Deep brain stimulation (DBS) refers to the delivery of electric current to specific deep brain structures through implanted electrodes. Recently approved for use in United States, DBS to the anterior nucleus of thalamus (ANT) is a safe and effective alternative treatment for medically refractory seizures. Despite the anti-seizure effects of ANT DBS, preclinical and clinical studies have failed to demonstrate it actions at a whole brain level.
Deep brain stimulation is a powerful neurostimulation technique that proved its efficacy in treating a group of neurological diseases. Several scientific works tried to understand the mechanism of action of deep brain stimulation. Wang et al (J Neurosci 38:4556-4568, 2018) demonstrated a new evidence on the role of inter-regional neuro-oscillatory coherence as a promising model to explain mechanism of deep brain stimulation.
Sedatives and opioids used during deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery interfere with optimal target localization and add to side effects and risks, and thus should be minimized.
Directional deep brain stimulation (DBS) allows steering the stimulation in an axial direction which offers greater flexibility in programming. However, accurate anatomical visualization of the lead orientation is required for interpreting the observed stimulation effects and to guide programming.
Performed as one of the major treatments for advanced Parkinson's disease (PD), deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery can induce adverse effects (AEs) on cognition, gait, mood, speech and swallowing, which are frequently reported and seriously affect the patient's daily life.
The aim of this study was to compare the volume of the thalamus obtained from the radiological and anatomical sections and evaluate the results in terms of deep brain stimulation (DBS) procedures.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has shown to have antidepressant effects in both human trials and animal studies. However, the optimal target and the underlying therapeutic mechanisms remain to be determined. In this study, we investigated if high frequency (HF) DBS in the dorsal peduncular cortex (DPC) alleviates depressive-like behavior in an experimental model of depression. Surprisingly, HF DBS in the DPC caused acute induction of seizures in ~40% of animals stimulated with clinically relevant stimulation ...
A network of cortical, subcortical and brainstem structures might be involved in freezing of gait (FOG). Subthalamic nucleus (STN) deep brain stimulation (DBS) could modulate this network. The audio-spinal reflex (ASR), reduced in PD, but increased by treatment, can be used to further investigate that locomotor network. The aim of this study is to find whether a correlation exists between ASR and FOG in PD patients under DBS.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) involves placing electrodes within specific deep brain nuclei. For movement disorders the most common indications are tremors, Parkinsons disease and dystonias. Surgeons mostly employ MR imaging for preoperative target selection. MR field geometrical distortion may contribute to target-selection error in the MR scan which can contribute to error in electrode placement.
It is not clear whether cognitive adverse events can occur after subthalamic nuclei deep brain stimulation in Parkinson's disease, and the putative mechanisms are poorly understood.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is less effective on voice tremor than arm tremor, and it is generally assumed that successful voice tremor treatment requires bilateral DBS and possibly more precise thalamic stimulation. However, recent findings suggest that these assumptions should be reconsidered.
Clinical response to deep brain stimulation (DBS) strongly depends on the appropriate placement of the electrode in the targeted structure. Postoperative MRI is recognized as the gold standard to verify the DBS-electrode position in relation to the intended anatomical target. However, intraoperative computed tomography (iCT) might be a feasible alternative to MRI.
Obesity has become a worldwide epidemic, with very few long-term successful treatment options for refractory disease. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the bilateral lateral hypothalamus (LH) in refractory obesity has been performed safely, but questions remain regarding optimal settings and its effects on metabolic rate. The goals of this experiment were to determine optimal DBS settings and then to determine the actual effect of optimal stimulation on energy expenditure.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a new therapeutic approach for treatment-resistant depression (TRD). There is a preliminary evidence of the efficacy and safety of DBS for TRD in the subgenual anterior cingulate cortex, the ventral capsule/ventral striatum, the nucleus accumbens, the lateral habenula, the inferior thalamic peduncle, the medial forebrain bundle, and the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis. Optimal stimulation targets, however, have not yet been determined. Here we provide updated knowledge su...
Moving from awake surgery under local anesthesia to asleep surgery under general anesthesia will require to precisely predict the outcome of deep brain stimulation.
Deep brain stimulation is an essential therapeutic tool in Parkinson's disease.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) and the proper target for chronic cluster headache (CCH) are still subjects of controversy.
Dystonia is a painful and disabling disorder, characterised by painful, involuntary posturing of the affected body region(s). Deep brain stimulation is an intervention typically reserved for severe and drug-refractory cases, although uncertainty exists regarding its efficacy, safety, and tolerability.
Subthalamic deep brain stimulation (STN-DBS) is an established treatment for late stage Parkinson's disease (PD). Speech intelligibility (SI) and verbal fluency (VF) have been shown to deteriorate following chronic STN-DBS. It has been suggested that speech might respond favourably to low frequency stimulation (LFS).
Thalamic ventral intermediate nucleus (VIM) deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an effective therapy for medication-refractory essential tremor (ET). However, 13-40% of patients with an initially robust tremor efficacy lose this benefit over time despite reprogramming attempts. At our institution, a cohort of ET patients with VIM DBS underwent implantation of a second anterior (ventralis oralis anterior; VOA) DBS lead to permit "confined stimulation." We sought to assess whether confined stimulation conferred a...
Many lines of evidence suggest that response conflict recruits brain regions in the cortical-basal ganglia system. Within the basal ganglia, deep brain recordings from the subthalamic nucleus (STN) have shown that conflict triggers a transient increase in low-frequency oscillations (LFO, 2-8Hz). Here, we deployed a new method of delivering short trains of event-related deep brain stimulation (DBS) to the STN to test the causal role of the STN and its associated circuits in conflict-related processing.
The nucleus accumbens (NAcc) has been suggested as a possible target for deep brain stimulation (DBS) in the treatment of obesity. Our hypothesis was that NAcc-DBS would modulate brain regions related to reward and food intake regulation, consequently reducing the food intake and, finally, the weight gain. Therefore, we examined changes in brain glucose metabolism, weight gain and food intake after NAcc-DBS in a rat model of obesity.
Tourette syndrome (TS) is a neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by childhood onset motor and phonic tics. In refractory cases, deep brain stimulation (DBS) with different targets including anteromedial Globus pallidus (AM-GPi) looks promising.
Voice tremor (VT) is the involuntary and rhythmical phonatory instability of the voice. Recent findings suggest that unilateral deep brain stimulation of the ventral intermediate nucleus (Vim-DBS) can sometimes be effective for VT. In this exploratory analysis, we investigated the effect of Vim-DBS on VT and tested the hypothesis that unilateral thalamic stimulation is effective for patients with VT.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the medial forebrain bundle (MFB) displays a promising antidepressant effects in patients with treatment-refractory depression; however, a clear consensus on underlying mechanisms is still enigmatic. Herein, we investigated the effects of MFB-DBS on anhedonic-like behavior using the Froot Loops® consumption in a chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUS) model of depression, biochemical estimation of peripheral and central inflammatory cytokines, stress hormone, and brain-deriv...
