Author information

  • 1Jaslok Hospital and Research Center, Mumbai, India.


Subthalamic nucleus stimulation is emerging as an effective surgical therapy for Parkinson's disease. It is considered to be a safe procedure with little morbidity, the most common complications being intracranial haemorrhage and hardware failure. We report on three cases of depression, one of whom attempted suicide after bilateral subthalamic nucleus stimulation.
