[Pituitary adenomas].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Klinik für Neurochirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Tübingen, Hoppe-Seyler-Straße 3, 72076, Tübingen, Deutschland.

Despite characteristic symptoms the diagnosis of clinically relevant pituitary adenomas is often delayed until an advanced stage due to the rarity of the disease. The typical clinical manifestations are presented in this review article. The recent discovery of the USP8 mutation in Cushing's disease and of X‑linked acrogigantism (X-LAG) syndrome in early onset gigantism were milestones in the search for the molecular etiology of pituitary adenomas.

[The CIMH track concept in the treatment of psychotic disorders].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Klinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Zentralinstitut für Seelische Gesundheit, Medizinische Fakultät Mannheim, Universität Heidelberg, J5, 68159, Mannheim, Deutschland.

The treatment of psychotic disorders and illnesses is a challenge for therapists and institutions due to the heterogeneity of the cause and course, refractory symptoms, lack of therapy adherence and high rates of relapse. These circumstances can be effectively counteracted by the flexibility of therapeutic approaches and settings. A useful but rarely used concept is the treatment of psychoses within the so-called track unit. Read More

[ADHD screening in alcohol dependent subjects : Psychometric characteristics of ADHD self-report scale and Wender Utah Rating Scale short form].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

MEDIAN Klinik Wilhelmsheim, Oppenweiler, Deutschland.

Background: Routine screening using self report questionnaires for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in patients with alcohol use disorder is recommended due to its high prevalence and the time-consuming and demanding diagnostic assessment. The psychometric properties of such self-report instruments have hardly been investigated in this patient group.

Methods: The performance of the ADHD self-report scale (ADHD-SR) and the German short form of the Wender Utah Rating Scale (WURS-k) was determined in 402 patients with alcohol dependence during long-term residential weaning treatment. Read More

[Autoantibody-associated schizophreniform psychoses: clinical symptomatology].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Sektion für experimentelle Neuropsychiatrie, Klinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universitätsklinikum Freiburg, Medizinische Fakultät, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Hauptstr. 5, 79104, Freiburg, Deutschland.

According to present concepts, primary psychotic disorders in the schizophrenia spectrum are probably caused by a complex interaction between multigenetic vulnerability and causally relevant environmental factors. In contrast, secondary psychotic disorders are the result of likely identifiable organic factors either in terms of a first causation (etiology) or a secondary cause (pathogenesis). In this context, autoantibody(ab)-associated autoimmune encephalitis (AE) plays an increasingly important role. Read More

[Folic acid and vitamin B12 determination in the assessment of cognitive disorders : Overview and data analysis from a university outpatient memory clinic].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universitätsklinikum Carl Gustav Carus, Technische Universität Dresden, Fetscherstr. 74, 01307, Dresden, Deutschland.

Vitamin B12 and folic acid deficiencies are particularly frequent conditions in older people. Since these metabolic disorders represent relevant dyscognitive factors, the assessment of vitamin B12 and folic acid levels is essential in the diagnostic approach of cognitive disorders, such as mild cognitive impairment and dementia in an outpatient memory clinic. This article summarizes the relevant diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of vitamin B12 and folic acid deficiencies and their effects on cognition. Read More

[The "popular saint" Therese of Konnersreuth and her stigmata : An historical example for the interaction of psyche and religiosity].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Abteilung für Psychosomatische Medizin, Universitätsklinikum Regensburg, Universität Regensburg, Franz-Josef-Strauß-Allee 11, 93053, Regensburg, Deutschland.

Background: In present times, we see ourselves confronted by the challenge of engaging increasingly diverse views of the world, god and healing in a constructive dialogue. Consequently, it is important to research into the contrary effects of religiosity on the human psyche.

Methods: Original- and literary medical historian research RESULTS: Gottfried Ewald (1888-1963), a psychiatric expert at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen, was appointed 90 years ago with the task of examining Therese Neumann (1898-1962), colloquially known as Resl of Konnersreuth.

[Mechanical ventilation in neurological organizational units in Germany].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Carl-von-Ossietzky-Universität Oldenburg, Oldenburg, Deutschland.

Background: Mechanical ventilation is provided for neurological patients in the following settings: in neurointensive care units, in centers providing weaning and early rehabilitation and in home mechanical ventilation. In the last decade there has been a sharp rise in treatment and bed capacities for mechanically ventilated neurological patients in specialized centers in Germany in the areas of weaning and neurological neurosurgical early rehabilitation of ventilated patients. Neither the number of beds nor details about structures in these centers with respect to bed capacity, personnel and qualifications, equipment, treatment methods and concepts are known. Read More

[Motivational interviewing : A possibility for doctor-patient communication in schizophrenia?]

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Psychiatrie, Psychotherapie und Psychosomatik, Vivantes Klinikum am Urban, Berlin, Deutschland.

Motivational interviewing (MI) has become established nowadays as an approach for a cooperative style of conversation to promote intrinsic motivation for change by exploring and resolving ambivalences. The change of addictive behavior is no longer sought by exerting pressure or lecturing/converting attempts of convincing or persuasion but by activating existing but "buried" or newly acquired self-motivation to change. The MI is now also used to change the treatment of other health-related behavior and chronic diseases, including schizophrenic disorders. Read More

[Analysis of risk factors, etiology and treatment standard of lithium poisoning].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universitätsklinikum Carl Gustav Carus, Technische Universität Dresden, Fetscherstr. 74, 01307, Dresden, Deutschland.

