      Current Concepts in Movement Disorder Management

      by Niranjan, A., Lunsford, L.D., Lunsford, L.D., Richardson, R.M.

      This book summarizes the current state of movement disorder management and the role of surgical therapies as an alternative to medication. Following a chapter on the history of movement disorder surgery, leaders in their fields describe the pathophysiology, functional neuroanatomy, clinical presentation, and medical management of Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, and essential tremor. This is followed by chapters on the spectrum of movement disorder surgery itself, from the lesioning procedures of radiofrequency ablation, stereotactic radiosurgery, and high-frequency ultrasound to the modulatory procedures of “asleep”, image-guided deep brain stimulation (DBS) and “awake”, microelectrode-guided DBS. The final chapters focus on closed-loop DBS, drug-delivery, gene therapy, and other emerging neurosurgical therapies, highlighting long-standing experimental strategies that are reaching exciting phases of clinical translation. This volume is a valuable tool for accessing the wide spectrum of concepts that currently define this dynamic field.

      Tiefe Hirnstimulation

      Grundlagen, Indikationen, Verfahren

      by Jürgen Voges, Lars Timmermann

      Dieses Buch bietet eine fundierte, praxisorientierte Darstellung der Tiefen Hirnstimulation, die sich in den vergangenen Jahren bei Patienten mit neurologischen Störungen wie Morbus Parkinson, Dystonie oder Tremor bewährt hat. Mit der THS können je nach behandelter Gehirnregion bestimmte Symptome der Krankheit (z.B. Zittern, Bewegungs-, Gleichgewichtsstörungen, Muskelsteifheit) gelindert werden und die Lebensqualität des Patienten über Jahre hinaus deutlich verbessert werden.Bei dem Verfahren werden operativ Elektroden in die erkrankte Hirnregion und ein individuell programmierbarer Impulsgeber unter die Haut implantiert, um so die gestörten, überaktiven Gehirnareale durch elektrische Stimulation zu hemmen. Die Planung und Durchführung der Operation, inklusive Bildgebung, Zielpunktberechnung, Trajektorienplanung und Implantation, sind Schwerpunkt des Buches. Daneben werden ausführlich die verschiedenen THS-Systeme und ihre Wirkweise, Indikationsstellung inklusive präoperativer Evaluierung, intraoperatives Monitoring, Komplikationen (OP- und THS-assoziiert) sowie postoperative Betreuung beschrieben. Abgerundet wird das Buch durch eine Kosten-Nutzenanalyse der THS und Ausblick auf neue Indikationen wir Depression und Suchterkrankungen. Das Herausgeberteam, bestehend aus einem Neurochirurgen und einem Neurologen, repräsentiert den interdisziplinären Charakter der Behandlung von THS-Patienten.
