    Background: Increased neuronal activity in the subthalamic nucleus and the pars interna of the globus pallidus is thought to account for motor dysfunction in patients with Parkinson's disease. Although creating lesions in these structures improves motor function in monkeys with induced...

    The relationships between lesion location and clinical outcome following posteroventral pallidotomy for Parkinson's disease were studied. Forty-four patients were operated forty-six times and studied with neurological and psychological examinations before and after pallidotomy. Lesion location...

    Summary: Fifteen years after its resurrection, pallidotomy for Parkinson’s disease (PD) and dystonia has once again been supplanted, this time by deep brain stimulation (DBS). Did this occur because pallidotomy was not effective or safe, or because DBS was found to be more effective and...

    Background: Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) is a neurodegenerative disease due to mitochondrial dysfunction. The PSP syndrome presents generally with gait disorder, Parkinsonism, ophthalmoparesis and cognitive alteration. Few reports exist on deep brain stimulation (DBS) in patients with...

    One of the main indications for stereotactic surgery in Parkinson's disease (PD) is the control of levodopa-induced dyskinesia. This can be achieved by pallidotomy and globus pallidus internus (GPi) deep brain stimulation (DBS) or by subthalamotomy and subthalamic nucleus (STN) DBS, which...

    The clinical signs grouped under the concept of apathy are a common feature of prefrontal and basal ganglia lesions or dysfunctions and can therefore help to improve our understanding of the functional anatomy of the prefrontal–basal ganglia system. Apathy is here defined as a...

    The aim of this work was to study the role of subthalamo-pallidal synchronisation in the pathophysiology of dyskinesias. We recorded local field potentials (LFPs) in a patient with Parkinson's disease and left surgery induced dyskinesias with double, bilateral deep brain stimulation electrode...

    The article discusses the effectiveness of deep brain stimulation (DBS) in treating Parkinson-hyperpyrexia syndrome (PHS) in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). It cites the case of a 59-year-old man, who has PD since 22 years old, presented for globus pallidus interna (GPi) DBS surgery. It...

    Patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) commonly exhibit difficulties performing simultaneous tasks and levodopa has been shown to improve the performance of these movements to a greater extent than movements performed in isolation. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of acute...
