Outcomes of Enteral Feeding in Motor Neurone Disease

A positive impact of enteral feeding on quality of life but not on survival is demonstrated and the lack of survival advantage should however, not dissuade clinicians from offering enteral feed to patients with MND who manifest dysphagia and/or malnutrition.

Evaluating The Relationship Between Diadochokinesis And Severity Of Dysphagia As It Relates To Forced Vital Capacity In Individuals With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

A clinical assessment battery that can predict swallowing impairment in ALS is developed and potential predictive relationships between dysphagia ratings and other measures in the evaluation and treatment of ALS are investigated.

Investigating cognitive impairments in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) using eye movements and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)

Investigating cognitive impairments in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis using saccadic eye movements and functional magnetic resonance imaging and studying the oculomotor circuit in ALS finds evidence of an ALS-FTLD continuum.

Sclerosi Laterale Amiotrofica, cambiamento di vita e rappresentazione dell’assistenza: uno studio quali-quantitativo su pazienti e caregiver

Patients and caregivers show a cyclic pattern of change of life based on the progression of illness, the emotional and behavioral reactions to the disease and the way of coping through this. The

Epidémiologie comparée de la Sclérose Latérale Amyotrophique en Limousin, Franc - Uruguay

La Sclerose Laterale Amyotrophique (SLA) est la plus frequente des maladies du motoneurone chez l'adulte. Cette affection neurodegenerative touche a la fois les motoneurones peripheriques localises

ALS seems to be a uniform problem across Europe, with age-specific incidence rates showing a progressive increase up to the 70–79 age group, and no consistent epidemiological clues concerning the cause of ALS have been found in epidemiological studies.

Dysphonia of Central Origin

The case of a patient with dysphonia in the context of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis pseudo-syndrom revealing an extra-axial ependymoma of the brainstem is reported, which should be considered before clinical signs of vagus nerve damage associated to another neural tract involvement.

Investigating the Contribution of White Matter Hyperintensities and Cortical Thickness to Empathy in Neurodegenerative and Cerebrovascular Diseases

The results suggest that cortical atrophy and WMH may be associated with empathy deficits in neurodegenerative and cerebrovascular diseases.

Motor-evoked potentials in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: potential implications in detecting subclinical UMN involvement in lower motor neuron phenotype

TMS is a reliable marker of subclinical UMN damage particularly among LMN phenotype and ensure an early ALS diagnosis in ~ 70% of such cases, and the appearance of clinical UMN signs and the level of diagnostic certainty in ALS after 1 year of follow-up are evaluated.
