      Parkinson’s disease is a tremor that occurs in the hand or part of the body and usually occurs in older ages. It occurs when the substance called dopamine decreases in the brain. In some cases, individuals may experience side effects and decreased drug effects due to the medications given. In this case, Deep Brain Stimulation Operation, which is an interventional treatment, is recommended.

      Deep brain stimulation is the stimulation of some parts of the brain with batteries and electrodes. This operation, which is performed in two stages, first begins under local anesthesia and continues with general anesthesia.

      WHO ARE THE ELIGIBLE CANDIDATES FOR DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION OPERATION?

      Deep brain stimulation can be used in Parkinson’s disease, tremor, and dystonia, which causes involuntary contractions. However, it is especially applied to Parkinson’s patients.

      If individuals have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease for 5 years or more, Parkinson’s patients whose drug treatment is insufficient and whose drug dose cannot be increased due to the onset of drug side effects are deemed suitable for this operation after the necessary examinations.

      HOW IS DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION OPERATION PERFORMED?

      It is the process of stimulating certain parts of the brain with the help of electrodes and batteries. The first stage of this two-stage procedure begins with local anesthesia and the second stage continues with general anesthesia. This process takes between 5 and 6 hours.

      • PREPARATION

      It is important for individuals diagnosed with Parkinson’s to first undergo a physical examination. The operation is planned according to the physical examination. After planning the operation, patients undergo preoperative tests such as learning of patient’s medical record, blood tests, chest X-ray, computed tomography (CT Scan), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ECG (Electrocardiography), neurologist, psychiatrist and anesthesiologist consultation.

      The decision to perform the operation is made by the neurologist and psychiatrist.

      According to the patient’s medical record, surgeon may ask for additional tests and examinations from different branches.

      The main aims of pre-operative examinations are evaluate the patient’s risk and maintain patient’s health condition.

      • ANESTHESIA

      The general anesthesia which is numbing the whole body and put patient to sleep and local anesthesia which is numbing the area where the procedure will be performed are preffered for this operation.

      • DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION OPERATION TECHNIQUE

      In this operation, which consists of two stages, first local anesthesia is applied to the patient’s head. At this stage, a frame is placed on the patient’s head through the 2 small incisions and magnetic resonance imaging is performed. Electrodes are placed on the patient’s head on the right and left sides and stimulation is started. In this way, muscle stiffness and tremors in the area to be stimulated are monitored. After the necessary procedures at this stage are completed, the second stage is started.

      In the second stage, the patient is put to sleep with general anesthesia. The implanted battery is connected to the electrodes and thin cables are placed in the nuclei of the brain. Batteries are usually fixed to the abdomen or chest area and these batteries provide continuous electrical stimulation.

      It is given postoperatively after the surgical procedures are completed.

      RECOVERY FROM DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION OPERATION IN TURKEY

      Patients were in intensive care for 1 night after the surgery; they stay in the hospital for 2 and 3 days, staying in a normal room. Patients’ brain batteries are adjusted before discharge. Individuals with brain pacemakers are given a badge and it is very important that they carry this badge on them. Individuals with a brain pacemaker must inform their doctors during any medical examination or planning any surgery.

      Brain batteries last between 5 and 6 years. Batteries that have completed these years are replaced by doctors within 15 minutes as an outpatient.

      POST-OPRETIVE KEY POINTS OF DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION OPERATION

      • Avoiding from heat treatments used in physical therapy

      • Avoid areas where electric generators and large magnets are used

      • Individuals should stay away from areas where radio, television transmitters, high frequencies are located, and radar applications are available

      • It is important to inform doctors in case of planning surgery

      • In case of magnetic resonance imaging, doctors should be informed in advance

      • It is important for individuals to stay away from heavy sports and activities

      BENEFITS OF DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION OPERATION IN TURKEY

      Individuals stop taking medications that cause side effects and decrease in effectiveness. Brain pacemakers do not cause brain or tissue damage. Batteries can be controlled by remote control and adjusted according to the course of the disease. After completing the battery life, which is generally between 5 and 6 years, it can be replaced by a doctor in a 15-minute procedure. If a rechargeable battery is used, the life of this battery is between 15 and 20 years.

      After this operation, the disease is not completely eliminated, but the symptoms are returned to the beginning of the disease and the progression of the disease is kept under control. In this way, individuals who are disconnected from their daily activities and work can return to their normal lives. Once their symptoms are controlled, individuals can continue their lives on their own, without needing anyone.
