Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a consolidated procedure for the treatment of depression, with several meta-analyses demonstrating its efficacy. Theta-burst TMS is a modification of TMS with similar efficacy and shorter session duration.
The geriatric population has many comorbidities and a high prevalence of depression, but few clinical trials are conducted specifically for this age group. Theta Burst TMS could be an option in this population, offering the advantages of few side effects and no pharmacological interactions.
