Abstract

Tremor is a prevalent symptom associated with multiple conditions, including Essential Tremor (ET), Parkinson’s disease (PD), multiple sclerosis (MS), stroke, and trauma. The surgical management of tremor evolved from stereotactic lesions to deep-brain stimulation (DBS), which allowed safe and reversible interference with specific neural networks. This paper reviews the current literature on DBS for tremor, starting with a detailed discussion of current tremor targets (Vim, Raprl, caudal Zi, Vo and STN) and continuing with a discussion of results obtained when performing DBS in the various aforementioned tremor syndromes. Future directions for DBS research are then briefly discussed.
