Abstract : Background: Parkinson’s disease mild cognitive impairment (PD-MCI) is frequent and heterogenous. There is no consensus about its influence on subthalamic deep brain stimulation (STN-DBS) outcomes. Objective: To determine the prevalence of PD-MCI and its subtypes in candidates to STN-DBS. Secondarily, we sought to identify MRI structural markers associated with cognitive impairment in these subgroups. Methods: Baseline data from the French multicentric PREDISTIM cohort were used. Candidates to STN-DBS were classified according to their cognitive performance in normal cognition (PD-NC) or PD-MCI. The latter included frontostriatal (PD-FS) and posterior cortical (PD-PC) subtypes. Between-group comparisons were performed on demographical and clinical variables as well as on T1-weighted MRI sequences at the cortical and subcortical levels. Results: 320 patients were included: 167 (52%) PD-NC and 153 (48%) PD-MCI patients. The latter group included 123 (80%) PD-FS and 30 (20%) PD-PC patients. There was no between-group difference regarding demographic and clinical variables. PD-PC patients had significantly lower global efficiency than PD-FS patients and significantly worse performance on visuospatial functions, episodic memory, and language. Compared to PD-NC, PD-MCI patients had cortical thinning and radiomic-based changes in the left caudate nucleus and hippocampus. There were no significant differences between the PD-MCI subtypes. Conclusion: Among the candidates to STN-DBS, a significant proportion has PD-MCI which is associated with cortical and subcortical alterations. Some PD-MCI patients have posterior cortical deficits, a subtype known to be at higher risk of dementia.
