DBS Directional lead infinity

Surprisingly we are not able to achieve the expected result from DBS surgery and even if we get the result we were not able to sustain the outcome for a day or two.

First, I am very sorry for the delay in response to your question.  The system underwent an upgrade and the software change captured some questions which we have now located. Please accept our sincerest apology.

There are many reasons for potential DBS failure and one thing that you said caught my attention.  You get benefit and it is not sustained. Sometimes this is an issue of suboptimal lead placement and this can be worked up with imaging as well as programming for thresholds for benefits and side effects at each lead.....an experienced programmer can help.

Dear Doctor,

Does this mean that even if one of the leads' is suboptimal this can be minimized in the hands of a good programmer?
