Thirty-one patients dependent on benzodiazepines were randomly assigned to either slow withdrawal (SW) or abrupt withdrawal under propranolol cover (PW). Of 16 patients in the SW group, 11 successfully withdrew from their drugs, while only 4 out of 15 in the PW group did so. Patients in the SW group had only mild withdrawal symptoms, while those in the PW(More)
The opportunity to assess prevalence, incidence, and outcome of schizophrenia and delusional disorder was provided by an age- and sex-stratified random sample of 5,222 persons age 65 years and over. This sample was chosen from general practitioner lists, and interviewed by psychiatric nurses trained to use the Geriatric Mental State (GMS)-AGECAT(More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to identify all elderly people of ethnic minorities living in a defined geographical area in inner-city Liverpool and to identify psychiatric morbidity and barriers to use of services. This paper reports the prevalence of dementia and depression. METHOD A survey of the community was carried out using the Geriatric Mental(More)
A randomized double-blind, cross-over study using treatment periods of 12 weeks with a 2-week washout, comparing two long-acting formulations of propranolol ('Inderal' LA 160 mg daily and Half-'Inderal' LA 80 mg daily) was performed after a placebo run-in of 4 weeks on 51 patients. The study indicated that both long-acting formulations were significantly(More)
Several phases of the VLSI design process use rectilinear Steiner spanning trees in estimating wire length. Since the problem is 9@-complete heuristics form the major portion of the collection of algorithms for this problem. Exact solutions are rare and v e y few have even been implemented. Thus they seem not to be practical. We first reduce the feasible(More)
Rectilinear Steiner spanning trees are used in several phases of the VLSI physical design process when collections sf tenninals must be connected to a common electrical point. We present a new linear time heuristic algorithm for generating these rectilinear Steiner trees. We begin with minimal spanning trees and transform those configurations which are(More)
