DBS of Posterior Subthalamic Area (PSA) and Ventral Intermediate Nucleus (VIM) in Essential Tremor (ET)

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the ventral intermediate nucleus of the thalamus (VIM) is an FDA approved treatment for medication refractory essential tremor (ET). However, VIM stimulation can be associated with impacts on speech and balance. There is also suggestion that there may be habituation to stimulation in more than …
