Optimized Propofol Anesthesia Increases Power of Subthalamic Neuronal Activity in Patients with Parkinson’s Disease Undergoing Deep Brain Stimulation
Neurol Ther. 2021 Jun 6. doi: 10.1007/s40120-021-00259-y. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Propofol is a general anesthetic option for deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) of patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). However, its effects on STN activity and neuropsychological outcomes are controversial. The optimal propofol anesthesia for asleep DBS is unknown. This study investigated the safety and effectiveness ... read more
