Abstract Article abstract-The authors studied the effect of bilateral subthalamic nucleus stimulation on levodopa-induced dyskinesias in 24 consecutive parkinsonian patients with disabling dyskinesias. The improvement in the three subtypes of levodopa-induced dyskinesias was significant from the third postoperative month and was mainly due to the decrease in the daily dose of levodopa allowed by the stimulation-induced improvement in the motor score.
