Orthostatic hypotension from sympathetic denervation in Parkinson's disease

Neurology

Apr 24, 2002

David S GoldsteinS-T Li

Abstract

Patients with PD often have signs or symptoms of autonomic failure, including orthostatic hypotension. Cardiac sympathetic denervation occurs frequently in PD, but this has been thought to occur independently of autonomic failure. Forty-one patients with PD (18 with and 23 without ortho...read more

Shy-Drager Syndrome

Shy-Drager Syndrome is a progressive disorder of the central and sympathetic nervous systems characterized by symptoms of autonomic nervous system failure, impaired speech, difficulties breathing and swallowing, and anhidrosis. Here is the latest research.

Multiple System Atrophy

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder which affects the body’s autonomic functions, including breathing and muscle control. Discover the latest research on MSA here.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Neuroimaging

Neuroimaging is a useful tool for studying brain function as well as for diagnosis of diseases and injuries to the brain. Follow this feed to stay up to date.

Positron Emission Tomography: Brain

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a type of imaging that allows visualization of the brain functioning. A radioactive tracer is injected into the bloodstream allowing the activity of the organ to be visualized. PET imaging for the brain is useful to see if there is disease or injury in the brain. Here is the latest research on PET and the brain.

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of muscle control, including trembling of the limbs and impaired balance. Here is the latest research.
