Open label, non-comparative, prospective study to evaluate cognitive functioning in remitted depression outpatients during long-term preventive treatment with Fluvoxamine (Fevarin®)
Major depressive disorders are real public health issues in terms of diagnosis and treatment. Some forms of depression are chronic and resistant to treatment (TRD). In these forms suicide risk is important. Patients with TRD are potential candidates for neurosurgical interventions to treat depression. However, psychosurgery interventions based upon lesions, showed their limitations related to 1. the large variability in neurosurgical gestures, 2. their side effects, and of course 3. the irreversible damage caused by the surgery. Thus, deep brain stimulation (DBS) could represent an opportunity for patients suffering from TRD. Our preliminary study based upon the stimulation of the accumbens nucleus showed encouraging results. The investigators have thus planned a randomized controlled trial versus sham stimulation to confirm the therapeutic value of nucleus accumbens DBS.
