Abstract: Objectives: To assess the efficacy of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation for post-stroke non-fluent aphasia through a review of current literature. ; Methods: Three electronic databases (Medline, Embase & Scopus) were searched for articles. Relevant studies were further evaluated and studies that met inclusion criteria were reviewed. ; Results: The literature search yielded 4713 studies. Thirty-five articles were further evaluated to be included. Thirteen met all inclusion criteria and were chosen for review. The studies provide moderate to strong evidence that rTMS may be an effective treatment for non-fluent stroke aphasia. ; Conclusion: There are some strong studies evaluating the efficacy of rTMS in non-fluent stroke patients but further research is required to fully establish the usefulness of this treatment. Future directions and limitations are presented.
