Abstract

Aim. The aim of this study was to report on Italian cases of dystonia treated by deep brain stimulation up to the end of 2005. Methods. Retrospective survey. Presentation of data collection among all Italian neurosurgical institutions. Results. Seven out of 123 Italian neurosurgical centres were enrolled. Sixty-nine patients were operated. According to different classification criteria, cases were grouped as follows: 37 primary and 32 secondary dystonia; 61 generalized and 8 focal dystonia; 16 patients aged at onset 20 years. Primary dystonia (DYT) mutation 1 was identified in 21% of primary generalized dystonia. Age at surgery was
