Influence of Virchow-Robin spaces on the electric field distribution in subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation
Clin Neurol Neurosurg. 2021 Mar 9;204:106596. doi: 10.1016/j.clineuro.2021.106596. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPatient MRI from DBS implantations in the subthalamic nucleus (STN) were reviewed and it was found that around 10% had Virchow-Robin spaces (VRS). Patient-specific models were developed to evaluate changes in the electric field (EF) around DBS leads. The patients (n = 7) were implanted bilaterally either with the ... read more
