To the Editor The network meta-analysis of various repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) modalities in major depressive disorder by Brunoni et al1 is fairly comprehensive, given the limited criteria for article selection used in this analysis. Such an approach could enhance understanding of rTMS efficacy and tolerability; however, if not implemented with great care, it can also lead to distorted conclusions.
