Effect of DBS on Quality of Life in Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy

There are limited therapeutical options for patients with secondary dystonia due to cerebral palsy. Pharmacotherapy is often without effect, or side effects are severe. Meanwhile deep brain stimulation (DBS) has proven to be a safe and effective therapy for patients with parkinson´s disease or primary / idiopathic dystonia. Experiences with ...

Phase N/A

ExAblate Transcranial MRgFUS for the Management of Treatment-Refractory Movement Disorders

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and initial effectiveness of MRI-guided focused ultrasound thermal ablation of a designated area in the brain of patients suffering from movement disorder symptoms: - FUS under MRI-guidance and MRI-based thermometry can be safely delivered to patients suffering from treatment-refractory movement ...

Phase N/A

Effectiveness of Robotic Assisted Gait Training in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Within a randomized controlled design the effects of robotic-assisted locomotor training (15 sessions within 5 weeks) will be examined in a sample of 34 children with cerebral palsy. Children will be randomly assigned to an intervention or waiting list group. Assessments will be performed at baseline, in week 6 as ...

Phase N/A

Relaxation Training to Decrease Pain and Improve Function in Adolescents With Cerebral Palsy

Chronic pain is a serious problem in many youths with disabilities. There is a growing body of research supporting the efficacy of relaxation training for reducing chronic pain in adults. Given this evidence, there has been a growing interest in determining whether these findings also generalize to youths with chronic ...

Phase N/A

DIR/ Floortime Parent Training Intervention for the Children With Developmental Disabilities

The objective of this study is to test whether adding the parent training program using the relationship-based approach could help the children with development disabilities (DDs) would confer additional benefits over routine clinical care available to both groups in terms of improving their development and reducing behavior problems. The study ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Orthopaedic Data Bank (Acute and Chronic)

All patients seen the Orthopaedic clinic will be informed of the data collection and asked to participate. If the patient is agreeable to participation, informed consent will then be obtained.

Phase N/A

Physiological Brain Atlas Development

Purpose: To create a brain atlas that will allow physiological and clinical information to be assigned to anatomical locations in MRI space, utilizing non-rigid MRI normalization algorithms. These data will specifically be acquired from the population of patients undergoing stereotactic brain procedures. 2. To collate and analyze the brain data ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of an Advanced Lower Extremity Neuroprostheses

Protocol Outline: Patents undergo surgery in which electrodes are implanted into muscles of the trunk and legs. Electrode leads are connected to an stimulator/telemeter. Following implantation, patients undergo training in standing, transfers and other advanced mobility skills using the functional electrical stimulation system. A prescribed course of exercise, functional training ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Drooling With Type A Botulinum Toxin in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Sialorrhea, or drooling, has been reported to be a significant problem in 10%to 37% of patients with cerebral palsy. Excessive drooling may cause skin maceration, increased the burden of caregiver, affect articulation of the patients, and increase the risk of aspiration and dehydration. Many options, including various therapies, medications, surgeries ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Study of Scoliosis in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Bracing severe neuromuscular scoliotic curves rarely serves as definitive treatment, thus most progressive curves require surgical intervention in order to sustain or improve sitting (or ambulatory) abilities. Surgery is a demanding intervention for these patients, with variable functional gains. Controversy persists regarding indications for surgery, timing, and technique. Concerns about ...
