Therapeutic trial of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation after acute ischemic stroke.

Author information

Department of Neurology, Assiut University Hospital, Assiut, Egypt.


Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) or sham stimulation was given over the motor cortex daily for 10 days to two randomly assigned groups of 26 patients with acute ischemic stroke. Patients otherwise continued their normal treatment. Disability scales measured before rTMS, at the end of the last rTMS session, and 10 days later showed that real rTMS improved patients' scores more than sham.
