Abstract 23: Lower Heart Rate Variability Associated With Incident Coronary Heart Disease and Death in Post-Menopausal Women Session Title: Predicting the Future

Conclusion: In post-menopausal women, lower HRV was associated with a modestly higher, but statistically significant, risk for incident cardiovascular events, including fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction. Factors associated with lower HRV and cardiac autonomic impairment may be candidates for reducing CHD risk, such as better glycemic control and improved physical activity.

Authors: Dome P, Faludi G Abstract Main indications of antidepressants (ADs) as major depressive disorder (MDD) and different kinds of anxiety disorders are quite prevalent during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Due to the possible hazards of in utero and breast milk exposition of ADs, both psychiatrists and mothers frequently have concerns about the use of ADs during the periods of pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, we should also bear in mind that affective disorders left untreated during these periods are also associated with health risks for the mother and the baby as well. Accordingly, the treatment of...

CONCLUSIONS: To the best of our knowledge, the present review is the first to specifically explore the relationship between social cognition and social functioning in patients with BD. This exploration is of interest, as it enhances current understanding of this disorder and, by so doing, should improve patient outcomes. PMID: 29787961 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: History of ELM as well as the common sequelae, BPD and MDD, pose risks for child abuse. Our findings suggest improvement of emotion regulation as a potential target for intervention programs. These programs should also aim at non-substantiated cases because even an elevated abuse potential affected child mental health.Declaration of interestNone.

Authors: Sánchez-Sandoval Y, Melero S Abstract Although adoptive families have been shown to provide a protective context for human development, some adopted children and adolescents are at increased risk for psychological adjustment problems. On the other hand, little is known about psychological adjustment of young adult adoptees. The aim of this study is to analyze the mental health and legal substance consumption (tobacco and alcohol) of young adults (n = 134) who were domestically adopted by Spanish families. Young adults showed significantly worse scores on the Symptom Check-List-90-R (Derogatis, 1975)...

We sought to report on the outcomes after SYNERGY DES (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA, USA) implantation in patients with MI undergoing percutaneous revascularisation (PCI). METHODS AND RESULTS: We included all consecutive patients with MI undergoing PCI with the SYNERGY DES and newer-generation DES (n-DES group) in Sw...
