"Tremor is an involuntary movement characterized by a rhythmic oscillation about a fixed point or trajectory. It can be classified based on its clinical features or underlying cause. Tremor was the first approved indication for DBS in the U.S. We now have almost three decades of experience of tremor treatment with DBS. Essential tremor (ET) is the most frequent movement disorder occurring at a frequency of about 5 times that of PD. ET commonly has an autosomal dominant transmission pattern with incomplete penetrance, therefore sporadic cases are not at all uncommon. In ET, most patients suffer from tremor of the hands and arms; approximately 40% suffer from head and 20% from voice tremor. The majority of candidates for functional neurosurgery belong to the ET subgroup which is commonly characterized by severe action or postural tremor that impairs function and quality of life to the extent that the risks, costs and inconvenience of DBS treatment are justified. Unilateral procedures (targeting the thalamus contralateral to the dominant and/or most affected hand) are commonly performed, though bilateral procedures should be considered when limb tremor is severe bilaterally, or when head, voice, or trunk tremors cause significant disability"--

Twenty Things to Know About Deep Brain Stimulation is an extensive and in-depth critical analysis of the field of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) from what many may consider a revolutionary perspective. This book demonstrates the unique nature and incredible promise of DBS and shows how it is unparalleled as a therapeutic intervention. Dr. Montgomery provides an epistemic analysis of the presuppositions, assumptions and fallacies underlying current clinical understanding of DBS as well as the physiology and pathophysiology affected by DBS. Reviews of the safety and efficacy for a number of conditions, patient selections and issues in the post-operative management are also included. Given the revolutionary potential and the complexity of DBS in an ever changing healthcare delivery context, the ethics of DBS are discussed in detail.
