Nontraumatic intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. Do-not-resuscitate (DNR) orders are linked to poorer outcomes in patients with ICH, possibly due to less active management. Demographic, regional, and social factors, not related to ICH severity, have not been adequately looked at as significant predictors of(More)
Traditional deep brain stimulation requires intraoperative neurophysiological confirmation of electrode placement. Recently, purely image guided methods are being evaluated as to their clinical efficacy in comparison to surgery using microelectrode recordings. We used the ClearPoint(®) system to place electrodes in both the subthalamic nucleus and globus(More)
BACKGROUND Parkinson's disease (PD) represents a major public health challenge that will only grow in our aging population. Understanding the connection between PD and associated prodromal conditions, such as rapid eye movement sleep behavioral disorder (RBD), is critical to identifying prevention strategies. However, the relationship between RBD and(More)
The cortico-striatal network plays a major role in executive functions (EF), and is believed to play a role in the pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, the tools to assess EF are limited. This review assesses the impact of all PD interventions, namely, pharmacotherapy, physical exercise and Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery on EF. The(More)
Paroxysmal exercise-induced dyskinesias (PED) are paroxysmal dyskinesias which manifest as dystonic movements brought on by sustained exercise. ECHS1 deficiency-induced EID was recently described by Olgiati et al. Our patient is an 8-year-old boy, who presented with intermittent episodes of stiffness and contractions affecting the legs which were always(More)
Hemochromatosis is an autosomal recessive disorder which leads to abnormal iron deposition in the parenchyma of multiple organs causing tissue damage. Accumulation of iron in the brain has been postulated to be associated with several neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson's disease. The excess iron promotes Parkin and α-synuclein aggregation in the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE With the "weekend effect" being well described, the Brain Attack Coalition released a set of "best practice" guidelines in 2005, with the goal to uniformly provide standard of care to patients with stroke. We attempted to define a "weekend effect" in outcomes among patients with intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) over the last decade,(More)
While DNR utilization is a complex subjective phenomenon, the effect of such a decision can collectively influence attitudes of care. The role of palliative care in advanced PD has been under appreciated. We reviewed the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project's National Inpatient Sample (NIS) database from 2012 for all hospitalizations ⩾65years. We(More)
Health is basic requirement of any society to develop and progress. Nutrition has major effects on health. Nutrition refers to the availability of energy and nutrients to the body's cells in relation to body requirements. Growth and development of any country is reflected by the growth and development of its children. The present community based(More)
