Tremor is a common and very disabling symptom in patients with essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease. In the recent years, transcranial ablation of thalamic nuclei using magnetic resonance guided high-intensity focused ultrasound has emerged as a minimally invasive treatment for tremor. The aim of this review is to discuss, in the light of our single-center experience, the technique, current applications, results, and future perspectives of this novel technology.

Abstract

Tremor is a common and very disabling symptom in patients with essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease. In the recent years, transcranial ablation of thalamic nuclei using magnetic resonance guided high-intensity focused ultrasound has emerged as a minimally invasive treatment for tremor. The aim of this review is to discuss, in the light of our single-center experience, the technique, current applications, results, and future perspectives of this novel technology.
