1. Deep brain stimulation in the management of multiple sclerosis tremor.
Match Strength: 13.096
Multiple sclerosis can be associated with action tremor in 50%-75% of patients. Medical treatment usually does not provide adequate long-term tremor suppression. Deep brain stimulation of the ventro-infero-medial nucleus of the thalamus can provide a dramatic, although temporary, suppression of the tremor, but a limited number of patients are available for surgical treatment ...

2. Essential tremor prevalence is low in Arabic villages in Israel : Door-to-door neurological examinations.
Match Strength: 10.651
OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence of essential tremor (ET) in Arabic villages of Wadi Ara. BACKGROUND: The prevalence ET which is higher than Parkinson's disease in North America and Europe, differs according to study population and methodology. Since hospital record based epidemiology carries referral bias and might provide low estimates of ET prevalence, we carried a population based survey. METHODS: This door-to-door survey comprised the Arabic villages of Wadi Ara in Northern Israel. Consecutive residents who agreed to participate in the study and were older than 64 years at prevalence ... Read More »
