Correlates of parents' ratings of behavioural problems were explored in a sample of 93 British families, in which mothers and fathers rated their children at the time of the fourth birthday on the Achenbach Child Behavior Checklist. As in other samples, there was moderate convergence in mothers' and fathers' total problem scores, but also signs that they(More)
A follow-up study was carried out to investigate the children of 204 mothers who had previously participated in a study of their mental health during pregnancy and the first postnatal year. One hundred and seventy two children, 170 mothers, and 99 fathers were assessed when the children were 3 years 10 months. Boys of mothers depressed in the first year(More)
UNLABELLED Endothelin has both vasoconstrictor and mitogenic properties and might, therefore, play a role in the pathogenesis of acute coronary syndromes and coronary atherosclerosis. The aim of the study was to characterize the mechanisms and kinetics of cardiac endothelin-1 (ET-1) release following a local endothelial injury during PTCA (group A) and(More)
A randomized controlled pilot study was performed with a sample of extremely preterm infants to evaluate the impact of postnatal estradiol and progesterone replacement on postnatal bone mineral accretion. Twenty-five of 30 infants in the pilot study survived, and of these, 24 infants were available for the follow-up examination at a median chronological age(More)
The aim of the study was to examine the relation between the extent of myocardial ischemia and changes in QT interval dispersion in patients with obstructive coronary artery disease and in patients with normal coronary arteries. QT interval dispersion reflects regional variations in ventricular repolarization and cardiac electrical instability. Previous(More)
We determined the plasma levels of prothrombin fragment F1+2, thrombin-antithrombin III complexes (TAT), fibrin monomers (FM), D-dimers (DD) and fibrinogen in 57 patients with angiographically verified graded coronary artery disease (CAD) free of concomitant peripheral atherosclerosis, cerebrovascular disease or diabetes mellitus and a group of 21(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of brief myocardial ischemia and vascular trauma induced by elective percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty on in vivo 'priming' and activation of neutrophils. PATIENTS AND METHODS We studied 16 patients undergoing elective coronary angioplasty for symptomatic coronary artery(More)
Authors present the evolution of psychoanalytical views of how a child perceives and contruct the world. They begin with Freud's thought and go through works of Klein, Spitz, Mahler, Bowlby, ending with modern thought of Stern. Developments in understanding of the infant by observations taken through the last thirty years are outlined and implications for(More)
