ROSA, Moacyr Alexandro; ODEBRECHT, Marina; RIGONATTI, Sérgio Paulo  e  MARCOLIN, Marco Antonio. Magnetic convulsive therapy: seizure induction with TMS. Rev. psiquiatr. clín. [online]. 2004, vol.31, n.5, pp.262-265. ISSN 1806-938X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-60832004000500011.

The induced seizure through Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), also called magnetic seizure therapy, is a new technique that has been used for the treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders, specially depression. It uses a magnetic stimulator that generates a magnetic field that is applied over the patient's skull with a coil. This article reviews the eleven cases in which the seizure was induced deliberately for therapeutic purposes. Although just in it's beginning, it is a technique that can substitute electrically induced seizures (electroconvulsive therapy), if it shows the same efficacy and a more safe profile related to side effects and possible complications, taking the fact that the stimuli are more focused.

Palavras-chave : Seizures; magnetic stimulation; treatment; depression.
