This issue of Insights features a sampling of clinical work and research performed by members

of the department of psychiatry and psychology within cleveland clinic’s neurological institute.

Their important work is a reflection of the growth of the department since joining the institute.

Those of you following our progress will recognize the increase in department membership. some

of this represents basic service consolidation. it also reflects an institution-wide recognition that

psychiatry is a key player on the general healthcare team.

Department members serving in the Bariatric and Metabolic Institute (Dr. Leslie Heinberg),

Epilepsy Center (Dr. Robyn Busch), Heart and Vascular Institute (Drs. Michael McKee, Christine

Moravec, Leo Pozuelo and Jianping Zhang), and Sleep Disorders Center (Dr. Kumar Budur)

provide excellent examples of our interdisciplinary teamwork.

Dr. Gregory Collins updates us on the important role of the partial opioid receptor agonistantagonist,

buprenorphine, which has significantly advanced the care of patients with chemical

dependency. The strong reputation of the Center for Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation is

a distinctive feature of our department. It is one of several centers in the department that

provides primary psychiatric care to patients with mood disorders, chronic pain, chemical

dependency and psychiatric disorders of childhood and adolescence.

Recently recruited, Dr. Adele Viguera, known internationally for her clinical and investigative

work on perinatal management of bipolar disorder, shares an important example of her ongoing

work in this important area.

Finally, the summary of publications and presentations represents the department’s

continuing commitment to scholarship and academic advancement.

Thank you for taking the time to read this issue of Insights. We hope it provides you valuable

information not only about us, but also about progress in psychiatry and the behavioral

Buprenorphine revolutionizes treatment for opiate dependence

Also of alarming importance is that prescription opiates

are being abused by children, teenagers and the


According to the Ohio Department of Alcohol and

Drug Addiction Services, young abusers of oxycodone

have begun abusing heroin after they

can no longer obtain or afford oxycodone. Since

there is an increase in opiate addiction, including

heroin, it can be anticipated that the number of

people requiring detoxification and treatment will

increase as well. The Ohio Department of Alcohol

and Drug Addiction Services data indicate the number

of admissions for heroin abuse increased overall

about 8 percent from 2002 to 2003. 2

The introduction of buprenorphine

Fortunately, office-based opioid treatment with

buprenorphine has revolutionized treatment for

opiate-dependent patients. 3 The Drug Addiction

Treatment Act of 2000 and recent legislation have

allowed physicians who are registered for buprenorphine

to treat dependent patients with this medication

on an outpatient basis. These changes in the law

expanded access to treatment for opiate-dependent

patients and allow for treatment options to be tailored

to patients on an individual, confidential basis. 4

Treatment with buprenorphine results in higher treatment

retention rates, as a 12-month retention rate of

75 percent with concurrent psychological treatment

has shown. 5 Additionally, studies have shown a 35

percent to 67 percent decrease in opiate-positive urine

tests while on buprenorphine therapy. 3,6

The shortcomings of methadone


By gregory B. Collins, md, and Byron C. leak, md

The non-medical use of opiates has increased dramatically over the past few years. prescription opiates are now

the second most abused drugs in this country, behind marijuana. According to a 2005 report, there were 13.7

million users who indicated non-medical use of oxycodone in 2003. 1

Since the mid-20th century, methadone was the only

legal pharmaceutical opiate for treatment of opiate

addiction. Methadone continues to be the traditional

medication used at many treatment facilities.

Maintenance therapy supplied by methadone clinics

was instituted to relieve opiate addiction and with-

drawal, as well as to prevent drug-related criminal


However, several problems exist with methadone

therapy for opioid addiction. Methadone maintenance

generally requires a high daily dose for the prevention

of withdrawal symptoms. On average, patients require

60 mg to 120 mg per day of methadone, according to

the CDC Department of Health and Human Services.

Unfortunately, these high doses and the growing use

of methadone for pain management have resulted in

an FDA advisory released in November 2006 indicating

an increasing number of deaths from methadone.

These deaths often were due to cardiopulmonary

events such as prolonged QT syndrome, accidental

overdose and respiratory depression, and often occur

within the first 48 to 72 hours of therapy.

