DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION provides expert advice to the reader on selection guidelines and programming techniques for straight-forward as well as for challenging case management in movement and neuropsychiatric disorders. The collection offers a broad DBS experience that is delivered directly to you by Aleaders in neuromodulation. There are both common and uncommon case presentations and each case is accompanied by a literature review and pearls to improve your practice. The book improves fundamental DBS techniques as well as expands the skills necessary for troubleshooting more difficult presentations. The case-based problem-solving approach makes this a fun and practical read.
