abstract

  • Parkinson's disease patients received significant short- and long-term motor benefits, particularly reduced dyskinesias, following staged bilateral pallidotomy without significant short-term cognitive consequences. Two years following the second procedure, bilateral pallidotomy patients tended to show an increase in both motor and non-motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease, particularly cognitive decline.
