Default 35 Years with PD

Even after more than 35 years of disease, L-dopa and STN-DBS remain effective on PD cardinal symptoms. Although axial, autonomic, and neuropsychological features may become key determinants of disability, some patients maintain a satisfactory quality of life, without significant motor and non-motor impairment.
