Combination of Thalamotomy and Longitudinal Myelotomy in the Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis
Between 1964 and 1971, 30 patients with multiple sclerosis were referred to our neurosurgical department for the treatment of intention tremor, spasticity and intractable pain. Twenty-six patients underwent unilateral thalamotomy, 5 had longitudinal myelotomy of Bischof (Bischof, 1951; Laitinen and Singounas, 1971) and one had spinal commissurotomy. Two patients had both thalamotomy and longitudinal myelotomy.
