The aim of our study was to observe the effects on gait parameters induced by STN stimulation and levodopa medication in patients with advanced Parkinson’s disease in order to determine different or additive effects. Therefore we examined 12 patients with advanced Parkinson disease after bilateral implantation of DBS into the STN. We assessed the motor score of the UPDRS and quantitative gait analysis under 4 treatment conditions: with and without stimulation as well as with and without… CONTINUE READING
