OBJECTIVE To describe activity of daily living (ADL) and quality of life (QoL) at first visit to a neurological centre, in patients subsequently diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (PD), according to subtype of disease and compared to healthy controls. MATERIALS AND METHODS 99 patients and 31 controls were included. Patients were classified into three(More)
Fifty-eight patients, 36 with essential tremor (ET) and 22 with Parkinson's disease (PD), received deep brain stimulation (DBS) in the thalamic ventral intermediate (Vim) nucleus. The mean follow-up was 17 months for ET and 21 months for PD patients. Stimulation parameters were adjusted as needed, at various intervals after surgery. Results were assessed(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the impact of thalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS) on disability and health-related quality of life in patients with essential tremor. METHODS Twenty seven consecutive patients were evaluated prospectively, before surgery and at a mean of 12 months (range 6-26) after thalamic DBS. Assessment tools included the Fahn-Tolosa-Marìn(More)
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the nucleus ventralis intermedius thalami (Vim) in the treatment of essential tremor (ET) is well documented concerning the acute effects. Reports of the long-term effects are, however, few and the aim of the present study was to analyse the long-term efficacy of this treatment. Nineteen patients operated with unilateral(More)
OBJECTIVES To report long-term effects of thalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS) on activities of daily living (ADL) and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with essential tremor (ET). MATERIALS AND METHODS Nineteen consecutive patients were evaluated at baseline, at a mean of 1 year, then at a mean of 7 years after DBS using Tremor Rating(More)
OBJECTIVES Restless legs syndrome (RLS) has a high prevalence in the general population. Treatment with intrathecal morphine has been shown to be successful in a small number of patients. Our aim was to quantify the effect on RLS-related symptoms, health and quality of life in three patients treated with intrathecal morphine. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three(More)
Access to the published version may require subscription. Abstract. Background: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an established treatment for Parkinson's disease. However, patientsówn perceptions of the impact of DBS on their daily living is not fully explored. Objective: We aimed to collect and analyse patients' narratives about their everyday experiences(More)
OBJECTIVES Surveys of subthalamic nucleus (STN) deep brain stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson's disease (PD) have shown that this procedure is roughly twice more common in men than in women. Here, we investigate possible differences between women and men undergoing STN DBS, with respect to health-related quality of life. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-nine(More)