Other problems are the long waiting lists to enter into

methadone clinics, poor geographic access to clinics

and the length of treatment on methadone. A study in

2002 indicated that the average wait time for methadone

treatment was 10.6 weeks. 7

Currently, there are only 13 methadone clinics in Ohio.

Four other states have no certified methadone clinics

at all. Furthermore, there is a continuing problem with

diversion of methadone by patients at methadone clinics.

Patients have been known to buy and sell methadone

and other drugs to patients at or near methadone

clinics. The relative non-availability of psychiatric

services at these clinics likely contributes to their marginal


Buprenorphine’s success

Buprenorphine has moved treatment from a daily

visit to a methadone clinic to a monthly visit to a

doctor’s office, with greater convenience and efficacy.

Buprenorphine, a partial agonist-antagonist, is a far

safer drug than methadone, a full agonist. It is virtually

impossible to overdose and die from a dose of

In 2005, Cleveland Clinic’s Alcohol and Drug Recovery

Center (ADRC) adopted the use of buprenorphine

for opiate detox and maintenance. Several hundred

patients have been treated with the drug through the

ADRC. Most patients are slowly tapered down and off

the drug as outpatients and, after an initial induction

and intensive initial period of therapy, usually are

seen monthly. Patient satisfaction has been extremely

high with buprenorphine treatment. Many patients,

even with long-term opiate dependence, now are free

of illicit opiates, are living normal lives, and regard

buprenorphine as a miracle drug. Relapses have been

rare, as long as patients use the drug as prescribed

and continue to take it.

The ADRC uses buprenorphine in the form of Subutex

in the inpatient setting for treatment of opiate-dependent

patients and Suboxone only in the outpatient setting.

Methadone is used for opiate detoxification and

withdrawals in the inpatient setting only. The treating

physician makes the decision to place patients on

buprenorphine therapy or methadone therapy on an

individual basis. Patients are screened for buprenorphine

outpatient therapy on several factors, including

compliance, incorporation of self-help meetings, comorbid

disorders and federal guidelines for prescribing

buprenorphine. The figure shows patients treated

at Cleveland Clinic’s ADRC from 2006 to 2007 and

those placed on buprenorphine therapy.

In spite of the dramatic improvements in outcomes

from buprenorphine for opiate-dependent patients,

its use needs to be more widely adopted. The resis-

presurgical Evaluation for Bariatric patients:

Balancing science and Clinical Judgment

By leslie J. heinberg, phd


Bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for obesity. 1 unlike standard diets that focus on altering energy

balance, the permanent physiological changes that result from bariatric procedures yield significant weightloss

maintenance and remission of most, if not all, of obesity-related co-morbidities. 1

Although highly effective, bariatric surgery carries

significant risk and requires permanent lifestyle

change. Patients will need to adhere to a strict diet,

daily supplements, regular exercise and frequent

follow-ups in order to be successful. Determining the

appropriateness of candidates requires a balance of

empirically based decision-making and the “art” of

clinical judgment.

For example, adherence must occur in a population

that is at high risk for psychiatric co-morbidity.

Seventy percent of bariatric patients have a concurrent

Axis I disorder and 20 percent meet criteria for

Axis II pathology. 2 It is somewhat unclear whether the

co-morbidity is causal in the development of the morbid

obesity or whether it is secondary to, exacerbated

by or maintained by stigma, isolation and societal


Individuals interested in bariatric surgery often are

surprised to learn that almost all insurers require a

pre-surgical behavioral evaluation. For many, this is

their first-ever visit with a mental health professional

and they are understandably nervous. Conversely,

those with a long history of psychiatric care may have

concern that this history will disqualify them. Rather

than a “pass/fail test,” or a rubber stamp, our evaluation

focuses on eight domains (see table) that were

selected by Cleveland Clinic’s psychological team.

Our selection is based upon a thorough review of the

existing literature on psychosocial predictors of outcome,

as well as our many years of clinical expertise.

Each domain is graded on a five-point scale ranging

from poor to excellent. A summary assessment of

poor, guarded, fair, good or excellent is given at the

conclusion of the assessment. Many patients in lower

categories are given specific recommendations that

will improve their candidacy.

