Motor and cognitive sequelae of unilateral pallidotomy in intractable Parkinson's Disease: electronic measurement of motor steadiness is a useful outcome measure.

Abstract

This study examined the short-term motor and cognitive sequelae of unilateral posterolateral pallidotomy for patients with intractable Parkinson's Disease (PD). Unique to this study was the inclusion of electronic motor steadiness instrumentation among pre- and postsurgical assessment procedures. Fifteen PD patients underwent right-sided surgery and 10… (More)
