Essential tremor, also referred to as familial, idiopathic or benign tremor, causes uncontrollable shaking that can impact a person’s ability to live an independent and active lifestyle.
When an essential tremor patient does not get tremor relief from medications, surgical interventions may be considered.
Focused ultrasound provides an incisionless essential tremor (ET) treatment option for certain patients who do not respond to medications.
Once the target is confirmed, the energy is gradually increased to create a highly accurate and controllable lesion. The result for many patients is immediate improvement of hand tremor with minimal complications.
During the Neuravive treatment, first low energy is applied for locating the ultrasound to the anatomic target followed by physiologic evaluation of patient response including tremor relief as well as potential side effects.
This allows the treating physician to make adjustments before making the therapeutic deep brain lesion.
