Our experience of deep brain stimulation (DBS) and motor cortex stimulation (MCS) in patients with post-stroke movement disorders and post-stroke pain is reviewed. DBS of the thalamic nuclei ventralis oralis posterior et intermedius proved to be useful in more than 70% of patients with post-stroke involuntary movements (hemiballismus, hemichoreo-athetosis, distal resting and/or action tremor, and proximal postural tremor). The effect of DBS of the thalamic nucleus ventralis caudalis or internal… CONTINUE READING
