[The role of computer tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in organic neurological diagnosis]

KENÉZ József

[In the last two decades, neuroimaging became the basic investigative method in the diagnostics of organic neurology due to the rapid development of medical electronics. In the nineties called the "Decade of the Brain", the importance of these methods could hardly bee overestimated. The two outstanding investigations of neuroimaging are computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MR). Surely in the near future the application of these investigations will be incorporated in the... tovább »

[Awareness of hypoglycaemia in diabetes mellitus: Prospective clinical-epidemiological investigations]

KERÉNYI Zsuzsa, TAMÁS Gyula, KEMPLER Péter, VARGHA Péter

[In order to survey the frequency of hypoglycaemia and its awareness we investigated 91 insulin- treated diabetic women (48 pregnant and 43 non-pregnant) consecutively using 9 to 15 blood glucose measurements. Subjective hypoglycaemic symptoms of patients were registered by using a structured questionnaire. Biochemically proved hypoglycaemia has been found in two third of patients (62/91). One third of the patients had a loss of awareness, 23 had partial awareness and 19 were aware of... tovább »

NAGY Zsolt, HOLOMAY Miklós, VASZILY Miklós, SZÉCSI János, HORVÁTH Ambrus, PÉTERFFY Árpád

[Between November 1986. and June 1989. five patients underwent excision of an atrial tumour. Two of the patients had previous peripheral embolization, two had cardiac symptoms and one was symptomless. All the tumours were demonstrated by means of echocardiography and in four cases by angiocardiography as well. Four of them were left atrial tumors and one in the right atrium. The tumors were succesfully removed in all patients: in three cases by shaving them from the endocardium, in one case by... tovább »

[Hypothesis of natural birth]

BÁLINT Sándor

[It's supposed by the author that there exists a natural birth. According to his assumption in every woman's subconscionsness there is the code of the natural birth's behaviour (CODE), which can be spontaneously mobilized in the gravid woman. Putting into practice whichever way for the preparation of the birth, this mobilization can be advanced and in this way the child-bearing women's behaving repertory during their birth is increasing and it's drawing near to the equivalent of its own code.... tovább »

[Report on gastroenterological endoscopic activity in Hungary in 1989]

NAGY György, JUHÁSZ László

[The Endoscopic Section of the Hungarian Gastroenterological Society, under the leadership of Professor Wittmann, published an annual report on the status and development of endoscopy of the digestive organs in Hungary from 1975.

[Can the health sector be transformed?]

GIDAI Erzsébet

[The health sector has been a stepchild of the budget for decades and, as our economic situation deteriorates, it is one of the most disadvantaged sectors, as is the human sector as a whole. The 1991 budget also creates a worse basis than in previous years, as the Social Insurance Fund (SIF), which has financed health since 1990, creates a deficit for the sector in the new year. ]

[Public life in medicine]

FRENKL Róbert

[The MOTESZ General Assembly of 15 December 1990 was not only a success in comparison with the previous ones, but also in relation to itself and the goals it set. According to cynics, the survival of the organisation is an unexpected achievement, but it is much more than that. Perhaps it was only before the event that the prominent figures of the various professions had really given some honest thought to the need for this structure. The well-prepared event was a success thanks to their largely... tovább »

[The count, the count drowned, or the debate on the social security budget in the Parliamentary Committee]

ANDRÁS László

[It is a peculiar, but familiar journalistic task for newspapers "condemned to a long print run" to report on the preparatory work of events - in this case, turnovers - in such a way that the interested public can already know the outcome from the daily papers: the miracle or mouse that the mountains were in labour before the eyes of the correspondent. Perhaps it is not uninteresting to learn about the debates, the ideas and the institutional, political and personal conflicts - often more... tovább »

[The "Hippocratic" oath]

BALLÉR Piroska

[Hippocrates - the oldest embodiment of the medical ideal, the ideal doctor: last year we commemorated the 2450th anniversary of his birth. Already Plato mentions him several times as a famous and respected physician (1); and as the centuries have passed, Hippocrates has become first an absolute authority, then a great ancestor and symbol. As time went by, less and less is known of him - and the medical writings bearing his name proliferated.]

[Galienus and Ipocras]

ZENTAI Lóránd

[On the front cover: as indicated by the inscriptions above their heads, "Galienus" and "Ipocras", and the different shapes of the medicinal vessels, are the "images" of two of the greatest figures of ancient medicine, Hippocrates and Galenos. The double 'portrait', which adorns the altarpiece of the medieval cathedral of Anagni, a small Italian town near Rome, was painted around 1250 and, in keeping with the style of painting and iconographic tradition of the time, depicts the Greek physicians... tovább »

[Old hose]

NEMES Balázs

[Oh, gentle reader, who turns these pages of the "Immature medicus", perhaps you are one of those who are not yet dead from TEMPUS. Not many are familiar with the word, except in the compound "tempora mutantur". But TEMPUS is not catchy, although it is fleeting: it is a five-year programme to support the transformation of higher education. ]
