Subthalamic deep brain stimulation with a constant-current device in Parkinson's disease: an open-label randomised controlled trial

Jan 11, 2012 - Constant-current DBS of the subthalamic nucleus produced significant improvements in good quality on time when compared with a control group without stimulation. Future trials should compare the effects of constant-current DBS with those of voltage-controlled stimulation.

Deep brain stimulation in Parkinson's disease: opening up the race towards better technology
Jan 11, 2012 - In this issue of The Lancet Neurology, Michael Okun and colleagues1 report on a randomised controlled trial of subthalamic neurostimulation for the treatment of advanced Parkinson's disease. The study confirms the marked benefit that deep brain stimulation (DBS) exerts on parkinsonian motor symptoms, and also offers interesting and novel findings about this surgical therapy.
