Essential tremor is an incurable, degenerative brain disorder that results in increasingly debilitating tremor, and afflicts an estimated 7 million people in the US. In one study, 25% of e...
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is the gold standard treatment for Essential Tremor (ET). ET is a movement disorder which causes the arms, feet, fingers, head or voice to involuntarily shake....
To evaluate the effect of deep brain stimulation (DBS) vs best medical treatment in essential tremor (ET) in a randomized, single-blinded controlled trial.
The purpose of this study is evaluate the effectiveness and safety of a possible new treatment for Essential Tremor (ET) using external wearable sensors, which have the capability of recor...
To determine the efficacy of frameless Virtual Cone Radiosurgical Thalamotomy for medically refractory essential tremor with the Fahn-Tolosa-Marin Tremor Rating Scale (FTMTRS) in patients ...
Thalamic ventral intermediate nucleus (VIM) deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an effective therapy for medication-refractory essential tremor (ET). However, 13-40% of patients with an initially robust t...
The predominant neurosurgical approach to medication-refractory essential tremor (ET) is thalamic deep brain stimulation (DBS). The emergence of magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) t...
Dystonic tremor (DT) is defined as a tremor occurring in a body region affected by dystonia. The pathophysiological mechanisms behind DT are supposed to involve anomalies affecting the thalamic pallid...
Voice tremor (VT) is the involuntary and rhythmical phonatory instability of the voice. Recent findings suggest that unilateral deep brain stimulation of the ventral intermediate nucleus (Vim-DBS) can...
Despite its efficacy in tremor-suppression, the ventral intermediate thalamic (VIM) nucleus has largely been neglected in deep brain stimulation (DBS) for tremor-dominant Parkinson's disease (tdPD). T...
A relatively common disorder characterized by a fairly specific pattern of tremors which are most prominent in the upper extremities and neck, inducing titubations of the head. The tremor is usually mild, but when severe may be disabling. An autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance may occur in some families (i.e., familial tremor). (Mov Disord 1988;13(1):5-10)
Therapy for MOVEMENT DISORDERS, especially PARKINSON DISEASE, that applies electricity via stereotactic implantation of ELECTRODES in specific areas of the BRAIN such as the THALAMUS. The electrodes are attached to a neurostimulator placed subcutaneously.
Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.
A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.
Cyclical movement of a body part that can represent either a physiologic process or a manifestation of disease. Intention or action tremor, a common manifestation of CEREBELLAR DISEASES, is aggravated by movement. In contrast, resting tremor is maximal when there is no attempt at voluntary movement, and occurs as a relatively frequent manifestation of PARKINSON DISEASE.
