Los Angeles, CA (Sheraton Gateway Hotel at LAX)
On July 11, 2014 CTAF examined various treatment options for migraine headaches. CTAF's review included evidence on the use of Botox for prevention and on the use of opioids for treatment in the emergency room. Also briefly reviewed were a new device for the prevention of migraines (Cefaly) and one for the treatment of migraines (SpringTMS by eNeura). CTAF’s public deliberation of the evidence will provide clarity and guidance to clinicians, insurers, and patients confronted with decisions on treatment of migraines.
