Movement Disorder Society‐sponsored revision of the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (MDS‐UPDRS): Scale presentation and clinimetric testing results
TLDR
The combined clinimetric results of this study support the validity of the MDS‐UPDRS for rating PD. Expand
Movement Disorder Society‐sponsored revision of the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (MDS‐UPDRS): Process, format, and clinimetric testing plan
TLDR
The MDS‐UPDRS retains the UPDRS structure of four parts with a total summed score, but the parts have been modified to provide a section that integrates nonmotor elements of PD: I, Nonmotor Experiences of Daily Living; II, Motor Exper experiences of daily Living; III, Motor Examination; and IV, Motor Complications.

Depression rating scales in Parkinson's disease: Critique and recommendations
TLDR
A systematic literature review was conducted to explore the use of depression scales in PD and determine which scales should be selected, and found that the complex and time‐consuming task of developing a new scale to measure depression specifically for patients with PD is currently not warranted. Expand
What contributes to quality of life in patients with Parkinson's disease?
TLDR
Depression, disability, postural instability, and cognitive impairment have the greatest influence on QoL in Parkinson's disease, and the improvement of these features should become an important target in the treatment of the disease. Expand
Prevalence of progressive supranuclear palsy and multiple system atrophy: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
The results suggest that the true prevalence of PSP and MSA has been underestimated, since many patients in the community remain undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Expand
Caregiver-burden in parkinson's disease is closely associated with psychiatric symptoms, falls, and disability.
TLDR
It is concluded that more attention should be paid to caregivers' emotional and physical health, particularly in advancing PD with psychiatric complications and falls, and with caregivers' own satisfaction with their marital and sexual relationship. Expand
How does Parkinson's disease affect quality of life? A comparison with quality of life in the general population
TLDR
Quality of life instruments measure the impact of the disease on general well‐being that cannot be fully appreciated by clinical rating scales and allow comparisons with other patient groups and the general population. Expand
Meta-Analysis of Early Nonmotor Features and Risk Factors for Parkinson Disease
TLDR
To evaluate the association between diagnosis of Parkinson disease and risk factors or early symptoms amenable to population‐based screening, a large number of patients with confirmed or suspected Parkinson's disease have received a diagnosis of PD. Expand
The syndrome of fixed dystonia: an evaluation of 103 patients.
TLDR
It is concluded that fixed dystonia usually, but not always, occurs after a peripheral injury and overlaps with CRPS, and seven patients who underwent multidisciplinary treatment, including physiotherapy and psychotherapy, experienced partial or complete remission. Expand
Dopamine dysregulation syndrome, impulse control disorders and punding after deep brain stimulation surgery for Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
DDS, ICDs and punding may persist, worsen or develop for the first time after DBS surgery, although a minority of patients improved dramatically, including physician vigilance, motor outcome and patient compliance. Expand
