Lead Location change

Recommended Posts

My dad had an infection after DBS battery replacement surgeon replaced the wire leading to the head. Could the wire replacement alter the lead location deep inside the brain? He has developed some tremors lately that is not responding to voltage increases from the programmer.

Sometimes during the changing of the connector wire a team can inadvertently tug on the wire in the brain and cause it to dislocate.  This can be checked with an image of the brain lead and this can be compared to a previous image.
