    damage With regards to the study described above if VNS can significantly reduce the neuronal death microglial and astrocyte activations and IL 1β and TNF α in the hippocampus of VNS group compared with the KA group the neuroprotective efficacy of VNS in the hippocampus will be confirmed If the neuroprotective efficacy of VNS in the hippocampus is confirmed VNS and EA at specific acupoints have both shown promising anticonvulsant effects in intractable epilepsy patients The differences between these therapies are target selection and stimulation parameter modulation http www ncbi nlm nih gov pubmed 24176140 Comments reviewer Prof Van Nieuwenhuizen In this paper the hypothesis is put forward that VNS protects hippocampal neurons against seizure induced damage This hypothesis is based on the finding of significant protection of hippocampal neurons in animal experiments with EA This protection is assumed to be produced by inhibiting the expression of IL 1β and TNF α in the hippocampus of KA kainic acid induced rats As VNS and electroacupuncture have the same target vagal nerve VNS is assumed to protect against neuronal hippocampal damage as well A study design is proposed for a controlled animal rat study One month after VNS implantation neuronal cell survival activations of microglia and astrocytes and mRNA expressions of IL 1β and TNF α are measured in the hippocampus This way the neuroprotective efficacy of VNS in the hippocampus can be confirmed VNS publications overview Deze pagina delen Print deze pagina Professionals Voor iedereen die werkt met of voor mensen met epilepsie Forum Forum EpilepsiePlus Activiteiten Professionals Medische zorg Publicaties niet medicamenteuze behandelingen Nervus Vagus Stimulatie VNS Vagus nerve stimulation for drug resistant epilepsy Treatment of epilepsy by stimulation of the vagus nerve from Head and Neck surgical point of view Vagus nerve stimulation magnet activation for seizures The
