Abstract


Advanced Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized by the presence of motor fluctuations, various degrees of dyskinesia, and disability with functional impact on daily living and independence. Therapeutic management aims to extend levodopa (L-DOPA) benefit while minimizing motor complications and includes, in selected cases, the implementation of drug infusion and surgical techniques. The concept of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for PD was introduced over 20 years ago, but our understanding of the nuances of this procedure continues to improve. This review aims to demonstrate the advances of DBS in the treatment of PD patients.
