07 March 2014

HELSINKI, Finland—March 7, 2014--The latest edition of Nextalk, our European customer and partner newsletter, can now be read on this website. In this edition, we highlight the publication of the large study outcome study on NBS motor mapping performed by the Department of Neurosurgery, Technische Universität München, Germany (TUM). The study which showed that patients who had resections done after the adoption of NBS presurgical mapping had better motor outcomes and higher levels of tumor resection was published in Oxford Journals´ Neuro-Oncology. The preliminary study data were initially presented at the 5th International Symposium on Navigated Brain Stimulation in Neurosurgery in December 2013. Importantly, the Symposium heard that the results of this study are to be confirmed by a similar large-scale study from the Department of Neurosurgery, Charité University Hospital, Berlin.

Another headline topic is the news that navigated brain stimulation as a therapy significantly improved outcomes for stroke patients with upper limb paresis, when combined with occupational therapy. The study by Dr. Richard Harvey and a team at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) was presented at the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Stroke Association´s (ASA) International Stroke Conference in San Diego, CA this February. These and other advances in the clinical application of navigated TMS can be read and downloaded from the link provided.
