Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a widely accepted therapy for medically refractory Parkinson's disease (PD). Both globus pallidus internus (GPi) and subthalamic nucleus (STN) stimulation are safe and effective in improving the symptoms of PD and reducing dyskinesias. STN DBS is the most commonly performed surgery for PD as compared to GPi DBS. Ventral intermediate nucleus (Vim) DBS is infrequently used as an alternative for tremor predominant PD patients. Patient selection is critical in… 
Deep brain stimulation for movement disorders: Patient selection and technical options
TLDR
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is used as a treatment for movement disorders and is considered safe and effective for the management of the motor symptoms of these disorders, although it does not cure the underlying conditions.
Surgical Treatment of Parkinson’s Disease: Patients, Targets, Devices, and Approaches
TLDR
The historical aspects of surgical treatments, the selection of an appropriate DBS candidate, the current surgical techniques, and recently introduced DBS-related technologies are discussed.
Methodological Considerations for Neuroimaging in Deep Brain Stimulation of the Subthalamic Nucleus in Parkinson’s Disease Patients
TLDR
A number of approaches are highlighted including the use of ultra-high field (UHF) MRI to overcome limitations of standard settings and the optimization of pre-operative planning with MRI, which may require combined expertise of traditional radiologists, clinicians, and fundamental researchers.
Neuromodulation Approaches in Parkinson’s Disease Using Deep Brain Stimulation and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
TLDR
Since its introduction in the late 1980s, deep brain stimulation (DBS) has revolutionized the treatment of PD, with demonstrated efficacy in early PD and essential tremor, and promising preliminary results in thetreatment of epilepsy, psychiatric disease, and depression.
MODELLING, SIMULATION, AND VISUALIZATION OF DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION
TLDR
Investigating technical and clinical aspects of DBS by means of finite element models, simulations, and visualizations of the electric field and tissue anatomy provided insights that may help to improve DBS as a treatment for movement disorders as well as for other neurological diseases in the future.

TLDR
An introduction to residents or trainees starting a career in movement disorders of the technical aspects of this therapy and the evidence base for its use is provided.
State of the Art for Deep Brain Stimulation Therapy in Movement Disorders: A Clinical and Technological Perspective
TLDR
The goal of this review is to describe the current status of DBS in the context of movement disorders, outline the mechanisms of action for DBS, discuss the standard surgical and imaging techniques, and discuss the patient selection and clinical outcomes in each of the movement disorders.
Stereotactic implantation of deep brain stimulation electrodes: a review of technical systems, methods and emerging tools
TLDR
An overview of a typical DBS implantation procedure and current supporting techniques is given and an “intuitive visualisation” interface for improving management of these data in relation to surgery is suggested.

Deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus for Parkinson's disease: methodologic aspects and clinical criteria.
TLDR
DBS of the subthalamic nucleus of Parkinson's disease is associated with a marked improvement of motor function even in patients with advanced PD, and the most precise localization of the STN is obtained by using ventriculography to determine the stereotactic coordinates of theSTN.
Comparison of pallidal and subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation for advanced Parkinson's disease: results of a randomized, blinded pilot study.
TLDR
Pallidal and STN stimulation appears to be safe and efficacious for the management of advanced PD, with significant differences in symptom response and the interaction of L-dopa with stimulation at either site.
Acute and long-term effects of subthalamic nucleus stimulation in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
STN stimulation in patients suffering from severe akinetic forms of PD, postulated that the excessive output from the subthalamic nucleus plays a critical role, is carried out.
COMPARISON OF THREE METHODS OF TARGETING THE SUBTHALAMIC NUCLEUS FOR CHRONIC STIMULATION IN PARKINSON'S DISEASE
TLDR
The use of the RN as an internal fiducial marker for targeting the optimal region of STN stimulation was reliable and closely approximates the position of the electrode contact that provides the optimal clinical results.

TLDR
The technical approach to subthalamic nucleus (STN) and globus pallidus internus (GPi) DBS implantation, based on 180 STN implants and 75 GPi implants is presented.
Microelectrode-guided implantation of deep brain stimulators into the globus pallidus internus for dystonia: techniques, electrode locations, and outcomes.
TLDR
Patients with juvenile-onset primary dystonia and those with the tardive form benefited greatly from this procedure, whereas benefits for most secondary dystonias and the adult-ONSet craniocervical form of this disorder were more modest.
Electrical stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus in advanced Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Electrical stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus is an effective treatment for advanced Parkinson's disease and the severity of symptoms off medication decreases, and the dose of levodopa can be reduced with consequent reduction in dyskinesias.
Stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus compared with the globus pallidus internus in patients with Parkinson disease.
TLDR
The improvement of parkinsonian symptoms during stimulation of the GPi, STN, and both nuclei simultaneously may indicate a similar DBS mechanism for both nucleo in inducing antiparkinsonian effects, although STN is more effective.
