OBJECTIVES To determine the effect of electrode contact location on efficacy of bilateral globus pallidus internus (GPi) deep brain stimulation (DBS) for primary generalised dystonia (PGD). SUBJECTS AND METHODS A consecutive series of 15 patients with PGD (10 females, mean age 42 years, seven DYT1) who underwent bilateral GPi DBS, were assessed using the Burke-Fahn-Marsden (BFM) dystonia scale before and 6 months after surgery. The position of the stimulated electrode contact(s) was… CONTINUE READING
