Parkinson's disease is a movement disorder with a tendency to bend the trunk forward and transition from walking to quick step, while both the senses and the intellect remain intact.
Parkinson Disease.
A review of the current understanding of Parkinson disease, including the epidemiology, phenomenology, and treatment options of the disease, suggests that innovative surgical therapies for Parkinson disease may be used when motor symptoms persist despite optimal medical management.
Parkinson's disease: Therapeutic options
This paper examines, step by step, the different treatment options for Parkinson’s disease by following the criteria for therapy aimed at maximum benefits with minimal side effects in the short and long term.
Olfactory dysfunction in Parkinson's disease
Olfactory dysfunction in Parkinson's disease (PD) has been described for more than thirty years and known as one of the commonest non-motor symptoms in PD. Recently, it attracts widespread attention
Potential of the Rotigotine Transdermal Patch for Patients with Advanced Parkinson's Disease
The symptomatic burden of Parkinson’s disease (PD) can be managed effectively for long periods, although no disease-modifying treatments have been developed. The clinical diagnosis of PD is based on
Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease: A Modern and Tailored Approach
People with YOPD tend to have different family and societal engagements compared to those with late-onset PD, and these unique features have implications for clinical management, and call for a tailored multidisplinary approach involving shared-decision making.
3 CSF Biomarkers in Parkinson ’ s Disease 1
Great attention has been drawn to non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, namely cognitive decline, behavioural changes, sleep disorders and autonomic dysfunction, due to their relevant impact on quality of life of parkinsonian patients.
New Understanding on the Pathophysiology and Treatment of Constipation in Parkinson’s Disease
The molecular mechanism of constipation underlying Parkinson’s disease is encapsulated, the progress in the treatments of PD-associated constipation is updated, and the pathophysiological factors contribute to constipation during PD are understood.
Surgical Insights into Parkinson's Disease
The development of potentially restorative treatment modalities, such as gene therapy, neural transplantation and nanotechnology, hold much promise for surgery, both therapeutically and in revealing further insights into Parkinson's disease pathophysiology.
The Genetics of Parkinson Disease
The prevalence, incidence, clinical manifestations, and genetic components of PD are discussed in this review.
