Course Description

After a variable period of ‘honeymoon period’ with levodopa treatment, patients with PD may begin to develop long-term complications including motor fluctuations and levodopa-induced dyskinesias, which have a negative impact on quality of life and can be a significant challenge to adequate management. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has been an established treatment option for selected patients with long-term complications and recently new devices are being introduced with advanced programming options. In addition, levodopa/carbidopa intrajejunal gel (LCIG) and apomorphine injection/infusion are applied in more and more patients with long-term complications.
