Posteroventral medial pallidotomy in advanced Parkinson's disease.
BACKGROUND Posteroventral medial pallidotomy sometimes produces striking improvement in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease, but the studies to date have involved small numbers of patients andExpand

Methods for microelectrode-guided posteroventral pallidotomy.
Methods for localizing the posteroventral globus pallidus intermus are described. The authors' techniques include the use of microelectrodes to record single-unit activity and to microstimulate inExpand

Single unit analysis of the human ventral thalamic nuclear group. Tremor-related activity in functionally identified cells.
During procedures for parkinsonian tremor, neurons in the thalamic ventral nuclear group show periodic activity at tremor frequency (tremor-frequency activity). The tremor-frequency activity of someExpand

Spontaneous incarcerated herniation of the spinal cord into a vertebral body: a unique cause of paraplegia. Case report.
✓ A case of progressive paraparesis is reported in which the normal spinal cord herniated through a defect in the ventral meninges and dura and became incarcerated in a cavity in the dorsal aspect ofExpand

Abnormal single-unit activity recorded in the somatosensory thalamus of a quadriplegic patient with central pain
We have performed single unit analysis of the activity of cells located in the ventral nuclear group of thalamus in a patient with dysesthetic pain below the level of a clinically complete traumaticExpand

Functional magnetic resonance imaging: a potential tool for the evaluation of spinal cord stimulation: technical case report.
OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE The management of chronic pain of spinal origin continues to represent a challenge for neurosurgeons. Spinal cord stimulation for chronic intractable pain is an effectiveExpand

Percutaneous Radiofrequency Facet Rhizotomy – Experience with 118 Procedures and Reappraisal of its Value
ABSTRACT: Background: There have been many reports of percutaneous radiofrequency facet rhizotomy, perhaps better referred to as facet denervation, usually performed under general anaesthesia, withExpand

Characteristics of the bursting pattern of action potentials that occurs in the thalamus of patients with central pain
Neurons in the somatosensory thalamus of patients with central pain following spinal cord injury fire in bursts of action potentials more frequently than do similar neurons in patients without pain.Expand

Single unit analysis of the human ventral thalamic nuclear group: correlation of thalamic "tremor cells" with the 3-6 Hz component of parkinsonian tremor
Although cells firing at tremor frequency, called “tremor cells” (Guiot et al., 1962), have often been recorded in the thalamus of parkinsonian patients, the extent of correlation between these spikeExpand
