PURPOSE: This study aimed to develop a conceptual understanding of the specific characteristics of palliative care in neurology and the challenges of providing palliative care in the setting of neurological illness. METHOD: The study was conducted at London Health Sciences Centre in Canada using grounded theory methodology. Qualitative thematic analysis was applied to focus group (health care providers physicians, nursing, allied health, trainees) and semi-structured interview (patient-caregiver dyads) data to explore challenges facing the delivery of palliative care in neurology...

BACKGROUND: Clinical disagreement over antiplatelet (AP) resumption in patients with primary intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) has long existed. This meta-analysis aimed to evaluate the benefits of AP resumption on preventing ischemic or thromboembolic events against its risks of promoting ICH recurrence or hematoma expansion. METHODS: All relevant articles published in Pubmed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, and Science Direct from January 1950 to March 2017 were sourced, and the combined relative risk (RR) was calculated...

Viral infectious vasculitis is a cause of stroke in children. Zika virus infection is often asymptomatic. Neurological complications have however been reported: Guillain-Barré, ADEM, meningoencephalitis, myelitis, microcephaly in the fetus of infected mothers. We discuss the case of a child presenting acute infection with ZIKV that was associated with a stroke. A 10-months-old boy without medical history presented after 2days of fever and cutaneous rash, conjunctivitis on day 5, a right hemiparesis on day 6...

BACKGROUND: Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is characterized by unpredictable attacks on the optic nerves and spinal cord, causing accumulations of neurological disability that may lead to blindness and paralysis. We examined comorbidities and health care use among patients with highly active NMO, defined as at least two relapses within 12months of the patient's first NMO encounter in the database. METHODS: This retrospective study of a US administrative claims database compared patients with highly active NMO to matched individuals without NMO...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) has been recognized as a disease characterized by severe visual afferent impairment. Abnormal eye movements, as the other important neuro-ophthalmic manifestation of NMOSD, were commonly overlooked. The aim of our study was to describe the ocular motor manifestations of AQP4-IgG positive NMOSD patients, and explore the value of eye movement abnormalities in the evaluation of the disabled disease. METHODS: Systemic clinical bedside ocular motor examinations and quantitative horizontal saccadic eye movement assessments were performed in 90 patients with AQP4-IgG positive NMOSD...

Viliuisk encephalomyelitis (VE) is a neurodegenerative disease that afflicts aboriginal people of Yakutia in Siberia with unknown etiology. Oligoclonal IgG bands (OCBs) were discovered in the VE patients (Green et al., 2003). In this study we analysed the association of OCBs with clinical symptoms in 58 VE patients. Positive oligoclonal IgG are associated with a shorter duration of disease (p=0.002), older age of onset (p=0.023) and high frequency of main neurological VE symptoms such as dementia, frontal dysbasia, bulbar disorders, muscle atrophy and centrally caused pelvic disorders...

Pain is a common complication in patients following spinal cord injury (SCI), with studies citing up to 80% of patients reporting some form of pain. Neuropathic pain (NP) makes up a substantial percentage of all pain symptoms in patients with SCI and is often complex. Given the high prevalence of NP in patients with SCI, proper identification and treatment is imperative. Indeed, identification of pain subtypes is a vital step toward determining appropriate treatment. A variety of pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments can be undertaken including antiepileptics, tricyclic antidepressants, opioids, transcranial direct current stimulation, and invasive surgical procedures...

We investigated the relationship between the involvement of the cauda equina in chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) and the increment of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protein. We measured cauda equina conduction time (CECT) in 14 CIDP patients using magnetic stimulation with a MATS coil. Statistical analysis revealed that CECT and CSF protein had a significant positive linear correlation. Conduction time of the peripheral nerve trunk, in contrast, had no significant linear correlation with CSF protein...

Cystatin C (CST3) is a cysteine protease inhibitor that regulates lysosomal enzyme activity and is reported to be involved in the process of neurodegeneration. In the present study, we investigated whether CST3 interacts with other proteins and affects neurodegeneration in vitro and under disease conditions. We intended to identify any protein that interacts with CST3 by using a yeast two-hybrid system, and found prosaposin (PSAP) as a candidate protein. The binding of CST3 and PSAP was confirmed using an immunoprecipitation-based in vitro assay...

BACKGROUND: There is a need for biomarkers that can classify optic neuritis (ON) attacks as belonging to either neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder with optic neuritis (NMOSD-ON) or relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis with optic neuritis (MS-ON). This study uses spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) data to perform a preliminary contrast between NMOSD-ON and MS-ON by analyzing peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer and intra-macular layer patterns of injury. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, we used SD-OCT to obtain peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer and intra-macular layer data for 26 NMOSD-ON, 25 MS-ON, and 26 healthy control (HC) age-matched eyes...

BACKGROUND: Early identification of patients with cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is relevant considering the increased risk for cerebral hemorrhage. A new set of diagnostic criteria for CAA was recently proposed, which include the presence of superficial siderosis. We aimed to assess the impact of applying these criteria regarding use of antithrombotic therapy. METHODS: Review of consecutive patients admitted to a Neurology Department from 2014 to 2016, with acute parenchymal or subarachnoid hemorrhage and/or atypical transient focal neurological episodes...
