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

Experimental Therapeutics in Essential Tremor Using Cerebellar Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

The purpose of this study is to determine whether transcranial cathodal direct current stimulation (tDCS) delivered over the cerebellum can improve essential tremor.

Phase N/A

Cerebello-thalamo-cortical Coupling in Essential Tremor

Essential tremor (ET) is a frequent and disabling disorder with progressive worsening of postural tremor of the upper limbs that impairs most of the manual activities of every day life (feeding, drinking, etc.). Although the pathophysiology of essential tremor (ET) is not fully elucidated, tremor is associated with abnormal activity ...

Phase N/A

Thalamic Deep Brain Stimulation for Spasmodic Dysphonia- DEBUSSY Trial

Laryngeal Dystonia (LD), also commonly referred to as spasmodic dysphonia, is a neurological voice disorder characterized by involuntary dystonic contractions of the laryngeal muscles. Current treatments such as botox and voice therapy only provide temporary relief and thus, the investigators are exploring new strategies to provide long-term, sustained improvement. Deep ...

Phase

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

The Motor Network in Essential Tremor: Mechanisms of Therapy

The research study goal is to advance the understanding of the mechanisms for essential tremor through brain recordings. The investigators will collect brain signals in persons with essential tremor undergoing neurosurgical treatment (deep brain stimulation implantation). By recording from the implanted electrodes for deep brain stimulation along with two other ...
