BACKGROUND Cardiac 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy (MIBG) previously demonstrated an uptake reduction in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). However, epidemiologic research showed that electrocardiography (ECG) abnormalities occurred prior to motor signs in PD. Here we investigated whether the electrical conduction system of the heart was impaired in PD. METHODS Clinical features, ECG and MIBG parameters were analyzed in 191 patients with PD, 42 with multiple system atrophy (MSA… CONTINUE READING
