In the light of studies published in the last ten years, we have suspected a differential influence of the sides of hemispheric cerebral lesions on posture and balance. A study was aimed at verifying this hypothesis, the method of which being original because many possible confounding factors such as age, sex as well as topography and size of the brain(More)
INTRODUCTION The Motor Function Measure (MFM) is widely used to assess severity and progression of neuromuscular diseases. Validity was established in a group of patients aged 6-60 years with suspected or confirmed diagnosis of neuromuscular diseases, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy being the most frequent diagnosis in the population tested. OBJECTIVES Our(More)
The aim of this study is to report the association of diffuse dystonia and tremor in a bilateral and extended lesion of the posterior mesencephalon. After surgery on a meningioma of the upper part of the fourth ventricle, this patient presented with facial dystonia, predominating on orbicularis muscles and peribuccal area, and limb dystonia, with tonic(More)
A decrease in sensory nerve action potentials (SNAP) amplitude has been recently reported in some patients during the course of multifocal motor neuropathy with conduction blocks (MMNCB). It is not known if those patients have different clinical expression and disability when compared with typical MMNCB. Clinical, biological and electrophysiological(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The organization of poststroke care will be a major challenge in coming years. We aimed to assess hospital disposition after stroke and its associated factors in clinical practice. METHODS All cases of stroke from 2006 to 2010 were identified from the population-based Stroke Registry of Dijon, France. Demographic features, risk(More)
There is a need of standardized and quantitative clinical assessments of ALS patients receiving new treatments. Some clinical scales, that are based on patients interviews and/or on physical examination, allow to quantify the patient functional status over time. The ALSFRS has been validated for that purpose and is one the most commonly used scales in(More)
OBJECTIVE The upper limb function of hemiplegic patients is currently evaluated using scales that assess physical capacity or daily activities under test conditions. The present scale, the Upper Limb Assessment in Daily Living (ULADL) Scale, was developed to explore the subjective and objective functional capacities of such patients in a proximal to distal(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze the ipsilateral upper limb and head kinematics in patients presenting with spatial neglect, using pointing and grasping to object. Four patients were included and compared to an equivalent number of normal subjects. Head, shoulder, and wrist movements were recorded using a three-dimensional VICON system. Objects to be(More)
