Importantly, no subjects discontinued treatment due to adverse events. 2) Transcranial magnetic stimulation may have a role in the acute treatment of migraine with and without aura. Given its efficacy as an acute treatment, the SpringTMS® stimulation device may be of potential benefit in patients who are at risk of overusing acute medications or in whom acute medications are ineffective. At present, transcranial magnetic stimulation does not appear effective in the prevention of migraine. Mechanisms of Action of Neurostimulation Peripheral Neurostimulation The mechanisms by which peripheral neurostimulation modulates an antinociceptive response is still poorly understood.
Following a median follow-up period of 18 months, 10 of the 14 patients reported an improvement. Of those with benefit, three had a more than 90% reduction in attack frequency and a further three had a reduction of between 40 and 60%. As in the previous series by Magis et al. , a delay of weeks was seen until clinical response and attacks were seen to return within days when the devices were turned off. 4). In 2011, Fontaine and colleagues reported on their cohort of 13 chronic cluster headache patients undergoing ONS .
2) On the basis of currently available evidence, DBS should be considered for medically intractable chronic cluster headache (and potentially other TACs) that have proven resistant to all other treatments, including other forms of neurostimulation. Due to the risks of surgery, implants should only be undertaken in highly specialised units and guidelines state that patients should be managed by a multidisciplinary team including psychologists . Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation It has been proposed that patients with migraine have a state of abnormal brain hyperexcitability and this theory is supported by transcranial magnetic stimulation studies [7, 9].
