Mapping of subthalamic nucleus using microelectrode recordings during deep brain stimulation.

ABSTRACT: Alongside stereotactic magnetic resonance imaging, microelectrode recording (MER) is frequently used during the deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery for optimal target localization. The aim of this study is to optimize subthalamic nucleus (STN) mapping using MER analytical patterns. 16 patients underwent bilateral STN-DBS. MER was performed simultaneously for 5 microelectrodes in a setting of Ben's-gun pattern in awake patients. Using spikes and background activity several different parameters and their spectral estimates in various frequency bands including low frequency (2-7 Hz), Alpha (8-12 Hz), Beta (sub-divided as Low_Beta (13-20 Hz) and High_Beta (21-30 Hz)) and Gamma (31 to 49 Hz) were computed. The optimal STN lead placement with the most optimal clinical effect/side-effect ratio accorded to the maximum spike rate in 85% of the implantation. Mean amplitude of background activity in the low beta frequency range was corresponding to right depth in 85% and right location in 94% of the implantation respectively. MER can be used for STN mapping and intraoperative decisions for the implantation of DBS electrode leads with a high accuracy. Spiking and background activity in the beta range are the most promising independent parameters for the delimitation of the proper anatomical site.
