Dyskinesia, wearing off (WO) and freezing of gait (FOG) are troublesome complications degrading quality of life in the course of Parkinson’s disease (PD).
This study evaluated the gross chronological trend of 4 motor complications – peak dose dyskinesia (PDSK), diphasic dyskinesia (DDSK), WO and FOG in a large PD population with stratification by age at disease onset according to the PD duration.
The motor complications of 1212 Korean PD patients were analyzed using Kaplan-Meier curves and Cox proportional hazards models.
PDSK and WO appeared first as motor complications and showed accelerated development around the 5 year-PD-duration, while DDSK showed a rather constant development over time and FOG developed around the 10 year-disease duration at an accelerated rate (p
Motor complications developed with a distinguishing inclination over the PD duration. This study provides insight into the chronological trend of motor complications in PD at a glance.
