Asterixis is a motor control disorder characterized by the presence of abnormal movements of the lower limbs in the vertical plane during posture maintenance. Asterixis is usually bilateral and associated with toxic-metabolic metabolic encephalopathies. Unilateral asterixis is less frequent and it normally indicates focal brain damage. We report the cases(More)
In this article we investigate the changes observed in the scales that quantify the quality of life (PDQ-39) in patients that have already completed 1 and 2 years of bilateral subthalamic stimulation (DBS-STN). Fourteen patients were evaluated 1 year after DBS-STN; the evaluation was repeated on 11 of them, 2 years after surgery. All of them suffered from(More)
INTRODUCTION Clinical outcomes of Parkinson's disease patients treated for 12 months with STN-DBS were analyzed. PATIENTS ADN METHODS: Twelve patients were selected using the CAPSIT protocol criteria and placement of electrodes in the appropriate target was performed according to results of fusion image techniques and intraoperative microrecording.

We report on a clinicopathological case of multiple system atrophy with good response to levodopa and subsequent development of motor complications. Because the subject complied with all the inclusion criteria (Core Assessment Program for Surgical Interventional Therapies in Parkinson's Disease), bilateral subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation(More)
OBJECTIVE Deep brain subthalamic stimulation provides symptomatic relief to patients with Parkinson's disease. The present study analyzes the postoperative outcome of deep brain subthalamic stimulation in patients carrying the R1441G mutation in the leucine-rich repeat kinase-2 (LRRK2) (dardarin) gene. METHODS Five of the 48 patients treated in our unit(More)
INTRODUCTION To investigate neuropsychiatric changes in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients after 12 months of bilateral subthalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS-STN). SUBJECTS Nine out of 23 patients with PD subjected to DBS-STN were included. The mean follow-up of this cohort was 12 months, mean disease duration 14.2 5.5 years and mean UPDRS motor score in(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases is a challenge to the neurologist. In many cases the diagnosis becomes neuropathological only after the autopsy. Several consensus criteria have been defined for the clinical diagnosis of different neurodegenerative diseases, among them the various types of dementia as well as prion-induced(More)
Long-term impact of bilateral subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation (STN-DBS) on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and associated factors in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) are not clear. In this prospective study, we included 69 PD patients (64 % men, mean age 61.3 ± 7.4 and disease duration 13.2 ± 5.7 years) undergoing STN-DBS. They were(More)
We examined 7 patients from a family harboring a novel mutation in the alpha-synuclein gene (E46K) that segregated with a phenotype of parkinsonism and dementia with Lewy bodies. An abnormal restless sleep was the presenting symptom in 2 of them. Polysomnographic (PSG) studies were performed in 4 of the 7 patients and in 2 asymptomatic carriers of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain rapidly the basic clinical information from individual patients and about the total practice in a hospital based neuropediatric out patient clinic. MATERIAL AND METHODS A database file was designed, performed by the medical staff during or immediately after the patients visit. A descriptive study of data obtained through 1995 is(More)
