Leeners, B; Imthurn, B (2007). Psychosomatische Aspekte der Endometriose - aktueller Stand der wissenschaftlichen Kenntnisse und der klinischen Erfahrungen. Gynäkologisch-geburtshilfliche Rundschau, 47(3):132-139.

Abstract

Current therapeutic options allow successful treatment in only part of the women presenting with endometriosis. Pain, fatigue/exhaustion, intensive and repeated therapies as well as a concentration on the disease lead to a variety of consequences concerning education/ profession, body perception, self-esteem, partnership/social contacts, sexuality and psychic well-being. Difficulties in becoming pregnant represent a further central problem in dealing with endometriosis. Therefore, biopsychosocial aspects should be integrated into current somatically oriented models of medical support.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
