Parkinsonism management issues in a patient with exhausted subthalamic deep brain stimulation battery, stricken by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2

Seyed Amir Hassan Habibi; Luigi Romito; Oldooz Aloosh; Mohammad Rohani; Fatemeh Moghadas; Mansour Parvaresh; Gholamali Shahidi; Mehdi Moghaddasi; Ehsan Ziayi; Maziar Emamikhah

Volume 19, Issue 4 , October 2020, , Pages 211-214


  Background: Nowadays, many neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s disease (PD), are treated with deep brain stimulation (DBS). Life-threatening consequences can occur from DBS hardware failure or sudden implantable pulse generator (IPG) battery depletion. This issue may potentially worsen ...  Read More

Transcranial sonography in carriers of Gaucher disease

Fatemeh Omrani; Shahla Ansari-Damavandi; Babak Zamani; Zahra Omrani; Nahid Mohammadzade; Sadra Rohani; Mohammad Rohani

Volume 17, Issue 3 , July 2018, , Pages 145-148

  Background: Glucocerebrosidase (GBA) mutation is the most common genetic risk factor in Parkinson’s disease (PD). Transcranial sonography (TCS) shows increased substantia nigra (SN) echogenicity in both idiopathic and genetic forms of PD. The goal of this study was to compare maximal area of SN hyperechogenicity ...  Read More

Outcome of subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation on long-term motor function of patients with advanced Parkinson disease

Gholam Ali Shahidi; Mohammad Roohani; Mansour Parvaresh; Bahram Haghi-Ashtiani; Maryam Saeeedi; Romina Rashedi; Zeynab Noori-Motlagh

Volume 16, Issue 3 , July 2017, , Pages 107-111

  Background: The objective of our study was to assess Unified Parkinson Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) score in Parkinson disease (PD) patients who underwent subthalamic nucleus (STN) deep brain stimulation (DBS) 6 years after their surgery and to compare their UPDRS score 6 years after DBS with their score ...  Read More

Diagnostic value of median nerve ‎ultrasonography for screening of ‎carpal tunnel syndrome in‏ ‏hypothyroid patients: A ‎cross-sectional study

Masoud Mehrpour; Zahra Mirzaasgari; Mohammad Rohani; Mahdi Safdarian

Volume 15, Issue 2 , April 2016, , Pages 70-74

  Background: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common peripheral entrapment neuropathy in patients with hypothyroid. The diagnosis of CTS is usually clinical and confirmed by electrodiagnostic (EDX) procedures. This study aimed to describe the diagnostic accuracy of high-resolution ultrasonography (US) ...  Read More

Spatial distance between anatomically- and physiologically-identified targets in ‎subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation in Parkinson’s disease

Mansour Parvaresh-Rizi; Alireza Tabibkhoei; Gholamali Shahidi; Janardan Vaidyanathan; Amirreza Tabibkhoei; Mohammad Rohani

Volume 15, Issue 1 , January 2016, , Pages 34-45

  Background: Subthalamic nucleus (STN) stimulation is the  reatment of choice for carefully chosen patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) and refractory motor fluctuations. We evaluated the value of intraoperative electrophysiology during STN deep brain stimulation (DBS) procedures in refining ...  Read More

A novel effect of Noscapine on patients with massive ischemic stroke: A pseudo-randomized clinical trial.

Massoud Mahmoudian; Mohammad Rezvani; Mohammad Rohani; Foozya Benaissa; Mehdi Jalili; Shadi Ghourchian

Volume 14, Issue 1 , March 2015, , Pages 12-16

  Background: Massive ischemic stroke causes significant mortality and morbidity in stroke patients. The main treatments for massive ischemic stroke are recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA), craniotomy, and endovascular interventions. Due to destructive  effects  of   bradykinin  on  the  ...  Read More
