These are the results of the men's parallel bars competition, one of eight events for male competitors in artistic gymnastics at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. The qualification and final rounds took place on July 29, 31 and August 4 at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion.
Seventy-one gymnasts competed in the compulsory and optional rounds on July 29th and 31st. The eight highest scoring gymnasts advanced to the final on August 4th. Each country was limited to two competitors in the final. Half of the points earned by each gymnast during both the compulsory and optional rounds carried over to the final. This constitutes the "prelim" score.
