Parkinson's Disease | Fatigue and Cardiac Sympathetic Denervation in Parkinson Disease

Parkinson's Disease research study

What is the primary objective of this study?

The purpose of this research study is to learn about a possible association between cardiac denervation (the breaking down of nerves in the heart) and the development of fatigue in Parkinson's disease (PD).
