Interest of dual-task-related gait changes in idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus

Published in European Journal of Neurology. 2011, vol. 18, no. 8, p. 1081-4
Abstract Gait disorders in patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) share similar characteristics found in pathologies presenting with higher-level gait disorders that have been specifically associated with gait changes during walking while simultaneously performing an attention-demanding task (i.e. dual tasking). The current study assessed the effect of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) tapping on quantitative gait modification during single and dual tasking in patients with a suspicion of iNPH.
