Importance: The ability of present-day etiologic stroke classification systems to generate subtypes with discrete stroke characteristics is not known. Objective: To test the hypothesis that etiologic stroke subtyping identifies different disease processes that can be recognized through their different clinical courses. Design, Setting, and Participants: We performed a head-to-head evaluation of the ability of the Causative Classification of Stroke (CCS), Trial of Org 10172 in Acute Stroke Treatment (TOAST), and ASCO (A for atherosclerosis, S for small-vessel disease, C for cardiac source, and O for other cause) classification systems to generate etiologic subtypes with different clinical, imaging, and prognostic characteristics in 1816 patients with ischemic stroke...

To date, no consensus exists on the key factors for diagnosing advanced Parkinson disease (APD). To obtain consensus on the definition of APD, we performed a prospective, multicenter, Spanish nationwide, 3-round Delphi study (CEPA study). An ad hoc questionnaire was designed with 33 questions concerning the relevance of several clinical features for APD diagnosis. In the first-round, 240 neurologists of the Spanish Movement Disorders Group participated in the study. The results obtained were incorporated into the questionnaire and both, results and questionnaire, were sent out to and fulfilled by 26 experts in Movement Disorders...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to determine if the common insurance practice of requiring precertification before a medically ready stroke patient can be discharged to a skilled nursing facility (SNF) or inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF) causes a delay in discharge. Eliminating delays in discharge of stroke patients is important given the increasing demands for health-care efficiency after the passage of the Affordable Health Care Act. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of 1007 patients who were admitted to our comprehensive stroke center with the primary diagnosis of stroke over a 12-month period was performed...

AIMS: The objectives were to use inexpensive and easy-to-apply tasks in order to investigate the differences between type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) patients and controls regarding attention and impulsivity, which are the basis for key-executive function components that are traditionally assessed using subjective, long and difficult to reproduce questionnaires. Additionally, we sought to correlate these differences with clinical characteristics, and to explore correlations between the tasks...

Rivaroxaban, an inhibitor of Factor Xa, is a direct oral anti-coagulant that has been found to be non-inferior to warfarin in preventing cerebral ischemia in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation and in the subgroup of patients with a history of the previous stroke or transient ischemic attack. Vascular neurologists in daily clinical practice may encounter patients taking rivaroxaban or patients who may benefit from its use. In this paper, we review the current clinical indications, contraindications, and clinical management guidelines for rivaroxaban while providing a special focus on neurological aspects and expert opinions on rivaroxaban therapy management in various situations that a neurologist may encounter when treating patients with an ischemic stroke (including those requiring intravenous or intra-arterial reperfusion therapy) and patients with an intracerebral hemorrhage...

Evoked potentials (EPs) are a powerful and cost-effective tool for evaluating the integrity and function of the central nervous system. Although imaging techniques, such as MRI, have recently become increasingly important in the diagnosis of neurological diseases, over the past 30 years, many neurologists have continued to employ EPs in specific clinical applications. This review presents an overview of the recent evolution of 'classical' clinical applications of EPs in terms of early diagnosis and disease monitoring and is an extension of a previous review published in this journal in 2005 by Walsh and collaborators...

BACKGROUND: Migraines, Which Affect About 10% Of School-Age Children In The United States, Can Significantly Impair Quality Of Life. Despite Potential Disability, Many Children Do Not Receive Treatment Or Prophylaxis, Since Medications Specifically Approved For Children Are Significantly Less Than For Adults. There Is Also Controversy Surrounding The Apparent Widespread Practice Of Prescribing Off-Label Medications For Children With Migraines. However, Little Research Has Been Done To Identify Physician-Prescribing Patterns Of Migraine Medication For Children...

Levodopa/carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) infusion is an effective escalating therapy in patients with Parkinson disease (PD) suffering from motor fluctuations and dyskinesia. Levodopa/carbidopa given continuously as infusion provides an optimized application of the most effective and best tolerable antiparkinsonian drug. It has been proven to have a superior motor effect compared with oral levodopa and to improve also non-motor symptoms. However, invasiveness, discomfort resulting from carrying an external device, and side effects associated with the way of administration limit its application in PD patients...

OBJECTIVES: Hirayama disease is a rare myelopathy, occurring predominantly in males with onset in the teens. METHODS AND RESULTS: Here, we report a young female patient who developed the first signs of Hirayama disease at 10.5 years of age. Prior to onset, she had experienced a growth spurt and grew about 8 cm. The disease progressed over 3 years and the typical clinical, electrophysiological, and neuroimaging signs of Hirayama disease were found. After this period and achievement of her final height, no further progression was noticed...

The aim of this study was to determine whether retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness is correlated with cerebral white matter lesions (WML) in migraine patients. Forty migraine and 40 healthy subjects were included in this study. The difference in RNFL thickness between the control and a migraine group with WML and a migraine group without WML were investigated using analysis of variance (ANOVA). A Tukey post hoc test was conducted to determine from which group the difference originated. Lower RNFL thicknesses were observed in the migraine patient group where WML was detected using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), compared with the control group and with the migraine group with no WML...

We collected and analyzed the questionnaires from the participants in the annual EEG hands-on (5 times) and the regional EEG seminar (6 times). The board-certified neurologists among participants in the regional EEG seminar were always more than those in the annual EEG hands-on. Participants in the regional EEG seminar were more involved in EEGs than those in the annual EEG hands-on. The highly satisfactory lectures in the annual EEG hands-on were "normal EEG" and those in the regional EEG seminar were "EEG of epilepsy"...

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a complex, chronic disease that many patients live with for many years. In this work we propose a mHealth approach based on a set of unobtrusive, simple-in-use, off-the-self, co-operative, mobile devices that will be used for motor and non-motor symptoms monitoring and evaluation, as well as for the detection of fluctuations along with their duration through a waking day. Ideally, a multidisciplinary and integrated care approach involving several professionals working together (neurologists, physiotherapists, psychologists and nutritionists) could provide a holistic management of the disease increasing the patient's independence and Quality of Life (QoL)...

BACKGROUND: The introduction of deep brain stimulation (DBS) about 25 years ago provided one of the major breakthroughs in the treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, a high percentage of patients are reluctant to undergo DBS. Previous research revealed that the critical step on the patient's path to DBS is the decision whether to undergo further diagnostic assessment for surgery at a specialized DBS-center. The aims of the current study were to evaluate how effective the combination of an outpatient DBS screening tool, STIMULUS, with specially developed educational material was to enhance patient education on DBS and to identify motivational aspects which influenced the patients' willingness to undergo further assessment...

This review aims to empower general neurologists to provide better informed person-centred advice on sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) to people with epilepsy in order to help keep them safe. Past and present evidence is consolidated in order to inform readers about SUDEP, and up-to-date insights into the epidemiology, diagnostic classification, pathophysiology, risk factors, influence of co-morbidity, and importance of sensitive person-centred communication are outlined. This review provides "fingertip" information to the practicing neurologist with regards to identifying and communicating risks for SUDEP and suggests practical measures for managing these risks in partnership with the patient...
