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.

RATIONALE: Dystonia is a disorder in which the muscles that control voluntary movements are persistently or intermittently contracted (not relaxed). Deep brain stimulation is provided by a...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN)for dystonia.
To compile characteristics of real-world outcomes of Boston Scientific Corporation's commercially approved VerciseTM Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Systems for the treatment of dystonia.
Dystonia is increasingly being considered as a multi-nodal network disorder involving both basal ganglia and cerebellar dysfunction. The aim of this study is to determine if "Multi-Target"...
The purpose of this study is to allow patients to undergo deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery for the treatment of dystonia. This is NOT a research study, but rather, a requirement by th...
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an established treatment for generalized dystonia. However, the DBS device is sometimes removed owing to hardware complications. Here, we present four cases of generali...
Off state toe dystonia (TD) is a symptom frequently encountered in Parkinson's disease (PD), but little is known about its evolution after subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation (STN-DBS).
Primary dystonia is a neurological disease with the characteristics of abnormal, involuntary twisting and turning movements, which greatly affects life quality of patients. Treatments for dystonia con...
Little is known about the quality of life of people with dystonia and DBS beyond 5 years. The objectives of this study were (1) to examine the long-term quality-of-life outcomes in a large cohort of p...
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.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
