Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Clinical Applications: Therapeutics

The number and type of neuropsychiatric conditions being treated by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is ever increasing. In addition, the parameters utilized to treat these conditions are ever evolving. In this chapter, we explore the evidence concerning the efficacy of TMS to treat a number of psychiatric and physiological conditions: including depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, post traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain, tinnitus, stroke, and Parkinson’s disease. In addition, we outline the most commonly utilized protocols and parameters to treat each of the above conditions.

This study aimed to analyze the effect of individual differences and family variables on life satisfaction and depression in the oldest old compared with the young-old. A total of 1,799 cases from an 8-year period of the Korean Welfare Panel Study (2006-2013) were analyzed. A key finding was that life satisfaction significantly increased with time for the two groups of older adults while depression decreased. Moreover, family relationship satisfaction significantly affected both life satisfaction and depression in both groups. However, its impact was stronger for the oldest old. Finally, individual difference variables, th...

Authors: Ishihara Y, Sugawa T, Kaneko H, Hiroshima-Hamanaka K, Amano A, Umakoshi H, Tsuiki M, Kusakabe T, Satoh-Asahara N, Shimatsu A, Tagami T Abstract We herein report two cases of patients with thyroid storm with a delayed diagnosis due to psychosis. The patients were a 63-year-old woman with bipolar II disorder and a 37-year-old man with major depressive disorder. The psychoses in both patients were well controlled with medication. Although they both showed symptoms of thyrotoxicosis, the symptoms were ignored, presumably because the psychological manifestations of worsening of psychosis and thyroid storm are s...

Authors: Aoki Y, Sakai Y, Kimura T, Yamaoka T, Maekawa S, Maekawa J, Sano M, Matsuno K, Ishibashi I Abstract Spontaneous renal artery dissection (SRAD) is a rare entity and the management of this disease has not been established. A 54-year-old man presented with severe flank pain, and contrast-enhanced computed tomography images suggested SRAD in his left renal artery. After two weeks of conservative treatment, stents were placed in the renal artery. The pre- and post-procedural renal function was independently assessed by renography. After stenting, his left renal function recovered from the renal failure pattern....

MDS-associated IBD frequently demonstrates a complicated course. We herein report the first case with MDS-associated IBD that was successfully treated with ustekinumab (UST), an anti-interleukin (IL) 12/23p40 monoclonal antibody. A 63-year-old man with a 7-year history of MDS was referred for examination of diarrhea,...

Authors: Fujita Y, Asano T, Sato S, Furuya MY, Temmoku J, Matsuoka N, Kobayashi H, Watanabe H, Suzuki E, Koga T, Endo Y, Kawakami A, Migita K Abstract We herein report a Japanese patient with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) who developed the clinical manifestations of mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) and Sjögren's syndrome. The patient was a 36-year-old woman presenting with a periodic short-duration (2-3 days) fever and pleural pain. An MEFV gene analysis detected a complex allele mutation (P369S/R408Q) in exon 3 of the MEFV gene. Serological and clinical data showed the coexistence of MCTD and Sj&ou...

Authors: Umemoto G, Furuya H Abstract Various methods of rehabilitation for dysphagia have been suggested through the experience of treating stroke patients. Although most of these patients recover their swallowing function in a short period, dysphagia in Parkinson's disease (PD) and Parkinson-related disorder (PRD) degenerates with disease progression. Muscle rigidity and bradykinesia are recognized as causes of swallowing dysfunction, and it is difficult to easily apply the strategies for stroke to the rehabilitation of dysphagia in PD patients. Disease severity, weight loss, drooling, and dementia are important ...

Conclusion VCE is very useful for confirming gastrointestinal involvement in IgAV and may be used to determine the timing of steroid therapy initiation. We recommend performing VCE when IgAV is suspected in patients with gastrointestinal symptoms. PMID: 30996162 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
