AbstractDeep brain stimulation has become an increasingly common treatment for Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. Consequently, it is important to understand the concepts of appropriate patient selection, the implantation process, and the various drugs and techniques that can be used to facilitate this treatment. Currently, none of the anaesthetic techniques for neurostimulator implantation has proven to be superior to others, although awake or sedation techniques are popular as they facilitate intraoperative neurological testing. However, even with meticulous anaesthetic care, perioperative complications such as hypertension and seizures do occasionally occur and close monitoring is required. Anaesthesia in patients with an implanted neurostimulator requires special considerations because of possible interference between neurostimulators and other devices. We have reviewed the current knowledge of anaesthetic techniques and perioperative complications of neurostimulator insertion. Anaesthetic considerations in patients with an implanted neurostimulator are also discussed. © The Author [2009].
