Abstract

Stereotactic ventralis lateralis thalamotomy can be performed in selected patients with medically intractable parkinsonian tremor and rigidity. New technology, including computed tomography-based stereotaxis and microelectrode recording techniques, provides a data base for precise localization of thalamic lesions tailored to each patient and thus reduces the risk associated with such a procedure. At our institution, 12 patients with medically intractable parkinsonian tremor have undergone this procedure; all experienced alleviation or cessation of the tremor and no permanent disabling neurologic sequelae.
