Combined Stimulation of STN and SNr for Dysphagia in Parkinson's Disease

The primary endpoint of this study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of combined [STN+SNr] stimulation by "interleaving stimulation" as compared to [standardSTN] after 8 weeks on dysphagia. The Trial is designed as superiority study with an 81% power to detect a clinically relevant mean improvement of 2 points ...
