New Cure For Chronic Headache by adetibabamidele(m): 12:02am On Jan 01, 2014
This is the Medscape Neurology Minute. I am Dr. Alan Jacobs. Headache researchers presenting at the Anesthesiology™ 2013 Annual Meeting presented safety and long-term efficacy data concerning electrical peripheral nerve stimulation therapy. The treatment involved implantation of a thin, insulated wire into the occipital or supraorbital nerves to deliver electrical pulses to block pain. The study monitored 46 patients who received peripheral nerve stimulation between 2005 and 2012. Follow-up phone interviews were conducted to determine subsequent headache intensity and frequency per month, complications, and satisfaction with the treatment. The study found that average headache intensity was reduced by 70%, the average number of headache days per month decreased from 28 to 14, and 90% of patients were satisfied with the treatment. One patient reported more than 8 years of reduced headache intensity and frequency. Complications included electrode migration, equipment problems, and infection. The investigators concluded that as physicians gain experience with implantation techniques, complications will decrease, and this will be a breakthrough therapy for chronic headache sufferers. This has been the Medscape Neurology Minute. I'm Dr. Alan Jacobs.
