Efficacy of hypothalamic stimulation for chronic drug-resistant cluster headache.

Abstract

The study of Seijo et al. recently published in this journal (1) provides further convincing evidence that posterior hypothalamic stimulation can be an effective treatment for carefully selected patients with drug-resistant chronic cluster headache. All five patients had a severe condition that had not responded to either drugs or previous surgical treatments. A number of aspects of the study deserve closer examination.
