OBJECTIVES The current review evaluates the safety and efficacy of desmopressin in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) who suffer from both daytime and nocturnal voiding frequency and from incontinence. MATERIALS AND METHODS A literature search was carried out looking for studies published between 1990 and 2003 which evaluated desmopressin in MS(More)
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is currently the only non-invasive in vivo assessment of white matter tract integrity. Capitalizing on the diffusion properties of water within an axon, DTI enables the visualization of tissue structure at a microscopic scale. Furthermore, measurements of anisotropy and diffusivity enable the detection of subtle details of the(More)
Traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) has a number of devastating consequences, including high prevalence of chronic pain and altered pain sensitivity. The causes of altered pain states vary depending on the injury and are difficult to diagnose and treat. A better understanding of pain mechanisms after SCI is expected to lead to better diagnostic capabilities(More)
