The MMPI was administered to 36 male low back pain patients at the Seattle Veterans Administration Hospital. The patients were divided into three groups of 12 each. The organic group contained patients who had an organic basis for their pain. The functional group contained patients who had no organic basis for their pain. The mixed group contained patients(More)
The feasibility of using psychological tests to predict patient drop-outs from an alcohol treatment program was studied. Eighty-four alcoholic male veterans being treated in an inpatient program were administrered the Rotter Locus of Control scale (I-E) and the MMPI-168 at the beginning of the treatment. Those patients who completed an 8 week inpatient(More)
Conventional cell culture methods were compared with a direct immunofluorescence test (MicroTrak, Syva UK, Maidenhead, Berkshire) to detect Chlamydia trachomatis in 137 patients (126 women, 11 men) attending a sexually transmitted diseases (STD) clinic. Results obtained by the two tests agreed in 87.6% of cases. Of 34 positive specimens, 17 were detected by(More)
A retrospective review was made of 30 patients who had failed multiple traditional surgical procedures for low-back pain, sciatic pain, or both. The most common cause of the poor results appeared to be failure of initial selection, even though all patients appeared to meet traditional indications for operative intervention. Psychosocial problems (eg, drug(More)
The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory was administered to 47 male patients on the Renal Dialysis Unit at the Seattle VA Hospital. The patients were divided into three survival groups for comparison. Group A died within 1 year of initiating dialysis. Group B had been alive on dialysis between 3 and 7 years, while group C had been alive between 7(More)
Assessed the utility of the Faschingbauer Abbreviated MMPI (FAM) and MMPI-168 for use with the elderly. FAM and MMPI-168 items were extracted from the MMPIs of 24 older male veteran medical or alcoholic patients. The results indicate that both abbreviated forms are highly correlated with and yield similar diagnostic inferences to the standard MMPI. For this(More)
The MMPI profiles of 74 low back pain patients who had previously been classified as "functional,""organic," or "mixed" were sorted into six profile groups. The six profile groups were those used by Pichot, Perse, Lekous, Dureau, Perez, and Rychewaert (1972); denial, "conversion V" without defensiveness, "conversion V" with defensiveness, depressed/anxious,(More)
There is a need to examine the usefulness of an abbreviated form of the MMPI with alcoholic patients. The Faschingbauer Abbreviated MMPI (FAM) was administered to 225 male alcoholics. The correlations between the T-scores for the FAM and their full MMPI counterparts ranged from .761 to .919. Examination of the high-point code for each FAM-MMPI pair yielded(More)
