[Blood pressure variability and its clinical importance]

KÉKES Ede, VÁLYI Péter

[The 24-hour and longer-term (weeks, months, years) as well as seasonal, regional variations and fluctuations of blood pressure have been known for long time in both normotensive and hypertensive patients. It is also well known and established that blood pressure variability is greater in patients with more severe hypertension and in the elderly population.

[Options for assessing the quality of postoperative pain relief: multidimensional measurement tools]

LOVASI Orsolya, GAÁL Péter, LÉBER Andrea, LÁM Judit

[Inadequat treatment of postoperative pain may have several adverse consequences. Its effective and efficient management requires regular pain assessments with valid and re­liable pain assessment tools. The main features of unidimensional pain assessment scales were discussed in our previous paper. Their most important disadvantage is that they measure only the pain intensity, which did not necessarily provide sufficient and re­liable basis for clinical decision making. The main goal of this... tovább »

[B-cell depletion in the therapy of mulitple sclerosis: ofatumumab is a new player]

PUKOLI Dániel, VÉCSEI László

[Research results in recent years have demonstrated that B-lymphocytes play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS). The increased understanding of the disease process has resulted in the development of B cell-targeting antibodies as potential drugs for both relapsing and progressive forms of MS. Therefore, B-cell depletion therapies are becoming more prominent and determining in reducing disease progression. The first B-cell depleting anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody was... tovább »

REM sleep, REM parasomnias, REM sleep behaviour disorder

SZÛCS Anna , MUTTI Carlotta, PAPP Anikó, HALÁSZ Péter, PARRINO Liborio

We review the literature on REM parasomnias, and their the underlying mechanisms. Several REM parasomnias are consistent with sleep dissociations, where certain elements of the REM sleep pattern emerge in an inadequate time (sleep paralysis, hypnagogic hallucinations and cataplexy) or are absent/partial in their normal REM sleep time (REM sleep without atonia, underlying REM sleep behavior disorder). The rest of REM parasomnias (sleep related painful erection, catathrenia) may have other... tovább »

NAGY Péter , CSERHÁTI Helga , ROSDY Beáta , BODÓ Tímea, HEGYI Márta , SZAMOSÚJVÁRI Judit , FOGARASI Joseph Dominic , FOGARASI András

Over the past year, many cases with newly onset or significantly exacerbated tic disorders were observed worldwide, where some aspects of the clinical presentation or the symptomatology were atypical for established tic diagnoses. Our purpose was to describe the atypical cases and raise relevant diagnostic issues. Consecutive cases with atypical tic presentations were documented. Five atypical tic cases are described. These cases shared some common characteristics, most notably the fact that... tovább »
