Motor evoked potentials versus Macrostimulation in predicting the postoperative motor threshold in STN Deep brain stimulation
Clin Neurol Neurosurg. 2022 Jun 8;219:107332. doi: 10.1016/j.clineuro.2022.107332. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Accuracy is crucial in Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). Electrophysiological and image-based techniques are used to avoid suboptimal positioning. Macrostimulation is the gold standard to delineate the therapeutic window intraoperatively. Despite this, electrode revision rates due to malpositioning are as high as 17%. The goal was to compare motor ... read more
