Functional surgery for movement disorders is a recent stereotactic neurosurgical operation, restricted yet to patients with advanced Parkinson's disease or with generalized primary dystonia. One or two electrodes are implanted in the basal ganglia, namely in the globus pallidus pars interna or in the subthalamic nucleus, to realize a deep brain stimulation at high frequency. While this approach needs additional data to demonstrate clinical benefits, first results observed after short and long-term follow up are encouraging. Perioperative problems in patients with Parkinson's disease are possible respiratory disorders, a postoperative miss in medication doses and potential drug interactions with anaesthesia. The objectives of anaesthesia will be to allow stereotactic neurosurgical procedure, to maintain the upper airway patency and to be quickly reversible.
