Impaired gait initiation is one of the typical sign of advanced Parkinson's disease (PD). This is the first study to examine quantitatively the effect of deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus on the performance of gait initiation for patients with advanced PD. A total of 11 patients after surgery of bilateral deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) were tested in both the deep brain stimulation (DBS) ON and OFF conditions and/or in both the medication ON (i.e., with… CONTINUE READING
