The subthalamic nucleus (STN) is the main target of deep brain stimulation (DBS) treatment for severe idiopathic Parkinson's disease. But there is still no clear information on the location of the effective contacts (used during the chronic phase of stimulation). Our aim was to assess the anatomical structures of the subthalamic area (STA) involved during chronic DBS. Ten patients successfully treated were included. The surgical procedure was based on direct STN targeting (stereotactic MRI… CONTINUE READING
