Deep brain stimulation programming DBS continues to grow as an effective therapy for a wide range of neurological and psychiatric disorders, helping patients reach optimal control of their disorder. With the technique finding so much success, the next question is how to make the complexities of post-operative programming cost-effective, especially when traditional medications and treatments can no longer do the job. The second edition of Deep Brain Stimulation Programming is fully revised and up-to-date with the latest technologies and focuses on post-operative programing, which no other text does.

Deep brain stimulation has developed into an established treatment for movement disorders and is being actively investigated for numerous other neurological as well as psychiatric disorders. An accurate electrode placement in the target area and the effective programming of DBS devices are considered the most important factors for the individual outcome. Recent research in humans highlights the relevance of widespread networks connected to specific DBS targets.

Deep brain stimulation programming DBS continues to grow as an effective therapy for a wide range of neurological and psychiatric disorders, helping patients reach optimal control of their disorder. With the technique finding so much success, the next question is how to make the complexities of post-operative programming cost-effective, especially when traditional medications and treatments can no longer do the job. Montgomery is fully up-to-date and revised with the latest technologies and focuses on post-operative programming, which no other textbook does. The expert author, Dr. Montgomery explores new techniques of programming; including those based on stimulation frequency, closed-loop DBS, and the roles of oscillators in DBS; and new technological advances that make pre-existing theories of pathophysiology obsolete.
This second edition of the book continues the basic premise that a thorough knowledge of the mechanisms by which neurons respond to electrical stimulation, how to control the stimulation and the regional anatomy allows the Deep Brain Stimulation DBS programmer to effectively and efficiently help patients reach optimal control of their disorder. The complexity has expanded because rapid increases in technology, both current and anticipated. The book makes no assumptions as to the prior knowledge or expertise. As the brain fundamentally is an electrical device, the book begins explaining the relevant electronics, building a nearly intuitive knowledge of how electrons are affected by electrical and magnetic forces and how the actions of the programmer controls electrical charges that ultimately activate neurons, which themselves are electrical devices.

Haynes ManualsThe Haynes Author : Erwin B. Montgomery Jr. In many cases it is better than best medical therapy and succeeds even when brain transplants fail. Yet despite the remarkable benefits, many physicians and healthcare professionals seem hesitant to embrace this therapy. Post-operative programming of the DBS systems seems unfamiliar, even mysterious, and is viewed as difficult and time consuming.
Deep brain stimulation DBS is a neurosurgical procedure involving the placement of a medical device called a neurostimulator sometimes referred to as a "brain pacemaker" , which sends electrical impulses, through implanted electrodes , to specific targets in the brain brain nuclei for the treatment of movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease , essential tremor , and dystonia. It is one of few neurosurgical procedures that allow blinded studies. DBS is used to manage some of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease that cannot be adequately controlled with medications. These are the globus pallidus internus , thalamus , subthalamic nucleus and the pedunculopontine nucleus. However, most DBS surgeries in routine practice target either the globus pallidus internus, or the Subthalamic nucleus. Selection of the correct DBS target is a complicated process. Multiple clinical characteristics are used to select the target including — identifying the most troublesome symptoms, the dose of levodopa that the patient is currently taking, the effects and side-effects of current medications and concurrent problems.
There are a great many variables that influence the patient's response to DBS, Deep Brain Stimulation ProgrammingMechanisms, Principles and Practice.

Despite an appropriate targeting and an accurate placement of DBS lead, a thorough and efficient programming is critical for a successful clinical outcome. DBS programming is a time consuming and laborious manual process. The current approach involves use of general guidelines involving determination of the lead type, electrode configuration, impedance check, and battery check. However there are no validated and well-established programming protocols.

Correspondence Address : Dr. Deep brain stimulation DBS has become an established therapeutic tool for treating patients with Parkinson's disease PD who have troublesome motor fluctuations and dyskinesias refractory to best medical therapy. In addition to its proven efficacy in patients with late PD, the EARLYSTIM trial not only demonstrated the efficacy of DBS in patients with early motor complications but also showed that it did not lose its therapeutic efficacy as the years passed by. However, like all other therapies for PD, DBS is not offered to patients either as a cure for this disease nor is it expected to stop the progression of the neurodegenerative process underlying PD; these important issues need to be highlighted to patients who are considering this therapy.
