Abstract

While the positive effects that deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) exerts on motor functions in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) are well known, not all patients respond similarly to the treatment. One plausible explanation is the numerous combinations between the chosen DBS electrode contacts and programming settings that include voltage, pulse width and frequency. Consequently, on average, finding the setting for optimal symptom control requires on average 6 sessions over 6 months.
