Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of occipital nerve stimulation (ONS) using the Boston Scientific Corporation (BSC) Precision™ System in the management of intractable chronic migraine, when used in conjunction with anti-migraine medications.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Migraine Disorders Device: Occipital nerve stimulator Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Initial reports of managing migraine headache with ONS described a technique in which electrical leads were implanted in the subcutaneous space transverse to the occipital nerve, in the back of the head, under x-ray guidance. The leads were tunneled under the skin to an implantable pulse generator (IPG) implanted in the chest wall or abdomen. The OPTIMISE Trial is designed to be a pivotal study of the Boston Scientific PRECISION neurostimulation system, when the system is used for ONS. The PRECISION System has been previously been approved for Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment
The treatment is continuous stimulation with an occipital nerve stimulator, specifically the BSC Precision™ ONS System for 6 months post-randomization
Device: Occipital nerve stimulator
Electrical stimulation of the greater occipital nerve
Other Name: Boston Scientific Precision System

Active Comparator: Control
The control is intermittent stimulation for 20 seconds every 90 minutes with an occipital nerve stimulator, specifically the BSC Precision™ ONS System for 6 months post-randomization
Device: Occipital nerve stimulator
Electrical stimulation of the greater occipital nerve
Other Name: Boston Scientific Precision System




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in the Number of Moderate-to-severe Headache Days Per Month [ Time Frame: from Baseline to 6 months post-randomization ]

    A moderate-to-severe headache day will be defined as any calendar day with:

    1. headache pain that lasts ≥4 hours AND peak severity of moderate or severe intensity

      OR

    2. a subject taking a triptan or ergot, regardless of headache pain duration or severity

    The Baseline number was calculated as the total count of eDiary calendar days which meet the definition of a moderate-to-severe headache day during the first 30 calendar days of eDiary entries if the eDiary contained ≥70% of data. The 6 months post-randomization number was calculated as the total count of eDiary calendar days which meet the definition of a moderate-to-severe headache day during the 30 calendar days of eDiary entries immediately preceding the subject's 6-Month Visit if the eDiary contained ≥70% of data.
