  • The objective of this pilot study is to characterize the abnormal neuronal firing patterns of basal ganglia neurons and those in the premotor cortex in patients with treatment-resistant movement disorders undergoing deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Fifteen adult patients with treatment-resistant movement disorders who are undergoing deep brain stimulation surgery at Suburban Hospital, Bethesda, Maryland, will be studied. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This is a physiology study of treatment-resistant movement disorder patients who have been scheduled for implantation of a deep brain stimulation device into the Nucleus accumbens. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This is a physiology study of medically refractory patients who have been scheduled for implantation of a deep brain stimulation device into basal ganglia or thalamic structures. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • We describe the first patient who developed a clinical syndrome related to an IIH following a bilateral subthalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS) procedure for Parkinson's disease with the particularity that the clinical expression of the IIH syndrome was atypical because of the presence of intracerebral electrodes.

  • Deep brain stimulation may have a beneficial effect on driving ability for people with Parkinson's disease, according to a new study published in the December 18, 2013, online issue of Neurology┬«, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. (redorbit.com)
  • Deep brain stimulation uses a surgical implant similar to a pacemaker to send electrical impulses to the brain. (redorbit.com)
  • Up until now, we weren't sure how deep brain stimulation would affect driving," said study author Carsten Buhmann, MD, of University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf in Hamburg, Germany. (redorbit.com)
  • During the last 25 years, more than 100,000 patients have been treated with Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). (mdpi.com)
  • In this contribution, we propose to more thoroughly investigate complex personality-related changes following deep brain stimulation through refined and reliable instruments in order to help patients and their relatives in the post-surgery phase. (mdpi.com)

  • Symptoms
  • These symptoms are caused by a combination of increased intracranial pressure due to a space-occupying lesion (headache, vomiting, confusion, coma), infection (fever, fatigue etc.) and focal neurologic brain tissue damage (hemiparesis, aphasia etc. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • Secondary objectives will involve study of how activity in the brain is modulated in such a task and how DBS can influence the cerebral activity related to decision-making. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The pitfalls and evolution in the diagnosis and treatment of brain abscesses are discussed in this study. (mysciencework.com)
