Abstract
Objective
To implant the DBS lead, while considering burr hole placement, place a 14mm diameter burr hole in the desired location. To anchor the lead, use the burr hole cap and ring packaged with the lead. In the usual anchoring method, the cap area showed as a bulge. From a cosmetic point of view for DBS operative women, the appearance of this bulge was not acceptable. Material and Methods: We performed 288 DBS operations over the last 10 years. Of those operations 60 utilized outer table drilling and burr hole cap stabilization.
Results
All patients showed no elevated the burr hole cap sites. No individuals complained of operation site pain.
Conclusion
For women or bald-headed individual, skull outer table drilling and cap stabilization is a very effective method for DBS lead fixation.
