Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy and Safety of Rotigotine Used During Surgery Under General Anaesthesia Assessed by Anaesthesiologist. [ Time Frame: After subject wakes up from general anesthesia ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Questionnaire including 4 items Range of sum score: 4 to 24 Range of item scores: 1 (I agree completely) to 6 (I don't agree at all) Item 1: Patient did not show unexpected symptoms Item 2: Handling was simple Item 3: Handling wasn't time-consuming Item 4: Patch is a considerable option

  • Efficacy and Safety of Rotigotine Used During Surgery Under General Anaesthesia Assessed by Neurologist. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Questionnaire including 4 items Range of sum score: 4 to 24 Range of item scores: 1 (I agree completely) to 6 (I don't agree at all) Item 1: Switch to patch was easily feasible Item 2: Re-switch was easily feasible Item 3: Patient did not show unexpected symptoms Item 4: Patch is a feasible option

  • Efficacy and Safety of Rotigotine Used During Surgery Under General Anaesthesia Assessed by Patient. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Questionnaire including 3 items Range of sum score: 3 to 18 Range of item scores: 1 (I agree completely) to 6 (I don't agree at all) Item 1: Therapy with patch was easily feasible Item 2: Symptoms of Parkinson's Disease were well controlled Item 3: I felt safe with the Parkinson patch


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Plasma Concentration of Rotigotine After Use. [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 14
Study Start Date: September 2007
Study Completion Date: May 2008
Primary Completion Date: May 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Rotigotine
Drug: Rotigotine

2 mg/24 h, 4 mg/24 h, 6 mg/24 h and 8 mg/24 h patch;

Single patches and a combination of 2 of these patches for a dosage of up to 16 mg/24 h;

One (1) regimen on day of surgery, but exceptionally extended for up to 2 (two) weeks if the patient requires unexpected ventilation after surgery.


  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 80 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject has idiopathic Parkinson's disease (early- or advanced-stage), as defined by the cardinal sign bradykinesia, plus the presence of at least one of the following: resting tremor, rigidity, or postural instability and is without any other known or suspected cause of Parkinsonism.
  • Subject is scheduled for an operation requiring general anesthesia.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject has previously been treated with rotigotine.
  • Subject has a history of significant skin hypersensitivity to adhesives or other transdermals or recent unresolved contact dermatitis or has a known allergy or hypersensitivity to rotigotine or to other components of the patch.
  • Subject is scheduled for a surgical procedure (surgery per protocol(SPP)) that requires magnetic resonance imaging or cardioversion.
  • Subject has a high probability to require extended postoperative ventilation (> 24 hours).
  • Subject has any medical condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, could jeopardize or compromise the subject's ability to participate in this trial.
