Neurology Group Lists Procedures That May Be Unneeded
Date:3/8/2013

conditions that prevent the use of migraine-specific treatments or for patients for whom these treatments don't work.
  • Do not prescribe interferon-beta or glatiramer acetate to patients with disability from progressive, non-relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis. These medications, often prescribed for MS, do not prevent the development of permanent disability in progressive forms of the disease. However, they do have frequent side effects that may negatively affect quality of life, and increase costs as well.
  • Do not recommend carotid endarterectomy for people who have narrowing of the carotid arteries in the neck but have no symptoms, unless the patient's risk of complication is less than 3 percent. Carotid endarterectomy is a type of surgery meant to reduce the risk of stroke.
  • The recommendations were published online recently in the journal Neurology.
