Neuropsychological functioning following bilateral subthalamic nucleus stimulation in Parkinson's disease.
The cognitive effects of subthalamic nucleus (STN) stimulation in Parkinson's disease (PD) have been examined. However, there are no reported studies that evaluate, by incorporating a disease controlExpand

Surgical maneuvers placing the sciatic nerve at risk during total hip arthroplasty as assessed by somatosensory evoked potential monitoring.
The sciatic nerve in 52 hip arthroplasties was evaluated using intraoperative somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs). Twenty-nine of these cases involved the lateral transtrochanteric approach, andExpand

Central dysesthesia syndrome in spinal cord injury patients
&NA; We have described 13 spinal cord injury patients with a complaint of diffuse, ongoing dysesthesias below the level of the lesion, which are burning in quality, and usually functionally limiting.Expand

Neurophysiological properties of pallidal neurons in Parkinson's disease
Neuronal properties of the human globus pallidus (GP) are not known. Since GP is the major output of the basal ganglia, it may be involved in the pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease. We studied 12Expand
