Ismail Altintop, Mehmet Tatli
AIM: Elderly physical abuse (EPA) is defined as injury or assault to or the restriction of an elderly person. Although EPA is an important social problem, its diagnosis is difficult because of tendency to cover up the event. In this study, patients aged 65 years and over who presented at the emergency department (ED) for forensic reasons and in whom physical abuse was suspected were examined. The aim of this study was to raise ED awareness of EPA and thereby to contribute to treatment plans for these patients in the ED...

BACKGROUND: Caregivers of patients with dementia or Alzheimer's disease (AD) face special health challenges due to the progressive nature of the disease. Self-care has crucial importance on individuals' management of life, health, and well-being. However, limited evidence is available on self-care management of dementia and AD caregivers. This study aimed to investigate the influence of caregiving on the self-care management of dementia and AD caregivers based on the caregivers' experience...

AIM: Evidence describing the contribution of cerebral white matter disease and medial temporal atrophy (MTA) to behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) has been conflicting. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship of white matter hyperintensities (WMH) and MTA observed on magnetic resonance imaging with BPSD among patients with Alzheimer's disease. METHODS: In a cross-sectional study of a prospective cohort of patients attending a memory clinic, 46 patients with probable Alzheimer's disease (mean age: 72...

AIM: As the population ages, epilepsy among elderly people is increasing. Epileptic seizures in the elderly are mostly complex partial seizures without convulsions, so more caution is needed in the diagnosis of epilepsy. If epileptic seizures in the context of memory impairment are overlooked, epilepsy may be misdiagnosed as dementia. However, in older patients with epilepsy, there is a possibility that cognitive function may be impaired in the interictal phase. This study aims to investigate the efficacy of anti-epileptic drug (AED) treatment for patients with cognitive impairment and interictal epileptiform discharge (IED) on electroencephalography...

AIM: The aim of this study was to assess the ability of Neuropsychiatric Inventory (NPI) scale profiles to differentiate between distinct frontotemporal dementia (FTD) subtypes. METHODS: The NPI was used to assess 311 older patients who had been clinically diagnosed with FTD. FTD subtypes included behavioural variant FTD (bvFTD, n = 121), primary progressive aphasia (semantic variant (n = 69), non-fluent agrammatic variant (n = 31), and logopenic variant (n = 0)), FTD-motor neuron disease (n = 4), progressive supranuclear palsy (n = 43), and corticobasal syndrome (n = 43)...

BACKGROUND: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) has been widely used in treating older adult patients with major depressive disorder. The results of randomized controlled trials (RCT) are mixed. This study systematically examined the efficacy and safety of ECT versus antidepressants (AD) in older adult patients with major depressive disorder. METHODS: A literature search was conducted independently by two reviewers using the PubMed, Embase, PsycINFO, Cochrane Library, Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure, Wanfang, and SinoMed databases from their inceptions until 17 May 2017...

AIM: The main purpose of this study was to identify changes in both caregiver burden and positive caregiving appraisal over time, as well as factors affecting these variables. METHODS: This analysis included 41 in-home family caregivers who had completed questionnaires at baseline, 6 months, and 12 months. We assessed various caregiver and care recipient characteristics, caregivers' positive appraisal of caregiving, caregiver burden, desire to continue caregiving, severity of care recipients' cognitive impairment, and behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia...

AIM: Caregivers of dementia patients experience high levels of burden; this is especially true of caregivers of dementia patients with behavioural problems. As intervention studies for these caregivers are still lacking, we conducted an explorative pilot study into the efficacy of a support programme. METHODS: Participants were caregivers of dementia patients affected by apathy, disinhibition, and/or stereotypical behaviour. All patients had a Frontal Behavioural Inventory score of 11 or higher...

AIM: The number-transcoding task on the Japanese version of the Rapid Dementia Screening Test (RDST-J) requires conversion between Arabic and Chinese numerals (209 to , 4054 to , to 681, to 2027). In this task, questions and answers are written for Chinese-Arabic conversion. We reported that the RDST-J could distinguish subjects with Alzheimer's disease with a Clinical Dementia Rating Scale score of 0.5 from controls. In this study, we investigated the impact of changing the task to a hiragana-Arabic conversion...

AIM: The Japanese Comprehensive Strategy to Accelerate Dementia Measures, known as the New Orange Plan, aims to support people with dementia living in their communities. Home-visit nurses (HVN) are expected to play an important role in this comprehensive support system. In this preliminary study, we explored caregivers' experiences before and after implementation of HVN care for persons with dementia who lived alone. METHODS: This study was a qualitative descriptive design using in-depth interviews with five family caregivers of persons with dementia who lived alone while receiving HVN...

AIM: Previous research on psychological autonomy has focused on self-reliance. However, given that ageing is inevitable, acceptance of ageing might be a more stable factor that reflects quality of life (QOL) status. This study examined factors that affect the acceptance of ageing as a part of psychological autonomy. METHODS: We conducted questionnaire surveys among community-dwelling elderly people. The questionnaires consisted of the psychological autonomy scale, the Instrumental Activities of Daily Living Scale, and the QOL scale...

Semantic dementia (SD) is characterized by semantic aphasia and prosopagnosia, but it may also include behavioural disturbances such as stereotypic behaviour. We report the case of a 50-year-old man with SD accompanied by stereotypic behaviour who committed suicide despite not being in a depressive state. He initially had major depressive disorder accompanied by suicide attempts, but he gradually showed remarkable impairment in single-word semantic comprehension, naming memory, and facial recognition memory...

BACKGROUND: Depression is one of the most prevalent causes of distress in the geriatric population. The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence of depressive symptoms in elderly cancer patients and to determine the possible associated factors. METHODS: Cancer patients 65 years or older and on active chemotherapy completed the Yesavage Geriatric Depression Scale. We examined the relationship of depressive symptoms with age, gender, marital status, educational background, type of cancer, stage of disease, comorbidities, types of treatment for cancer, the duration after diagnosis of cancer, social support, and pain status...

BACKGROUND: Multimorbidity in dementia is associated with an increased risk of complications and a higher need for care. Having knowledge of cardiovascular and metabolic comorbidities is crucial when making decisions about diagnostic procedures and therapies. We compared the prevalence of comorbidities in hospitalized patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), vascular dementia, and psychiatric diseases other than dementia. Additionally, we compared clinically relevant health-care indicators (length of hospital stay, rate of re-hospitalization) between these groups...

This case report describes a Japanese man who presented with slowly progressive memory disturbances that began at the age of 79 years. The man also displayed conspicuous behaviour and psychological symptoms in the early stage of dementia. Computed tomography revealed atrophy of the amygdala and severe hippocampal deterioration, particularly in the anterior portion. Lateral ventricular dilatation, mainly affecting the anterior and inferior horns, was also observed. Interestingly, cerebral neocortical atrophy in the frontal and temporal lobes was considerably mild for the patient's age...

BACKGROUND: Potentially harmful behaviour (PHB) by caregivers is detrimental to the physical and psychological well-being of care recipients. In Japan, few studies have investigated caregivers' PHB towards dementia patients. This study examined PHB in family caregivers of dementia patients with behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) and identified factors related to PHB. METHODS: Following primary consultations at an elderly psychiatric patient department, we enrolled 133 pairs of dementia patients and their family caregivers...
