[Diagnosis and treatment of acute obstetrical DIC]

RÁKÓCZI István

[Modern management of acut obstetrical diffuse intravascular coagulation (DIC) was evaluated. A large variety of obstetrical conditions are associated with acute DIC such as amniotic fluid embolism, abruptio placentae, intrauterine infection (septic abortion), dead fetus syndrome and prolonged shock of any aetiology. Typically, acute obstetrical DIC is associated with haemorrhage (mainly vaginal bleeding) and shock. The whole blood coagulation time, platelet count and fibrinogen level are the... tovább »

[Disseminated intravascular coagulation in the newborn]

GOLDSCHMIDT Béla

[A review is given on disseminated intravascular coagulation in the newborn period. DIC is not a single disease entity, but a complication of several underlying diseases. The author summarizes the physiologic and pathophysiologic conditions which promote the development of this blood coagulation disorder in this age. Further on the clinical symptoms, the difficulties of laboratory analysis as well as of differential diagnosis are discussed. Finally a detailed description of the treatment of the... tovább »

[The risk of ischemic heart disease in patients with ischemic cerebrovascular disease]

HORVÁTH Sándor

[A strong association is supported between ichemic cerebrovascular and heart diseases by several studies. Death is more commonly caused by myocardial infarction than by stroke itself in patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis, amaurosis fugax, transient ischemic attack or ischemic stroke. Signs and symptoms of ischemic cerebrovascular diseases or asymptomatic atherosclerosis of the arteries of the neck are harbinger for both myocardial and cerebrovascular infarction. Patients suffering from... tovább »

[Results and perspective of gene therapy in the treatment of primary immunodeficiency]

SÓFI Gyula, MARÓDI László

[During the last decade research has been directed toward gene-replacement therapy of genetic disorders, including primary immunodeficiencies. Efficient methods for gene transfer were developed to correct the gene defect in adenosine desaminase deficiency, leukocyte adhesion deficiency and chronic granulomatous disease. Somatic gene therapy in a patient with ADA deficiency was performed two years ago. This paper summaries inicial clinical applications of gene transfer and gene therapy in... tovább »

[Third International Study of Infarct Survival]

MATOS Lajos

[There was no significant difference in 35-day mortality between the aspirin + heparin and aspirin-only groups. The incidence of re-infarction was slightly lower with aspirin plus heparin (2p <0.09). When patients also received heparin in addition to aspirin, transfusion was needed more often and non-cerebral haemorrhage was more frequent (2p < 0.01) Combining the results of ISIS-3 and GISSI-2, mortality was significantly reduced during the treatment period (p < 0.01). There was no appreciable... tovább »

[The physiological and pathophysiological role of selenium]

TARKOVÁCS Gábor

[ Recent research and clinical observations have made the topic of the relationship between trace elements and free radical reactions, the unavoidable corollary of aerobic life, come to the fore. Based on the data of more recent literature, the author attempts to provide a concise review of the biological function of selenium, one of the trace elements, and emphasizes some aspects of its clinical importance. Selenium, being an essential component of selenium dependent glutathi one peroxidase... tovább »

[The role of computed tomography in the diagnosis of bronchiectasis]

STAUSZ János, MONOSTORI Zsuzsanna, REPA Imre

[The aim of the study was to determine the role of the computer tomography in the recognition of bronchiectasis. 17 patients with clinically suspected bronchiectasis were investigated with high resolution computer tomography. In every case the bronchiectasis was recog nized by computer tomography. In 7 cases either bronchography and/or the surgical specimen confirmed the diagnosis. The effectiveness and the non-invasive characteristics of the computer tomography further limit the indication of... tovább »

[A new ultrasound method for the examination of the circulation: color velocity imaging (CVI)]

HARKÁNYI Zoltán, DANIEL Morton, JI-BIN Liu, BARRY B. Goldberg

[The newest ultrasound method for the exa mination of the peripheral and abdominal vessels is Color Velocity Imaging (CVI) or time domain correlation method. In contrast to the widely accepted color Doppler imaging technique CVI is based on a different principle. Blood flow velocity is displayed using time-shift measurement ins tead of frequency-shift. This paper is brief summary of the principle of CVI method with a special emphasis on the new features. Improved special color resolution,... tovább »

[Inpatient psychotherapy as a psychotherapeutic system]

BLÜMEL Ferenc

[The problems of inpatient psychotherapy as a psychotherapeutic system should be worked out extra as a special therapeutic method among psychotherapeutic approaches. The integrated conception of inpatient psychotherapy developed through coordinating different approaches. That means the adaptation of psychoanalytical and sociopsychological theories of diseases and therapies. With its help a group of therapists do psychotherapy with group of patients, where different therapeutic methods are put... tovább »

[APSIM]

MATOS Lajos

[The rate of artery reopening leading to infarction was 77% after APSAC treatment and 36% after heparin (p < 0.001). The left ventricular ejection fraction was significantly higher in the APSAC group (0.53 + 0.13) than after heparin (0.47 + 0.12, p<0.002) and this was true for both anterior and posterior wall infarcts. APSAC treatment also significantly reduced infarct size by 31%. There was a strong inverse correlation between left ventricular ejection fraction and infarct size (p < 0.01). At... tovább »

[Sports sports medicine medical training]

FRENKL Róbert

[We who have lived most of our lives in the 20th century must slowly and inevitably face the fact that man, with all the means at his disposal to the contrary, or perhaps because of it, has made this period a terrible century in history. Sadly, despite the glimmer of hope in the late 1980s, there is little likelihood today that the last decade will make a significant difference to the century's balance sheet.]

LÁSZLÓ András

[For those of you who have never been to the LAM Club - those who have been to the Hotel Agro will know that the large fifth-floor terrace of the restaurant offers a more beautiful and spacious view of Budapest and the Buda Hills than you could imagine. It's quiet, the smoke, dirt and noise of the city don't reach here anymore, only occasionally a Csepel truck or an Ikarus bus wanders by and breaks the silence, spewing its stench. It's good that they come, without them we would imagine... tovább »

ANDRÁS László

[Lecture by András Jávor, State Secretary - especially for doctors visiting from abroad at the III Hungarian Medical Meeting; The health status of the Hungarian population is incredibly lagging behind the developed regions of Europe. It is very sad, but it is a fact that other countries in Central and Eastern Europe are facing similar problems. In the 1960s, it became known in Hungary that average life expectancy at birth was decreasing and that the number of illnesses was rising in certain... tovább »

[Ethical principles of modern medicine]

[The analysis and discussion of ethical issues plays an increasingly important role in modern medical thinking and practice. Although ethical issues have been raised in medicine for a very long time and have influenced its development, their study has not yet been carried out in an organised, institutional framework. Today's medical technology and its consequences have forced us to pay greater attention to ethical issues, particularly in the fields of infant medicine, geriatrics and organ... tovább »

[Slowed horse watching]

SZŐKE Annamária

[Bertalan Székely's studies of movement; When writing about art in a medical journal, the first thought is often that the relationship between these two sciences, their interrelationship, their possible effects on each other, is worth looking for. Sciences, I write in connection with the Renaissance tradition, especially the Leonardian idea that art is a science if it deals with the laws and ultimate principles of visible things.]

[The history of the development of physical education and physical culture in Hungary]

KAPRONCZAY Károly

[The importance of physical education was recognised in ancient Greece and Rome. The importance of regular exercise was passed on to later ages - it was considered important in the Middle Ages - not to mention the Renaissance, which not coincidentally became the heyday of anatomy, the basic science of physical culture.]
