Abstract We analyzed the frequency of intermediate alleles (IAs) in the ATXN1, ATXN2 and HTT genes in several neurodegenerative diseases. The study included 1,126 Alzheimer disease (AD), 440 frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and 610 Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. In all cohorts, we genotyped ATXN1 and ATXN2 CAG repeats. Additionally, in the FTD cohort we determined the number of HTT CAG-repeats. The frequency of HTT IAs was higher in FTD patients (6.9%) vs controls (2.9%) and in the C9orf72 expa...

Abstract Background The effect of subthalamic deep brain stimulation on balance in Parkinson’s disease remains unclear. Objective To evaluate the effect of subthalamic nucleus stimulation on balance in Parkinson’s disease using posturography. Methods 16 patients (9 women) who underwent subthalamic deep brain stimulation [mean age 59.6 years (46–70); mean disease duration 15.6 years (7–25); mean duration of subthalamic stimulation 32.1 months (3.0–69.6)] and 13 healthy age-matched controls were e...

Background The reasons underlying the loss of efficacy of deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the thalamic nucleus ventralis intermedius (VIM-DBS) over time in patients with essential tremor are not well understood. Methods Long-term clinical outcome and stimulation parameters were evaluated in 14 patients with essential tremor who underwent VIM-DBS. The mean ± standard deviation postoperative follow-up was 7.7 ± 3.8 years. At each visit (every 3–6 months), tremor was assessed using the Fahn-Tolosa-...

Abstract Dopamine dysregulation syndrome is a complication of the dopaminergic treatment for Parkinson's disease, probably related to sensitization of the mesolimbic dopamine system. The relationship between dopamine dysregulation syndrome and deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus remains unclear. We report three patients with Parkinson's disease who developed de novo dopamine dysregulation syndrome after deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus. We hypothesized that the com...

Dopamine dysregulation syndrome is a complication of the dopaminergic treatment in Parkinson's disease that may be very disabling due to the negative impact that compulsive medication use may have on patients' social, psychological, and physical functioning. The relationship between subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation and dopamine dysregulation syndrome in patients with Parkinson's disease remains unclear. Deep brain stimulation may improve, worsen, or have no effect on preoperative dopam...
