Objective: To review complications in deep brain stimulation (DBS) and to identify and manage DBS related problems.
Method: We present 11 cases-based review that can be encountered in DBS management among 161 DBS cases between
February 2000 and July 2008.
Results: We experienced 2 erosion cases, 3 infection cases, 3 dislocation cases, one electrode fracture, one malposition and one delayed hemorrhage. The rate of complication was decreased year after year. Overall rate is 6.83%.
Conclusion: The most common complications were related to the electrode connectors.Complication due to the hardware are not life-threatening but are expensive in economic terms and in terms of patient suffering. As experience is gained, novel ways of avoiding complications and treating patients with complications will be developed.
