Metabolic Changes Induced by Electrical Stimulation of Prelemniscal Radiations for the Treatment of Parkinson Disease.

OBJECTIVE The aim of this work was to study mechanisms of action of electrical stimulation of prelemniscal radiations (Raprl) in the treatment of Parkinson disease, using 2-deoxy-2-fluoro-D-glucose (18F-FDG) Positron Emission Tomography (PET/CT). Materialand Methods: Five patients with PD and predominant unilateral tremor, rigidity and bradykinesia… CONTINUE READING
