Efficacy of ultrasound-guided greater occipital nerve pulsed radiofrequency therapy in chronic refractory migraine.


Ultrasound (US) guided pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) therapy can be used on the greater occipital nerve (GON) in patients with chronic migraine (CM) who are unresponsive to conservative treatments. We aimed to demonstrate the change in pain intensity, duration of migraine episodes, frequency of attacks, migraine disability, depression, and sleep disturbance scores before and after treatment in patients with CM who underwent US-guided GON PRF and the effectiveness of treatment.
