Abstract

This article describes examination of 10 patients with migraine, in whom routine medical treatment was ineffective and in whom we applied high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation of the dominant dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. After using high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, we have noted a decrease in the incidence of migraine attacks by 31.8 %; level of depressive signs — by 31.7 %; improvement of daily activities — by 23.7 %; reduction in hea-dache severity — by 6.9 %. Treatment outcomes are encouraging. For further development of transcranial magnetic stimulation as a treatment modality for migraine, it is necessary to continue researches in this direction.
