Treating a result rather than a cause. There are also operations to kill the nerves in the area you're talking about. This too may stop the pain but it doesn't treat the cause.
Killing the nerves stops the pain signals. Doesn't blocking blood vessels kill tissue by starving it of oxygen?
You need to go deeper to find the "cause" of cluster headaches. When you find and fix that, then you have the CURE.
