Proper lead placement is considered one of the key factors in achieving a good clinical outcome in deep brain stimulation (DBS), but there is still considerable controversy surrounding the accuracy of the frameless in comparison to the frame-based technique.

Name: Stereotactic and functional neurosurgery
Internal pulse generator (IPG) replacement is considered a relatively minor surgery but exposes the deep brain stimulation system to the risk of infectious and mechanical adverse events. We retrospect...
First-line pharmacological therapies have shown limited efficacy in status dystonicus (SD), while surgery is increasingly reported as remediable in refractory cases. In this context, there is no evide...
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) patients undergo extensive preoperative and postoperative evaluation, but the field lacks robust scoring system for quantifying DBS surgery.
Urachal remnants are relatively rare. Generally, urachal remnants are detected in young people, and the removed specimen is small, comprising a good indication for laparoscopic surgery. Laparoendoscop...
Battery life of the most commonly used implantable pulse generators in deep brain stimulation is limited. Device replacement is costly and may expose patients to additional risks. Driven by the observ...
In this single-center trial, we aim to include 8 patients with severe and medically refractory Tourette's syndrome. All patients undergo deep brain stimulation surgery with two electrodes ...
The brain networks controlling movement are complex, involving multiple areas of the brain. Some neurological diseases, like Parkinson's disease, cause abnormalities in the brain networks....
The precise mechanisms underlying cerebral regulation of lower urinary tract (LUT) function are still poorly understood. Patients with deep brain stimulation (DBS) offer the unique opportu...
We will evaluate the effect of deep brain stimulation on the depression and quality of life in Parkinson’s disease. We aim to compare depression pre-operatively and post-operatively in ...
Twenty patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) will be included into this single center randomized controlled double-blind clinical trial (RCT) in a cross-over design. The treatm...
Therapy for MOVEMENT DISORDERS, especially PARKINSON DISEASE, that applies electricity via stereotactic implantation of ELECTRODES in specific areas of the BRAIN such as the THALAMUS. The electrodes are attached to a neurostimulator placed subcutaneously.
Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.
A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.
The part of brain that lies behind the BRAIN STEM in the posterior base of skull (CRANIAL FOSSA, POSTERIOR). It is also known as the "little brain" with convolutions similar to those of CEREBRAL CORTEX, inner white matter, and deep cerebellar nuclei. Its function is to coordinate voluntary movements, maintain balance, and learn motor skills.
Measurable changes in activities in the CEREBRAL CORTEX upon a stimulation. A change in cortical excitability as measured by various techniques (e.g., TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION) is associated with brain disorders.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
