[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Alternating hemiplegia of childhood and rapid-onset dystonia parkinsonism are two separate movement disorders with different dominant mutations in the same sodium-potassium transporter ATPase subunit gene, ATP1A3. PATIENT: We present a child with topiramate-responsive alternating hemiplegia of childhood who was tested for an ATP1A3 gene mutation. RESULTS: Gene sequencing revealed an identical ATP1A3 mutation as in three typical adult-onset rapid-onset dystonia parkinsonism cases but never previously described in an alternating hemiplegia of childhood case. CONCLUSION: The discordance of these phenotypes suggests that there are other undiscovered environmental, genetic, or epigenetic factors influencing the development of alternating hemiplegia of childhood or rapid-onset dystonia parkinsonism.

[Ab] Abstract:Stroke rehabilitation has undergone a revolution over the last three decades. Cohort studies have consistently reinforced the importance of post-stroke rehabilitation to stimulate recovery, but the concepts of empirical methods originally proposed by therapists to rehabilitate these patients have not withstood clinical analysis. Functional neuroimaging and animal models have unveiled the mechanisms underlying functional recovery and helped teams understand its limitations and improvement modalities. These neuroscience discoveries constitute the grounds needed to understand the emergence of new technologies: robotics and virtual reality. The objective of this review of the literature was to select key works in this field to better understand current therapeutic possibilities.

[Ab] Abstract:Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is characterized by angiomas affecting the ophthalmic division of the trigeminal nerve, epilepsy, intellectual impairment, hemiplegia and glaucoma. We report a patient who developed SWS without facial hemangioma (SWS type â…¢) in his adulthood. The patient presented with repeated episodes of headache since age 37 year. He manifested first attack of seizure at the age 47 year followed by aphasia and right upper limb palsy. Brain CT scan revealed right parietal-occipital calcification, brain CT angiography showed right temporal lobe and occipital lobe vascular malformation, and MRI showed leptomeningeal enhancement in the riht cerebral piamater. The seizure was controlled with antiepileptic drugs and reviewed in routine follow up.

[Ab] Abstract:The Lokomat is a robotic device that has been widely used for gait rehabilitation in several neurological disorders, with a positive effect also in the chronic phase. We describe the case of a 54-yearold female with post-stroke moderate-to-severe chronic hemiplegia, whose force, gait and balance significantly improved after intensive training with Lokomat Pro. We also noted a positive impact of Lokomat on mood and coping styles. This may be partly related to the task-oriented exercises with computerized visual feedback, which in turn can be considered an important tool for increasing patients' motor output, involvement and motivation during gait training. Augmented feedback during robot-assisted gait appears to be a promising way of facilitating gait and physical function, but also of improving psychological and cognitive status.

[Ab] Abstract:AIM: To investigate the effectiveness and safety of intra-arterial tirofiban and urokinase for thromboembolic complications during detachable coil treatment of ruptured intracranial aneurysms. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Fourteen patients who had a thromboembolic complication during detachable coil treatment of ruptured cerebral aneurysms from May 2011 to October 2013 were enrolled in this study. Within one hour of thrombus formation, patients underwent intra-arterial infusion of tirofiban plus urokinase with digital subtraction angiography monitoring. Blood flow was checked every 5 min with angiography until complete or partial recanalization of the occluded artery occurred. RESULTS: Of the 14 patients, 10 exhibited complete recanalization immediately after the thrombolytic treatment, and had no neurological dysfunction except one patient with mild hemiplegia. Two patients with partial recanalization exhibited mild neurological dysfunction and one died of cardiac infarction during the recovery period. Two patients had intracranial hemorrhage. In one of these, this was caused by rupture of the aneurysm and the patient died during the thrombolytic treatment. In the remaining patient, intracranial hemorrhage was caused by a puncture of the left posterior internal frontal artery caused by mechanical thrombolysis. CONCLUSION: Intra-arterial administration of tirofiban plus urokinase is an effective and safe treatment for thromboembolism during detachable coil treatment of ruptured intracranial aneurysms.