Despite unlimited access to therapeutic drug monitoring lithium poisoning is still a common and potentially life-threatening but in most cases preventable complication of lithium treatment; however, it is still considered to be the gold standard in the treatment of affective disorders. The necessity of drug monitoring and potential lithium toxicity substantiate the skepticism of many therapists with respect to this often very effective treatment. This therefore limits the use of lithium although the unique therapeutic effects and high efficiency are well known. Read More

[Track treatment in psychiatry: the CIMH track model to overcome sector boundaries].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Zentralinstitut für Seelische Gesundheit, Fakultät für Medizin Mannheim, Universität Heidelberg, J5, 68159, Mannheim, Deutschland.

The overall conditions for the treatment of patients with psychiatric disorders have changed and place new demands on therapy concepts and procedures. This concerns both the legal conditions of the treatment as well as the content and economic conditions for a patient-oriented diagnostic work-up and therapy. The Central Institute for Mental Health (CIMH) in Mannheim is currently implementing a track concept that takes these changes into account and aims to overcome sectoral boundaries in favor of treatment continuity.

[Atypical intracerebral hemorrhage-etiology and acute management].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr;90(4):423-441

Neurologische Klinik, Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Deutschland.

Acute management as well as establishing the etiology of an intracerebral hemorrhage is still a challenge for clinicians. The location of the intracerebral hemorrhage alone should not be used to determine the cause because atypically located hemorrhages can be caused by long-standing arterial hypertension and typically located hemorrhages can occur due to non-hypertensive causes. Besides discussing the classification of intracerebral hemorrhages, this article focuses on a diagnostic algorithm as well as the presentation of potential (rarer) causes of non-traumatic intracerebral hemorrhages.

[Ability to drive with cerebrovascular diseases : Position paper of the German societies DGNB, DGN, DGNC, DGNR, DSG and GNP].

Nervenarzt 2019 Apr;90(4):388-398

Neurowissenschaftliche Gutachtenstelle, Bezirkskrankenhaus Günzburg, Günzburg, Deutschland.

The regulations for ability to drive with cerebrovascular diseases in the German Driving License Regulations (Fahrerlaubnisverordnung, FeV) and German Guidelines for the Evaluation of Driving Ability of the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) are not up to date with the current medical knowledge and are not consistent with comparable regulations regarding cardiovascular diseases. This is particularly true for the assessment of future risks for a sudden loss of control during driving. The present position paper of six medical and neuropsychological societies in Germany presents the current conditions for the assessment of driving ability of patients a cerebrovascular diesease and recommends an estimation of the ability to drive founded on the current state of scientific knowledge.

Nervenarzt 2019 Feb;90(2):99-106

Institut für Humangenetik, Universitätsklinikum Bonn, Sigmund-Freud-Str. 25, 53127, Bonn, Deutschland.

A long-established hypothesis is that genetic factors contribute to the development of psychiatric diseases, including common illnesses such as schizophrenia and the affective disorders; however, reliable molecular identification of these factors represents a far more recent innovation. This has been rendered possible by technological advances in the individual characterization of the human genome and the combining of large genetic datasets at the international level. For the first time, the results of genome-wide analyses provide researchers with systematic insights into disease-relevant biological mechanisms. Read More

Klinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universitätsklinikum Münster, Universität Münster, Albert-Schweitzer-Campus 1, Geb. A9, 48149, Münster, Deutschland.

Depression is one of the most frequent and disabling mental disorders worldwide and is accompanied by a severe impairment in the quality of life. There are numerous imaging studies showing differences in the volume of gray and white brain matter and function between patients suffering from depression and healthy controls. Neuroimaging studies show that pharmacotherapy and electroconvulsive therapy are accompanied by an increase of hippocampal gray matter volume while as a result of psychotherapy activity changes in the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) have repeatedly been reported.

[Epidemic of depression? : Development of prevalence and help-seeking behaviour].

Nervenarzt 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Psychologische Hochschule Berlin, Berlin, Deutschland.

Background: While national health insurance companies in Germany have reported increasing frequencies of depression and growing costs since the first reports approximately 20 years ago, the prevalence from epidemiological field studies has remained stable in the general population. This study examined time trends in help-seeking behaviour for depression based on data from the German health monitoring programme at the Robert Koch Institute.

Methods: Data were obtained from the mental health module of the German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Adults (DEGS1-MH, 2009-2012, 18-65 years, n = 3320) and the mental health supplement of the German National Health Interview and Examination Survey 1998 (GHS-MHS, 1997-1999; 18-65 years, n = 4181).

[Acceptance, demand, reasons for consultation and outcome of counseling on epilepsy in Hesse and Lower Franconia].

Epilepsiezentrum Frankfurt Rhein-Main, Zentrum der Neurologie und Neurochirurgie, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, Schleusenweg 2-16, 60528, Frankfurt am Main, Deutschland.

Background And Aim: The diagnosis of epilepsy is often accompanied by relevant restrictions for patients, which may result in disease-specific daily problems that need targeted and professional counseling. Specialized epilepsy counseling services (ECS) were introduced in some German states since 1996 to provide an additional and independent service for epilepsy-related problems. The objective of this prospective, multicenter cohort study at six ECS was to determine and analyze the acceptance, demand and frequent reasons for consultation in Hesse and Lower Franconia.

The handling of predictive genetic tests especially in the field of mental diseases requires a sensitive approach. In particular internet-based direct-to-consumer offers cannot provide an appropriate interpretation of the onset probabilistic data. Instead, a doctor-patient relationship should cater for clarity through hermeneutic and non-technicistic assistance with respect to the necessity of a test as well as with a view to the interpretation of the test results.
