BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Use of the so-called "dappou herb," a street drug typically produced by mixing herbs with synthetic cannabinoid (estimated to be the pharmacologically effective ingredient), has recently spread to young people in Japan who consider it a new recreational drug. It is not legally regulated because no illicit ingredients have been detected in the drug by conventional screening tests. It is easily obtained via the Internet or from street vendors. As the population abusing this drug has grown, medical problems such as psychosis, disturbances of consciousness caused by acute intoxication, and social problems such as traffic accidents while under the influence of the drug have been increasingly reported...

Facing the current political controversies concerning health care, the present study examines the question who is using outpatient psychotherapy in Germany. Using data drawn from a nationally representative survey of 5120 Germans 7% stated they had used oupatient psychotherapy in the former 6 years or being actually in outpatient psychotherapy. Comparisions of socio-economic variables between persons with and without use of outpatient psychotherapy showed, contrary to expectations, that psychotherapy is not utilised by so called "YARVIS" (young, attractive, rich, verbal, intelligent, successful) patients...

Psoriasis is a chronic, recurrent, and often disfiguring skin disease that may significantly affect patients' quality of life. Treatment of psoriasis, including hospitalization, has been shown to improve quality of life.

Hospitalized patients also completed the DLQI 1 week after discharge. Statistical analysis using t tests compared pretreatment and posttreatment DLQI scores as well as improvement of inpatients versus outpatients...

Obstructed voiding is a well recognized complication following a suburethral sling procedure. Current methods of transvaginal and transabdominal urethrolysis have had variable success rates in relieving the obstruction, and do not restabilize the urethra to prevent potential postoperative stress incontinence. We report on a procedure used in 4 cases which addresses both of these issues. All patients had persistent urinary retention beyond 8 weeks after a suburethral sling procedure. An oupatient procedure consisting of sling incision and associated tissue interposition (vaginal wall in three cases and fascia lata in one) was successful in relieving the obstruction...

Three dosage combinations of clonidine and cyclothiazide were tested in at least 20 patients each, under clinical (4 weeks) and oupatients (longterm) conditions, in order to find a suitable combination with fewer side effects than the single drugs with at least equal efficacy for the longterm treatment of hypertension. The combination of 150 mcg clonidine and 2.5 mg cyclothiazide (Dimapres) in the form of a scored oblong sugar-coated tablet seems to satisfy these demands best and to be an optimal combination of clonidine and cyclothiazide...
