To compare frequency and degree of orthostatic hypotension (OH) in Parkinson's disease (PD) and Parkinson's disease with dementia (PDD) and its effect on attention and word fluency, blood pressure (BP) and heart rate changes during tilt were determined in 10 PD and 8 PDD patients. Attention and word fluency were evaluated in supine and tilted position using(More)
Duodenal levodopa infusion represents an effective strategy to manage motor and non-motor complications in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease (PD).

OBJECTIVE Characterization of delayed reaction to shrapnel retained for many years in soft tissue. PATIENTS Four patients sustained penetrating injuries to(More)
Electrodiagnostic evaluation of diaphragmatic function has consisted of phrenic nerve stimulation and surface or esophageal recordings of the electrical activity of the diaphragm. Needle electromyography of the diaphragm has rarely been reported because of the perceived danger of this procedure. We describe a new technique for needle electromyography of the(More)
The purpose of this randomized phase III trial was to study whether medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) maintenance treatment prolongs the time to progression in advanced breast cancer patients responding to an induction chemotherapy. Patients with progressive advanced breast cancer previously untreated with anthracylines and progestins were given epirubicin(More)
At age 50 two homozygote twin brothers developed bilateral paralysis of the diaphragm. No infectious, metabolic, degenerative or proliferative disorders of the neuromuscular system and no thoracic diseases which could explain this lesion were detected during four years of follow-up. It appears thus to be an isolated lesion of genetic origin. To the best of(More)
