Impact of Pallidotomy on Physiological Articulation Function and Speech Intelligibility in Parkinson Disease.

Impact of Pallidotomy on Physiological Articulation Function and Speech Intelligibility in Parkinson Disease.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of posteroventral pallidotomy on perceptual and physiological measures of articulatory function and speech intelligibility in Parkinson disease (PD). The study examined 11 participants with PD who under-went posteroventral pallidotomy. Physiological measures of lip and tongue function and perceptual measures of speech intelligibility were obtained prepallidotomy […]

Association of Changes in Oxidative and Proinflammatory States with Changes in Vascular Function After a Lifestyle Modification Trial Among Obese Children (Lipids, Lipoproteins, And Cardiovascular Risk Factors)

Association of Changes in Oxidative and Proinflammatory States with Changes in Vascular Function After a Lifestyle Modification Trial Among Obese Children (Lipids, Lipoproteins, And Cardiovascular Risk Factors)

The prevalence of childhood obesity and its consequences are increasing rapidly in low- and middle-income countries (1). It is well documented that childhood obesity tracks into adulthood. Of special concern are the cardiometabolic consequences of obesity, especially hypertension, dyslipidemia, and impaired glucose metabolism, that are already present in young children of different ethnicities (2, 3).
