New Migraine Prevention Device That Is Stimulating But Non-Invasive
Scientific research is demonstrating some hopeful relief methods for treating migraine headaches.
Researchers at the Mayo clinic in coordination with a number of academic headache centers across the country conducted a study that looked at the effectiveness of a “single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation device” to prevent migraines.
The eNura SpringTMS Post-Market Observational U.S Study of Migraine study, labeled ESPOUSE, asked patients to administer four pulses in the morning and four at night over a period of three months in order to prevent and treat migraines.
“The migraine brain is hyperexcitable, and basic science studies have demonstrated modulation of neuronal excitability with this treatment modality,” said Dr. Amaal Starling, a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic, who was the first author of the study.
Our study demonstrated that the four pulses emitted from this device twice daily reduce the frequency of headache days by about three days per month, and 46 percent of patients had at least 50 percent or less migraine attacks per month on the treatment protocol.
This data is clinically significant. Based on the current study and prior studies in acute migraine attack treatment, sTMS not only helps to stop a migraine attack, but it also helps prevent them.
“For certain patients, treatment options for migraines, such as oral medications, are not effective, well-tolerated or preferred,” Dr. Starling added. “The sTMS may be a great option for these patients and allow doctors to better meet their unique needs.”
The FDA had already approved the sTMS device for use in the acute treatment of migraines with auras. Now, the FDA has approved the same device to prevent migraines in general.
