BACKGROUND The pathophysiology of periodic limb movements in sleep (PLMS) in restless legs syndrome (RLS) is unclear. OBJECTIVE The authors neurophysiologically investigated PLMS in patients with idiopathic RLS in order to obtain information on the origin and pathophysiology of the movements. METHODS Ten patients with idiopathic RLS underwent(More)
In previous studies, addressing the association between orthostatic hypotension and cognitive decline, patients underwent neuropsychological evaluation in sitting position, and blood pressure values and cognition were not measured concurrently. Furthermore, no studies assessed the acute effects of orthostatic hypotension on cognitive performances. The aim(More)
OBJECTIVE aims of the current study were 1) to evaluate global cognitive function in patients with autonomic failure (AF) of peripheral origin and 2) to investigate the effect of a documented fall in blood pressure (BP) fulfilling the criteria for orthostatic hypotension (OH) on cognitive performances. METHODS we assessed 12 consecutive patients (10(More)
