Description
We assessed the efficiency of pallidal deep brain stimulation for tardive dystonia. This search was carried out in Electronic chart of Tokushima University Hospital. 5 patients with tardive dystonia were enrolled. GPi(internal segment of globus pallidus)was the target in all patients. The motor part of Burke-Fahn-Marsden Dystonia Rating Scale(BFMDRS)was improved by 78.4% on average when compared to preoperative BFMDRS scores. The performed analysis indicates that GPi-DBS is an effective and safe treatment for tardive dystonia.
