OBJECT The effects of thalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS) on essential tremor (ET) and Parkinson disease (PD) have been well documented, but there is a paucity of long-term data. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of DBS of the ventralis intermedius nucleus (VIM) of the thalamus for PD and ET. METHODS Thirty-eight of(More)
We assessed the long-term effect of thalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS) on motor symptoms and progression of Parkinson's disease (PD) in PD patients treated for resting and postural/action tremor. Thalamic DBS was performed in 17 patients with treatment-resistant resting and postural/action tremor. Nine patients were available for follow-up examination a(More)
A 59-year-old woman with levodopa-responsive parkinsonism complicated by motor fluctuations and generalized levodopa dyskinesia underwent bilateral subthalamic deep brain stimulation (STN DBS) 7 years after symptom onset. DBS improved levodopa-responsive upper extremity bradykinesia but aggravated speech, swallowing, and gait. Motor fluctuations were not(More)
