Predictive Factors and Subthalamic Stimulation in Parkinson's Disease


Brief description of study

This study identify preoperative predictors of response to subthalamic stimulation at 1 year, 3 years and 5 years in terms of quality of life, from a broad prospective multicenter study French with standardized collection of clinical data , imaging and genetic .

The investigators want to identify factors that predict the improvement of quality of life for one year corresponding to a decrease of PDQ39 score of at least 20 %. They believe that improvement would be less likely to become zero to 3 or 5 years and question the indication of the subthalamic stimulation (risks and costs). This is part of a process of "personalization" of the therapeutic care that is of any interest to the subthalamic stimulation. It is a therapeutic option that could be dangerous if patient selection is not optimal , and expensive, if the benefit is not large enough to reduce the number of medications and hospitalizations medium term . In addition, it will quantify the improvement of quality of life in the longer term and harmonize national assessments .
