The main objective of this case study is to check the Deep brain stimulation. DBS is increasingly utilized to treat movement disorders, including Parkinson’s disease o PD, essential tremor or ET, and dystonia. An improved understanding of national trends in safety and cost is necessary. Herein, our objectives are to characterize complication, mortality, and cost profiles of patients undergoing DBS for movement disorders in the United States. Secondly, to identify predictors of morbidity and mortality. And thirdly, to evaluate the impact of complications on cost.

There were 44,866 weighted admissions. The number of procedures increased 2.22-fold from 2002 to 2014 (N = 2372 in 2002; N = 5260 in 2014). Increased DBS utilization for adult movement disorders in the United States from 2002 to 2014 was attributed to rapid adoption by teaching hospitals for PD. DBS remains a safe procedure with low overall complications and stable inpatient costs from 2002 to 2014. Complication risks vary by type of movement disorder, and although rare, multiple complications increase morbidity and cost of care. The researchers are still working to find new outcomes for this issue. They are studying all the new cases that are occurring now.
