BACKGROUND Pallidal deep brain stimulation (GPi-DBS) effectively ameliorates idiopathic dystonia, although approximately 15% of patients respond insufficiently. Although various thalamic and subthalamic targets have been suggested for dystonic tremor, no systematic studies have been published on thalamic DBS in dystonic tremor. We assessed the effect of thalamic/subthalamic area DBS (Th-DBS) on dystonic head tremor and dystonia in a single-blind design. METHODS Dystonic head tremor and… CONTINUE READING
