Evaluation of Bilateral Gamma Knife Thalamotomy in Patients Presenting With Severe Essential Tremor

Essential tremor (ET) is the most frequent movement disorder. Its prevalence is about 1/200 implying that at least 300 000 peoples are concerned in France. Its frequency increase with age (14% of patients 65 yo). The diagnostic criteria are postural and kinetic tremor that can be associated with head/voice tremor. ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Botulinum Toxin Injection Efficacy in the Treatment of Head Essential Tremor

Type of study: multi-center, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled therapeutic clinical trial. Number of centers: 13 centers : Clermont-Ferrand, Paris (Fondation Rothschild et APHP), Toulouse, Lyon, Amiens, Bordeaux, Narbonne, Lille, Strasbourg, Nmes, Marseille, Besanon. Medical product Botulinum toxin type A, 200U (BOTOX 200 Units, Allergan) Patients Patients eligible for inclusion will ...

Phase

Deep Brain Stimulation for Voice Tremor: Left Right or Both Hemispheres?

Essential Tremor (ET) is the most common movement disorder in adults, affecting approximately 5% of individuals over the age of 65. Of this 5%, roughly 20% of these patients suffer from Essential Voice Tremor (EVT): the phonatory manifestation of ET. Patients with EVT lose their ability to speak due to ...

Phase

Deep braIn Stimulation for Tremor TractographIC Versus Traditional

In this monocentric, randomized, controlled, 2 arms, interventional, observer-blinded feasibility trial patients suffering from therapy resistant essential tremor (ET) will be treated with Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). After screening (e.g. obtaining informed consent, assessment of inclusion/exclusion criteria etc.) patients will be randomized to one of the following groups: Group 1 ...

Phase N/A

Responsive Deep Brain Stimulator for Essential Tremor

The purpose of this study is to investigate brain signals related to intention tremor in essential tremor in order to deliver deep brain stimulation only when the patient is showing symptoms. By delivering stimulation only when needed, the investigators hypothesize that the treatment will be more effective, will cause fewer ...

Phase N/A

RAD 1601: EDGE Radiosurgery for Intractable Essential Tremor and Tremor-Dominant Parkinson's Disease

Per the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, tremor is an involuntary, rhythmic muscle contraction leading to shaking movements in one or more parts of the body. It is a common movement disorder that most often affects the upper extremities but can also occur in the head, vocal cords, ...

Phase N/A

Demand-driven Management of Essential Tremor

Essential tremor is effectively treated with deep brain stimulation of the ventralis intermedius nucleus of the thalamus, presumably because high-frequency stimulation disrupts aberrant cerebellar-thalamic input. For the most part, patients with essential tremor have a kinetic tremor that is present or worsened with movement. However, DBS therapy is currently continuous, ...

Phase N/A

Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Essential Tremor and Parkinsonian Tremor

Tremor is the most common of all movement disorders. Patients with essential tremor (ET) or Parkinsonian tremor (PT) may be severely disabled by their tremor. When the tremor is inadequately controlled by medications, surgical options are often offered. However, some patients may prefer a noninvasive treatment approach and some patients ...

Phase N/A

Intensive Versus Traditional Voice Therapy

The goal of voice therapy is optimal long-term vocal quality and communication function with minimal recurrence. Traditional voice therapy for dysphonia typically consists of one to two therapy sessions each week with a single clinician for about 8 weeks. Another approach of voice therapy is intensive short-term therapy also known ...

Phase N/A

Clinical and Physiological Studies of Tremor Syndromes

Objectives The purpose of this protocol is to study the phenotypic spectrum and the pathophysiology of tremor syndromes by performing small behavioral, electrophysiological and neuroimaging sub-studies. The protocol includes techniques with minimal risk (standard clinical evaluation, MRI, EEG, peripheral nerve stimulation, single and paired pulse TMS) and certain sub-studies may ...
