2981. Lack of sleep disturbance from menopausal hot flashes. (Abstract)

attention performance tests, sleep and fatigue questionnaires.Nineteen women were not selected for the following reasons: seven failed the drug screen, two had sleep apnea and periodic limb movements, one had periodic limb movements alone, two had body mass index (BMI) >30, one had hypertension, and six asymptomatic women had hot flashes in the laboratory. There were no significant group differences on any sleep stage measure. For example, for cycling vs. symptomatic vs. asymptomatic women: total sleep

Misclassification of false-positive subjects occurred when the patient presented significant sleep discontinuity and sleep fragmentation (sleep fragmentation index>or=50 events.h(-1)) related to insomnia or periodic limb movements. A power spectral density of the interbeat interval increment of very low frequencies>4% allowed correct classification of obstructive sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome when the clinical history suggested sleep-related breathing disorders

Sleep disorders in end-stage renal disease: 'Markers of inadequate dialysis'? Excessive daytime sleepiness and sleep disorders, including sleep apnea syndrome, restless legs syndrome, and periodic limb movement disorder, occur with increased frequency in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The detection and management of sleep disorders in ESRD patients is often challenging but may have significant clinical benefits. Some of the poor quality of life in ESRD may be attributed

2985. Comparison of unreamed nailing and external fixation of tibial diastases--mechanical conditions during healing and biological outcome. (Abstract)

with either a locked unreamed tibial nail or a monolateral fixator in a sheep model. Interfragmentary movements and ground reaction parameters were monitored in vivo throughout the healing period. After sacrifice, the tibiae were examined mechanically and histologically. Bending angles and axial torsion at the fracture site were larger in the nail group within the first five weeks post-operatively. Unlike the fixator group, the operated limb in the nail group did not return to full weight bearing during (...) the treatment period. Mechanical and histomorphometrical observations showed significantly inferior bone healing in the nail group compared to the fixator group. In this study, unreamed nailing of a tibial diastasis did not provide rotational stability of the osteosynthesis and resulted in a significant delay in bone healing.

by recurrent episodes of excessive daytime sleepiness or prolonged nighttime sleep. Hypersomnia can result from several primary sleep disorders, including narcolepsy, sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome, idiopathic hypersomnia, and periodic limb movement disorder. The effects of some of these sleep disorders and other chronic illnesses on daytime sleepiness are measured using the Epworth Sleepiness Scale. Narcolepsy was found to cause some of the highest measures of excessive sleepiness. This supplement

and outcomes were similar in both types of wounds. There was 1 death in the study group, and 1 patient required skin grafting. All other survivors had healing by secondary intention without disability. The period for complete epithelization varied between 3 and 8 weeks. Patients were discharged home when 70% of the wound had healed. There was extensive scarring in 3 children with NF involving the back. The other children had minimal or no scarring. None of the patients had any restriction in the movement (...) of limbs or joints. These findings were compared with 16 retrospective patients of NF treated before January 2000 by the conventional approach of aggressive early debridement, the results of the conservative approach were superior with shorter hospital stay, lower number of blood transfusions, earlier appearance of granulation tissue, and shorter duration of complete healing.We conclude that the conservative management of NF offers advantages in morbidity without compromising the outcome.

), was established for in vivo imaging of arteriogenesis in mice and compared with LDPI.Using the accepted model of ligation of the left femoral artery of 45 C57BL6 mice, we determined arteriogenesis both by LDPI and ICGA, which were applied before and periodically after ligation of the left femoral artery (each group n = 7). Collateral artery growth within the hind limb was additionally verified by histologic workup.Determination of flow by ICGA, as represented by maximal pixel intensity (ratio of left/right (...) increase in the number of collaterals. The intraindividual ratio increased from 1.0 +/- 0.05 before ligation to 1.35 +/- 0.10 at 2 weeks and 1.41 +/- 0.08 at 3 weeks after ligation (P < .05).Our data demonstrate that ICGA represents a potent tool for the quantification of collateral flow in small animal models. The current standard of LDPI seems to rather represent blood movements within the superficial skin but not of the entire hind limb.

