The right-to-left shunts (RLS) and white matter lesions (WMLs) are frequently observed in migraineurs and in patients with ischemic stroke. Previous studies have reported that the burden of WMLs did not increase with the intracardiac right-to-left shunt (RLS) in migraineurs. However, some types of WMLs are known to be associated ...

Visual disturbances (VDs) are reported with an average rate of 1.4% after foam sclerotherapy (FS). Some clinical clues indicate that they could correspond to migraine with aura (MA). To validate the hypothesis that VDs occurring after FS correspond to MA and are not transient ischaemic cerebro-vascular events. A prospective multicentre ...

In the present study, we have hypothesized that volume changes of the caudate nucleus, putamen, globus pallidus, hippocampus, thalamus, and lateral ventricle in newly-diagnosed, male PTSD patients without therapy are more pronounced in those with headaches. To confirm or reject our hypothesis, we have undertaken an extensive study of forty-nine ...

Tension-type headache (TTH) is a headache in which musculoskeletal impairments of the craniocervical region may play an important role in its pathogenesis. We investigated the presence of myofascial, postural and mechanical abnormalities in patients with frequent episodic and chronic tension-type headache (ETTH and CTTH, respectively). The study population consisted of ...

Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a key molecule in migraine pathogenesis. Intravenous CGRP infusion triggers delayed migraine-like attacks in patients with migraine without aura (MO). In contrast to patients with MO, in prior studies patients with familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) did not report more migraine-like attacks compared to controls. Whether ...
