OBJECTIVE: The Menopause-Specific Quality-of-Life (MENQOL) questionnaire was developed as a specific tool to measure the health-related quality-of-life of postmenopausal women. Thus far, the Chinese version questionnaire has not been subjected to psychometric assessment with a large sample. This study aims to evaluate the validity and reliability of the Chinese version of the MENQOL specific to postmenopausal women in China. METHODS: A total of 1,137 menopausal symptomatic and 491 menopausal asymptomatic women from eight cities in China were recruited using a convenience sampling method...

OBJECTIVE: Purpose of our study was to demonstrate the feasibility and limitations of acoustic noise reduction in a standard clinical MRI protocol for abdominal imaging. METHODS: Acoustic noise and image quality were assessed in 17 patients for a standard liver imaging protocol including TSE and GRE sequences and compared to quiet optimizations as described by Heismann et al. Two blinded readers scored artifacts, the delineation of the abdominal organs and level of diagnostic confidence...

OBJECTIVE: Sleep disturbance is a major consequence of hot flashes among breast cancer survivors. This study evaluated the effects of electro-acupuncture (EA) versus gabapentin (GP) for sleep disturbances among breast cancer survivors experiencing daily hot flashes. METHODS: We analyzed data from a randomized controlled trial involving 58 breast cancer survivors experiencing bothersome hot flashes at least two times per day. Participants were randomly assigned to receive 8 weeks of EA or daily GP (total dose of 900 mg/d)...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Midlife, which encompasses the menopause transition in women, can be a time of disrupted sleep and accelerated atherosclerosis accumulation. Short or poor sleep quality has been associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk; few studies have investigated relations among midlife women. We tested whether shorter actigraphy sleep time or poorer subjective sleep quality was associated with carotid atherosclerosis among midlife women. METHODS: 256 peri- and postmenopausal women aged 40-60 completed three days of wrist actigraphy, hot flash monitoring, questionnaires [Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Berlin], a blood draw, and carotid ultrasound [intima media thickness (IMT), plaque]...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to determine the sleep quality of patients treated at burn center. METHODS: The present study is descriptive research conducted between January 2014 and July 2015 at a university hospital. The study included 36 patients (32 male, 4 female; mean age 26.69±9.63; range 19 to 60 years). Patient information form and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) were used to collect data. SPSS software (version 22.0; SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA) was used for the analysis of the data, and statistical significance was regarded as p<0...

OBJECTIVE: Temporary binding (TB) is sensitive and specific to Alzheimer's Disease (AD), is not affected by age, repeated testing or level of education. Hence, TB is useful to assess patients with very different socio-cultural backgrounds. However, the current computerised version of the test is not suitable for use in clinical settings. The aim of this study was to investigate whether a clinically friendly version of the TB task results in overlapping outcomes compared to the computerised version...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of IQ-SPECT gated blood pool (MUGA) under conditions of decreased scan time (ST). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ten patients underwent routine 26-min, two-view planar, followed by LEHR and IQ-SPECT MUGA, on a Siemens dual-head Symbia scanner. Six 'back and forth' 4-min SPECT scans were summed into 4-, 8-, 12-, 16-, 20-, and 24-min equivalent scans, and reconstructed iteratively (IQ-SPECT and LEHR) and with FBP (LEHR)...

OBJECTIVE: This study was planned to compare the effects of gabapentin and isoflavones in menopausal vasomotor symptoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This prospective comparative study was conducted on 100 patients with complaints of hot flashes, divided into two groups of 50 each. Group I received 900 mg of gabapentin and Group II received 60 mg of isoflavones daily for 3 months. The patients were interviewed to calculate hot flash, global and depression scores and were rescored after 2, 4, 8, and 12 weeks...

The effect of alcohol intoxication on central and peripheral attention was examined as a test of Alcohol Myopia Theory (AMT). Previous research has supported AMT in the context of visual attention, but few studies have examined the effects of alcohol intoxication on central and peripheral attention. The study followed a 2 (alcohol treatment) × 2 (array size) × 2 (task type) mixed design. Forty-one participants (placebo or intoxicated) viewed an array of four or six colored circles, while simultaneously counting the flashes of a centrally presented fixation cross...

OBJECTIVES: Conjugated estrogens/bazedoxifene (CE/BZA) reduced menopause-related hot flashes (HFs) in the Selective estrogens, Menopause, And Response to Therapy (SMART) trials. This post hoc pooled analysis of SMART-1 and -2 further characterized effects of CE/BZA on HFs in the overall population and patient subgroups. METHODS: Data from two randomized, double-blind, placebo- and active-controlled, phase 3 studies were pooled for nonhysterectomized postmenopausal women with moderate/severe HFs given CE 0...

Unilateral spatial neglect is a common neurological syndrome following predominantly right hemispheric stroke. While most patients lack insight into their neglect behaviour and do not initiate compensatory behaviours in the early recovery phase, some patients recognize it and start to pay attention towards the neglected space. We aimed to characterize visual attention capacity in patients with unilateral spatial neglect with specific focus on cortical processes underlying compensatory gaze shift towards the neglected space during the recovery process...

BACKGROUND: Many women with multiple sclerosis (MS) are postmenopausal. Previously reported findings from an online MS cohort suggested that earlier, surgical menopause may be associated with higher patient-reported MS severity scores. OBJECTIVE: To explore experiences of menopause in a series of MS women responding to a reproductive survey from an online research platform, PatientsLikeMe (PLM). METHODS: The free-text responses from a detailed reproductive history survey deployed to PLM members were analyzed using grounded theory approach...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Sleep hygiene is one factor that contributes to poor sleep in breast cancer survivors but is poorly measured. The purposes of this study were to (a) evaluate the psychometric properties of the Sleep Hygiene Awareness and Practice Scale (SHAPS) and (b) compare SHAPS scores between midlife women with and without breast cancer. METHODS: Cross-sectional, descriptive data from a single-blinded, controlled hot flash intervention trial. RESULTS: 194 women (88 breast cancer survivors; 106 menopausal women)...

PURPOSE: This study aims to identify the effects of foot reflexology applied to women on their vasomotor complaints and quality of life. METHODS: A randomised controlled study was conducted with 120 women. The experimental group received foot reflexology treatment, while the control group received nonspecific foot massage. RESULTS: The mean scores for hot flashes, sweats, and night sweats, were lower in the reflexology group than the control group after the practice; and the difference between the groups was statistically significant (p < 0...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify temporal associations of anxiety dimensions with menopausal hot flashes in women progressing through the menopausal transition. We hypothesized that associations of both somatic and affective dimensions of anxiety with hot flashes increased in the menopausal transition, and that somatic anxiety was an independent risk factor for menopausal hot flashes. METHODS: Hot flashes, anxiety symptoms, hormone levels, and other psychosocial variables were assessed annually for 14 years of follow-up...

The key issue of electroencephalography (EEG)- based brain switches is to detect the control and idle states in an asynchronous manner. Most existing methods rely on a threshold. However, it is often time consuming to select a satisfactory threshold, and the chosen threshold might be inappropriate over a long period of time due to the variability of the EEG signals. This paper presents a new P300-based threshold-free brain switch. Specifically, one target button and three pseudo buttons, which are intensified in a random order to produce P300 potential, are set in the graphical user interface...
