Treatment of movement disorders using deep brain stimulation - illustrative case reports and technical notes
Tadej Strojnik, Dušan Flisar, Igor Drstvenšek, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: Operative neuromodulation is the field of electrically or chemically altering the signal transmission in the nervous system by implanted devices in order to excite, inhibit or tune the activities of neurons or neural networks to produce therapeutic effects. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an important component of the therapy of movement disorders and has almost completely replaced high-frequency coagulation of brain tissue in stereotactic neurosurgery. This article presents the first DBS cases in Slovenia. In the article the technical features and adjustments of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and development of a new microdrive, which was clinically successfully tested, are described and discussed.
Keywords: operative neuromodulation, microdrive, stereotaxy, Parkinson’s disease, MR imaging