For example, about one-third of bariatric surgery

candidates (more in a tertiary care center like

Cleveland Clinic) meet criteria for binge eating dis-

order. 2 Although not a clear contra-indication for

surgery, patients with binge eating may not lose as

much weight and are at higher risk for weight regain.

Cleveland Clinic’s Bariatric Surgery Behavioral Health

Service offers a four-session binge eating group that

helps prepare such patients for surgery. Other behavioral

health groups we offer focus on reducing alcohol/

substance relapse risk and improving expectations

and behavioral adherence prior to and after surgery.

The use of a “grading” system and assessment across

many domains is essential in multi-disciplinary

assessments. Individuals considered poor (e.g., acute

psychosis, inpatient hospitalization or attempted

suicide within the last 12 months) generally are not

surgical candidates. Individuals who are fair, good

or excellent generally are considered surgical can-

didates, although they may receive recommendations

from our team that are designed to improve

outcome. Most complicated are those patients who

are guarded. These individuals typically have both

significant psychological and medical risk factors.

Severe, life-threatening medical co-morbidities may

necessitate surgery despite significant psychological

risk. Conversely, significant psychological risk in the

absence of significant medical co-morbidities may be

rejected by the surgical team.

An interdisciplinary team effort combined with objective

ratings and sound clinical judgment has been

effective at Cleveland Clinic in balancing the medical

and psychological risks of patients who present for

bariatric surgery.

memory decline following temporal lobe resection for

Intractable Epilepsy: the role of presurgical depression

By robyn m. Busch, phd


depressive disorders are the most frequently observed psychiatric disturbances in patients with epilepsy. rates

of depression among patients with intractable epilepsy range from 20 percent to 55 percent, approximately 5

to 10 times greater than rates in the general population. 1-3

There is also a high prevalence of cognitive problems

in individuals with epilepsy. Several studies have

found that patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE)

who report greater depressive symptoms demonstrate

reduced memory scores as compared with

patients who have fewer depressive symptoms,

particularly if seizures arise from the left temporal

lobe. This relationship also appears to hold after

anterior temporal lobe resection such that patients

with left TLE and emotional disturbance following

surgery demonstrate lower memory scores than

nondepressed left TLE patients and right TLE

patients. 4 However, no study had examined presurgical

depressed mood state as a moderator of change in

memory functioning following surgical intervention

for the treatment of medically intractable epilepsy.

This is an important issue given that presurgical

indicators can help to identify patients who are at risk

for memory decline following epilepsy surgery.

We recently completed a retrospective study to

evaluate mood state as a moderator of change in

memory abilities following temporal lobe resection

for the treatment of intractable epilepsy.* We found

that patients who underwent left temporal lobe

resections and who had depressed mood prior to

surgery demonstrated the largest declines on

measures of general and verbal memory after surgery

compared with left or right temporal lobectomy

patients without depression and right temporal lobectomy

patients with depression. The change in general

memory is depicted in the chart. These differences

could not be attributed to an increase in depressive

symptoms or to poorer seizure outcome after surgery.

These results suggest that depressed mood should be

taken into account when evaluating and providing

feedback to patients about the cognitive risks

associated with temporal lobectomy.

anxiety and heart disease

By leo pozuelo, md, faCp, and Jianping Zhang, md, phd

much attention has been paid to the connection between depression and coronary heart disease, both in the

research community and in the general population. depression is linked to increased risks of developing coronary

heart disease (chd) among initially healthy people, as well as conferring increased morbidity and mortality

in cardiac patients who subsequently get depressed.

In one of our prospective cohort studies, we found

that increasing depressive symptoms over time in an

elderly sample were associated with a 57 percent higher

risk of mortality. Compared with people who were

stable, those with increased depressive symptoms

died almost four years earlier. 1

In contrast, anxiety — another prevalent condition

in the population — has been less studied regarding

its relationship with heart disease. The prevalence of

anxiety disorders in the population is about 15 percent

to 20 percent. Anxiety can present in many different

forms. There are several clinical subtypes of anxiety

disorders, including panic disorder, social anxiety

disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, simple phobia,

obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic

stress disorder. Anxiety may be a normal reaction to

a stressful situation. From the evolutionary perspective,

anxiety is a built-in alarm system to respond to

potential dangers in the environment, which has benefited

the human species for thousands of years. The

“fight or flight” response, coupled with activation of

the sympathetic nervous system and hypothalamuspituitary-adrenal

system, allows an individual to get

ready for the potential threat.

