Depot gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist (GnRHa) therapy is the treatment of choice for patients with central precocious puberty (CPP). It is still unclear whether long-term exposure to GnRHa is associated with impaired reproductive function in adulthood. The present study was performed on 46 women, former CPP patients, 12.5+/-3.7 years after the… (More)
Psychological behaviour influences the whole person/individual and has an impact on sensory areas, e. g. in the performance of visual acuity and visual field testing in ophthalmology. The symptomatics of psychological reactions are shown in examples (genuine case reports) to demonstrate the principles of this problem.
We present an extension of state-based planning from traditional Strips to function application, allowing to express operator effects as updates. As proposed in PDDL, fluent variables are introduced and, consequently, predicates are defined over general terms. Preconditions of operators are characterized as variable binding constraints with standard… (More)
Visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, and visual fields were examined with and without occluders both in a group of healthy subjects and in a group of patients with field defects (mostly caused by glaucoma). The various results were compared with one another as well as with the results obtained from a group of cataract patients examined before and after… (More)
