We present a series of patients participating in clinical trials with the rotigotine transdermal system. All patients were scheduled for surgery with general anaesthesia unrelated to the trial procedure or to rotigotine. Perioperative administration of rotigotine appeared to be feasible and efficacious. No safety issues emerged from these observations.
