Abstract:Brain pacemaker (BPM) systems are similar to cardiac pacemaker (CPM). On CPM, damage caused by ionizing radiation may lead to failure of the device. We report here a clinical situation of a patient treated with BPM and receiving cerebral radiotherapy. Strategies for protection of BPM from radiation damages are discussed.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
