His YGTSS score was the primary indicator assessed before and after FMT treatment, and we also recorded clinical evaluations and life behaviour observations of the patient (from his primary caregiver).
The severity scores for motor tics, phonic tics, overall damage, and global tics were assessed based on the Yale Global Tic Severity Scale (YGTSS).
The postoperative improvement rate of symptoms was calculated as follows: Improvement rate = (preoperative YGTSS score − postoperative YGTSS score)/preoperative YGTSS score x 100%.
At the 6-month follow-up assessment, all patients had significantly improved symptoms and 56% of patients had a significant decrease in YGTSS scores compared with the baseline ( P < 0.01).
At 24 months, the YGTSS total scores improved by 46%, 58%, and 17% and the MRTRS total scores improved by 79%, 81%, and 44% in the three responders.
The Yale Global Tic Severity scale (YGTSS) is an 11-item interview related with the severity of motor and vocal tics filled in by clinicians (20).
The correlation between the scores of the Quality of Life Reported by the Child and Parents and YGTSS was analysed.
Using the Mann-Whitney statistical test, we found that three measures (YGTSS, FAB, and Verbal Fluency) revealed better scores among TS patients over thirty years old (see Table 4).
Scores from the YGTSS, PUTS, and GTS-QOL scales (Table 3) provide only a partial clinical picture.
