Post-Operative Localization of Deep Brain Stimulation Electrodes in the Subthalamus Using Transcranial Sonography.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The correct positioning of deep brain stimulation electrodes determines the success of surgery. In this study, we attempt to validate transcranial sonography (TCS) as a method for early postoperative confirmation of electrode location in the subthalamic nucleus (STN). MATERIALS AND METHODS Nineteen patients diagnosed with Parkinson's disease… (More)
