Abstract
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an emerging therapeutic option for severe, treatment-resistant Tourette Syndrome (TS), with about 40 cases reported in the scientific literature over the last decade. Despite the production of clinical guidelines for this procedure from both European and USA centres, a number of unresolved issues still persist, mainly in relation to eligibility criteria and brain targets. The present article illustrates the UK perspective on DBS in TS and proposes consensus-based recommendations for double-blind controlled trials.
