Pallidal Stimulation in Patients With Idiopathic Generalised Dystonia

2014-08-27 03:50:54 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Pallidal stimulation is effective in patients with generalised idiopathic dystonia. The aim of this study is to:

1. evaluate the efficacy and safety of this treatment in patients with idiopathic generalised dystonia, 3 years after surgery and

2. assess the recurrence of the motor symptoms after the switch off.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
