Deep Brain Stimulation

Silberstein, G. Mellick, F. Sinclair, G. Fracchia, D. Wasson, and P. Stanwell St Andrews and Wesley Hospitals, Brisbane and Royal North Shore Private Hospital, Sydney, Australia Subthalamic nucleus (STN) deep brain stimulation (DBS) has become an established treatment strategy for patients with medically refractory Parkinson's disease (PD). There are however numerous strategies employed for STN lead placement. Variations include method of STN localisation, use...
