[Multiorgan manifestations in myotonic dystrophy type 1].
Last Updated: Oct 17, 2019

Myotonic dystrophy is one of the most common, autosomal dominantly inherited adult-onset muscle disorders. Two types of the disease are known: type 1 is characterized by distal weakness and myotonia, but type 2 is associated with proximal weakness and milder clinical course. It is ...

MRI of trunk muscles and motor and respiratory function in patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1.
Last Updated: Aug 02, 2019

Myotonic Dystrophy 1 (DM1) causes progressive myopathy of extremity muscles. DM1 may also affect muscles of the trunk. The aim of this study was to investigate fat infiltration and muscle size in trunk muscles in DM1 patients, and in an age and gender matched control group. Further, ...

Clinical implication of maximal voluntary ventilation in myotonic muscular dystrophy.
Last Updated: Jun 10, 2019

Patients with myotonic muscular dystrophy type 1 (DM1) tend to exhibit earlier respiratory insufficiency than patients with other neuromuscular diseases at similar or higher forced vital capacity (FVC). This study aimed to analyze several pulmonary function parameters to determine ...