However, in modern society, anxiety and the ancient

“fight or flight” response may be more maladaptive

and likely to be a “false alarm,” because in many

situations an individual needs a calm and rational

approach to cope with stress. Therefore, people with

chronically elevated anxiety, or an extremely high

level of anxiety, may over-drive their physiological system,

and put themselves at risk of developing health

problems. In fact, research has shown that anxiety

can lead to decreased vagal tone (i.e., heart rate variability),

increased blood cortisol levels and elevated

resting blood pressure and heart rate, all of which can

increase the risk of developing heart disease.

Several longitudinal studies have shown that anxiety

can be predictive of new onset of CHD. In the

Normative Aging Study, a large prospective study conducted

in the Boston area, higher levels of worry (an

important component of anxiety) were predictive of

increased risks of both myocardial infarction (MI) and

fatal CHD in male subjects at 20-year follow-up. 2 Men

reporting highest levels of worry had adjusted relative

risks of MI more than doubled (RR = 2.41) compared

with those with lowest levels of worry. Despite these

findings, we still tend to tell our patients (perhaps

erroneously) that panic attacks won’t kill them, to not

worry, “your heart is fine.” This especially plays out

in the emergency room, where the chest pain patient

is ruled out for myocardial damage, and panic and

anxiety is strongly suspected as the culprit of the chest

pain symptoms.

A very recent study supported the notion that panic

attacks may be an independent risk factor for cardiovascular

morbidity and mortality. In the Women’s

Health Initiative Study, a six-month history of fullblown

panic attacks was associated with three- to

four-fold increase in risks of CHD or stroke. 3

Anxiety also is relevant in clinical care for patients

with heart disease. Up to 10 percent of patients after

MI suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, which

further interferes with treatment compliance and

leads to poor outcomes. 4 Many patients also have

high anxiety in anticipation of coronary artery bypass

grafting surgery (CABG). A recent study showed that

pre-operative anxiety was associated with higher post-

CABG mortality, whereas pre-operative depression

was not. 5 However, research in this area is still in its

early stages, and the relationship between anxiety and

CHD as well as mortality may be more complicated

than we expected.

Recently, we found in a prospective cohort study that

there were interesting gender differences in linking

anxiety to long-term mortality in a group of community-dwelling

elderly. 6 These results were presented

at the 2008 American Psychosomatic Society annual

8 INsIghts | ClEvElaNd ClINIC dEpartmENt of psyChIatry aNd psyChology

meeting in Baltimore. Increasing anxiety symptoms

over time were associated with a 42 percent higher

risk of all-cause mortality at the 15-year follow-up in

men, but not in women. In contrast, higher anxiety

levels at baseline were actually associated with lower

mortality in women, but not in men. A potential

explanation is that men and women deal with anxiety

differently, and that moderately higher anxiety in

women may motivate them to seek more healthcare,

which may result in early diagnosis and intervention

for certain illnesses, which, in turn, leads to lower

mortality. More research is needed to replicate the

finding and elucidate the potential mechanisms.

The relationship of depression, well established, and

now anxiety seems to be an important factor in the

management of cardiac patients. We need to screen

for these disorders more effectively, continue to study

the links that tie anxiety to cardiac disease, and develop

effective treatment strategies that can improve the

quality of life of the anxious and depressed cardiac

patient, as well as improve outcomes.

Biofeedback-assisted stress management in the

treatment of heart failure

by michael g. mcKee, phd, and Christine s. moravec, phd

over the past 10 years, a wealth of studies has established that psychological stress, whether acute or chronic,

is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease. studies estimate that psychological stress confers a risk

for the development or worsening of cardiovascular disease that is equal to the risk rendered by hypertension

or smoking.

