This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The aim of this review is to collect all the existing evidence in favour of the implementation of the STN stimulation surgery for patients with idiopathic PD. We intend to evaluate the safety and efficacy profile of the STN stimulation surgery with respect to the best medical treatment or to others deep brain surgery procedures.
