Treatment of Migraine by Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

A.A. Beliaiev, Ye.I. Isaikova, A.S. Son

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.
