Poststroke pain caused by small infarction or hemorrhage at the thalamus or at the post. limb of the internal capsule were treated by medication, physical therapy, etc. Sometimes pain control is not easy, it needed surgical intervention. We assess the medial thalamotomy or motor cortex stimulation in 2 poststroke pain patients. We performed a motor cortex stimulation for a 47-yearmale postinfarction pain patient. Postoperation VAS was decreased from 10 to 4. His symptom was improving state during 8 months follow-up period. Motor cortex stimulation is very effective for poststroke pain patient.
Key Words: Poststroke pain, Motor cortex stimulation.
