Globus pallidus (GPi) deep brain stimulation can markedly improve severe medication-refractory Parkinson's disease (PD) and dystonia. Appropriate perioperative patient management can assist with electrode implantation. Optimizing stimulation settings and simultaneously adjusting medications (when appropriate) can substantially improve patient outcomes. Although there are a large number of possible stimulation settings, in clinical practice, a relatively narrow range of settings has been shown… CONTINUE READING
