    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus; epidemiology; prevalence; gait disorders; neuroimaging cognitive impairment; urinary incontinence; quality of life; depression;

    Abstract : Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is a progressive neurological condition characterized by a deterioration of gait, cognition, and continence. The diagnosis is based on a combination of enlarged ventricles seen in neuroimaging, with typical clinical findings. iNPH often affects elderly individuals (i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Epidemiology of Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus - Prevalence, Risk Factors, Diagnosis and Prognosis

    Author : Daniel Jaraj; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus; Epidemiology; Dementia; Prevalence; Risk factors; Evans index; Long-term outcome; Population study;

    Abstract : The number of older persons and individuals with cognitive impairment is expected to increase dramatically in most parts of the world. It is therefore important to learn more about disorders that affect cognition. READ MORE

    Abstract : The aims of this study were to document the levels of cobalamin, folate, methylmalonic acid (MMA) and total homocysteine (tHcy) in serum and their relations to symptoms, clinical findings, and other factors in order to improve the possibilities of detecting early deficiency of vitamin B12 or folate, and to study the effects of cobalamin and folic acid treatment over a three-year period. The study population consisted of a 20% random sample of persons 70 years or older living in Älvkarleby in mid-Sweden. READ MORE

  4. 4. The biology of cognitive decline and reduced survival in Parkinson disease : prognostic factors in a population-based cohort

    Abstract : Parkinson disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects about 1% of the population over 60 years. The cardinal symptoms are motor disabilities but cognitive decline is also common. About 50% of all persons with PD develop dementia within 10 years after disease onset. READ MORE
