Parkinson disease: Not just a movement disorder
Nonmotor symptoms are common in Parkinson disease and can significantly worsen the health and quality of life of the patient and family members. These symptoms can be broadly categorized as sensory,Expand
Deep brain stimulation hardware complications: The role of electrode impedance and current measurements
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an effective therapy for advanced Parkinson's disease patients. Successful DBS outcomes depend on appropriate patient selection, surgical placement of the lead, intactExpand
Model-Based Deep Brain Stimulation Programming for Parkinson's Disease: The GUIDE Pilot Study
Background: Achieving optimal results following deep brain stimulation (DBS) typically involves several months of programming sessions. The Graphical User Interface for DBS Evaluation (GUIDE) studyExpand
Interprofessional education increases knowledge, promotes team building, and changes practice in the care of Parkinson's disease.
OBJECTIVE Examine outcomes for the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) Allied Team Training for Parkinson (ATTP), an interprofessional education (IPE) program in Parkinson's disease (PD) andExpand
Retrospective review of factors leading to dissatisfaction with subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation during long-term management
Background: Subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation is effective in reducing motor symptoms in appropriately selected patients with Parkinson's disease. We identified factors that contribute toExpand

Parkinson disease is a complex neurodegenerative disease with both motor and nonmotor symptoms. Levodopa remains the mainstay of therapy but is associated with motor complications as the diseaseExpand
Psychosis from subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulator lesion effect
Background: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) in particular is highly effective in relieving symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, it can also have markedExpand
Deep brain stimulation: A review of the procedure and the complications
&NA; This procedure is no longer experimental, and more conditions are being considered for DBS treatment. Pas should be prepared to care for patients with these implanted devices.
Long-Term Task- and Dopamine-Dependent Dynamics of Subthalamic Local Field Potentials in Parkinson’s Disease
Subthalamic nucleus (STN) local field potentials (LFP) are neural signals that have been shown to reveal motor and language behavior, as well as pathological parkinsonian states. We use aExpand
Deep brain stimulation and the ethics of protection and caring for the patient with Parkinson's dementia
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an effective neurosurgical treatment for patients with advanced Parkinson's disease (PD) suffering from motor complications that are refractory to further medicationExpand
