Botulinum toxin type A or selective neurotomy for treating focal spastic muscle overactivity?
ConclusionBotulinum toxin type A has the highest level of evidence and the largest range of indications. However, the botulinum toxin effect is reversible and seems less effective, which supports a permanent surgical treatment such as selective neurotomy, especially for the spastic foot. Further research is needed to compare the effect of botulinum toxin type A and selective neurotomy for the different types of spastic muscle overactivity and clinical patterns.

Adjunct therapies to improve outcomes after botulinum toxin injection in children: a systematic review
ConclusionLower-limb posture with casting in children has a high level of evidence, but the long-term efficacy of short-leg casting needs to be evaluated. A comparison between the different modalities of casting is missing, and studies specifically devoted to testing the different kinds of casting are needed. Moreover, the delay to casting after BTX injection is not clear. Data on electrical stimulation are not conclusive. Despite the small number of studies, resistance training could be an interesting adjunct therapy notably to avoid loss of strength after BTX injection. Rehabilitation programmes after BTX injection still...

Short-term pain evolution in chronic low back pain with Modic type 1 changes treated by a lumbar rigid brace: a retrospective study
ConclusionIn the present study, a rigid lumbar brace worn for 3 months was associated with a 30% reduction in pain for 79% of patients with chronic low back pain and active discopathy. However, the retrospective open and uncontrolled design of our study limits our interpretation about a specific treatment effect. A prospective randomized controlled trial is needed to clarify the effect of a rigid lumbar brace in this condition. (Source: Annals of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine)

Boosting syntax training with temporally regular musical primes in children with cochlear implants
ConclusionsThe findings extend the previously observed beneficial short-term effects of regular musical primes in the laboratory to long-term training effects. Results suggest that the musical primes improved the processing of the syntactic training material, thus enhancing the training effects on grammatical processing as well as phonological processing and sequencing of speech signals. The findings can be interpreted within the dynamic attending theory (postulating the modulation of attention over time) and associated oscillatory brain activity. Furthermore, the findings encourage the use of rhythmic structures (even in ...

Cognitive assessment in patients with multiple sclerosis: From neuropsychological batteries to ecological tools
ConclusionRecent efforts have been made to detect and characterize cognitive deficits in PwMS. Some IPS and episodic memory NP tests have been validated in MS and should be proposed to patients in the clinical setting. Besides NP tests, ecological tools are becoming important for detecting cognitive dysfunction in everyday-like conditions. Further research is needed to validate relevant tools for monitoring cognition in MS and the ability to detect clinically meaningful change in longitudinal studies.
