Deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's disease (PD) utilises an implantable pulse generator (IPG) whose finite lifespan in non-rechargeable systems necessitates their periodic replacement. We wish to determine if there is any significant difference in longevity of 2 commonly used IPG systems; the Medtronic Kinetra, and the Medtronic Activa Primary Cell (PC), which has come to replace it.

Battery longevity is an important factor that may influence the selection of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs). Unfortunately, there remains a lack of industry-wide standardized reporting...
In this protocol, a dual-channel homogeneous aptasenor was proposed for protein molecule determination, employing thrombin as target analyte. The colorimetric and electrochemical transducers were comb...
A wireless intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring system based on the air pressure sensing is proposed in this work. The proposed system is composed of an implantable ICP sensing device and a portable...
Use and Outcomes of Subcutaneous Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) After Trans-venous ICD Extraction: an Analysis of Current Clinical Practice and a Comparison with Trans-venous ICD Reimplantation.
The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) does not require the insertion of any leads into the cardiovascular system.
The aim of the current study was to evaluate the reliability and comparability of virtual unenhanced (VUE) attenuation values derived from scans of a single-source, dual-energy computed tomography usi...
20 users of Ness L300, FES device for ankle dorsiflexion will wear the same FES cuff, yet instead of a single channel stimulation, they will be stimulated with two channels. the purpose of...
A unique single-lead dual-chamber implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) system (produced by Biotronik, Germany) features a conventional electrode in the ventricle (anchored in the v...
The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of dual site-dual channel non-invasive brain stimulation for recovery of language and cognitive function in post stroke patients. Simulta...
The Dual Chamber & Atrial Tachyarrhythmias Adverse Events Study (DATAS) was designed to analyze the ability of dual chamber ICDs (DDED), to reduce clinically significant adverse events as ...
The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of dual site-dual channel non-invasive brain stimulation for recovery of language and cognitive function in healthy. Simultaneous dual si...
A series of tests designed to assess neuropsychological function. The battery is used to diagnose specific cerebral dysfunction and also to determine lateralization.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
Types of artificial pacemakers with implantable leads to be placed at multiple intracardial sites. They are used to treat various cardiac conduction disturbances which interfere with the timing of contraction of the ventricles. They may or may not include defibrillating electrodes (IMPLANTABLE DEFIBRILLATORS) as well.
Implantable devices which continuously monitor the electrical activity of the heart and automatically detect and terminate ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) and VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION. They consist of an impulse generator, batteries, and electrodes.
The normal length of time of an organism's life.
Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition, affecting one person in every 500, 95% of which are over 40. It is caused by degeneration of more than 70% of the substantia nigra, which depletes the dopamine (the neurotransmitter involved in pro...
