About

The purpose of this study is to document patient outcomes, including effectiveness, safety, and health economic data, for the Boston Scientific implantable deep brain stimulation (DBS) Vercise™ system for bilateral stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) in the treatment of moderate to severe idiopathic Parkinson's Disease (PD).

Full description

This is a multi-center, prospective, open label, non-randomized study which will use a within-patient control (each patient serves as his/her own control) to document patient outcomes, including effectiveness, safety, and health economic data for the Boston Scientific implantable deep brain stimulation (DBS) Vercise™ system for bilateral stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) in the treatment of moderate to severe idiopathic Parkinson's Disease (PD).

Inclusion and exclusion criteria

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of bilateral idiopathic PD with the presence of at least 2 of the following: resting tremor, rigidity, or bradykinesia.
  • Duration of bilateral idiopathic PD of more than five years.
  • Stable medications
  • UPDRS subset III score of ≥30 without medication.
  • Lack of dementia or depression.
  • Must improve with antiparkinsonian medication, but have some motor complications that are not well controlled by medications.
  • Must be an appropriate candidate for the surgical procedures required for bilateral STN DBS.
  • Is willing and able to comply with all visits and study related procedures
  • Patient understands the study requirements and the treatment procedures and provides written informed consent before any study-specific tests or procedures are performed.

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any intracranial abnormality or medical condition that would contraindicate DBS surgery.
  • Any finding in neuropsychological screening assessments that would contraindicate DBS surgery, including dementia.
  • Any significant psychiatric problems, including unrelated clinically significant depression.
  • Any current drug or alcohol abuse.
  • Any history of recurrent or unprovoked seizures.
  • Frequent falls while receiving good medication therapy without dyskinesias (on-state).
  • Any prior movement disorder treatments that involved intracranial surgery or device implantation.
  • Any other active implanted device.
  • Any previous brain surgery that would interfere with the placement of the leads or the functioning of the device.
  • A history of neurostimulation intolerance in any area of the body.
  • A condition requiring or likely to require the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or diathermy.
  • Currently on any anticoagulant medications that can not be discontinued during perioperative period.
  • Have any significant medical condition that is likely to interfere with study procedures or likely to confound evaluation of study endpoints, including any terminal illness with survival <12 months.
  • Participation in another drug, device, or biologics trial concurrently or within the preceding 30 days. Any other trial participation should be approved by the Principal Investigators.
  • A female that is breastfeeding or of child bearing potential with a positive urine pregnancy test or not using adequate contraception.
