RESULTS

Found (32) clinical trials

You are being asked to participate in this research study because you have cervical dystonia (CD). Botulinum toxin treatment can be offered as a treatment option for the treatment of CD. The current practice for botulinum toxin injection treatment is to inject patients every 3 months. However, not all patients ...

Phase

Dystonia is a disorder characterized by excessive involuntary contraction of muscles with repetitive and patterned movements. The primary focal dystonias are the most common type of dystonia and include Limb dystonias (like writer's cramp), Cervical dystonia (spasmodic torticollis), Laryngeal dystonias (like spasmodic dysphonia), and Craniofacial dystonias (like blepharospasm). The purpose ...

Phase N/A

Investigation of Non-Invasive Outcomes Predictors in Patients Undergoing DBS for Movement Disorders

The purpose of the study is to determine if non-invasive measurements of brain waves from the skin called electroencephalography (EEG) can predict whether the brain stimulator will help your symptoms. Our goal is to obtain these brain wave measurements with patients both awake and under general anesthesia, and then to ...

Incobotulinum Toxin A (Xeomin ) As A Treatment For Focal Task-Specific Dystonia Of The Musician's Hand

The investigational drug being studied in this protocol is Incobotulinumtoxin A (Xeomin®). Botulinum toxin (BoNT) prevents the release of the acetylcholine from peripheral nerves, inhibiting muscle contractions. BoNT is effective in relaxing overactive muscles. In musician's dystonia, the ability to reduce abnormally overactive muscles in the hand can be critical ...

Phase

Post-marketing Surveillance of Administration of Botulinum Toxin Type B(NerBloc)-Investigation of the Clinical Condition in Patients With Change From Botulinum Toxin Type A

Investigation of the clinical condition in patients with cervical dystonia by Toronto Western Spasmodic Torticollis Scale (TWSTRS)

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

A Randomized Controlled Trail Comparing Subthalamic and Pallidal Deep Brain Stimulation for Dystonia

In this prospective randomized controlled study,elecrodes were bilaterally implanted in STN and Gpi of 40 patients with dystonia.

Phase N/A

Compare Two Guidance Techniques for Botulinum Toxin Injections for the Treatment of Limb Spasticity and Focal Dystonia

This is a study to investigate the use of two targeting techniques for botulinum toxin (BoNT) injection for the treatment of focal hand dystonia and upper limb spasticity: Electrophysiologic guidance, using electrical stimulation, and ultrasound. Subjects will be selected from the clinical programs of both Icahn School of Medicine at ...

Phase N/A

Registry of Deep Brain Stimulation With the VERCISE System for Treatment of Dystonia: Vercise DBS Dystonia Registry

To compile characteristics of real-world outcomes of Boston Scientific Corporation's commercially approved VerciseTM Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Systems for the treatment of dystonia. Subjects' improvement in disease symptoms and overall Quality of life will be assessed.
