OBJECTIVE: To examine the utility of the new Movement Disorder Society (MDS) diagnostic criteria in a large cohort of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. METHODS: Recently diagnosed (<3.5 years) PD cases fulfilling United Kingdom (UK) brain bank criteria in Tracking Parkinson's, a UK multicenter prospective natural history study were assessed by retrospective application of the MDS criteria. RESULTS: In 2000 cases, 1835 (91.7%) met MDS criteria for PD, either clinically established (n = 1261, 63...

BACKGROUND: According to standard mortality statistics based on the underlying cause of death (UCOD), mortality from Parkinson's disease (PD) is increasing in most European countries. However, mortality trends are better investigated taking into account all the diseases reported in the death certificate (multiple causes of death approach, MCOD). METHODS: All deaths of residents in the Veneto Region (Northern Italy) aged≥45 years with any mention of PD were extracted from 2008 to 2015...

BACKGROUND: Exaggerated startle reactions have been frequently described in patients with functional movement disorders (FMD). Long onset latencies and inconsistent recruitment pattern are thought to be a hallmark in these patients. The auditory startle reflex has not been systematically assessed though. OBJECTIVES: Assessing the frequency and pattern of the early and late component of the auditory startle response in patients with functional jerky movement disorders...

INTRODUCTION: This study of thalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS) investigated whether a novel constant-current device improves tremor and activities of daily living (ADL) in patients with essential tremor (ET). METHODS: A prospective, controlled, multicenter study was conducted at 12 academic centers. We investigated the safety and efficacy of unilateral and bilateral constant-current DBS of the ventralis intermedius (VIM) nucleus of the thalamus in patients with essential tremor whose tremor was inadequately controlled by medications...

BACKGROUND: Treatment options are rare in degenerative ataxias, especially in advanced, multisystemic disease. Exergame training might offer a novel treatment strategy, but its effectiveness has not been investigated in advanced stages. METHODS: We examined the effectiveness of a 12-week home-based training with body-controlled videogames in 10 young subjects with advanced degenerative ataxia unable or barely able to stand. Training was structured in two 6-weeks phases, allowing to adapt the training according to individual training progress...

INTRODUCTION: Mutations in the C19orf12 gene cause mitochondrial membrane protein associated neurodegeneration (MPAN), an autosomal recessive form of neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA). A limited number of patients with C19orf12 mutations, particularly those with adult onset of symptoms, have been reported. METHODS: We sequenced the entire coding region of C19orf12 in 15 Turkish adult probands with idiopathic NBIA. We also performed haplotype analysis in families with a recurrent C19orf12 mutation...

INTRODUCTION: Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) comprises a heterogeneous group of disorders with accumulation of iron in the brain, mostly basal ganglia. NBIA subtype mitochondrial membrane protein-associated neurodegeneration (MPAN) is caused by recently discovered mutations in C19orf12, which encodes a protein localized in the mitochondrial membrane. METHODS: The present and past radiological features of 14 MPAN patients were analyzed. RESULTS: Clinical evaluation did not reveal novel findings: spastic para- and tetraparesis with muscle atrophy are typical for MPAN...

BACKGROUND: Although dyskinesias-reduced-self-awareness (DRSA) in Parkinson's disease (PD) is related to deficit in metacognition, other factors, such as "Theory of Mind" (ToM), could operate. METHODS: Forty-one PD patients were assessed using the Global Awareness of Movement Disorders (GAM) and the Dyskinesias Subtracted-Index (DS-I). To study whether GAM and DS-I scores could be influenced by second-type ToM or Reading the Mind in the Eyes (RME) tasks, we conducted two multiple logistic regression analyses...

AIM: To assess functional rearrangement following neurodegeneration in the thalamus and dentate nucleus in patients with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and corticobasal syndrome (CBS). METHODS: We recruited 19 patients with PSP, 11 with CBS and 14 healthy subjects. All the subjects underwent resting-state (rs) fMRI using a 3T system. Whole brain functional connectivity of the thalamus and dentate nucleus were calculated by means of a seed-based approach with FEAT script in FSL toolbox...

INTRODUCTION: Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Therapies (POLST) or Goals of Care (GOC) are legal documents to guide intensity of interventions (ICU, resuscitation, hospitalization or comfort care) completed by healthcare professionals following counseling of patients or their designated medical decision makers. Capacity (understanding, appreciation, reasoning and expressing a choice) to consent to POLST or GOC has not been determined among Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. We sought to assess GOC PD decisional capacity for those with cognitive complaints but not dementia...
