Effectiveness of a second deep TMS in depression: A brief report

Rosenberg, O., Isserles, M., Levkovitz, Y., Kotler, M., Zangen, A., & Dannon, P. N. (2011). Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology and Biological Psychiatry, 35(4), 1041-1044.

This study examined the effect of the Brainsway® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil stimulation on depressed patients which previously benefited from the treatment but suffered from deterioration. The patients were given 20 daily sessions of stimulation, resulting in a significant decrease in HDRS, HARS and BDI scores, although at a lesser rate compared to the decrease during the first Deep TMS treatment period. In this study it was demonstrated that a second treatment period of brain stimulation using the H-coil significantly alleviates depressive symptoms.
