Deep Brain Stimulation Devices Market By Modality (Subthalamic Nucleus (STN) DBS, Globus Pallidus Interna (GPi) DBS, Thalamus (Vim) DBS), By Application (Parkinson's Disease, Epilepsy, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Dystonia, Essential Tremors) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

Across the world, deep brain stimulation (DBS) is being used for treating pain and movement disorders such as tremors and Parkinson’s disease. Some other recognized conditions for deep brain stimulation include epilepsy, obsessive compulsive disorders and dystonia. There are other conditions such as Tourette syndrome, bipolar disorder, auditory disorders, tinnitus and others, which are investigational for DBS therapy. Particularly about DBS for psychiatric disorders, the subcommittee of the World Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery had published consensus on Guidelines for Stereotactic Neurosurgery for Psychiatric Disorders. This suggested that DBS for psychiatric disorders is investigational and the procedures need to be done based on scientific protocol, by multidisciplinary team and with regulatory and ethical oversight. Over a million patients have been treated with DBS worldwide and the potential patient population is still growing. Furthermore, as there is no inaccessible area in the brain, the limit as to where the electrodes can be applied is nonexistent. Therefore, there is no limit to the diseases treatable with DBS. This in turn, has raised certain ethical issues, particularly with respect to neuroethics concerning alteration of central nervous system circuitry. Hence, the ethical front of the application of DBS should be determined on the basis of the current social philosophy.

"Subthalamic Nucleus to Remain the Commonly Used Target for DBS"

DBS of the brain thalamus was first approved by the USFDA for tremors in 1997. Afterwards, DBS for subthalamic nucleus (STN) and globus pallidus interna (GPi) for Parkinson’s disease were approved in 2002 and 2003 respectively. The GPi DBS gained further approval for dystonia treatment under humanitarian device exemption in 2003. At present GPi and STN are the prominent viable targets for DBS. The choice of site mainly focuses on the type of motor and non-motor symptoms, being the key determinants of quality of life. The STN is the most commonly used target for DBS for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. The STN is a prime location in the basal ganglia circuits therefore serve as a major target for cortical afferents and receive inputs from other parts of the basal ganglia. About half of the DBS treatments for Parkinson’s disease are performed on the STN target. STN DBS offers very effective therapy for certain motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease such as stiffness, tremors and bradykinesia, therefore gaining high popularity in the market. on the other hand, dystonia patients often opt for GPi DBS, as it offers significant remission of painful cramping and posturing. GPi DNS is also effective for relieving motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

"Proven Benefits and Efficacy of DBS in Parkinson’s Disease to Remain the Mainstay for Market Growth"

Following the success of DBS in treating Parkinson’s disease, DBS surgery has revamped the interest in neurological management of psychiatric disorders. Based on this DBS received FDA approval for treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder on humanitarian device exemption status. Other conditions in which DBS therapy is shown to have benefits include epilepsy, neuropathic pain, post-stroke pain, depression, cluster headache, multiple sclerosis tremors and so on. DBS surgery is also being investigated for addictions, traumatic brain injury, eating disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorders. At present DBS application for Parkinson’s disease treatment dominates the global market. Proven clinical evidence and early bird advantage are the key factors assisting the prominence of DBS for Parkinson’s disease segment. DBS has gradually become the procedure of choice for Parkinson’s disease treatment as it does not involve destruction of the brain tissue, adjustable and can be reversed. GPi and STN are the preferred targets for DBS for Parkinson’s disease. However, reports suggest that Vim can also be used in cases of primary symptoms of tremors.
