This study focused on the relationship between the asymmetry of initial motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) and premorbid handedness of patients. Structural equation modeling has been used for this purpose. The survey consisting of validated items measuring handedness and questions related to side of occurrence of initial symptoms was administered to(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the Pull Test--Retropulsion Test and the Push and Release Test (P&R) as regards their ability to predict Parkinson (PD) fallers and nonfallers in relation to their medication state. Eighty-two PD patients participated in the study. Fallers (N = 36) and nonfallers (N = 46) were grouped on the basis of their fall history.(More)
The dimensionality and reliability of the Motor Section of the Unified Parkinson Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS III) was studied with non-parametric Mokken scale analysis. UPDRS measures were obtained on 147 patients with PD (96 men, 51 women, mean age 61, range 35-80 yrs). Mokken scale analysis revealed a four-dimensional structure of the UPDRS III.(More)
We analysed clinical data in 80 genetically confirmed Huntington?s disease (HD) patients and measured the severity of the head of the caudate nucleus (HCN) atrophy using computed tomography-guided planimetry. The results were compared with measurements obtained in 43 age-matched healthy subjects. Mean planimetric measurements of the HCN differed(More)
