 Papathanasiou I., Protopapas A., Deligiorgi G., Lolakidi A., Kasselimis D., Themistocleous M., Bovia
Description: Impairment of speech can affect almost 89% of patients with Parkinsonís disease. The speech of PD patients is described as hypokinetic dysarthria and has been analyzed in an extensive range of perceptual acoustic and physiological studies. Today, bilateral subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation is considered as the main surgical management approach for patients with PD. This compares the effects of STN-DBS with medical (drug) treatment versus medical (drug) treatment alone over one year.
