Robotic Orthogonal Implantation of Responsive Neurostimulation (RNS)

February 25, 2020

"Responsive neurostimulation (RNS) is a closed-loop neurostimulation modality for treating intractable epilepsy in patients who are not candidates for resection. In the past, implantation of depth electrodes was done through a transoccipital approach that transverses the hippocampus. There have been no descriptions of orthogonal approaches to RNS electrode placement."

A huge thanks to Dr. Alvin Chan, MD., Diem Kieu Tran, MD., and Dr. Sumeet Vadera, MD. for working with me on this very exciting project.
