Project Description

Brain battery “Deep brain stimulation “

Brain battery or (DBS) is a surgery to implant a device that sends electrical signals to brain areas responsible for body movement. Electrodes are placed deep in the brain and are connected to a stimulator device. Similar to a heart pacemaker, a neurostimulator uses electric pulses to regulate brain activity. DBS can help reduce the symptoms of tremor, slowness, stiffness, and walking problems caused by Parkinson’s disease,  epilepsy , or essential tremor. Successful DBS allows people to potentially reduce their medications and improve their quality of life.

Parkinson Disease:

Parkinson’s disease (PD) belongs to a group of conditions called motor system disorders, which cause unintended or uncontrollable movements of the body.  The precise cause of PD is unknown, but some cases are hereditary while others are thought to occur from a combination of genetics and environmental factors that trigger the disease.  In PD, brain cells become damaged or die in the part of the brain that produces dopamine–a chemical needed to produce smooth, purposeful movement.

Exercise is also just as important

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words

The four primary symptoms of PD are:

  • tremor–shaking that has a characteristic rhythmic back and forth motion

  •  rigidity–muscle stiffness or a resistance to movement, where muscles remain constantly tense and contracted

  •  bradykinesia–slowing of spontaneous and automatic movement that can make it difficult to perform simple tasks or rapidly perform routine movements

  • postural instability–impaired balance and changes in posture that can increase the risk of falls

  • Praesent bibendum felis nec turpis fringilla suscipit.

Other symptoms may include difficulty swallowing, chewing, or speaking; emotional changes; urinary problems or constipation; dementia or other cognitive problems; fatigue; and problems sleeping.

 One of the main uses of Brain battery “Deep brain stimulation “ is to treat symptoms of Parkinson disease. It can help when medicines become less effective, or when movement problems or side effects worsen.

DBS surgery is performed by a neurosurgeon who has specialized training in functional neurosurgery. The surgical team also includes a neurologist.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a chronic noncommunicable disease of the brain and according to WHO it affects around 50 million people worldwide.

It is characterized by recurrent seizures, which are brief episodes of involuntary movement that may involve a part of the body (partial) or the entire body (generalized) and are sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness and control of bowel or bladder function.

 Deep brain stimulation (DBS) therapy may be used for people whose epilepsy is difficult to treat, and who cannot have epilepsy surgery to separate or remove the part of the brain that causes seizures to happen. So DBS therapy aims to reduce seizures but not necessarily to cure epilepsy.

DBS therapy involves implanting electrodes into specific areas of the brain, and then stimulating these areas with small regular electrical impulses

 The neurosurgeon will implant the following parts of “DBS system” under your skin:

  •  Very thin wires called leads, which deliver electrical signals from the neurostimulator to the brain
  • The neurostimulator, also sometimes called a “battery” or “device,” which creates the electrical pulses that help control seizures

 Your doctor will give you instructions about preparing for your surgery, including instructions for medications, eating or drinking before surgery, and how long they anticipate you will be staying in the hospital.

 A typical hospital stay for DBS surgery is one night, sometimes more.

Excise the tumors:

Tumor resection surgery can be used:

  1.  Before chemotherapy or radiation: a surgeon might recommend surgical tumor resection before chemotherapy or radiation treatment so there is a smaller area to treat.
  2.  After chemotherapy or radiation. If the tumor is deeply embedded in critical tissues or structures in the body
  3. As the only treatment. When the tumor hasn’t spread from its original location, the surgeon can sometimes remove the entire tumor and additional treatment isn’t necessary

 

Brain tumors:

Brain tumors are abnormal growths in the brain, for which the main treatment is often tumor resection.

Brain tumor surgery is conducted to remove this abnormal growth from the brain.

. At WOX CLINIC, patients receive specialized and coordinated care from our world-class neurosurgeons who perform, on average, 200 to 350 brain tumor resections each year.

  •  Brain tumors can be surgically resected several different ways, and the recommended approach often depends on tumor type, location and size, in addition to several other factors.
  •  Brain tumor surgery is usually performed after a brain tumor is found on an imaging scan.
  • For certain tumors that are small and asymptomatic, close observation may be recommended without further intervention, but for most brain tumors, including pediatric brain tumors, the first step in treatment is surgery to remove the tumor.
  • Surgeons resect as much of a tumor as possible while preserving brain tissue and overall function.
  • Our highly skilled neurosurgeons remove as much tumor as possible while maintaining brain function.

Spinal cord tumors:

 The spinal cord, which lies protected inside the spine, contains bundles of nerves that transmit messages between the brain and the nerves throughout the body.

 A tumor on or near the spinal cord can disrupt this communication or impair function.

These primary tumors usually are noncancerous (benign) and even the cancerous ones rarely spread to other parts of the body.

Most cancerous spinal cord tumors are secondary, meaning they spread from a cancer at another site of the body.

Doctors divide spinal cord tumors into three major groups based on their location (Extradural tumors, Intradural-extramedullary tumors, Intramedullary tumors)

 Surgery usually is recommended for noncancerous and cancerous primary spinal cord tumors

it is usually successful for tumors located outside the spinal cord. However, other tumors may be impossible to remove without significantly damaging the spinal cord.

In those cases, radiation therapy may be used to slow the tumor’s growth.

Surgical removal of surrounding vertebrae can also help to relieve pain and other symptoms by reducing pressure on the spinal nerves. Chemotherapy may be recommended for certain types of tumors, usually after surgical treatment.
