The provoking factor rates the relation of dystonia to action, from 0 no dystonia at rest or with action to 4 dystonia at rest. Long-term efficacy and safety of botulinum toxin type A Dysport in cervical dystonia. The movement subscale rates dystonia severity and provoking factors in nine body areas, including eyes, mouth, speech and swallowing, neck, trunk, and both arms and legs.

However, these scales are useful mainly in assessing the motor aspects of dystonia, and only two of them TWSTRS and FMDRS assess some of the specific motor phenomena of dystonia, such as action specificity, gestes antagonistes or temporal patterns.

Jankovic J, Hallett M, editors. However, considering that the VHI was validated on few patients with laryngeal dystonia compared to the total number of patients assessed, it still needs further validation for dystonia. Sixty Hertz pallidal deep brain stimulation for primary torsion dystonia. Scales should be developed for body regions where no scales are available, such as lower limbs and trunk. The CDQ is a brief and easy instrument.

Fahn-Marsden Dystonia Rating Scale (FMDRS)

Capturing the true burden of dystonia on patients: In addition, published articles known to the Task Force members were included in this review. It is a bufke patient-rated disability scale that measures impairment of specific activities of daily living caused by blepharospasm. The task force recommends five specific dystonia scales and suggests to further validate in dystonia two recommended generic voice-disorder scales.


Use by multiple groups outside the original developers VHI has been used to measure outcomes after interventions for a broad range of laryngeal disorders, including cancer and mass lesions, vocal fold polyps and cysts, and laryngeal dystonia 65 — Clinimetric properties In the development and validation dcale performed on a heterogeneous set of disorders 63the VHI proved to have good internal consistency and good test-retest reliability for subscales bjrke total scores.

Craniocervical dystonia questionnaire CDQ In the original validation study the reliability, inter-rater agreement, and concurrent validity of the FMDRS were demonstrated for the dyxtonia score without reporting the level of agreement for ratings of the different body regions Pallidal deep brain stimulation for DYT6 dystonia. The VHI has been used in several studies to assess efficacy of treatments for laryngeal dystonia.

Conclusion The task force recommends five specific dystonia scales and suggests to further validate in dystonia two recommended generic voice-disorder scales.

FMDRS – Fahn-Marsden Dystonia Rating Scale

Scale application in dystonia The CDIP has been specifically developed for patients with cervical dystonia. Introduction Dystonia is one dysotnia the most common movement disorders, with an overall prevalence of More variable results dystoonia reported in secondary dystonias and its efficacy in this heterogeneous group has not been fully elucidated. A long-term follow-up study.

Efficacy and safety of incobotulinum toxin A NTXeomin in the treatment of blepharospasm-a randomized trial. It is available only in English, although the scale has been used extensively in Europe and Israel.

Respective potencies of Botox and Dysport: Selective lateral laser masden myotomy for adductor spasmodic dysphonia. Limitations in the FMDRS include a weighting factor that halves the contribution of dystonia in eyes, mouth and neck to the total score. Scale presentation and clinimetric testing results. The following criteria were specifically distilled from the available evidence. The FMDRS was originally established for the clinical assessment of primary torsion dystonia in adults Eight summary scale scores are generated by summing items and then transformed to a 0— score.

The value of having two scales for the same purpose is questionable and a sensible recommendation would be to merge them or pick one for future use.

It was developed to determine the level of disability experienced by patients with different voice disorders Scales for oromandibular, arm, and bukre dystonias require further assessment and there are no rating scales for some body areas, particularly the trunk and lower limbs. Items are rated on a 5-point scale.

Reliability and validity of three self-reported scales. Weaknesses consist in an unclear definition of midline for assessing range of motion, lack of a separate scoring category assessing dystonic tremor, and the specification of duration for the effect of sensory tricks
