Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in the Treatment of Bipolar Depression: Experience From a Clinical Setting.

Summary of "Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in the Treatment of Bipolar Depression: Experience From a Clinical Setting."

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a noninvasive Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved treatment for unipolar treatment-resistant depression (TRD). rTMS has been utilized clinically to treat bipolar TRD; however, there remains a lack of evidence and support for effectively utilizing this intervention for bipolar TRD. We retrospectively analyzed data from a group of patients who were treated with rTMS for unipolar or bipolar TRD and describe a case example to further delineate management techniques for employing rTMS in the treatment of bipolar TRD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.

Measurable changes in activities in the CEREBRAL CORTEX upon a stimulation. A change in cortical excitability as measured by various techniques (e.g., TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION) is associated with brain disorders.

A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.

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 technique that involves the use of electrical coils on the head to generate a brief magnetic field which reaches the CEREBRAL CORTEX. It is coupled with ELECTROMYOGRAPHY response detection to assess cortical excitability by the threshold required to induce MOTOR EVOKED POTENTIALS. This method is also used for BRAIN MAPPING, to study NEUROPHYSIOLOGY, and as a substitute for ELECTROCONVULSIVE THERAPY for treating DEPRESSION. Induction of SEIZURES limits its clinical usage.
