BACKGROUND Familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) is a rare, dominantly inherited subtype of migraine with transient hemiplegia during the aura phase. Mutations in at least three different genes can produce the FHM phenotype. The mutated FHM genes code for ion transport proteins that animal and cellular studies have associated with disturbed ion homeostasis,(More)
The recommended strategy for management of dyspepsia is empirical treatment with an H2-blocking drug, followed by endoscopy if the symptoms do not respond or recur. We compared two strategies for the management of dyspepsia--treatment based on the results of prompt endoscopy (group 1) and empirical H2-blocker treatment with diagnostic endoscopy only in(More)
OBJECTIVES Migraine aura is commonly considered to be a distinct phase of a migraine attack that precedes headache. The objective of the study was to examine a large number of prospectively recorded attacks of migraine with aura and determine the timing of headache and other migraine symptoms relative to aura. METHODS As part of a clinical trial we(More)
Changes in circulating triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), binding of thyroid hormones to plasma proteins (resin-T3 test), cortisol, and glucose were evaluated in sixteen patients undergoing abdominal hysterectomy. In eight of the patients afferent neurogenic impulses from the surgical area were blocked during and after operation by epidural analgesia.(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the present experiment was to evaluate functional biomechanics of the lesioned area in rabbits subjected to surgically placed vertebral lesions which may mimic a subluxation. It was hypothesized that wedging a bar between three adjacent vertebrae would lead to visual and palpatory alterations and also to a decrease in range of(More)
Objective To determine if acute migraine treatment outcome is different in patients with migraine with aura compared those with migraine without aura. Methods We extracted treatment outcome for migraine with and without aura from large-scale randomized clinical trials of two different drugs with proven efficacy in migraine treatment ; sumatriptan and(More)
BACKGROUND There is significant variability in the clinical presentation of migraine, both among patients, and between attacks in an individual patient. We examined clinical features of migraine with aura in a large group of patients enrolled in a clinical trial, and compared retrospective migraine attack characteristics reported upon enrollment in the(More)
Neurotoxic side effects of misonidazole with peripheral neuropathy was investigated in two series of patients. The first series consisted of eight patients with carcinoma of the pharynx, larynx or lung who, during treatment with misonidazole, developed peripheral neuropathy dominated by severe sensory symptoms and signs localized mainly to the lower(More)
