3,4) Echocardiography typically demonstrates multichamber enlargement associated with global hypokinesia and decreased left ventricular fractional shortening.
Functional abnormalities can be detected on the bright blood cine sequences, and include global or regional hypokinesia resulting in reduced ejection fraction (EF) as well as increased RV volumes.
Similar to our case, hyperkinetic movements such as tremor and dystonia, as well as disorders of gait and speech are most common, whereas hypokinesia such as psychogenic parkinsonism is rare.
Gait hypokinesia, characterised by slowness of movement, is one of the main movement disorders that affects Parkinson's patients and can have a major impact on quality of life.
Festination and marked hypokinesia along with freezing and postural instability lead to frequent falls.
Trans-thoracic echocardiography showed a sub-normal left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of 58% with no left ventricular dilation and discrete segmental hypokinesia of the lateral wall.
A person with premotor neglect, frequently termed directional hypokinesia, can move unaffected limbs ably in ipsilateral space but has difficulty directing the limbs into contralesional space.
He suffers from Parkinson's syndrome, a neurological disorder characterized by tremor, hypokinesia, rigidity and postural instability.
Neurologic examinations were performed daily, and neonatal neurologic conditions were classified as described by Prechtl (22), with each infant assigned to one of three diagnostic groups: normal, abnormal (when one or more of the following neurologic syndromes were present: hyper- or hypokinesia, hyper- or hypotonia, hemisyndrome, apathy syndrome, hyperexcitability syndrome), or suspect (if only isolated symptoms were present but no defined syndrome was evident).
Other common side effects include diarrhea, hyperkinesias, urine discoloration, hypokinesia, abdominal pain, dizziness, constipation, fatigue, pain and hallucinations.
Movement disorders common to HD and PD include hypokinesia, akinesia and dyskinesia.
