Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) of the anterior nucleus of the thalamus (ANT) has been proposed in patients with severe intractable epilepsy. When used, the transventricular approach increases the risk of bleeding due the anatomy around the entry point in the thalamus. To avoid such a complication, the investigators used a transventricular microendoscopic technique.
