BACKGROUND: Gait disturbance (GD) is usually the first and most prominent symptom observed in idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH). The reversibility of symptoms is related to early diagnosis and treatment. Nowadays early recognition of patients is challenging because GD in the elderly is frequently neglected, leading to late diagnosis and increased disability. In addition, GD is generally assessed by clinical evaluation since computerized gait analysis methods are rarely available...

BACKGROUND: Chemoneurolysis is used to treat focal spasticity in patients with upper motor neuron syndrome. CASE REPORT: Neurolytic substances (phenol/alcohol) injected nearby/in the main trunk of peripheral nerves can cause not only motor but also cutaneous nerves destruction. The latter is thought to be responsible for considerable side effects such as dysesthesia and paresthesia. During injections, targeting the primary motor branches originating from the main trunk while sparing cutaneous nerves will result in decrease/elimination of these side effects and better clinical improvement...
