Brainsway Deep TMS Therapy - for Brain Disorder Treatment

Response to deep TMS in depressive patients with previous electroconvulsive treatment

This study examines the efficacy of Brainsway Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) in patients with treatment resistant depression who failed to benefit from both pharmacotherapy and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). 6 patients underwent 5 high-frequency Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation sessions per week, for 4 weeks. In this setup, one third of patients responded the treatment, including one that exhibited full remission. The results indicate that a portion of treatment-resistant depressed patients, including ECT-resistant patients, can benefit from Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.
