ABSTRACT
Objective To observe progression of motor symptoms and occurrence of motor complications in parkinsonian patients and investigate the rate of progression of motor symptoms and risk factors of motor complications.Methods One hundred and thirty patients diagnosed with PD in 2007 in Department of Neurology,Xinhua Hospital were followed up for 3 years.The Unified Parkinson' s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) and H-Y staging were used to assess and follow up motor symptoms and occurrence of motor complications,and analyze the rate of progression of motor symptoms and risk factors of motor complications with statistics.Results ( 1 ) Mean annual growth in H-Y staging was 2.5%,and UPDRS motor scores was 3.1% ; the incidence of dysphagia at endpoint in patients was increased by 23.0% compared with baseline; incidence of falls was increased by 16.7%;(2)Daily levodopa dose at endpoint ( OR =1.004,95% CI 1.001—1.006,P =0.008 ) was independent risk factors with dyskinesia; While duration ( OR =1.637,95% CI 1.083—2.473,P =0.019 ),levodopa treatment duration ( OR =0.698,95% CI 0.494—0.987,P =0.042 ),daily levodopa dose at haseline ( OR =1.005,95% CI 1.001—1.010,P =0.016) and at endpoint ( OR =1.014,95 % CI 1.001 —1.027,P =0.032 ) were risk factors with motor fluctuations.Conclusions As the disease progresses,motor function in parkinsonian patients gradually worsens,the incidence of swallowing difficulty and of falls is increased,and the incidence of motor complications is increased.The total exposure to levodopa in parkinsonian patients is predictor for motor complications.
