁLYI Péter

[Start medication and choose the right target are crucial today - with the aging of the world’s population together - the occurrence of high blood pressure, which is clearly considered a public disease in order to curb it. This also means that the recommendations are justified age-disaggregated and segregated between 18 and 65 years old, the elderly and the very elderly hypertensives. In the latter, it is not just prevalence rate has increased significantly, but also to be reckoned with the incidence of cognitive dysfunction, physical inactivity and common comorbidities, and also with side effects due to polypragmatism. We show it with all this in mind recommendations for the most important guidelines for the treatment of hypertension - also the Hungarian Hypertension Society -, pointing to the corresponding / similar guidelines.]

[A well-designed blood collection site is suitable for hemodialysis (HD-) treatment basis. Even today, kidney replacement therapy is one of the biggest the challenge is to design the right place to bleed and its - during regular HD treatments - long-term preservation. If the previously established blood collection site is bad functioning, removal of uraemic end products would be insufficient the patient’s uraemic condition worsens and his typical symptoms develop Who. In case all is already possible blood site was exhausted, then hemodialysis itself nor can it be sustained further, which is rarely even kidney failure it can also lead to the death of a patient. Hemodialysis patients are hospitalized uptake is more than 20% related to the site of blood collection complications.]

Evaluation of the effectiveness of transforaminal epidural steroid injection in far lateral lumbar disc herniations

EVRAN Sevket, KATAR Salim

Far lateral lumbar disc herniations (FLDH) consist approximately 0.7-12% of all lumbar disc herniations. Compared to the more common central and paramedian lumbar disc herniations, they cause more severe and persistent radicular pain due to direct compression of the nerve root and dorsal root ganglion. In patients who do not respond to conservative treatments such as medical treatment and physical therapy, and have not developed neurological deficits, it is difficult to decide on surgical treatment because of the nerve root damage and spinal instability risk due to disruption of facet joint integrity. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the effect of transforaminal epidural steroid injection (TFESI) on the improvement of both pain control and functional capacity in patients with FLDH. A total of 37 patients who had radicular pain caused by far lateral disc herniation which is visible in their lumbar magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, had no neurological deficit and did not respond to conservative treatment, were included the study. TFESI was applied to patients by preganglionic approach. Pre-treatment Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) scores of the patients were compared with the 3rd week, 3rd month and 6th month scores after the procedure. The mean initial VAS score was 8.63 ± 0.55, while it was 3.84 ± 1.66, 5.09 ± 0.85, 4.56 ± 1.66 at the 3rd week, 3rd month and 6th month controls, respectively. This decrease in the VAS score was found statistically significant (p = 0.001). ODI score with baseline mean value of 52.38 ± 6.84 was found to be 18.56 ± 4.95 at the 3rd week, 37.41 ± 14.1 at the 3rd month and 34.88 ± 14.33 at the 6th month. This downtrend of pa­tient’s ODI scores was found statistically significant (p = 0.001). This study has demonstrated that TFESI is an effective method for gaining increased functional capacity and pain control in the treatment of patients who are not suitable for surgical treatment with radicular complaints due to far lateral lumbar disc hernia.

[The Comprehensive Aphasia Test in Hungarian]

