We investigated the effects of apomorphine administration at two different doses (2-10 micrograms/kg, s.c.) in 35 migraineurs in headache-free period and in 20 age-matched healthy control subjects, with and without pretreatment with domperidone. Neither patients or controls complained of headache at either dose, whereas at the dose of 10 micrograms/kg(More)
We compared digital intra-arterial angiography and transcranial Doppler sonography in acute cerebral ischemia as part of a wider study on a continuous series of 48 patients with acute focal cerebral ischemia in the carotid territory, observed within 4 hours of the onset of symptoms. The most significant Doppler findings of the middle cerebral artery(More)
The Backus-Gilbert (BG) method is an inversion method for solving integral equations. We show that, given a set of idealized &function kernels in the BG formalism, it is possible to derive an interpolation formula for a band-limited function very closely comparable with the perfect interpolation formula given by the Shannon theorem.
Serum prolactin is increased during chronic flunarizine treatment of patients suffering from migraine. In order to clarify the role of calcium in control of the secretion of anterior pituitary hormones, a study has now been made of the effects of chronic nimodipine and propranolol treatment of migraine patients on prolactin (PRL), luteinizing hormone (LH)(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate by means of transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasonography how many spontaneous reperfusions of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) occurred during the first week after onset of acute ischemic stroke in the carotid territory. METHODS TCD examination, computed tomographic scan, and arterial digital(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Our aim in this study was to compare headache-free and spontaneous migraine measurements of blood flow velocity and the pulsatility index in the anterior cerebral artery, middle cerebral artery, and posterior cerebral artery. METHODS Thirty-one patients (nine having experienced migraine with aura and 22 migraine without aura) were(More)
Nitroglycerin, a vasodilating agent, was administered sublingually in migraine without aura patients and in healthy volunteers. Systolic, diastolic and time-mean flow velocity and pulsatility index, were measured by transcranial Doppler sonography in the major intracranial arteries before and after nitroglycerin administration. Following nitroglycerin(More)
