Today, I has been 20 years since a new treatment using deep brain stimulation was successfully introduced in the Na Homolce Hospital. This was done in cooperation with the Department of Neurology of the 1st Medical School, Charles University, and General Teaching Hospital in Prague. This department presently continues to administer the Center for Intervention Therapy of Mobility Disorders (iTEMPO). On March 26, 1998, a stimulation electrode was implanted into the brain of a patient who suffered from essential tremor. The lifetime of a stimulation electrode (stimulator) is approximately 5 years. Since then, almost 300 patients have had stimulators placed or exchanged. Approximately 1000 stimulator implantations and subsequent re-implantations have been performed.
Cardiologists of the Na Homolce Hospital performed a unique surgery involving the implantation of micro-filters into both carotid arteries. This was done in an attempt to intercept possible thrombi. It is a stroke-preventive measure designed especially for patients with atrial fibrillation.
The Na Homolce Hospital is a world leader in the number of robot-assisted vascular procedures carried out in the field of vascular surgery.
