221. Seating orientations and upper extremity function in children with cerebral palsy. (Abstract)

seating position, the subject performed an upper extremity activity on cue. The tests were repeated in reverse sequence. Mean performance times were different at all seating orientations for both types of subjects. Performance time was lowest at the 0-degree orientation during the retest for the subjects with spasticity and highest at 15-degree anterior inclination during the retest for the subjects with athetosis. The results of this study show that orientation of the body in space affects upper

athetosis athetosis - General Practice Notebook This site is intended for healthcare professionals General Practice Notebook | Medical search athetosis Athetosis describes repetitive involuntary, slow, sinuous, writhing movements, which are especially severe in the hands. There are also elements of postural disturbance. Athetotic movements are around the axis of the limb, as distinct from choreiform movements, which are at right angles to the axis. As with chorea, the lips, jaw and tongue may

224. Transient athetosis induced by tiagabine. (Abstract)

Transient athetosis induced by tiagabine. Movement disorders have been reported with use of different antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). We report a 32-year-old woman, affected by a symptomatic focal drug-resistant epilepsy and a mild hemiparesis, with acute athetoid movements, transiently linked to increasing tiagabine (TGB) therapy. To our knowledge, no other cases of acute athetosis related to TGB have been reported to date. However, we cannot rule out the possibility that involuntary movements (...) were induced by an interaction between TGB and concomitant AEDs, in particular phenobarbital (PB), possibly by increasing GABAergic transmission. We hypothesize that the presence of a static encephalopathy may have influenced the kind of extrapyramidal side effect induced by TGB in our patient, leading to athetosis.

225. Athetosis II: the syndrome of mild athetoid cerebral palsy. (Abstract)

Athetosis II: the syndrome of mild athetoid cerebral palsy. We describe 8 patients who presented with continuous, irregular movements occurring independently in individual fingers and, in some cases, toes, in the setting of mild dystonia present since early childhood and not associated with major disability. The finger movements varied from low-amplitude quivering or wriggling to larger amplitude movements in the plane of abduction-adduction as well as flexion-extension; they were asymmetrical (...) but not unilateral. Quivering or working of the facial muscles was seen in 5 patients. Most patients reported worsening of the movements over the years, but there was no other evidence of a progressive neurological disease. We classify the movement disorder as athetosis as described by Hammond and Shaw and the syndrome as mild athetoid cerebral palsy.Copyright 2002 Movement Disorder Society
