ARTICLE: Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation for improving function after stroke – The Cochrane Library – Full Text

The use of this technique has been investigated in the treatment of many conditions, including depression (Rodriguez-Martin 2002), tinnitus (Meng 2009), movement disorders (Edwards 2008) and obsessive compulsive disorder (Rodriguez-Martin 2003). Although there are a few published studies of the clinical efficacy of rTMS on motor recovery in stroke patients (Ameli 2009; Khedr 2009; Kirton 2008; Mansur 2005; Takeuchi 2009; Yozbatiran 2009), the potential therapeutic effect of rTMS has been controversial. The aim of this review was to assess systematically all the randomised controlled trials of rTMS on functional recovery in patients with stroke to provide the best available evidence.
