Quantifying the risk of neurodegenerative disease in idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder
TLDR
The risk of developing neurodegenerative disease in idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder is substantial, with the majority of patients developing Parkinson disease and Lewy body dementia. Expand
REM sleep behavior disorder and REM sleep without atonia in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
RBD and REM sleep without atonia are frequent in PD as shown by PSG recordings, and their cases may represent preclinical forms of RBD associated with PD. Expand
Sleep and quantitative EEG in neurodegenerative disorders.
TLDR
Current knowledge on sleep problems, sleep architecture changes and quantitative EEG alteration brought on by various neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, REM sleep behavior disorder, and dementia with Lewy bodies are reviewed. Expand
Epidemiology of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
TLDR
It is found that longitudinal change in AHI varies nonuniformly with age, sex and weight: older heavier may experience the highest rate of AHI increase over time and, thus, may benefit most from prospective monitoring. Expand
Polysomnographic diagnosis of idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder
TLDR
The diagnostic value of a visual scoring method for the diagnosis of idiopathic RBD is estimated and cut‐off values to be used in clinical and research set‐ups are established. Expand
Risk factors for neurodegeneration in idiopathic rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder: A multicenter study
TLDR
To assess whether risk factors for Parkinson disease and dementia with Lewy bodies increase rate of defined neurodegenerative disease in idiopathic rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (RBD), a large number of animals were sacrificed for research purposes. Expand
Aggressive dream content without daytime aggressiveness in REM sleep behavior disorder
TLDR
Dreams in patients with REM sleep behavior disorder were characterized by an elevated proportion of aggressive contents, despite normal levels of daytime aggressiveness, which may be related to the hyperactivity of a common neuronal generator. Expand
Periodic leg movements in REM sleep behavior disorder and related autonomic and EEG activation
TLDR
In idiopathic RBD, the reduction of cardiac and EEG activation associated with PLMS suggests the presence of an impaired autonomic and cortical reactivity to internal stimuli. Expand
Idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder
TLDR
Small clinical follow-up studies revealed that a proportion of patients with RBD will eventually develop a parkinsonian syndrome or a dementia of Lewy bodies type in the years following the RBD diagnosis, while some patients will never show other neurologic signs within several decades from the R BD onset. Expand
The effects of pramipexole in REM sleep behavior disorder
TLDR
Surprisingly, a decrease in the percentage of time spent with REM sleep muscle atonia was observed with treatment, and the treatment did not modify the indexes of periodic leg movements. Expand
