sup][6],[7],[8],[9],[10],[11] In this scenario, the main targeted brain regions for DBS include the anterior nucleus of thalamus (ANT), [sup][6] the entorhinal cortex (EC) [sup][12] and the fornix (FX), [sup][11] which are all parts of so-called Papez memory circuit.
The CE Mark approval was based on data collected in Medtronic's clinical trial called SANTE([R])(Stimulation of the Anterior Nucleus of the Thalamus in Epilepsy).
The implanted device, which bilaterally stimulates the anterior nucleus of the thalamus but does not sense or respond to EEG activity, will be turned on in some patients but not in others during the trial's double-blind phase.
Medtronic DBS Therapy for Epilepsy is investigational and uses a pacemaker-like device to deliver individualized, targeted and precise electrical stimulation to a specific target in the brain called the anterior nucleus of the thalamus, which is part of a circuit involved in seizures.
