Detailed Study Description

In this study the efficacy and safety of pallidal Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) in HD patients shall be investigated and superiority of DBS on motor function in the stimulation group compared to the stimulation-off group shall be shown. This study is a prospective, randomised, double blind, parallel group, sham-controlled, multi-centre trial. Patients in the stimulation group will be stimulated for three months while the stimulator in the sham-group will be turned off for three months.
