Cervical Spinal Cord Stimulation

High cervical epidural neurostimulation has been assessed in seven patients with medically intractable chronic cluster headache.[77] Headache frequency improved from six to 1.4 attacks a day and intensity reduced from 7.4 to 4.5 on a ten-point scale. This rather invasive procedure deserves further investigation to establish both efficacy and tolerability.
