The objective of the study was to assess differences in proportion of large right-to-left shunt (RLS) and atrial septal characteristics between migraineurs and non-migraineurs referred for transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale (PF0). This retrospective study took place in a large metropolitan medical centre. The patients were migraineurs with aura(More)
Retrospective studies have shown improvement in migraines after patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure. To date, no study has evaluated whether the completeness of closure affects headache status; therefore, the objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of residual right-to-left shunt (RLS) on migraine symptoms after transcatheter PFO closure in(More)
The aim ofthis study was to examine whether f3-carotene protects against the immunosuppression seen with long-wave ultraviolet-light (UV-A) exposure. Free-living, healthy men, aged 19-39 y received 30 mg fl-carotene/d or a placebo while on a single-menu, low-carotenoid diet. After 28 d all subjects received 1 2 exposures to a UV-A/B light source over a 16-d(More)
M igraine is a heterogeneous primary headache disorder. 1 Migraine prevalence in the general population of the United States is Ϸ28 million people (13%) and results in significant costs to the healthcare system. 2 Aura consists of 1 or more focal neurological symptoms, such as visual, sensory, or speech disturbances, 1 and is present in Ϸ30% of(More)
OBJECT Transient delayed postoperative hyponatremia (DPH) after transsphenoidal surgery (TSS) is common and can have potentially devastating consequences. However, the true prevalence of transient symptomatic and asymptomatic DPH has not been studied in a large patient cohort with close and accurate follow-up. METHODS A retrospective analysis of a(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Comparison was performed between unilateral and bilateral power M-mode transcranial Doppler to detect right-to-left circulatory shunt (RLS). METHODS Recorded Doppler data from 87 patients with confirmed RLS referred for transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale were reanalyzed for embolic tracks (ET) counted from left and right(More)
