). Multidisciplinary clinic. Does multidisciplinary management improve outcomes? In specialized multidisciplinary clinics, patients with ALS receive comprehensive care from a physician, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist, dietitian, social worker, respiratory therapist, and nurse case manager. Studies suggest varying degrees of adherence to the practice parameters (Class III). Specialized clinics coordinate care and interface with a primary care physician and community-based services (...) , emotional blunting, and loss of insight. These criteria are required for the diagnosis of FTD, which is supported by neuropsychological abnormalities, language dysfunction, and poor self care. ALSci reflects frontotemporal dysfunction with deficits in attention, cognitive flexibility, and word generation, with relative sparing of visuospatial function and memory. ALSbi refers to changes in social interactions unrelated to a psychiatric condition. The domain of cognitive and behavioral impairment in ALS

. Conclusion The frequency distribution of durations of transiently symptomatic cerebral ischemic events shows no special relationship to the 24-hour time point ( Class III, Level of Evidence A ). Disease definitions in clinical medicine, including those for ischemic injuries, are most useful when tissue based. Evidence Seeking the pathological basis of disease and directing treatment at underlying biological processes are central tenets of modern medicine. Tissue-based definitions are the rule (...) . The California score and the ABCD score both predict short-term risk of stroke well in independent populations of patients presenting acutely after a TIA. The newer ABCD score was derived to provide a more robust prediction standard and incorporates elements from both prior scores.

293. Utility of surgical decompression for treatment of diabetic neuropathy

of diabetes, behind macrovascular disease and nephropathy. Several evidence-based reviews for treatment modalities for DPN are available. Surgical decompression of multiple peripheral nerves is being utilized as an alternative approach to treatment of symptomatic diabetic neuropathy. This is based on the hypothesis that diabetic nerves are more vulnerable to compressive injury at potential sites for entrapment. This forms the “double crush” or “double pathology” hypothesis, a term originally coined (...) for increased susceptibility of nerves with proximal and distal compressive lesions. The metabolic stress of diabetes is the first crush, and compression of the nerve at the potential site of entrapment will cause the second crush. According to this hypothesis, most patients remain asymptomatic despite having diabetic nerve disease. Only when the second pathology occurs (compression of the nerves at entrapment sites) will the patients become symptomatic. Thus it has been hypothesized that symptoms

prevalence of up to 329/100,000. Although PD is common, it can be difficult to diagnose clinically, particularly in early stages, and approximately 5 to 10% of patients with PD are misdiagnosed. Conversely, up to 20% of patients diagnosed with PD reveal alternative diagnoses at autopsy, such as multiple system atrophy (MSA), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), AD-type pathology, and cerebrovascular disease. Based on these studies, diagnostic criteria have been developed, with the most commonly used (...) identified four articles that addressed the diagnostic accuracy of clinical features that were helpful in differentiating PD from other forms of parkinsonism (table E-1). A Class II case control study of 77 patients with pathologic diagnoses of different parkinsonian conditions including corticobasal degeneration (CBD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), MSA, PD, and PSP revealed that falling within 1 year of diagnosis was a strong predictor of other forms of parkinsonism.
