All of the studies being presented used the Medtronic DBS system
to stimulate a target within the brain called the ventral anterior limb of the internal capsule/ventral striatum (VC/VS), which is a central node in the neural circuits that regulate mood and anxiety.
The Vercise DBS System
is the only commercially available platform with the capability to generate stimulation pulses at the shorter pulse width settings.
This deal represents the first significant adoption of the DBS system
