BACKGROUND Few multiple case studies of the effects of deep brain stimulation for camptocormia associated with Parkinson's disease have been reported. Although deep brain stimulation was in some cases not effective against camptocormia, it is unclear in which types of patients it was effective in treating camptocormia. OBJECTIVE We treated 4 Parkinson's disease patients with camptocormia and evaluated their paraspinal muscle status by computed tomography to specify the characteristics of… CONTINUE READING
