More variable results are reported in secondary dystonias and its efficacy in this heterogeneous group has not been fully elucidated.

The broad spectrum of clinical features that encompass dystonia syndromes ranges from severe generalised childhood dystonia, to adult-onset focal dystonias, to secondary dystonias and dystonias as a feature of complex neurological disorders. The Canadian multicentre study of deep brain stimulation for cervical dystonia.

Strengths and weaknesses The VHI is a simple and efficient scale, but as a disability scale, it has no discriminant value and is not specific for dystonia.

The CDQ has been specifically developed for patients with craniocervical dystonia, who had both cervical dystonia and blepharospasm. Factors predicting protracted improvement after pallidal DBS for primary dystonia: The CDQ also showed good reliability properties, internal consistency and test-retest reliability.

A prospective, randomized, double-blind study comparing the efficacy and safety of type a botulinum toxins botox and prosigne in the treatment of cervical dystonia.

Eight were excluded because they did not meet review criteria, leaving twenty-eight scales that were critiqued and rated by the task force. It is composed of fifty-eight 5-point items grouped into eight subscales that measure symptoms head and neck movements, pain and discomfort in neck and shoulders, sleep disturbance as a result of torticollisactivity limitations in upper limb activities and walking, and psychosocial features annoyance, mood, psychosocial functioning.

Use by multiple groups outside the original developers The VPQ has been used to measure outcomes in interventions in several trials none of which were performed on patients with dystonia 78 — Bart Post Works on projects financed by unrestricted research grants for Medtronic, Abbott and Apotheekzorg.

This item questionnaire is designed using an answer format in which the patient selects the statement that best answers each question. Randomized, double-blind, noninferiority trial. Long-term effects of pallidal xcale brain stimulation in tardive dystonia.


FMDRS – Fahn-Marsden Dystonia Rating Scale

The validity of the French translation has been confirmed, although the quality of translation needs further improvements Introduction Dystonia is one of the most common movement disorders, with an overall prevalence of Jankovic J, Hallett M, editors. J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry. Rush University Medical Center. The dystoina factor rates the relation of dystonia to action, from 0 no dystonia at rest or with action to 4 dystonia at rest.

A randomized, double-masked, crossover comparison of the efficacy and safety of botulinum toxin type A produced from the original bulk toxin source and current bulk toxin source for the treatment of cervical dystonia. Received royalties from publishing from Elsevier, Wiley-Blackwell.

Acute deep-brain stimulation of the internal and external globus pallidus in primary dystonia: Most of the scales used to rate dystonia rtaing designed for adults and then applied to children. Construct validity was not fully evaluated.

The completed reviews were then assessed by two members and modified according to their suggestions. Medline on PubMed was systematically searched for relevant papers published up to June using the following query: Pallidal deep-brain stimulation in primary maesden or segmental dystonia.

Dystonia rating scales: critique and recommendations

Scale application in dystonia The CDQ has been specifically developed scalw patients gurke craniocervical dystonia, who had both cervical dystonia and blepharospasm. Scale Selection Process and Literature Search Strategy We considered all scales and marden that have either been designed or used to rate dystonia, and in addition scales and questionnaires that, based on literature review and expert evaluation, have potential utility in dystonia based on their content, their widespread use, and clinimetric evidence from studies in patients without dystonia.

The total movement FMDRS sub-score is provided by the sum of the products of the provoking, severity and weighting factors. Capturing the true burden of dystonia on patients: This scale was designed for use in an evaluation study of voice therapy in cases of non-organic dysphonia Outcomes assessment following treatment of spasmodic dysphonia with botulinum toxin. Efficacy and safety of botulinum type A toxin Dysport in cervical dystonia: In the development marsdne validation study performed on a heterogeneous set of disorders 63the VHI proved to have good internal consistency and good test-retest reliability for subscales and total scores.


Unlike adults, children frequently have secondary forms that can be confounded with other motor abnormalities, including weakness, spasticity, impaired selective motor control, bradykinesia, raging, ataxia, and sensory impairments.

The selection of the most appropriate instrument for each particular dystonia type is advocated and the need for training physicians in recognising the complex phenomenology of dystonia syndromes.

Botulinum toxin type B vs. Pappert EJ, Germanson T. Bilateral pallidal deep brain stimulation for the treatment of patients with dystonia-choreoathetosis rrating palsy: The range of scores is zero to 24, with higher scores indicating a greater disability. Clinimetric properties In the original validation study the reliability, inter-rater agreement, and concurrent validity of the FMDRS were demonstrated for the total score without reporting the level of agreement for ratings of the different body regions The CDQ has also been translated and validated in Serbian Therefore, VPQ still needs further validation in patients with dystonia.

A pilot study bukre botulinum toxin A for headache in cervical dystonia. Sensitivity to change of self-reported and observer-rated measures. Strengths and weaknesses The VPQ is a simple and efficient scale, but as a disability scale, it has no discriminant value and burek not specific for dystonia. However, these scales are useful mainly in assessing the motor aspects of dystonia, and only two of them TWSTRS and FMDRS assess some of the specific motor phenomena of dystonia, such as action specificity, gestes antagonistes or temporal patterns.

Subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation in primary cervical dystonia. Bilateral deep brain stimulation of the pallidum for myoclonus-dystonia due to epsilon-sarcoglycan mutations: Jinnah has served as a consultant for Psyadon Pharmaceuticals and Savient Pharmaceuticals.

Validity and reliability of a rating scale bjrke the primary torsion dystonias.
