Abstract

Patients with advanced Parkinson's disease (PD) often develop motor complications including fluctuations and involuntary movements (dyskinesias). In Denmark, treatment has comprised Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) since the late 1990s, and as from 2002 use of a subcutaneous apomorphine pump. Monotherapy with continuous intestinal levodopa infusion to the duodenum (Duodopa) was introduced in 2004.
