PMID-18037630[0] Bilateral stimulation in the caudal zona incerta nucleus for tremor control

  • VL DBS does not always work, and patients may develop tolerance; tried instead the caudal Zona Incerta (cZI).
    • VL ~= VIM (?) -- differing thalamic naming nomenclatures -- see {1100}.
    • VL does not always work for proximal tremor.
  • nice results! Resting PD tremor improved by 94.8% and postural tremor by 88.2%. The total tremor score improved by 75.9% in 6 patients with ET
    • Works for both distal and proximal tremor.
  • Original finding: PMID-18671648
  • nice figure therein.
