Cognitive profile of patients with newly diagnosed Parkinson disease
TLDR
Cognitive impairments are common even in newly diagnosed Parkinson disease patients, with deficits being most prominent in the domains of memory and executive functions. Expand
A multicentre study on suicide outcomes following subthalamic stimulation for Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
The suicide rate following subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's disease was determined by conducting an international multicentre retrospective survey of movement disorder and surgical centres and factors associated with suicide attempts through a nested case-control study. Expand
A comparison of continuous thalamic stimulation and thalamotomy for suppression of severe tremor.
TLDR
Thalamic stimulation and thalamotomy are equally effective for the suppression of drug-resistant tremor, but thalamicstimulation has fewer adverse effects and results in a greater improvement in function. Expand
Accurate differentiation of parkinsonism and essential tremor using visual assessment of [123I]-FP-CIT SPECT imaging: the [123I]-FP-CIT study group.
TLDR
Visual assessment of [123I]-FP-CIT SPECT images is an easily applied diagnostic test which is helpful in the differential diagnosis of tremor disorders and in confirming a clinical diagnosis of a hypokinetic-rigid syndrome. Expand
Determinants of disability and quality of life in mild to moderate Parkinson disease
TLDR
Self-reported mood symptoms and axial impairment were the two factors most closely associated with poorer QoL, but comorbidity and bradykinesia additionally contributed to the explanatory power. Expand
Evolution of mild cognitive impairment in Parkinson disease
TLDR
Almost one-third of patients with newly diagnosed PD fulfill the consensus criteria for PD-MCI; after 5 years, this proportion is approximately 50% of patients without dementia. Expand
Multicentre European study of thalamic stimulation in parkinsonian and essential tremor
TLDR
Thalamic stimulation was shown to be an effective and relatively safe treatment for disabling tremor and initially applied in a very limited number of centres has been successfully used in 13 participating centres. Expand
Multicentre European study of thalamic stimulation in essential tremor: a six year follow up
TLDR
Good reduction in tremor can be maintained for more than six years in the majority of severely disabled patients, and thalamic stimulation can be recommended in essential tremor where there is insufficient response to drug treatment. Expand
Quality of life in patients with Parkinson's disease: development of a questionnaire.
TLDR
The PDQL is a relevant, reliable, and valid measure of the quality of life of patients with Parkinson's disease and correlated highly with the corresponding scales of the standard quality oflife indices. Expand
Pathological gambling after bilateral subthalamic nucleus stimulation in Parkinson disease
TLDR
A patient with advanced Parkinson’s disease who developed pathological gambling within a month after successful bilateral subthalamic nucleus (STN) stimulation appears to be related to a combination of bilateral STN stimulation and treatment with dopamine agonists. Expand
