We fah not consider scales and questionnaires specifically designed for secondary dystonias or requiring measurement devices. It can be used to evaluate the impact of the disease on areas not covered by generic measures, such as SF, which are of considerable concern to patients with craniocervical dystonia.

Responsiveness has been demonstrated in treatment studies 8491 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 — Jens Volkmann Research project conception and execution, organization, manuscript review.

Scales for oromandibular, arm, and task-specific dystonias require further assessment and there are no rating scales for some body areas, particularly the trunk and lower limbs. Induction of bradykinesia with pallidal deep brain stimulation in patients with cranial-cervical dystonia.

Responsiveness to change has been demonstrated 25 Optimising outcome assessment of voice interventions, I: The VHI is a patient-rated scale addressing disability scaoe to verbal communication. However, growing evidence indicates the importance of non-motor component to dystonia, including abnormalities in sensory and perceptual functions, as well as neuropsychiatric, cognitive and sleep domains 4.

Existing scales for oromandibular, arm and task-specific dystonia should be refined and fully assessed. Thirty six potential scales were identified.
