German term or phrase: Thelatomien
Unilaterale Asterixis konnte kontralateral nach Laesionen im Thalamus, capsula interna, frontalen und paristalem Kortex gesehen werden, wobei die Laesionen mit nachfolgender Asterixis in 9 Patienten mit stereotaktischen ventrolateralen Thelatomien anzunehmen sein duerfen.

Unilateral Asterixis was noted controlaterally following lesions to the thalamus, the internal capsule, and frontal and parietal cortex. In these cases, the most circumscribed lesions, with subsequent asterixis, in 9 patients, may be assumed to be due to stereotractic, ventro-lateral (?).

(Note: "Thelatomien [or Thalatomien] is in none of my dictionaries; there is "thalamotonies")

thalamotomy or thalamectomy ?
Explanation:
That would be my guess. No hits at all on Thelatomie (none of my medical dictionaries list the term, either), but I did get quite a few hits on ventri-lateral thalamotomy (see below).

I'd say that this is a safe assumption if your text deals with treatment of Parkinson's or therapies for severe pain.

Thalamo|tomie (­; -tom*) f: stereotaktische Operation* mit Koagulation von Kerngebieten des Thalamus bei anders nicht beeinflußbaren Schmerzen, v. a. Anaesthesia dolorosa, Zoster-Neuralgie, Phantomschmerzen, sympathischer Reflexdystrophie, Tumorschmerzen; Kompl.: Schädigung der Pyramidenbahn, Dysästhesie, Ataxie, Apathie.