[Ti] Title:Patent foramen ovale increases the risk of acute ischemic stroke in patients with acute pulmonary embolism leading to right ventricular dysfunction.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is an established risk factor for ischemic stroke. Since acute right ventricular dysfunction (RVD) observed in patients with PE can lead to right-to-left inter-atrial shunt via PFO, we hypothesized that PFO is a risk factor for ischemic stroke in PE with significant right ventricular dysfunction. METHODS: 55 patients (31F, 24M), median age 49years (range 19-83years) with confirmed PE underwent echocardiography for RVD and PFO assessment. High risk acute PE was diagnosed in 3 (5.5%) patients, while 16 (29%) hemodynamically stable with RVD patients formed a group with intermediate-risk PE. PFO was diagnosed in 19 patients (34.5%). Diffusion-weighted MRI of the brain for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) was performed in all patients 4.91±4.1days after admission. RESULTS: AIS was detected by MRI in 4 patients (7.3%). Only one stroke was clinically overt and resulted in hemiplegia. All 4 AIS occurred in the PFO positive group (4 of 19 patients), and none in subjects without PFO (21.0% vs 0%, p=0.02). Moreover, all AIS occurred in patients with RVD and PFO, and none in patients with PFO without RVD (50% vs 0%, p=0.038). CONCLUSION: Our data suggest that acute pulmonary embolism resulting in right ventricular dysfunction may lead to acute ischemic stroke in patients with patent foramen ovale. However, the clinical significance of such lesions remains to be determined.

[Ti] Title:Persistent stapedial artery with stapes ankylosis.

[Ab] Abstract:The persistent stapedial artery (PSA) is a very rare, congenital, vascular anomaly. It presents as a pulsatile middle ear mass and sometimes causes conductive hearing loss. The diagnosis of the presence of a PSA is always accidental, because it is so rare and difficult to predict. CT findings include the absence of the foramen spinosum and a soft-tissue prominence in the region of the tympanic segment of the facial nerve. The risks of surgery include facial palsy, hemiplegia caused by coagulation of the PSA, and bleeding due to injury of the carotid artery during surgery in cases of aberrant internal carotid. In this article we report a case of PSA with stapes ankylosis for which we performed malleus-stapedotomy using a Teflon wire piston. We did not coagulate the PSA. Nevertheless the PSA attached to the prosthesis, the patient presented significant improvement in hearing level and had no complaint of pulsating tinnitus. Thus, we have shown that attachment of the prosthesis to the PSA does not necessarily disturb improvement of hearing level after malleus-stapedotomy for otosclerosis with PSA. Based on our experience, many cases can be treated by stapedotomy using a prosthesis and without coagulating the PSA.

[Ab] Abstract:UNLABELLED: Abstract Purpose: This study investigated the effect of an eight-week community-based strength and balance exercise group for children with cerebral palsy (CP). METHOD: Ten children with CP participated in the study (8-15 years; six male; GMFCS I = 6, II = 4; five diplegia; five hemiplegia). Muscle strength was assessed using dynamometry and functional strength tests (seated throw, distance jump, vertical jump). Balance was assessed using the Bruninks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, the Movement Assessment Battery for Children (MABC), lateral and forward reach tests and the Timed-up and Go. RESULTS: Muscle strength improved in dominant side elbow flexors, hip abductors, ankle dorsiflexors and ankle plantarflexors (p = 0.018-0.042). Functional strength improved in seated throw (t = 2.7; p = 0.024), distance jump (t = -2.8; p = 0.025) and lateral step-up (p < 0.05). Balance improved on the MABC (t = 2.4; p = 0.040), lateral (p < 0.05) and forward reach (p < 0.05). CONCLUSION: This feasibility study translated research into sustainable practice, showing that a community-based, low dose, group exercise program can improve the balance and strength of children with CP within current funding capacity. Implications for Rehabilitation It has been known that strength and balance training in the clinical research setting with specialized equipment is effective for children with CP, but this study demonstrates the translation of research into clinical practice in a low-cost, low-dose group program. Significant gains in both muscle strength and balance can be achieved in an eight-week community-based gym group using simple equipment.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Physical illness is linked with an increased risk of suicide; however, evidence from China is limited. AIMS: To assess the influence of physical illness on risk of suicide among rural residents of China, and to examine the differences in the characteristics of people completing suicide with physical illness from those without physical illness. METHOD: In all, 200 suicide cases and 200 control subjects, 1:1 pair-matched on sex and age, were included from 25 townships of three randomly selected counties in Shandong Province, China. One informant for each suicide or control subject was interviewed to collect data on the physical health condition and psychological and sociodemographic status. RESULTS: The prevalence of physical illness in suicide cases (63.0%) was significantly higher than that in paired controls (41.0%; χ² = 19.39, p < .001). Compared with suicide cases without physical illness, people who were physically ill and completed suicide were generally older, less educated, had lower family income, and reported a mental disorder less often. Physical illness denoted a significant risk factor for suicide with an associated odds ratio of 3.23 (95% CI: 1.85-5.62) after adjusted for important covariates. The elevated risk of suicide increased progressively with the number of comorbid illnesses. Cancer, stroke, and a group of illnesses comprising dementia, hemiplegia, and encephalatrophy had a particularly strong effect among the commonly reported diagnoses in this study population. CONCLUSION: Physical illness is an important risk factor for suicide in rural residents of China. Efforts for suicide prevention are needed and should be integrated with national strategies of health care in rural China.
