Found (49) clinical trials

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 ...

Phase N/A

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 disorders ...

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.

Phase N/A

Bilateral Pallidal Stimulation in Patients With Advanced Parkinson's Disease-LATESTIM

The indication and excellent therapeutic effects of STN stimulation have been sufficiently proven in advanced PD, and the contraindications for this treatment are rather well established. Also, the observation that patients fulfilling the "STN-profile" but who had been operated for pallidal DBS and lost part of the treatment's benefit over ...

Phase N/A

Botulinum Toxin for the Treatment of Involuntary Movement Disorders

The efficacy of botulinum toxin (BTX) has now been demonstrated for a variety of diseases associated with involuntary muscle spasms or movement. The application of botulinum toxin therapy to movement disorders requires treatment tailored to the individual patient and specific techniques of injection. This protocol 1) provides for training of ...
