MORENO LOPEZ, Claudia Lucia  e  CERQUERA CLEVES, Sonia Catalina. Treatment of motor complications in Parkinson's disease. Acta Neurol Colomb. [online]. 2019, vol.35, suppl.1, pp.19-27. ISSN 0120-8748.

Motor fluctuations and dyskinesias are complications that invariably occur with the progression of Parkinson's disease, affecting about 90 % of patients after ten years of disease. The treatment of these conditions requires an understanding of the pattern, features and type of motor fluctuations and dyskinesias in each patient. In this chapter, the characteristics of motor complications are reviewed and the strategies and algorithms for its management are described, including the indications and recommendations of the available advanced therapies in Colombia, such as functional neurosurgery and subcutaneous apomorphine.

Palavras-chave : Parkinson's disease; complications; drug therapy; therapeutics; infusion pumps; surgery; deep brain stimulation; consensus (MeSH).
