Gait and balance disorders are the major source of motor disabilities in advanced forms of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Low-frequency stimulation of the pedunculopontine nucleus area (PPNa-DBS) has been recently proposed to treat these symptoms with variable clinical results. To further understand the effects of PPNa-DBS on resistant gait and balance(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the relation between gaze and posture/gait control in Parkinson disease (PD) and to determine the role of the mesencephalic locomotor region (MLR) and cortex-MLR connection in saccadic behavior because this structure is a major area involved in both gait/postural control and gaze control networks. METHODS We recruited 30 patients(More)
The pathophysiology of gait and balance disorders in elderly people with ‘higher level gait disorders’ (HLGD) is poorly understood. In this study, we aimed to identify the brain networks involved in this disorder. Standardised clinical scores, biomechanical parameters of gait initiation and brain imaging data, including deep white matter lesions (DWML) and(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine the agreement between thermodilution (TD) and thoracic electric bioimpedance (TEB) techniques in cardiac output (CO) measurements in hyperdynamic kidney recipients and normodynamic patients subjected to radical cystectomy. The main objective was to determine the reliability of TEB in CO measurement. DESIGN Open two-group(More)
