OBJECTIVES Subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation (STN DBS) is effective for treatment of levodopa-induced dyskinesias in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Medical or surgical procedures requiring electrocautery may require inactivation of the pulse generators to avoid damage to the lead or extension wire or possible reprogramming of the stimulators. This generally causes only mild and temporary disability. We report a patient with previously well-controlled dyskinesias who had severe… CONTINUE READING
