Title: (EN) Strain relieved lead routing in burr hole plug for deep brain stimulation
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

A method of performing a medical procedure comprises introducing a medical device through a cranial burr hole into the brain tissue, mounting a plug base around a cranial burr hole, securing the medical device within the aperture of the plug base, seating a proximal end of the medical device within a first groove of the plug base, such that the proximal end exits the aperture of the plug base through the first groove, looping the proximal end from the first groove to a second groove in the plug base, seating the proximal end within the second groove, such that the proximal end extends across the aperture of the plug base from the second groove, and seating the proximal end within a third groove of the plug base, such that the proximal end exits the plug base aperture through the third groove.
