Abstract

Thalamotomy is the stereotactic ablation of the ventral intermediate nucleus (Vim) of the thalamus for the treatment of tremor. Electrophysiological recording (typically microelectrode recording) is used for the refinement of localization. Essential tremor and parkinsonian tremor are particularly responsive to this procedure. Thalamotomy has largely been replaced by Vim-deep brain stimulation, which has been shown to be associated with lower risk.
