  1. 24-Hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring in SWEDDs Patients With Parkinsonism.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):390 (2016) PMID 26853109

    Patients diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (PD) on clinics who subsequently turn out to have normal dopamine transporter images have been referred to as scans without evidence of dopaminergic deficits (SWEDDs) patients. Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction has frequently been reported in PD. In...
  2. Peri-rolandic Seizures Manifesting as Reflex-induced Paroxysmal Involuntary Movements.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):448 (2016) PMID 26777703

  3. Epithelioid Schwannoma of a Spinal Nerve Root.

  4. Medical Tourism for CCSVI Procedures in People with Multiple Sclerosis: An Observational Study.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):360 (2016) PMID 26891024

    Many Canadians with multiple sclerosis (MS) have recently travelled internationally to have procedures for a putative condition called chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI). Here, we describe where and when they went and describe the baseline characteristics of persons with MS who p...
  5. The Impact of Early Medical School Surgical Exposure on Interest in Neurosurgery.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):410 (2016) PMID 26711669

    Medical student interest in neurosurgery is decreasing and resident attrition is trending upwards in favor of more lifestyle-friendly specialties that receive greater exposure during medical school. The University of Toronto began offering an annual two week comprehensive, focused surgical exper...
  6. Quality of Life, Cognition and Mood in Adults with Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):368 (2016) PMID 26795374

    Pediatric onset multiple sclerosis (MS) negatively affects cognitive function, mood and health related quality of life (HRQOL). We aimed to explore the cognitive, psychological and HRQOL impacts of pediatric MS on young adults and to explore the relationships between disability, disease duration...
  7. Myeloid Sarcoma "en plaque" Disguised as Acute Subdural Hematoma.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):427 (2016) PMID 26804447

  8. Headache, Atypical Facial Pain, and a Syrinx.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):452 (2016) PMID 26824637

  9. Sensory Ganglionopathy and the Blink Reflex: Electrophysiological Features.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):385 (2016) PMID 26795713

    Sensory ganglionopathy (SG) is characterised by asymmetrical sensory fibre degeneration, with the primary pathology occurring at the level of the dorsal root ganglion. It is seen in the context of autoimmune, paraneoplastic, and degenerative disorders. There is limited literature examining the e...
  10. A Synthesis of Peer-Reviewed Literature on Team-Coordinated and Delivered Early Supported Discharge After Stroke.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):353 (2016) PMID 26742718

    This review aimed to summarize data from peer-reviewed studies of team-coordinated and delivered early supported discharge (ESD) for postacute, poststroke rehabilitation. A systematic review was performed in Medline, Embase, and CINAHL for appropriate studies. Information on program details and ...
  11. Genetic Myopathies Initially Diagnosed and Treated as Inflammatory Myopathy.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):381 (2016) PMID 26911292

    Differentiating genetic myopathies from inflammatory myopathies can be challenging because of multiple overlapping clinical features. Examples are presented to highlight important clinical features that assist in the differentiation between the two. Clinical features including age at onset, hist...
  12. The Under-Utilization of the Head Impulse Test in the Emergency Department.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):398 (2016) PMID 26787132

    The head impulse test (HIT) is an evidenced based clinical tool to differentiate between peripheral and central causes of vertigo. Our objective was to determine the rate of utilization of the HIT in the emergency room (ER). A retrospective chart review of patients presenting to the ER over one ...

  17. Serial Quantitative Computed Tomography Perfusion in Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):375 (2016) PMID 26757612

    Computed tomography perfusion (CTP) has been performed to predict which patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage are at risk of developing delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI). Patients with severe arterial narrowing may have significant reduction in perfusion. However, many patients have les...
  18. Canadian Paediatric Neurology Workforce Survey and Consensus Statement.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(3):402 (2016) PMID 26787257

    Little knowledge exists on the availability of academic and community paediatric neurology positions. This knowledge is crucial for making workforce decisions. Our study aimed to: 1) obtain information regarding the availability of positions for paediatric neurologists in academic centres; 2) su...
