Tiefe hirnstimulation als mögliche alternative bei therapieresistenten depressionen

Translated title of the contribution: Deep brain stimulation as possible alternative for therapy resistant depression

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

There are many fearful prejudices and misunderstandings on the method of deep brain stimulation (DBS), especially in its application to neuropsychiatric diseases. Using the example of the treatment of resistant depression this article will discuss the current state of DBS in an attempt to overcome some of the prejudices and to elaborate on its potential development. The DBS is a straightforward method and has been used clinically for more than 12 years to treat some neurological diseases, such as tremor in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. More than 100,000 patients have already been treated worldwide using DBS which is a procedure in which electrodes are placed bilaterally in certain brain regions where they can modulate disease-related dysfunctions.
