Boston Scientific has received CE mark for the Vercise Gevia Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) System, a rechargeable, magnetic resonance (MR) conditional device indicated for the treatment of movement disorder symptoms in patients with Parkinson's disease, dystonia and essential tremor. The system features the Vercise Neural Navigator 2 with STIMVIEW Technology, programming software which, for the first time, allows clinicians to visualize the stimulation field while configuring DBS stimulation programs for patients.

DBS therapy involves the placement of a device that stimulates specific areas in the brain using electrical signals. The Vercise Gevia System is a next generation rechargeable platform with an unparalleled 25-year battery life.

The approval expands the Vercise Directional portfolio which is composed of the Vercise Primary Cell (PC) and Vercise Gevia platforms with Vercise Cartesia Directional Lead. The Vercise Directional offerings are the only DBS solutions that finely control the size, shape and direction of stimulation with multiple independent current control technology (MICC). This level of precision in delivering accurate stimulation therapy to the neural target is critical for avoiding unwanted side effects and obtaining optimal DBS outcomes.
