Brief Summary:
The objective of this clinical investigation is to characterize the clinical performance of Abbott's Clinician Programmer Electrode Screening Mode tool (InformityTM tool) in programming InfinityTM deep brain stimulation (DBS) systems for patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) or essential tremor (ET).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Essential Tremor Parkinson's Disease Device: Clinician programmer electrode screening mode tool Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

This is a prospective, non-randomized, single-arm, multi-center, post-market clinical investigation designed to evaluate Abbott's Informity tool for Infinity DBS systems.

This clinical investigation will be conducted at up to 5 centers in the United States.

Up to 40 patients were intended to enroll in the study. However the study was stopped after enrolling 8 subjects at 3 sites.

Subjects participating in this clinical investigation will be followed for 6 months. The expected duration of enrollment is 6 months. The total duration of the clinical investigation is expected to be 18 months. The primary and secondary endpoints will be evaluated when all subjects have completed their 6 month follow-up visits

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Therapeutic Window Size With Selected Contact at the Informity Programming Visit Compared to Baseline [ Time Frame: At Day 21 compared to baseline ]
    Therapeutic window was defined as the electrical current at which the side effect appeared minus the electrical current at which complete therapeutic benefit was obtained. The reported value is the range of current between first side effect appearance and complete therapeutic benefit. The 'Selected contact' is the therapeutic window for the contact configuration selected for the patient's programming. The 'best contact' is the therapeutic window for the contact configuration that showed the widest therapeutic window during Informity testing.

  2. Change in Therapeutic Window Size With Best Contact at the Informity Programming Visit Compared to Baseline [ Time Frame: At Day 21 compared to baseline ]
    Therapeutic window was defined as the electrical current at which the side effect appeared minus the electrical current at which complete therapeutic benefit was obtained. The reported value is the range of current between first side effect appearance and complete therapeutic benefit. The 'Selected contact' is the therapeutic window for the contact configuration selected for the patient's programming. The 'best contact' is the therapeutic window for the contact configuration that showed the widest therapeutic window during Informity testing.

  3. Change in Therapeutic Electrical Energy Delivered (TEED) With Selected Contact at the Informity Programming Visit Compared to Baseline [ Time Frame: At Day 21 compared to baseline ]
    TEED measures the total energy delivered by the deep brain stimulation system, and is represented as delivery over a set, arbitrary period of time. TEED is determined by the programmed stimulation parameters and measured system impedance. The 'Selected contact' is the contact configuration selected for the patient's programming. The 'best contact' is the contact configuration with the lowest TEED during Informity testing.

  4. Change in Therapeutic Electrical Energy Delivered (TEED) With Best Contact at the Informity Programming Visit Compared to Baseline [ Time Frame: At Day 21 compared to baseline ]
    TEED measures the total energy delivered by the deep brain stimulation system, and is represented as delivery over a set, arbitrary period of time. TEED is determined by the programmed stimulation parameters and measured system impedance. The 'Selected contact' is the contact configuration selected for the patient's programming. The 'best contact' is the contact configuration with the lowest TEED during Informity testing.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Motor Symptom Evaluation for ET Subjects- Change in Fahn Tolosa Marin Tremor Rating Scale (FTM-TRS) Scores at 3 Months [ Time Frame: At 3 months compared to baseline ]
    Change in Fahn-Tolosa-Marin tremor rating scale for ET subjects at 3-month follow-up visit compared to baseline. Fahn-Tolosa-Marin tremor rating scale scores are expressed as a percentage of the total score possible (range of 0% to 100%), and lower scores indicate less severe motor symptoms.

  2. Motor Symptom Evaluation for ET Subjects- Change in Fahn Tolosa Marin Tremor Rating Scale (FTM-TRS) Scores at 6 Months [ Time Frame: At 6 months compared to baseline ]
    Change in Fahn-Tolosa-Marin tremor rating scale for ET subjects at 6-month follow-up visit compared to baseline. Fahn-Tolosa-Marin tremor rating scale scores are expressed as a percentage of the total score possible (range of 0% to 100%), and lower scores indicate less severe motor symptoms.

  3. Mean Quality of Life for Essential Tremor Subjects as Measured by the Quality of Life in Essential Tremor (QUEST) at Baseline [ Time Frame: At baseline ]
    Mean quality of life will be measured by the QUEST for ET subjects at baseline. The QUEST questionnaire consists of 30 items, which are rated from 0 to 4, corresponding to the frequency (from never to always). Those 30 items assess how tremor impacts a function or how it can be associated with feelings or attitudes. The 30 items contribute to five sub scales (number of items contributing to each scale in parentheses): Physical/ADL (9), Psychosocial (9), Communication (3), Hobbies/Leisure (3), and Work/Finances (6). The score on each sub scale is expressed as a percentage of the total score possible, with a higher score indicating greater dissatisfaction with that domain of QOL. Maximal score of 100 indicates worse quality of life, while minimal score 0 corresponds to best quality of life.

  4. Mean Quality of Life for Essential Tremor Subjects as Measured by the Quality of Life in Essential Tremor (QUEST) at 3 Months [ Time Frame: At 3 months ]
    Mean quality of life will be measured by the QUEST for ET subjects at 3 months follow-up visit. The QUEST questionnaire consists of 30 items, which are rated from 0 to 4, corresponding to the frequency (from never to always). Those 30 items assess how tremor impacts a function or how it can be associated with feelings or attitudes. The 30 items contribute to five sub scales (number of items contributing to each scale in parentheses): Physical/ADL (9), Psychosocial (9), Communication (3), Hobbies/Leisure (3), and Work/Finances (6). The score on each sub scale is expressed as a percentage of the total score possible, with a higher score indicating greater dissatisfaction with that domain of QOL. Maximal score of 100 indicates worse quality of life, while minimal score 0 corresponds to best quality of life.

  5. Mean Quality of Life for Essential Tremor Subjects as Measured by the Quality of Life in Essential Tremor (QUEST) at 6 Months [ Time Frame: At 6 months ]
    Mean quality of life will be measured by the QUEST for ET subjects at 6 months follow-up visit. The QUEST questionnaire consists of 30 items, which are rated from 0 to 4, corresponding to the frequency (from never to always). Those 30 items assess how tremor impacts a function or how it can be associated with feelings or attitudes. The 30 items contribute to five sub scales (number of items contributing to each scale in parentheses): Physical/ADL (9), Psychosocial (9), Communication (3), Hobbies/Leisure (3), and Work/Finances (6). The score on each sub scale is expressed as a percentage of the total score possible, with a higher score indicating greater dissatisfaction with that domain of QOL. Maximal score of 100 indicates worse quality of life, while minimal score 0 corresponds to best quality of life.

  6. Mean Duration of Programming [ Time Frame: At Day 21 ]
    Duration of programming at the Informity programming visit compared to the most recent programming session prior to enrollment

  7. Change in Therapeutic Electrical Energy Delivered (TEED) at 3 Months [ Time Frame: At 3 months compared to baseline ]
    Change in TEED at the 3-month follow-up visit compared to baseline

  8. Change in Therapeutic Electrical Energy Delivered (TEED) at 6 Months [ Time Frame: At 6 months compared to baseline ]
    Change in TEED at the 6-month follow-up visit compared to baseline
