UVA neurosurgeon Jeffrey Elias, MD, first tested focused ultrasound in 15 volunteers with essential tremor, a common movement disorder. All 15 reported "significant improvement" in their hand tremor and in their quality of life. Elias has since launched a larger, international trial and is also evaluating the technology for its potential to reduce shaking associated with Parkinson's disease.

The single-site pilot study, which has been funded by the FUS Foundation, began in February 2011 at the University of Virginia with neurosurgeon W. Jeffrey Elias, MD serving as principal investigator.
All study participants are being followed for three-months, and final clinical trial data is expected to be available in March 2012. Elias will present that data at the 2012 American Association of Neurosurgeons meeting, scheduled for April 14-19.
Preliminary study data, which was presented by Elias at the 2011 Congress of Neurological Surgeons meeting in October, was highly promising. The study's first 10 patients experienced a 78 percent improvement in contralateral tremor scores in their dominant hand, as assessed with the Clinical Rating Scale for Tremor (CRST). Patients' functional activities scores improved by 92 percent, as measured in the 'Disability' subsection of the CRST. Elias said that outcomes and complications were comparable to other procedures for tremor, including stereotactic thalamotomy and deep brain stimulation.

Jeff Elias, MD, Associate Professor of Neurological Surgery and Neurology and Director of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery, is the first to have performed stereotactic procedures in the VISIUS Surgical Theatre. Using the rotational angiographic capabilities of the bi-plane, Dr. Elias creates 3D anatomical images of the brain which are then fused with images generated by the intraoperative MR to enhance his visualization of the brain. Dr. Elias commented: "The combination of imaging modalities in this suite is critical for procedures treating Parkinson's or Essential Tremor.

WASHINGTON, DC (October 3, 2011) - In a presentation at the Congress of Neurological Surgeons today, University of Virginia neurosurgeon W. Jeffrey Elias, MD reported that preliminary results of a pilot clinical trial indicate that MR-guided focused ultrasound has the potential to safely and effectively control essential tremor (ET), a common neurological condition that affects 10 million Americans.
Results from the study's first 10 patients showed a 78 percent improvement in contralateral tremor scores in the hand, as assessed with the Clinical Rating Scale for Tremor (CRST). Patients' functional activities scores improved by 92 percent, as measured in the 'Disability' subsection of the CRST. Outcomes and complications were comparable to other procedures for tremor, including stereotactic thalamotomy and deep brain stimulation.
"So far, this noninvasive treatment has been life-changing for patients," said Elias, the study's principal investigator and Director of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery at UVA.
...
Most study participants have had ET for decades, Elias reported. As part of the study's inclusion criteria, all had previously taken at least two medications that failed to control their tremor. Despite the severity of their disability, patients had opted to cope with symptoms rather than undergo invasive surgical procedures.
Conducted under an FDA-approved protocol, the single-arm, non-randomized, phase 1 study began in February 2011 and is expected to treat 15 patients before concluding. All patients are being followed for three months. If final results prove successful, Elias anticipates launching a larger, pivotal trial to study the overall safety and long-term efficacy of MR-guided focused ultrasound in treating medication-refractory ET.
