The device, called a deep brain stimulation implant, is similar to a pacemaker, but for the brain. It involves the placement of a pulse generator that sends electrical signals to the parts of ...
The treatment gives patients targeted electrical impulses, much like a pacemaker for the brain. A growing body of recent research is promising, with more underway — although two large studies ...

Three years ago, at the age of 47, the fleet truck manager tore ligaments in his left arm and underwent surgery. While under anesthesia, he suffered a stroke. Three years ago, at the age of 47 ...
To treat essential tremor with deep brain stimulation, electrodes are placed in the thalamus during surgery. The electrodes are connected by wires to a type of pacemaker device (called an impulse ...
Although some studies have demonstrated that, given appropriate precautions, MRI can be safely performed in patients with selected implantable pacemakers, MRI in pacemaker patients is still ...
The Accent MRI pacemaker, with the Tendril MRI lead, is an MRI conditional system, offering safe performance of a full-body MRI scan on the patient using a 1.5 T (Tesla) field-strength MRI scanner.
THE NHS fits 18,000 pacemakers a year. Here, 67-year-old Joyce Underwood, who lives with her husband in Kibworth, near Leicester, tells us about her operation, and her cardiologist explains the ...
