Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Character of usability and acceptance of the ATI Neurostimulation System, as evaluated by the following: [ Time Frame: Through study completion ]
    1. Implantation of ATI Neurostimulator within the pterygopalatine fossa
    2. Explant and lead-revision rates and reasons

  • Characterization of patient response to therapy, as evaluated by the following: [ Time Frame: Through study completion ]
    1. Patient acceptance of the therapy
    2. Responder Analysis, where a responder is any patient who achieves Effective Therapy in at least 50% of evaluable attacks, a 50% attack frequency attack decrease relative to Baseline, or both
    3. Disability and Quality of Life as characterized by the HIT-6 and SF-36v2 compared to Baseline
    4. Subject Overall Evaluation of Therapy
    5. Change in use of acute medications compared to Baseline
    6. Change in preventive medication use and work status compared to Baseline

Estimated Enrollment: 150
Study Start Date: September 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2020 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Subjects who meet the CE marked labeling for cluster headache for the ATI Neurostimulation System.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject meets CE marked labeling for cluster headache.
  • Subject's typical cluster headache bouts last a minimum of 16 weeks, in the opinion of the Investigator.
  • Subject agrees to maintain current preventive headache medication regimens (no change in type, frequency or dose except to manage tolerability) from Study Enrollment through the completion of the Therapy Evaluation Period.
  • Subject has the ability to read, comprehend and to reliably record information as required by the Protocol.
  • Subject is able to provide written informed consent prior to participation in the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject has had a change in type, dosage or frequency of taking preventive headache medications < one (1) month prior to Study Enrollment.
  • Per the CE marked labeling: In the opinion of the Investigator, subject has bony facial deformities, inappropriate surgical anatomy or has had facial surgery in the surgical area on the same side as the planned surgery that would prevent the proper placement of the ATI Neurostimulator.
  • Subject has other significant pain problem that might confound the study assessments in the opinion of the Investigator.
