Deep Brain Stimulation I: Basic Principles and Programming in Movement Disorders
Friday April 27, 2018 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Jill Ostrem MD, FAAN
Deep brain stimulation therapy is widely used to treat medically refractory movement disorders, including essential tremor, Parkinson's disease, and dystonia. Understanding the DBS system, proper patient selection, accurate lead placement, and optimized postoperative management are essential for successful outcomes. Each issue will be discussed, with an emphasis on practical information for clinicians. This course has been divided into two sequential sessions. Those registering for the course are encouraged to participate in both sessions for a comprehensive overview of the topic. Part I focuses on basic DBS principles and programming issues in movement disorders. Part II focuses on more advanced DBS issues in movement disorders and also highlight DBS in non-movement disorders conditions. These programs will include case-based discussions highlighting patient candidacy and management of DBS.
This program complements C241: Deep Brain Stimulation II: Advanced Management in Movement Disorders and Applications Beyond Movement Disorders, but covers independent topics.
Participants should be able to describe the rationale for the use of DBS and the patients for whom the treatment is most indicated and have a general understanding and appreciate the principles of initial DBS stimulator activation and programming.
