Comparison in efficacy of dopaminergic therapy between a group of ParkinsonÃ¢ÂÂs
disease patients and a group of patients with vascular parkinsonism.
Nowadays it is a common experience in general in medical practice
and more for neurologists that there is an increasing incidence of
signs of cerebral vascular minimal damage detected by radiologic
investigations performed occasionally or not in the common
population diffusely in age range, even involving young people.
Therefore we decided to observe if there could be any statistic
linkage between vascular disease and Parkinson Disease. In
a previous study a first step consisted in showing a statistical
significant incidence of cerebral vasculopathy in a group of
patients affected by Parkinson Disease.
