Apomorphine: a powerful ally in Parkinson's disease
CONCLUSIONS: Apomorphine is a unique drug in the PD treatment scenario, with a number of potential applications beyond motor fluctuations control. Acknowledging these properties, selecting the patient most likely to benefit from it and finding the right timing may be key in the symptomatic control of this complex disease.PMID:33908619 | DOI:10.33588/rn.7209.2020658 (Source: Revista de Neurologia)

Intraparenchymal hemorrhage related to cerebral venous air embolism secondary to mesenteric ischemia
CONCLUSIONS: Mesenteric ischaemia can cause significant pneumatosis intestinalis, which, by a retrograde mechanism through the portal system, can cause air bubbles to reach the cerebral venous system, leading to acute stroke.PMID:33908620 | DOI:10.33588/rn.7209.2020652 (Source: Revista de Neurologia)

New therapeutic approach in Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome with cannabidiol
CONCLUSIONS: Cannabidiol is positioned as an innovative therapy that allows better control of epileptic seizures and comorbidities of DS and LGS, furthermore its efficacy and safety have been evaluated in more than 700 patients. In CTs, cannabidiol significantly reduced the percentage of convulsive seizures and drop seizures compared to placebo in patients with DS and LGS respectively, which could improve their quality of life and that of their family members. The most frequent adverse effects reported were somnolence and decreased appetite. Elevated liver aminotransferase levels were also reported, especially in patients ...

Brief visuospatial memory test-revised (BVMT-R): normalization and standardization for Spanish population
CONCLUSION: The study provides standardized and normalized data for the BVMT-R taking into account the Spanish sociodemographic characteristics. The results confirm the in?uence of age and level of education in the performance of the test, so normative data are provided to correct the BVMT-R taking into account these characteristics.PMID:33908616 | DOI:10.33588/rn.7209.2020527 (Source: Revista de Neurologia)

From in-person didactic sessions to videoconferencing during the COVID-19 pandemic: satisfaction survey among participants
CONCLUSIONS: The change from in-person to virtual sessions is an easy measure to implement in a neurology department, with a good degree of satisfaction among users. There are some unsolved problems with the use of commercial web platforms and inter-hospital connection. Most users recommend leadership and support from educational and health authorities.PMID:33908617 | DOI:10.33588/rn.7209.2020664 (Source: Revista de Neurologia)

Update on vesical electrostimulation and neuropatic bladder in pediatrics: A sistematic review
CONCLUSIONS: Given the potential risk of renal failure presented by paediatric patients with neurogenic bladder, the therapeutic alternatives used in the management of this disease must have a proven efficacy. For this reason, and after the review, due the absence of evidence regarding bladder electrotherapy in this group of patients, its use should be limited and exceptional. Bladder neuromodulation has emerged as a new alternative in the management of adult patients with bladder dysfunctions of neuropathic origin. Despite the fact that numerous studies have proven the efficacy and safety of this therapy in this age group...

Review and update of the criteria for objective cognitive impairment and its involvement in mild cognitive impairment and dementia
CONCLUSIONS: From an initial search of 1954 articles, 17 were eventually reviewed. The original diagnostic criteria required low scores in one neuropsychological task, biasing MCI towards the amnesic type. Subsequent criteria expanded the number of tests in the battery, which allowed classifying MCI into amnesic and non-amnesic type, as well as into 'single-' and 'multiple' subtypes. Since increasing number of tests affected the probability of diagnostic errors, subsequent criteria incorporated normal variability for the identification of objective cognitive impairment. This work offers a critical review of the strengths a...

Review and update of the criteria for objective cognitive impairment and its involvement in mild cognitive impairment and dementia
CONCLUSIONS: From an initial search of 1954 articles, 17 were eventually reviewed. The original diagnostic criteria required low scores in one neuropsychological task, biasing MCI towards the amnesic type. Subsequent criteria expanded the number of tests in the battery, which allowed classifying MCI into amnesic and non-amnesic type, as well as into 'single-' and 'multiple' subtypes. Since increasing number of tests affected the probability of diagnostic errors, subsequent criteria incorporated normal variability for the identification of objective cognitive impairment. This work offers a critical review of the strengths a...