The physiological link between mental stress and cardiovascular

disease still needs to be fully elucidated,

but evidence favors a role of the sympathetic nervous

system in increasing cardiovascular reactivity,

enhancing platelet activation and contributing to the

development of both atherosclerotic plaque and lifethreatening


Patients diagnosed with heart failure face a multitude

of uncertainties leading to mental stress. Incomplete

understanding of what the diagnosis means; concern

about rapidly evolving limitations in daily living; coping

with new medications and their potential side

effects; and accepting the very real possibility of needing

a pacemaker, a mechanical assist device or even

a transplant all contribute to chronic psychological


In heart failure patients, however, this psychological

stress and its biological consequences compound the

effects of an already over-active sympathetic nervous

system. In an unfortunate synergy, decreased cardiac

function activates the sympathetic nervous system in

a compensatory attempt to increase cardiac pumping

and end-organ perfusion, while mental stress elicits

the age-old “fight-or-flight” response, which served

our ancestors well in escaping physical stressors, but

is of little use in combating mental stress. The sympathetic

nervous system, activated in two ways, pumps

out catecholamines and activates adrenergic receptors

throughout the body. The end result is a worsening

of the disease process and extreme energy depletion

in the myocardium. Beta-blocking drugs, which

have only emerged as a treatment for heart failure in

the past few decades, counteract these deleterious

effects and improve symptoms.

In the population of patients with heart failure,

biofeedback-assisted stress management can serve as

a “physiologic beta blocker,” decreasing sympathetic

activation and also giving the patient a greater sense

of control over his or her physiology. Biofeedbackassisted

stress management involves a coupling

between routine techniques of stress management

(cognitive behavioral therapy, progressive muscle

relaxation, slow breathing, imagery) and physiological

measurements that allow the patient to actually see

the relationship between his or her degree of arousal

and blood pressure, heart rate, skin temperature or

muscle tension.

Patients are taught to recognize and understand the

relationship between their psychological stress level,

their ability to relax and the resulting changes in their

physiological measurements. Many patients learn for

the first time that their thought patterns can impact

their body. The feedback provided guides patients in

learning mastery of their own physiology. Over a series

signal coming from the patient’s trapezius muscles is displayed in green.

The goal is to get the green signal to decrease, indicating less muscle

tension. The therapist helps the patient to understand what types of

adjustments in breathing, relaxation and thinking will help to decrease

muscle tension.

activation of their sympathetic nervous system, with

resulting changes in their physiology.

One of our current studies is testing the effectiveness

of heart rate variability biofeedback in patients with a

new diagnosis of heart failure. Another of our current

studies is testing the ability of a more simple form of

biofeedback, using skin temperature and muscle tension,

in patients with end-stage heart failure awaiting

heart transplantation. In both cases, we hypothesize

that teaching the patients to decrease the activation

of their own sympathetic nervous system and to alter

the balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic

nervous systems in a favorable direction will

result in enhanced quality of life, decreased symptoms

and possibly biological changes in the markers

of heart failure progression.

These studies are funded by the American Heart

Association and the Cleveland Clinic Bakken Heart-

Brain Institute.

Biofeedback: a Useful tool for psychophysiological Insomnia

By Kumar Budur, md


everyone has occasional nights when racing thoughts and worries keep them awake, but persistent life stress

and anxiety can trigger insomnia that is disabling. psychophysiological insomnia accounts for about 15 percent

of the chronic insomnia seen at sleep disorders centers, and can be very difficult to treat. hypnotic medications,

typically the first line of treatment, have many limitations and often are ineffective.

Cleveland Clinic’s Sleep Disorders Center recently

has incorporated biofeedback therapy in its interdisciplinary

approach to this difficult problem. Novel

application of this tried-and-true technology helps

patients learn to relax — both at night and during the

day. We are one of just three centers offering this type

of approach to stress-and-anxiety-related insomnia in

the United States.

Biofeedback therapy involves the monitoring of body

functions that reflect tension and arousal (heart rate,

blood pressure, body temperature and muscle activity).

