Audiological and psychological assessment of tinnitus patients with normal hearing
ConclusionTinnitus in patients with normal hearing may be accompanied by a combination of various subclinical abnormal audiological findings. However, the presence of psychiatric symptoms alone was independently associated with tinnitus distress. (Source: Frontiers in Neurology)

Resting state network mapping in individuals using deep learning
DiscussionThe 3DCNN algorithm can generate individual RSN localization maps, which are necessary for clinical applications. The similarity between 3DCNN mapping results and task-based fMRI responses supports the association of specific functional tasks with RSNs. (Source: Frontiers in Neurology)

Oxidative stress in multiple sclerosis —Emerging imaging techniques
While conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is central to the evaluation of patients with multiple sclerosis, its role in detecting the pathophysiology underlying neurodegeneration is more limited. One of the common outcome measures for progressive multiple sclerosis trials, atrophy on brain MRI, is non-specific and reflects end-stage changes after considerable neurodegeneration has occurred. Identifying biomarkers that identify processes underlying neurodegeneration before it is irreversible and that reflect relevant neurodegenerative pathophysiology is an area of significant need. Accumulating evidence suggests t...

ERCC1 polymorphism and its expression associated with ischemic stroke in Chinese population
ConclusionIt was suggested that the ERCC1 rs3212986 polymorphism was associated with ischemic stroke susceptibility in a Chinese Han population and that an A allele of rs3212986 was related to increased ischemic stroke risk. The altered ERCC1 expression level caused by the rs3212986 polymorphism might participate in the pathophysiological process of ischemic stroke. (Source: Frontiers in Neurology)

Reduced quality of life in myasthenia gravis patients: A study on 185 patients from China
ConclusionHaving trouble using the eyes accounted for the highest score in MG-QOL15, eye symptoms affect QOL more than limb weakness in MG. Daily life activity, disease severity, and employment status were associated with patients' QOL. Adequate treatment should be applied to improve QOL, while mild symptoms can be accepted. Men and patients over the age of 50 years of onset may need more attention. (Source: Frontiers in Neurology)

Effects of auditory rehabilitation with cochlear implant on tinnitus prevalence and distress, health-related quality of life, subjective hearing and psychological comorbidities: Comparative analysis of patients with asymmetric hearing loss (AHL), double-sided (bilateral) deafness (DSD), and single-sided (unilateral) deafness (SSD)
DiscussionOur results demonstrate significant differences between the three groups of CI candidates, which might affect the implantation outcome. These differences suggest a need for personalized psychological counseling during the auditory rehabilitation process, focusing on anxiety and depressive symptoms for SSD and AHL patients.

Case report: Pallidal deep brain stimulation for treatment of tardive dystonia/dyskinesia secondary to chronic metoclopramide medication
We present the case of a woman with metoclopramide-induced TDD, whose symptoms were initially misjudged as “functional.” After 8 years of ineffective medical treatments, she received bilateral implantation of quadripolar electrodes into the posteroventral lateral globus pallidus internus (GPi).ResultsGPi DBS led to significant symptom reduction [Burke–Fahn–Marsden Dystonia Rating Scale (BFMDRS) motor score 24/44 at admission and 7/44 at discharge]. Chronic stimulation led to full recovery from TDD symptoms 9 years after surgery. The BFMDRS motor score decreased to 0.5 (98% improvement).DiscussionPallidal DBS may re...

Transfemoral trans-facial vein-superior ophthalmic vein to embolize cavernous sinus dural arteriovenous fistulas
Cavernous sinus dural arteriovenous fistula (CS-DAVF) is an abnormal communication between the CS and dural arteries from the internal carotid artery and external carotid artery. CS-DAVFs are not uncommon. The preferred treatment for most CS-DAVFs is transvenous embolization (TVE), which can achieve a high cure rate with few complications. The trans-inferior petrous sinus (IPS) route from the internal jugular vein to the CS is the favorite and most direct route to perform TVE in the great majority of CS-DAVFs. However, when the trans-IPS route fails and if the facial vein (FV) is patent and dilated, transfemoral trans-FV-s...

Prevalence, risk factor and outcome in middle-aged and elderly population affected by hemiplegic shoulder pain: An observational study
ConclusionsHemiplegic shoulder pain has a high prevalence and can last for several months. Multiple risk factors are involved. Moreover, hemiplegic shoulder pain affects the readmission rate of patients. Therefore, we should pay more attention to this problem in our clinical work. The application of various means to relieve shoulder pain will be conducive to the recovery of upper limb motor function and shorten the in-hospital rehabilitation time.
