FDA approves new magnet device to treat migraines

from Medical Xpress

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first device aimed at easing the pain of migraines preceded by aura — sensory disturbances that occur just before an attack. About a third of migraine sufferers experience auras. The Cerena Transcranial Magnetic Stimulator would be obtained through prescription, the FDA said in a statement released. Patients use both hands to hold the device against the back of their head and press a button so that the device can release a pulse of magnetic energy. This pulse stimulates the brain's occipital cortex, which may stop or ease migraine pain. more
