AimCognitive impairments have been established as part of the non‐motor phenomenology of adult dystonia. In childhood dystonia, the extent of cognitive impairments is less clear. This systematic review aims to present an overview of the existing literature to elucidate the cognitive profile of primary and secondary childhood dystonia. MethodStudies focusing on cognition in childhood dystonia were searched in MEDLINE and PsychInfo up to October 2017. We included studies on idiopathic and genetic forms of dystonia as well as dystonia secondary to cerebral palsy and inborn errors of metabolism. ResultsThirty‐four studies ...

Authors: Banzhoff S, Del Mar Ropero M, Menzel G, Salmen T, Gross M, Caffier PP Abstract Playing a musical instrument can affect physical and mental health. A literature review was conducted to determine the prevalence of health problems among oboists, which medical conditions can be caused or exacerbated by playing, whether oboe playing can be a protective factor, and whether recommendations are possible as to who should or should not play the oboe. Searches in 7 databases (Medline, Embase, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, SocIndex, PsyIndex, Psychinfo) yielded a total of 950 studies; after exclusion of duplicates...

DYT-PRKRA (DYT16) is considered a rare cause of dystonia-parkinsonism. The significance of this gene as a cause of dystonia and its phenotypical characterization must be determined in larger cohorts. We aimed to investigate the role of PRKRA in patients with dystonia.

Boston Scientific won FDA approval for its Vercise Deep Brain Stimulation System for treatment of Parkinson’s. The implantable stimulator can be programmed in a variety of ways to target different regions of the subthalamic nucleus. This may help to reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s by delivering therapy in an optimal way for each patient. The implant is rechargeable and can last for more than 15 years. Each of the eight electrodes on the leads can be controlled independently. The electrodes make contact with brain tissue along a 15.5 millimeter length, meaning they’re separated by only .5 millimeters. T...

CONCLUSIONS: We have moderate certainty in the evidence that a single BtA treatment session is associated with a significant and clinically relevant reduction of cervical dystonia-specific impairment, including severity, disability, and pain, and that it is well tolerated, when compared with placebo. There is also moderate certainty in the evidence that people treated with BtA are at an increased risk of developing adverse events, most notably dysphagia and diffuse weakness. There are no data from RCTs evaluating the effectiveness and safety of repeated BtA injection cycles. There is no evidence from RCTs to allow us to dr...
