Evaluation of Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) H-Coil in the Treatment of Major Depression
This study is evaluating the safety and feasibility of the novel deep TMS H-coil designs in the treatment of resistant major depression in an open study using two different H-coil designs.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Decompression external to the body, most often the slow lessening of external pressure on the whole body (especially in caisson workers, deep sea divers, and persons who ascend to great heights) to prevent DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS. It includes also sudden accidental decompression, but not surgical (local) decompression or decompression applied through body openings.
Depressive states usually of moderate intensity in contrast with major depression present in neurotic and psychotic disorders.
The prototypical tricyclic antidepressant. It has been used in major depression, dysthymia, bipolar depression, attention-deficit disorders, agoraphobia, and panic disorders. It has less sedative effect than some other members of this therapeutic group.
A propylamine formed from the cyclization of the side chain of amphetamine. This monoamine oxidase inhibitor is effective in the treatment of major depression, dysthymic disorder, and atypical depression. It also is useful in panic and phobic disorders.

An MAO inhibitor that is effective in the treatment of major depression, dysthymic disorder, and atypical depression. It also is useful in the treatment of panic disorder and the phobic disorders. (From AMA, Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p311)
This study will investigate the use of deep brain stimulation (DBS) to reduce symptom severity and enhance the quality of life for patients with treatment-refractory major depression.
In this study efficacy and safety of deep brain stimulation of the cingulate cortex in 15 patients with treatment resistant major depression will be investigated. In addition, the stress a...
Evaluation of the novel deep TMS H-Coil design as an augmentation measure in the treatment of medication resistant major depression. Stimulation is administered with and without cognitive-...
The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate the safety, feasibility and efficacy of chronic, high frequency stimulation of the subgenual cingulate white matter (Cg25WM) using the ANS...
Depression is the most common psychiatric disorder. - 3-5% of a given population has major depression. - Less than 50% of the depressed in Denmark are diagnosed with major...
INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study is to compare the long-term (≥12 months) angiographic follow-up of aneurysms treated with polymer polyglycolic-lactic acid (PGLA)-coated coils versus bare pl...
Transcatheter closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) with coils is accepted as an alternative to surgical ligation. We evaluated whether flow gradient across PDA, obtained by Doppler echocardiograp...
The aim of this study was to investigate whether the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in transverse images acquired from spine phased array coils is improved by deactivating coils distant from the imaging...
Serotonin transporter (SERT) and dopamine transporter (DAT) levels differ in patients with major depression who are in a depressed state in comparison with healthy controls. The aim of this study was...
The Major Depression Inventory (MDI) was used to estimate the value of routine medical interviews in diagnosing major depression among patients receiving peginterferon alfa-2a and ribavirin therapy fo...