Brain activity is monitored with electroencephalogram

(EEG). All of this information is displayed

for the patient, who then is instructed on how to

perform relaxation techniques such as deep breathing,

progressive muscle relaxation and meditation.

The patient receives immediate feedback as to the

impact of relaxation on the multiple psychophysiologic

measures clearly displayed on monitors. Such a

quantitative display of progress encourages patients

to continue with the relaxation techniques, yielding

even greater results.

Patients are educated to continue these techniques

at home for maximum achievement of nighttime

restfulness. Since many are “night owls,” they also are

coached to readjust their body clocks to be less active

in the evening hours.

Although biofeedback therapy has long been used for

insomnia, research on its efficacy is limited and no

guidelines are available on patient characteristics, or

ideal number or type of sessions.

This prompted us to perform a retrospective chart

review of 30 patients with a primary diagnosis of psychophysiological

insomnia referred for biofeedbackbased

treatment. Seventy percent rated themselves

as “very much improved” or “improved” after three

sessions. They reported sleeping better without medications.

Patients with problems of somatized tension

responded best. Many also stated that relaxation

techniques helped them cope with daytime stress and

anxiety, allowing them, we believe, to overcome this

important component of the cycle of insomnia.

Bipolar disorder during pregnancy: risk of recurrence

By adele C. viguera, md, mph

cleveland clinic’s center for the care and study of Women’s mental health integrates research into clinical

services. For more than a decade, this sub-specialty center has provided outpatient services including clinical

assessment, consultation and treatment for women presenting with a wide range of reproductive-associated

psychiatric syndromes. This includes premenstrual dysphoric disorder, antenatal mood disorders, postpartum

depression, and peri- and postmenopausal mood disturbance.

One area of particular research interest is bipolar

disorder and its course and management during

pregnancy and the postpartum period. In December

of 2007, colleagues and I published a landmark prospective

study in the American Journal of Psychiatry

examining the risk of recurrence among women with

a history of bipolar disorder that continued or discontinued

treatment with mood stabilizers during pregnancy.

1 We found that the overall risk of recurrence

during pregnancy was 71 percent. Women who discontinued

mood stabilizer treatment had a two-fold

greater recurrence risk and four-fold shorter time to

first recurrence compared with women who continued

mood stabilizers during pregnancy.

Additionally, the proportion of weeks ill during pregnancy

was five times greater among women who discontinued

mood stabilizer compared with women who

maintained mood stabilizer treatment. Most recurrences

were depressive or mixed states, and the majority

of episodes occurred during the first trimester.

These findings have important clinical implications

and suggest that recurrence risk can be reduced

markedly by continued mood stabilizer treatment.

Therefore, treatment planning for pregnant women

with bipolar disorder should consider not only the relative

risks of fetal exposure to mood stabilizers, but also

the high risk of recurrence and morbidity associated

with stopping maintenance mood stabilizer treatment.

Adele C Viguera, MD, MPH, is a psychiatrist with

Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Psychiatry and

Psychology. Her specialty interests are reproductive

related mood disorders including premenstrual dysphoric

disorder, perinatal mood disorders, menopause

and bipolar disorder and its course and management

during pregnancy and the postpartum period. She can

Innovative new

buildings improve patient

access, experience.

This fall, Cleveland Clinic is introducing the future of healthcare with the opening of the Sydell and

Arnold Miller Family Pavilion and the Glickman Tower.

These buildings, which represent the largest construction and philanthropy project in Cleveland Clinic

history, embody the pioneering spirit and commitment to quality that define Cleveland Clinic. These

structures are a tangible expression of institutes, our new model of care that organizes patient services

by organ and disease.

At 1 million square feet, the Miller Family Pavilion is the country’s largest single-use facility for heart

and vascular care. The 12-story Glickman Tower, new home to the Glickman Urological & Kidney

Institute, is the tallest building on Cleveland Clinic’s main campus. Both will help us improve patient

experience by increasing our capacity and by consolidating services, so patients can stay in one location

for their care.

With 278 private patient rooms, more than 90 ICU beds and a combined total of nearly 200 exam

rooms and more than 90 procedure rooms, patients will have faster access to Cleveland Clinic cardiac

and urological services.
