Objective To evaluate the long-term effects of deep brain stimulation (DBS) on quality of life (QOL) in therapy-refractory obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) patients. Design 16 patients who met Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed) (DSM-IV) criteria for OCD and were considered therapy-refractory were treated with DBS. Patients were assessed 1 month before device implantation (T0), at 8 months of active stimulation (T1) and at 3–5 years of active stimulation (T2). QOL… Expand
Rebound of Affective Symptoms Following Acute Cessation of Deep Brain Stimulation in Obsessive-compulsive Disorder
TLDR
Acute DBS cessation causes a relapse of obsessions and compulsions and a rebound of anxiety and depression, and improvements on QoL disappear. Expand
Deep Brain Stimulation for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: A Meta-Analysis of Treatment Outcome and Predictors of Response
TLDR
It is confirmed that DBS constitutes a valid alternative to lesional surgery for severe, therapy-refractory OCD patients and well-controlled, randomized studies with larger samples are needed to establish the optimal targeting and stimulation conditions. Expand
Cognitive effects of deep brain stimulation in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
TLDR
The results suggest that severity of OCD symptoms is independent of cognitive functioning, and deep brain stimulation targeted at the NAcc may be considered a safe method in terms of cognition because cognitive functioning was unaffected on most neuropsychological measures. Expand
Six-Nine Year Follow-Up of Deep Brain Stimulation for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
TLDR
DBS of the VC/VS region did not reveal a sustained response for comorbid depressive symptoms in patients with a primary diagnosis of OCD, and DBS was safe and conferred a long-term benefit in reduction of obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Expand
Deep brain stimulation in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder: current perspectives
TLDR
A review of DBS in obsessive-compulsive disorder, considered as a last treatment resort by most of learned societies in psychiatry, and the latest hypotheses about the understanding of cortico-striato-thalamo-cortical circuits could offer new directions including clinical predictors and biomarkers to perform adaptive closed-loop systems in the next future. Expand
Effects of Deep Brain Stimulation on the Lived Experience of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Patients: In-Depth Interviews with 18 Patients
TLDR
It is suggested that the experience of anxiety and tension gives way to an increased basic trust and increased reliance on one’s abilities during DBS treatment, and many of these changes can be seen as different expressions of the same process. Expand
Deep Brain Stimulation in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
TLDR
Research can contribute to defining the place of DBS within treatment algorithms for OCD and will open a new perspective for OCD patients by moving the limits of refractoriness further away. Expand
The cost-effectiveness of deep brain stimulation for patients with treatment-resistant obsessive-compulsive disorder
TLDR
The results showed that DBS is a cost-effective treatment for TROCD in both the countries and provides economic evidence on the applicability of DBS for patients, health care service providers, and payers. Expand
Deep brain stimulation and treatment-resistant obsessive-compulsive disorder: A systematic review.
TLDR
The critical analysis of the evidence shows that the use of DBS in treatment-resistant OCD is providing satisfactory results regarding efficacy, with assumable side-effects, however, there is insufficient evidence to support theUse of any single brain target over another. Expand
Clinical Outcome and Mechanisms of Deep Brain Stimulation for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
TLDR
Evidence from DBS animal models converges with human DBS EEG and imaging findings, in that DBS may be effective for OCD by reduction of hyperconnectivity between frontal and striatal areas. Expand

TLDR
Bilateral deep brain stimulation of the nucleus accumbens may be an effective and safe treatment for treatment-refractory OCD and no permanent adverse events were reported. Expand

TLDR
DBS may be a promising and safe therapy for treatment-resistant OCD and larger prospective studies including neuroimaging are needed to estimate adequately the true potential in treatment of OCD. Expand

TLDR
This pilot study suggests that DBS of the ventral capsule/ventral striatum region is a promising therapy of last resort for carefully selected cases of severe and intractable OCD. Expand
Subjective quality of life of patients with obsessive–compulsive disorder
TLDR
Subjective quality of life in patients with OCD was examined and compared to the general German population and to patients with schizophrenia, finding that OCD has a substantial adverse effect on patients’ subjective QoL, which may be even greater than the adverse effect of schizophrenia. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that CBGT is effective in reducing the intensity of OCD symptoms and of overvalued ideas, and that it improves the OCD patient’s quality of life in a short period of time. Expand
Quality of Life and its Correlates in Patients With Obsessive‐compulsive Disorder
TLDR
The analysis revealed that QOL scores for the general, physical, psychological and social relationship domains were lower in the OCD group than in the control group; however, no difference in the environmental domain was found. Expand
[Quality of life in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder: relations with cognitive functions and clinical symptoms].
TLDR
It is revealed that quality of life is lower in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder than in healthy subjects and is related to cognitive functions and the severity of obsessive-Compulsive symptoms. Expand
A randomized clinical trial of cognitive-behavioral group therapy and sertraline in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
TLDR
Cognitive-behavioral group therapy and sertraline have shown to be effective in reducing OCD symptoms, and the rate of symptom reduction, intensity reduction of compulsions, and percentage of patients who obtained full remission were significantly higher in patients treated with CBGT. Expand
