Use of surface electromyography to assess and select patients with idiopathic dystonia for bilateral pallidal stimulation.

Abstract:

OBJECT: The object of this study was to identify a preoperative physiological index by using surface electromyography (EMG) signals that would correlate with clinical outcome in dystonic patients following bilateral pallidal stimulation. METHODS: In 14 patients with spasmodic torticollis, generalized dystonia, and myoclonic dystonia, surface EMG signals were recorded from the most affected muscle groups.
