dyssynergia

 [dis″sin-er´jah]
muscular incoordination.
dyssynergia cerebella´ris myoclo´nica dyssynergia cerebellaris progressiva associated with myoclonus epilepsy.
dyssynergia cerebella´ris progressi´va a condition marked by generalized intention tremors associated with disturbance of muscle tone and of muscular coordination; due to disorder of cerebellar function.
detrusor-sphincter dyssynergia contraction of the urethral sphincter muscle at the same time the detrusor muscle of the bladder is contracting, resulting in obstruction of normal urinary outflow; it may accompany detrusor hyperreflexia or instability.

dys·syn·er·gi·a

(dis'in-ĕr'jē-ă),
An aspect of ataxia, in which an act is not performed smoothly or accurately because of lack of harmonious association of its various components; usually used to describe abnormalities of movement caused by cerebellar disorders.
[dys- + G. syn, with, + ergon, work]

dyssynergia

/dys·syn·er·gia/ (dis″sin-er´je-ah) muscular incoordination.

dyssynergia cerebella´ris progressi´va  a condition marked by generalized intention tremors associated with disturbance of muscle tone and of muscular coordination; due to disorder of cerebellar function.
detrusor-sphincter dyssynergia  contraction of the urethral sphincter muscle at the same time the detrusor muscle of the bladder is contracting, resulting in obstruction of normal urinary outflow; it may accompany detrusor hyperreflexia or instability.

dyssynergia

[dis′inur′jē·ə]
Etymology: Gk, dys + syn, together, ergein, work
any disturbance in muscular coordination, as in cases of ataxia.

dys·syn·er·gi·a

, dyssynergy (dis'sin-ĕr'jē-ă, -synĕr-jē)
An aspect of ataxia, in which an act is not performed smoothly or accurately because of lack of harmonious association of its various components; usually used to describe abnormalities of movement caused by cerebellar disorders.
[dys- + G. syn, with, + ergon, work]

dyssynergia

Puppet-like movement resulting from the inability to coordinate simultaneous movement at the various joints in a limb. Movement is broken up into its separate components. This is a sign of disorder of the CEREBELLUM.

dyssynergia

muscular incoordination.

detrusor-sphincter dyssynergia
see detrusor-urethral dyssynergia (below).
detrusor-urethral dyssynergia
a disorder of micturition caused by a lack of coordination between contraction of the detrusor muscle and relaxation of the urethra.

Patient discussion about dyssynergia

Q. Can I inherit ataxia to my children? I have Ataxia. Does this mean that all my kids will have it too?

A. The hereditary ataxias are genetic, which means they are caused by a defect in a certain gene that is present from the start of a person's life. There are both dominant and recessive ataxias. If it's a dominant ataxia then each child of a parent with an autosomal dominant ataxia gene has a 50/50 chance of whether they will inherit the ataxia gene or not. If it's recessive then it takes a "double dose" of the ataxia gene to result in disease symptoms. Both parents must be carriers of the disease gene in order for it to pass on. Each child of parents who are both carriers of a recessive disease has a 25% chance of inheriting two ataxia genes so will develop the disease, a 50% chance of inheriting just one of the ataxia genes and, therefore, be a carrier and a 25% chance of inheriting no ataxia gene and be completely free of ataxia.
Therefore, it depends which ataxia gene you have, if it's dominant or recessive and whether your spouse is a carrier too.
