    Description / Table of Contents: Summary Between January 1995 and June 1996, 24 inpatients at our hospital (mean age 55.6 years) were treated with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Clinical improvement was observed in 80% of the patients, including those without risk factors (NRG, n=16), as well as those with concomitant cardiovascular diseases (RG, n=8). During a mean period of observation of 224 days after the end of ECT 7 patients (35%) relapsed. The rate of relapse was higher in RG than in NRG patients (57.1 vs 23.1%). In all cases ECT was well tolerated; 285 applications of ECT did not result in mortality or persistent morbidity. However, RG patients may be at increased risk for the development of minor cardiovascular complications, which were noted in three RG patients (37.5%), but only in one patient (6.2%) in the NRG (Fisher’s test, P=0.09). Taken together, our results demonstrate that ECT is a safe treatment regimen for depression even in medically ill patients of old age.
    Notes: Zusammenfassung Vierundzwanzig Patienten (Altersdurchschnitt 55,6 Jahre) wurden im Zeitraum 1/95 bis 6/96 an unserer Klinik mit der Elektrokrampftherapie (EKT) behandelt. Sowohl Risikopatienten mit kardiovaskulären Begleiterkrankungen (RG, n=8) als auch Patienten mit p.d. nicht erhöhtem Risiko (NRG, n=16) zeigten in über 80% der Fälle eine klinische Besserung. Bei 7 (35%) dieser Patienten kam es während des mittleren Beobachtungszeitraumes von 224 Tagen nach Abschluß der 1. EKT-Serie zu einer erneuten Exazerbation der psychischen Störung. Dabei zeigten RG-Patienten eine höhere Rückfallquote im Vergleich zu Patienten der NRG (57,1% vs. 23,1%). In allen Fällen konnte die EKT regulär beendet werden; bei insgesamt 285 durchgeführten EKT traten keine schwerwiegenden Komplikationen auf. Allerdings hatten RG-Patienten im Vergleich zu Patienten der NRG ein höheres Risiko für das Auftreten geringfügiger kardialer Komplikationen (37,5% vs. 6,2%, Fisher’s Test p=0,09). Zusammenfassend demonstrieren unsere Ergebnisse, daß die EKT auch bei Risikopatienten eine sichere Behandlungsmethode ist.

    Notes: Abstract Human evolutionary research in Eastern Germany, limited in this paper to the origins and evolution of Pleistocene man, has mainly focused during the last decade on theoretical aspects of the evolution of man and human society from multiple and interdisciplinary perspectives. An interdisciplinary working group ‘Probleme der Menschwerdung’ was founded in 1977. About 30 specialists from various fields have discussed problems of the origins and evolution of man and human society under interdisciplinary aspects. The activities, difficulties and results of this cooperation will be outlined in this paper. There will also be given a progress report on the disciplinary initiated research on local sites as well as on general aspects and problems.
