BACKGROUND Prior promising results have been reported with deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the anterior limb of the internal capsule in cases with severe obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) who had exhausted conventional therapies. METHODS In this pilot study, six adult patients (2 male; 4 female) meeting stringent criteria for severe (minimum Yale-Brown(More)
Few studies exist in the literature investigating the impact of idiopathic Parkinson's Disease (IPD) on swallow-related quality of life. We therefore aimed in this project to: (1) evaluate swallow-specific quality of life in IPD; (2) delineate potential relationships between IPD duration and severity with swallow-specific quality of life; (3) investigate(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the influence of age on cycling efficiency and sprint power output in well-trained endurance masters athletes. The investigation was conducted on 60 healthy well-trained triathletes separated into six separate groups (n = 10) depending on age: 20–29 years old; 30–39 years old; 40–49 years old; 50–59 years old; 60–69(More)
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has become an important option for medication-refractory essential tremor (ET), but may contribute to worsened gait and falling. This study evaluates impaired gait in a cohort of patients treated with DBS with a retrospective review of ET patients before and after DBS implantation. Factors examined included: age, duration of(More)
This study investigated the influence of distance on self-selected pacing during the swim, cycle and run disciplines of sprint, Olympic and half-Ironman (HIM) distance triathlon races. Eight trained male triathletes performed the three individual races in <2 months. Participants’ bikes were fitted with Schoberer Rad Meßtechnik to monitor speed, power output(More)
This study investigated changes in electrical pain threshold (EPT) after repeated eccentric exercise bouts to test the hypothesis that fascia would become more sensitive than muscle when greater delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is induced. Ten young men performed two eccentric exercise bouts (ECC1, ECC2) consisting of ten sets of six maximal isokinetic(More)
This study investigated biceps brachii distal myotendinous junction (MTJ) displacement during maximal eccentric elbow flexor contractions to test the hypothesis that muscle length change would be smaller (less MTJ displacement) during the second than the first exercise bout. Ten untrained men performed two eccentric exercise bouts (ECC1 and ECC2) with the(More)
