DBS sucess in Familial cases
Posted 27 February 2012 - 06:28 PM
What is your impression in regard to the chance or level of success in DBS for PD patients whose family members also have PD?
a. No difference (no corelation btw regular and familial cases)
b. DBS seems to provide more benefits/improvements for the gene-related cases.
c. DBS does not seem to work for familial cases.
The reason i'm asking is because my father, who is now deceased, also had PD. Appreciate the samples may be quite low but any anecdotes would be much appreciated.
Thank You very much.
