Abstract

There has been a renewed interest in, and application of, the technique of posteroventral pallidotomy (PVP) for the treatment of certain patients with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Pallidotomy was initially developed by Leksell in Sweden in the middle fifties with good but variable results. With recent advances in imaging techniques, stereotactic surgery in general has become much more frequent. At the same time, the physiological recordings of Vitek, De Long, et al. in the thalamus and basal ganglia suggested these techniques could be extended to the surgical theater to produce refinement in the targeting procedures for PVP.
