Using Sound Waves to Treat Essential Tremor
Neuravive is an incisionless treatment for essential tremor patients who have not responded to medications. The treatment is performed in an MRI suite, often on an outpatient basis.
During the Neuravive treatment, ultrasound waves pass safely through the skull without incisions. These ultrasound waves are focused on a small spot in the brain (Vim nucleus of the thalamus), considered to be responsible for causing tremor, to create a small lesion. For many patients, the result is immediate tremor improvement in their treated hand with minimal complications.
The Neuravive focused ultrasound treatment could be an option for patients who don’t get acceptable tremor relief from medications. Three-year follow up of the clinical trial demonstrated a positive safety profile and a 76.5% improvement in tremor severity score.Download the brochure
