To test the specific effect of these procedures on gait, we used quantitative gait analysis in addition to relevant subscores of the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale in a group of 10 patients with advanced Parkinson's disease treated by GPi stimulation and eight patients treated by STN stimulation… CONTINUE READING
