Who are we, if not measured by our impact on others? That’s who we are! We’re not who we say we are, we’re not who we want to be — we are the sum of the influence and impact that we have, in our lives, on others.

What sweetens my day?

The hues of the sky
The temperature of the ocean
The youthful flower’s nectaries
And fruit hanging from the trees
As if reaching back to the Earth, its Mother

As I stand, cocooned
In peaceful production;
Careful drapery

Outside there is the heat of the sun
Seeking submersion
In the depths of your pupils
The touch of your lips

And even just to imagine
The end of the universe
The limits of my dreams
The beat of my ventricles

Patients treated with STN-DBS showed a long-lasting superior clinical efficacy on motor fluctuations, with a significant reduction in the average percentage of the waking day spent in ‘OFF’ and in the duration and disability of dyskinesia. Moreover, operated patients showed a better outcome in the activities of daily living in ‘Medication-OFF’ condition. On the other hand, a similar progression of motor score and cognitive/behavioural alterations was observed between the two groups, apart from phonemic verbal fluency, which significantly worsened in STN-DBS patients.

Conclusions - To our knowledge, this is the first long-term comparison between medical and surgical therapies; a superior efficacy of STN-DBS was observed on motor disability, while no significant differences were observed in the progression of motor symptoms and, apart from phonemic verbal fluency, of neuropsychological alterations.
