Pisa syndrome is a disabling, medication-resistant, postural abnormality that may affect 7-10% of patients with Parkinson's disease. In this study, we sought to assess the efficacy of botulinum toxin injections in Parkinson's disease-associated Pisa syndrome using a Magnetic Resonance Imaging-, Ultrasonography-, and Electromyography-guided combined approach.

Abstract

Pisa syndrome is a disabling, medication-resistant, postural abnormality that may affect 7-10% of patients with Parkinson's disease. In this study, we sought to assess the efficacy of botulinum toxin injections in Parkinson's disease-associated Pisa syndrome using a Magnetic Resonance Imaging-, Ultrasonography-, and Electromyography-guided combined approach.
