[BACKGROUND - The anatomy and pathology are the most outstanding field of the medical curriculum. These subjects mean the first practical experiences of dissection. The international literatures results shows that experience of dissection are important stages of becoming physician, but not always problemless. METHODS - Quantative (n=733) and qualitative (n=45) exploratory research among Hungarian medical students. We tried to present the effects and experiences of dissection pratcise using both analytical methods. Validity of the research was greatly improved by using the two methods. RESULTS - 50% of medical students reported that they were affected by dissection practice. The female students and those in clinical training (III-VI.years) reported about negative effects significantly more frequently. The results of the qualitative survey verified that dissection practices have decisive effect during the training and coping with experiences was often difficult especially for females students. CONCLUSIONS - Our research confirmed the hypothesis of dissection experiences play outstanding role in becoming physician. The successful coping isn’t the repression or ignorance of emotion, but understanding and finding effective solutions strategies for the negative emotions of experiences. Managing these experiences are a crucial factor of latter wellbeing of physicians and decisive factor of doctors-patient relationship.]

[Vitamin D plays an important role in several pathways in humans. Its relation with several diseases has been previously de­scribed. Vitamin D deficiency affects al­most the full population on temperate zone at the end of the winter. Recommendations on vitamin D supplementation are inconsistent and there are only a few data about the efficacy of cholecalcipherol given not in daily manner. In the present paper, we examine the different administration mo­dalities, and their efficacy in increasing serum vitamin D levels. High doses administered rarely appear to be equally efficient and safe compared to low doses provided frequently.]

[Dissections of the supraaortic arteries]

CSEH Tamás, SZUKITS Sándor, SZAPÁRY László

[Dissection of the cervical and intracranial vasculature is a rare but important cause of ischaemic stroke especially in young adults. In the majority of cases it affects the extracranial vessels, mostly the internal carotid artery. It might be categorized as spontaneous or traumatic, causing diverse clinical symptoms. Dissection might lead to ipsilateral stroke mainly by artery-to-artery embolisation. Due to its relative rarity compared to the classic ischaemic stroke of the elderly, there are much less clinically relevant information for the clinician to rely on. Several large, randomised, multicentered, prospective studies and some smaller, retrospective analyses have been published recently concerning the genetic background, epidemiology, acute care and secondary prevention of supraaortic arterial dissection which helps the neurologist to provide evidence-based care for his patient. Our aim is to give a short, up-to-date overview of arterial dissections with two case reports.]

[THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE DEPRESSIVE MOOD OF PARENTS AND THE BEHAVIOURAL PROBLEMS OF THE CHILD]

HAJNAL Ágnes, SUSÁNSZKY Éva, SZÁNTÓ Zsuzsa, CSOBOTH Csilla

[INTRODUCTION - In this article we analyze the relationships between behavior problems of adolescents and depressed mood of their parents based on literature review and on our own questionnaire surveys. METHODS - We present the data from two surveys conducted among Hungarian adolescents. The first survey was conducted among 1604 young women students, aged of 15-19 years. The second survey included 502 high school students in Budapest. Both surveys were aimed at the lifestyle, health behavior, risk behavior, and emotional state, as well as the social-economic status and family background of the adolescents. Data of both surveys were analyzed using the SPSS 8.0 statistical program package. The association between the mood category of mothers and fathers and the risk factors and emotional state indicators of their children were tested with χ2 tests, as well as the indicators of students whose parents were not treated for depression. RESULTS - Data from both surveys suggest that there are close relationships between the negative mood states of the parents and the behavior problems of their children, especially between the mood of mothers and the behavioral and emotional state of daughters. CONCLUSIONS - Our research data call attention to the phenomenon that girls react explicitly and quite sensitively to the mood state of their mothers while the boys’ behavioral and emotional states are less responsive to their parents’ mood. On the other hand, boys react more intensively to the emotional instability of their fathers than to the instability of their mothers.]
