Stereotactic Laser Ablation for Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (SLATE)
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Visualase MRI-guided laser ablation system for necrotization or coagulation of epileptogenic foci in patients with intractable mesial temporal lobe epilepsy.
Prospective, Longitudinal Study of the Natural History and Functional Status of Patients With Myotubular Myopathy (MTM)
This is a prospective, non-interventional, longitudinal study of the natural history and function of approximately 60 patients with MTM from the United States, Canada and Europe. The duration of the study, including the enrollment period, will be 36 months. Data from the study will be used to characterize the disease course of MTM and determine which outcome measures will be the best to assess the efficacy of potential therapies.
Pilot Study to Evaluate MR-guided Laser Ablation of Focal Lesions in Patients With Medically Refractory Partial Epilepsy
To investigate whether MR-guided laser induced thermal therapy in patients diagnosed with focal lesional epilepsy using the Visualase Thermal Therapy System is both a feasible and safe minimally invasive technique for control of seizures in such patients.
ExAblate Transcranial MR Guided Focused Ultrasound for the Treatment of Essential Tremors
The objective of this prospective, randomized, double-blind (to subjects, local site's blinded assessor and Tremor Core Lab assessors), crossover, multi-site, two-arm study (ExAblate treated arm Vs ExAblate Sham treated control arm) is to test the efficacy of treatment using the ExAblate Transcranial System and to further demonstrate safety in medication-refractory tremor in subjects with essential tremor (ET).
