As there is currently no standardized assessment tool for evaluating Parkinson disease (PD) patients for deep brain stimulation (DBS), the authors developed the Florida Surgical Questionnaire for Parkinson Disease (FLASQ-PD). Part I of the study was a retrospective analysis of 174 patients presenting for a surgical screening. Part II was a multicenter study to assess the correlation of FLASQ-PD scores. The results of this study suggest that the FLASQ-PD may be a useful triage tool for screening PD patients for DBS surgery.
