In addition to following any adverse events associated with the therapy, the study will further evaluate improvements seen in OCD symptoms as assessed by the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS), before deep brain stimulation to 12 months after.

This study will be important in reinforcing the evidence base of DBS in the treatment of psychiatric conditions."

European centres first pioneered the technique of deep brain stimulation and the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium was a leading contributor to the clinical evidence which was used to obtain CE mark approval in Europe as well as FDA approval in the United States (obtained in February 2009 through a humanitarian device exemption).
