BACKGROUND/AIMS In subthalamic nucleus (STN) deep brain stimulation (DBS) lead implantation, it is still controversial whether it is more appropriate to employ indirect or direct methods in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based tentative targeting and to select single- or multiple-track recording in electrophysiological definitive targeting. The efficacy of single-track electrophysiological recording through direct targeting was compared with the conventional indirect targeting methods in… CONTINUE READING
