One hundred stereotactic thalamotomies performed for upper extremity tremor were reviewed and the spatial positions of the anterior limit of ventralis posterior (VP), the thalamic-internal capsular boundary and somatotopic areas within VP plotted with respect to the midline and the place of the anterior comissure. Considerable variability was noted as to the location of these points. The surgical results following 97 of the 100 thalamotomies were evaluated at least three months after the… CONTINUE READING
