Current Pain and Headache Reports; Maxey BS, Pruitt JW et. al.

Mar 15th, 2022 - This paper will examine the efficacy and safety of occipital nerve stimulation as a non-pharmacological alternative treatment for migraine. Migraine is characterized as a primary headache disorder with possible premonitory and aura phases, both of...

Effectiveness and acceptability of noninvasive brain and nerve stimulation techniques f...
The Journal of Headache and Pain; Cheng YC, Zeng BY et. al.

Feb 22nd, 2022 - Current pharmacologic prophylactic strategies for migraine have exhibited limited efficacy, with response rates as low as 40%-50%. In addition to the limited efficacy, the acceptability of those pharmacologic prophylactic strategies were unaccepta...

Neuromodulation for Chronic Daily Headache.
Current Pain and Headache Reports; Coppola G, Magis D et. al.

Feb 8th, 2022 - We reviewed the literature that explored the use of central and peripheral neuromodulation techniques for chronic daily headache (CDH) treatment. Although the more invasive deep brain stimulation (DBS) is effective in chronic cluster headache (CCH...

Evaluation of Occipital Nerve Stimulation in Intractable Occipital Neuralgias

Oct 11th, 2021 - Medically intractable pain caused by occipital neuralgia can be very difficult to control with traditional pain management. Peripheral nerve stimulation which is used in migraines and cluster headache can be an alternative for these patients with ...

Treatment of Chronic Cluster Headache With TENS and ONS

Sep 17th, 2021 - The study is an investigator-initiated, prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled, double blind clinical trial that aims to investigate the effect of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and occipital nerve stimulation (ONS) on att...

Occipital Nerve Stimulation (ONS) for Migraine: OPTIMISE

Nov 13th, 2020 - Initial reports of managing migraine headache with ONS described a technique in which electrical leads were implanted in the subcutaneous space transverse to the occipital nerve, in the back of the head, under x-ray guidance. The leads were tunnel...

Occipital Nerve Stimulation for the Treatment of Chronic Migraine Headache.

Oct 12th, 2011 - The therapy under investigation involves a Medtronic neurostimulation device which delivers electrical impulses via insulated lead wires placed under the skin near the occipital nerves at the base of the head.

Occipital Nerve Stimulation to Treat Chronic Headaches

Sep 5th, 2008 - Chronic migraine and chronic cluster headaches are among the most disabling medical illnesses, inflicting severe functional impairment. These headache subtypes are particularly resistant to current treatment modalities, with the majority of chroni...