ZAKARIÁS Lilla, RÓZSA Sándor, LUKÁCS Ágnes

[In this paper we present the Comprehensive Aphasia Test-Hungarian (CAT-H; Zakariás and Lukács, in preparation), an assessment tool newly adapted to Hungarian, currently under standardisation. The test is suitable for the assessment of an acquired language disorder, post-stroke aphasia. The aims of this paper are to present 1) the main characteristics of the test, its areas of application, and the process of the Hungarian adaptation and standardisation, 2) the first results from a sample of Hungarian people with aphasia and healthy controls. Ninety-nine people with aphasia, mostly with unilateral, left hemisphere stroke, and 19 neurologically intact control participants were administered the CAT-H. In addition, we developed a questionnaire assessing demographic and clinical information. The CAT-H consists of two parts, a Cognitive Screening Test and a Language Test. People with aphasia performed significantly worse than the control group in all language and almost all cognitive subtests of the CAT-H. Consistent with our expectations, the control group performed close to ceiling in all subtests, whereas people with aphasia exhibited great individual variability both in the language and the cognitive subtests. In addition, we found that age, time post-onset, and type of stroke were associated with cognitive and linguistic abilities measured by the CAT-H. Our results and our experiences clearly show that the CAT-H provides a comprehensive profile of a person’s impaired and intact language abilities and can be used to monitor language recovery as well as to screen for basic cognitive deficits in aphasia. We hope that the CAT-H will be a unique resource for rehabilitation professionals and aphasia researchers in aphasia assessment and diagnostics in Hungary. ]

Comparison of direct costs of percutaneous full-endoscopic interlaminar lumbar discectomy and microdiscectomy: Results from Turkey

ÜNSAL Ünlü Ülkün, ŞENTÜRK Salim

Microdiscectomy (MD) is a stan­dard technique for the surgical treatment of lumbar disc herniation (LDH). Uniportal percutaneous full-endoscopic in­terlaminar lumbar discectomy (PELD) is another surgical op­tion that has become popular owing to reports of shorter hos­pitalization and earlier functional recovery. There are very few articles analyzing the total costs of these two techniques. The purpose of this study was to compare total hospital costs among microdiscectomy (MD) and uniportal percutaneous full-endoscopic interlaminar lumbar discectomy (PELD). Forty patients aged between 22-70 years who underwent PELD or MD with different anesthesia techniques were divided into four groups: (i) PELD-local anesthesia (PELD-Local) (n=10), (ii) PELD-general anesthesia (PELD-General) (n=10), (iii) MD-spinal anesthesia (MD-Spinal) (n=10), (iv) MD-general anesthesia (MD-General) (n=10). Health care costs were defined as the sum of direct costs. Data were then analyzed based on anesthetic modality to produce a direct cost evaluation. Direct costs were compared statistically between MD and PELD groups. The sum of total costs was $1,249.50 in the PELD-Local group, $1,741.50 in the PELD-General group, $2,015.60 in the MD-Spinal group, and $2,348.70 in the MD-General group. The sum of total costs was higher in the MD-Spinal and MD-General groups than in the PELD-Local and PELD-General groups. The costs of surgical operation, surgical equipment, anesthesia (anesthetist’s costs), hospital stay, anesthetic drugs and materials, laboratory wor­kup, nur­sing care, and postoperative me­dication diffe­red significantly among the two main groups (PELD-MD) (p<0.01). This study demonstrated that PELD is less costly than MD.

[A short chronicle of three decades ]

KAPRONCZAY Katalin

[Hungarian professional periodicals started quite late in European context. Their publish­ing, editing and editorial philosophy were equally influenced by specific historical and political situations. Certain breaking points of history resulted in termina­tion of professional journals (War of In­de­pendence 1848-1849, First and Se­cond World Wars), however there were pe­riods, which instigated the progress of sciences and founding of new scientific journals. Both trends were apparent in years after the fall of former Hungarian regime in 1990. The structure of book and journal publishing has changed substantially, some publishers fell “victim” others started successfully as well. The latters include the then-established publishing house Literatura Medica and its own scientific journal, Lege Artis Me­di­cinae (according to its subtitle: New Hun­garian Medical Herald) issued first in 1990. Its appearance enhanced significantly the medical press market. Its scientific publications compete with articles of the well-established domestic medical journals however its philosophy set brand-new trends on the market. Concerning the medical community, it takes on its problems and provides a forum for them. These problems are emerging questions in health care, economy and prevention, in close interrelation with system of public health institutions, infrastructure and situation of those providing individual health services. In all of them, Lege Artis Medicinae follows consequently the ideas of traditional social medicine.]
