A further trial of CT-oriented microrecording guided stereotactic selective thalamotomy was conducted at the Centra Internacional de Restauración Neurológica, Havana City as treatment of resting tremor in 11 patients with idiopathic Parkinson''s disease (PD), and in 3 other patients with intentional tremor associated with multisystemic atrophy and cerebral palsy. Three of the parkinsonian patients had undergone fetal mesencephalic tissue transplantation with significant improvement of the most debilitating symptoms of PD and stabilization of the motor state, but predominantly unilateral tremor had impaired them progressively despite increased levodopa doses. A Leksell frame was used with a novel surgical planning system and electrophysiological recordings to identify the optimal target point inside the ventralis intermedius. In all but 1 case, the tremor was totally arrested. No persistent complications were observed.
