The gait disorder in downbeat nystagmus syndrome.
PLoS ONE
PUBLISHED: 08-20-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Downbeat nystagmus (DBN) is a common form of acquired fixation nystagmus with key symptoms of oscillopsia and gait disturbance. Gait disturbance could be a result of impaired visual feedback due to the involuntary ocular oscillations. Alternatively, a malfunction of cerebellar locomotor control might be involved, since DBN is considered a vestibulocerebellar disorder.

Occupational injuries among children and adolescents in Cusco Province: a cross-sectional study.
BMC Public Health
PUBLISHED: 07-18-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Although the number of child laborers in Latin America is generally high, data on occupational hazards and injuries is insufficient. The objective of this study was therefore to determine the lifetime prevalence of and risk factors for occupational injuries among working students (10-17 years old) in Cusco Province.

Increased gait variability is associated with the history of falls in patients with cerebellar ataxia.

Hide Abstract
Falls are common in patients with cerebellar ataxia (CA). Identification of gait variables associated with a higher risk of falls allows us to detect fallers and initiate protective procedures early. Gait variability, which is increased in CA patients, is a good predictor of falls in elderly subjects and patients with neurodegenerative diseases. The relationship between gait variability and fall risk in patients with different cerebellar disorders was systematically investigated. A total of 48 patients with different cerebellar ataxia entities [adult-onset cerebellar atrophy (SAOA) (n = 23), unknown entity (n = 7), vascular (n = 5), post-cerebellitis (n = 6), congenital (n = 2), Louis-Bar syndrome (n = 2), ethyltoxic (n = 2) posttraumatic (n = 1)] were examined using a GAITRite® sensor mat. Spatial and temporal variability parameters were used for ANOVA testing and logistic regression models with categorized fall events as dependent variables. Gait variability in the fore-aft direction showed significant differences between the fall groups (p < 0.05-0.01). Model effects were highest for walking with slow speed (correct prediction 0.50-0.72). The speed-dependent integral of gait variability markers showed a higher discriminatory power (correct prediction 0.74-0.94). Gait variability is linked to the fall risk of patients with CA, slow walking and temporal gait variability being most relevant. The use of speed-dependent integrals of gait variability improves the accuracy of fall prediction. To predict fall risks in cerebellar ataxia, gait variability measurements made during slow walking should be included in a gait analysis procedure. The effects of speed-adjusted physiotherapeutic interventions have to be further investigated.

Sensory loss and walking speed related factors for gait alterations in patients with peripheral neuropathy.
Gait Posture
PUBLISHED: 09-05-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Walking instability and a higher risk of falls are common in patients with peripheral neuropathy. However, it remains uncertain as to whether alterations in neuropathic gait are directly related to deficient sensory locomotion control or due to a slowing of walking speed. By means of a multi-speed gait assessment we determined factors related to sensory loss and walking speed that cause changes in the gait pattern of neuropathic patients.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
