With the ageing of the population and expanding use of deep brain stimulation in the treatment of various neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions, there will be an increasing number of patients with these devices who present with cardiac conditions necessitating electrophysiology studies (EPS). However, neurostimulator devices have been shown to cause significant artifacts on electrocardiography recordings. We present the case of a 53-year-old Parkinsonian woman with a brain neurostimulator device who underwent a successful EPS with radiofrequency ablation.
