Baumann, Christian R; Waldvogel, Daniel (2013). The treatment of Parkinson's disease. Praxis, 102(25):1529-1535.

Abstract

Parkinson's disease belongs to the most prevalent neurodegenerative disorders and manifests both with motor and non-motor symptoms. Symptomatic treatment of this disorder became more multifaceted over the past years: besides classical dopaminergic drugs and physiotherapy, novel invasive escalation treatment strategies became gold standard in many countries. On the other hand, non-motor symptoms significantly impacts quality of life in many patients which necessitates initiation of adequate therapy.
