Abstract

We reviewed the cases of 9 patients with vascular lesions in thalamus, 5 hemorrhage and 4 infarctions that were confirmed clinical and CT findings. Generally CT scan and clinical datas proved to be helpful to the diagnosis and prognosis to thalamic lesion. However, these findings are not exactly correlated to prognosis of patients. We can gain more informative factors to our patients for Multimodal evoked potential examination (MEP) to analysis. Especially in our cases, MEP findings proved to be the most effective results in the determinations of the prognosis. We review the literature and discuss the treatment and discuss the treatment and prognosis in thalamic lesion. Emphasis is placed on the current and optimal method of the evaluation of prognosis in thalamic lesions using MEP combined with the finding of CT scan and clinical status.
