- •DBS can produce prolonged clinical relief outlasting stimulation.
- •This can be the case in a life threatening genetic condition.
- •Despite clinical stability electrophysiological instability occurs when DBS is stopped.
- •Clinic/electrophysiology discrepancy might indicate temporary stability.
- •This should alert clinicians to perform close follow-ups.
