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

Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery for Focal Hand Dystonia

Objectives To confirm the safety and efficacy of thalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS) targeting the ventralis oralis anterior/ventralis oralis posterior (VOA/VOP) nuclear complex in the treatment of subjects with focal hand dystonia (FHD); and to study the electrophysiologic properties of neurons in the VOA/VOP complex. Deep brain stimulation DBS is ...

Phase

Cholinergic Receptor Imaging in Dystonia

Dystonia is a heterogeneous group of movement disorders characterized by abnormal muscle contractions resulting in abnormal postures and movements. The spectrum of dystonia includes focal, segmental, multifocal, and generalized presentations with a broad range of age of onset. An example of a focal dystonia is cervical dystonia. The pathophysiology of ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Trial of STN-DBS for Primary Cranial-Cervical Dystonia

In this randomised, sham-controlled trial, investigators will recruit forty patients with primary cranial-cervical dystonia to receive an implanted device for STN-DBS, and participants will be randomly assigned to receive either neurostimulation or sham stimulation for 3 months.The primary end point was the change from baseline to 3 months in the ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy and Safety of DBS in Patients With Primary Dystonia

Dystonia is an uncommon brain disorder in which there is abnormal muscle tone producing twisting, writhing movements and abnormal postures. It is associated with abnormal electrical activity in two groups of nerve cells in the brain called the globus pallidus internus (GPi) and the subthalamic nucleus (STN). GPi DBS appears ...

Phase N/A

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for the Treatment of the Tardive Dyskinesia.

The study was a parallel control design trial for 2 weeks. Patients with schizophrenia were treated with 10-Hz rTMS on left motor cortex (added to the ongoing treatment). Clinical symptoms and MEP were assessment before and after rTMS treatment.

Phase N/A

Clinical and Kinematic Assessment for Determination of Botox Injection Parameters in Cervical Dystonia

This study investigates the use of a kinematic measurement device to quantify the abnormal head movements and postures in patients with cervical dystonia (CD) in order to individualize and optimize botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) injection therapy. A single sensor captures five degrees of freedom of the neck and head ...

Phase

Effect of Increasing Motor Cortex Inhibition on Task Specific Dystonia

Dystonia is a disease where muscles in the affected body part are abnormally active. This may result in abnormal postures. The underlying mechanisms are not known. One proposed mechanism is located in the motor area of the brain that controls the coordination of muscles, called the motor cortex. It is ...

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.
