Reduced Frequency of Ipsilateral Express Saccades in Cervical Dystonia: Probing the Nigro-Tectal Pathway.

Tremor Other Hyperkinet Mov (N Y) 2018 16;8:592. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

School of Engineering, Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin, Dublin, IE.

Background: Cervical dystonia is a hyperkinetic movement disorder of unknown cause. Symptoms of cervical dystonia have been induced in animals in which the integrity of the nigro-tectal pathway is disrupted, resulting in reduced inhibition of the deep layers of the superior colliculus. This same pathway is believed to play a critical role in saccade generation, particularly visually guided, express saccades. Read More

Physical Therapy Management of Congenital Muscular Torticollis: A 2018 Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guideline From the APTA Academy of Pediatric Physical Therapy.

Pediatr Phys Ther 2018 10;30(4):240-290

Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Sciences (Dr Kaplan), Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Newark, New Jersey; Orthotics and Prosthetics Department (Dr Coulter), Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Atlanta, Georgia; Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry (Dr Sargent), University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California.

Background: Congenital muscular torticollis (CMT) is a postural deformity evident shortly after birth, typically characterized by lateral flexion/side bending of the head to one side and cervical rotation/head turning to the opposite side due to unilateral shortening of the sternocleidomastoid muscle; it may be accompanied by other neurological or musculoskeletal conditions. Infants with CMT should be referred to physical therapists to treat these postural asymmetries as soon as they are identified.

Purpose: This update of the 2013 CMT clinical practice guideline (CPG) informs clinicians and families as to whom to monitor, treat, and/or refer and when and what to treat. Read More

Atlanto-axial rotatory fixation complicating ventriculo-peritoneal shunt surgery: a case report and literature review.

Childs Nerv Syst 2018 Oct 1. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Department of Neurosurgery, Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Neurologico Carlo Besta, via Giovanni Celoria 11, 20133, Milan, Italy.

Introduction: Atlanto-axial rotatory fixation (AARF) is a rare complication of ventriculo-peritoneal shunt (VPS) surgery.

Case Presentation: The authors present a unique case of AARF developing early after VP shunting, with persistent torticollis, a "cock-robin" head position, and a thick fibrous band along the catheter path. Due to refractoriness to conservative treatments, AARF, which can be an early-onset complication of VPS surgery, was resolved by removing the distal catheter along with the fibrous band encasing it.

A unique de novo gain-of-function variant in associated with intellectual disability and hyperkinetic movement disorder.

Cold Spring Harb Mol Case Stud 2018 Dec 17;4(6). Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Institut für Neurogenomik, Helmholtz Zentrum München, Munich, 85764, Germany.

Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinases (CaMKs) are key mediators of calcium signaling and underpin neuronal health. Although widely studied, the contribution of CaMKs to Mendelian disease is rather enigmatic. Here, we describe an unusual neurodevelopmental phenotype, characterized by milestone delay, intellectual disability, autism, ataxia, and mixed hyperkinetic movement disorder including severe generalized dystonia, in a proband who remained etiologically undiagnosed despite exhaustive testing.

Botulinum Toxin Injection for Lower Face and Oral Cavity Raynaud Phenomenon After Mandibulectomy, Free Fibula Reconstruction, and Radiation Therapy.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Jan;82(1):53-54

Department of Plastic Surgery, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX.

Isolated lingual and lower face Raynaud phenomenon without primary Raynaud of the digits is a very rare condition associated with chemoradiation therapy (RT) in previous reports. The condition, which more commonly presents in patients with a history of Raynaud disease, is often self-limiting, but vasodilating agents and steroids have been suggested as possible treatment options. Spasmodic torticollis is a different, more common entity, also associated with history of RT or previous head and neck surgery. Read More

Considerations for Testing and Treating Children with Central Vestibular Impairments.

Semin Hear 2018 Aug 20;39(3):321-333. Epub 2018 Jul 20.

Department of Physical Therapy, School of Health Professions, The University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, Alabama.

This perspective explores common pediatric diagnoses that could present with central vestibular pathway dysfunction, leading to delays in motor development and postural control, and gaze instability. Specifically, the following diagnoses are considered: cerebral palsy, myelomeningocele, vestibular migraine, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, developmental coordination disorder, concussion, childhood cancer, congenital muscular torticollis, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, and autism. Suggestions for clinical screening, vestibular function testing, and vestibular rehabilitation for children with these diagnoses are based on evidence for the efficacy of testing and interventions for children with peripheral vestibular hypofunction.

Isolated focal dystonia phenotypes are associated with distinct patterns of altered microstructure.

Neuroimage Clin 2018 5;19:805-812. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

Department of Radiology, University of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora, CO, United States; Department of Radiology, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, United States.

Objective: Isolated adult-onset focal dystonia is considered a network disorder with disturbances to the motor basal ganglia and cerebellar circuits playing a pathophysiological role, but why specific body regions become affected remains unknown. We aimed to use diffusion tensor imaging to determine if the two most common phenotypes of focal dystonia are associated with distinguishing microstructural changes affecting the motor network.

Methods: Fifteen blepharospasm patients, 20 cervical dystonia patients, and 30 age- and sex-matched healthy controls were recruited. Read More

Injectable DaxibotulinumtoxinA in Cervical Dystonia: A Phase 2 Dose-Escalation Multicenter Study.

Mov Disord Clin Pract 2018 May-Jun;5(3):273-282. Epub 2018 Apr 26.

Rush University Medical Center Chicago IL.

Background: Injectable daxibotulinumtoxinA (an investigational botulinum toxin, RT002) may offer a more prolonged duration of response-and therefore less frequent dosing-than onabotulinumtoxinA.

Objectives: To perform a phase 2, open-label, dose-escalation study to assess the efficacy and safety of daxibotulinumtoxinA in cervical dystonia.

Methods: Subjects with moderate-to-severe isolated cervical dystonia were enrolled in sequential cohorts to receive a single open-label, intramuscular dose of injectable daxibotulinumtoxinA of up to 200 U ( 12), 200-300 U ( 12), or 300-450 U ( 13; https://clinicaltrials. Read More
