|Official Title:||A Feasibility Study of Focused Ultrasound to Perform Bilateral Medial Thalamotomy for the Treatment of Chronic Trigeminal Neuropathic Pain|
|Actual Study Start Date :||December 1, 2017|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||January 2019|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||April 2019|
Experimental: Transcranial ExAblate
ExAblate Transcranial MR Guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS)
Device: Transcranial ExAblate
ExAblate Thalamotomy for Chronic Trigeminal Neuropathic Pain
Sham Comparator: Sham Transcranial ExAblate
ExAblate MRgFUS Sham Procedure
Device: Sham Transcranial ExAblate
Sham ExAblate Thalamotomy procedure
- Severity of Device and Procedure related complications [ Time Frame: At the time of ExAblate Transcranial thalamotomy procedure. ]To evaluate the incidence and severity of adverse events associated with ExAblate lesioning of the bilateral medial thalamus for painful neuropathies of the face and head that are severe and treatment-refractory.
- Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) [ Time Frame: Change in NPRS from before treatment to 3 Months following treatment. ]To compare the change in worst pain experienced over 24 hours before and at 3 months following bilateral FUS medial thalamotomy versus sham procedures as determined from the 11-point numeric pain rating scale.
- Patient Global Impression of Change (PGIC) [ Time Frame: PGIC will be assessed 7 days, 1 month, and 3 months following treatment. ]To assess the patient-reported change in activity, limitations, symptoms, emotions, and overall quality of life following treatment.
- Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information Systems (PROMIS) Pain Inventory [ Time Frame: PROMIS pain inventory will be assessed before treatment and at 1 day, 7 days, 1 month, and 3 months following treatment. ]To assess the patient-reported PROMIS pain domain questionnaires for pain intensity, quality, behavior, and interference.