integration. We compared 12 patients with limb FD to 10 patients with primary adult-onset typically mobile dystonia and 11 age-matched healthy volunteers. Measurements at the first digital interosseus representation area on both hemispheres included: short intracortical inhibition (SICI), contralateral silent period (cSP), and short and long afferent inhibition (SAI and LAI). Repeated measure ANOVA and post-hoc t-tests were used for statistical analysis. SICI was significantly reduced in both hemispheres (...) of patients with "typical" and FD, compared to healthy subjects. For both hemispheres, cSP duration was shorter in both fixed and "typical" dystonia patients. SAI and LAI did not significantly differ between the three groups. The abnormal cortical excitability observed in FD might represent an underlying trait predisposing to different clinical forms of dystonia.2007 Movement Disorder Society

Actigraphy in the critically ill: correlation with activity, agitation, and sedation. To determine the feasibility of continuous measurement of limb movement via wrist and ankle actigraphy (an activity measure) in critically ill patients and to compare actigraphy measurements with observed activity, subjective scores on sedation-agitation scales, and heart rate and blood pressure of patients.In a prospective, descriptive, correlational study, all activity of 20 adult patients in medical (...) stimulation and activity events of patients (r = 0.45). Correlations with systolic, diastolic, and mean arterial pressures were weaker. Wrist and ankle actigraphy data were significantly correlated (r = 0.69; P < .001); however, their mean values (wrist, 418; ankle, 147) were significantly different (t = 5.77; P < .001).Actigraphy provides a continuous recording of patients' limb movement. Actigraphy measurements correlate well with patients' observed activity and with subjective scores on agitation

2995. Childhood-onset restless legs syndrome: Clinical and genetic features of 22 families. (Abstract)

. Of the 23 RLS patients, only seven (30.4%) were admitted for a suspected diagnosis of RLS. Five patients had a retrospectively established onset at an age as early as 1 year. The most frequent complaint in patients were sleep problems (21 of 23; 91%) resulting in fatigue in 14 children (60.9%). Twelve of the 19 tested cases (63.2%) exhibited an index of periodic limb movements in sleep greater than 5. Dopaminergic therapy was successful in 12 of 14 treated patients (85.7%). Family history for RLS (...) was positive in 20 of 23 children (87.0%) and compatible with an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern. Linkage analysis excluded all five loci in two families. A trend for an association at two of the three reported susceptibility regions was observed. RLS symptoms can occur in early childhood. The positive family history suggests a genetic cause in most families with at least one additional RLS gene locus.(c) 2008 Movement Disorder Society

Use of sleep-promoting medications in nursing home residents : risks versus benefits. This paper reviews the use of sleep-promoting medications in nursing home residents with reference to risks versus benefits. Up to two-thirds of elderly people living in institutions experience sleep disturbance. The aetiology of sleep disturbance includes poor sleep hygiene, medical and psychiatric disorders, sleep apnoea, periodic limb movements and restless leg syndrome. One key factor in the development (...) to avoid long-acting benzodiazepines and to use hypnotics for as brief a period as possible, in most cases not exceeding 2-3 weeks of treatment. Patients receiving benzodiazepines are at increased risk of daytime sedation, falls, and cognitive and psychomotor impairment. Zaleplon, zolpidem, zopiclone and eszopiclone may have some advantages over the benzodiazepines, particularly with respect to the development of tolerance and dependence.

severe adverse effects. Thus, parkinsonian patients with long-term levodopa syndrome or motor disorders during sleep could benefit from use of transdermal lisuride and apomorphine. Moreover, transdermal dopaminergic drugs, particularly rotigotine, seem the ideal treatment for patients experiencing restless legs syndrome or periodic limb movement disorder during sleep, disorders that are quite common in elderly people or in association with neurodegenerative diseases. Unlike dopaminergic drugs (...) administration of drugs during the day to maintain constant plasma medication levels, which in turn increases the likelihood of poor adherence. Consequently, several attempts have been made to develop pharmacological preparations that can achieve a constant rate of drug delivery. For example, transdermal lisuride and apomorphine have been shown to reduce motor fluctuations and duration of 'off' periods in advanced Parkinson's disease, while rotigotine allows significant down-titration of levodopa without
