Thalamic field potentials during deep brain stimulation of periventricular gray in chronic pain.

Abstract:

Stimulation of the central gray matter areas has been used for the treatment of chronic pain for decades. To better understand the mechanism of action of such treatment we studied the effects of stimulation of the periventricular gray (PVG) on the sensory thalamus in two patients with chronic central pain. In each case, two electrodes were implanted in the PVG (Medtronic 3389) and the ventroposterolateral thalamic nucleus (Medtronic 3387), respectively, under guidance of CT/MRI image fusion. ...
