In order to assess the prevalence and characteristics of cephalic pain in internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection, and to compare clinical and angiographic features of patients with painful and non-painful dissections, we observed 65 patients with angiographically diagnosed extracranial ICA dissection from 1972 to 1990. Forty-eight patients (74%)(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether migraine is a risk factor for ischaemic stroke in young women. DESIGN A case-control study. SETTING Five hospitals in Paris and suburbs. SUBJECTS 72 women aged under 45 with ischaemic stroke and 173 controls randomly selected from women hospitalised in the same centres. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Ischaemic stroke confirmed(More)
PURPOSE To report the ophthalmologic symptoms and signs associated with extracranial internal carotid artery dissection. METHODS One hundred forty-six consecutive patients with extracranial internal carotid artery dissection were evaluted; 29 were studied retrospectively from 1972 to 1984 and 117 prospectively from 1985 to 1997. RESULTS Sixty-two(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cerebral infarction is the most frequent and severe manifestation of extracranial internal carotid artery dissection. However, few data exist on the precise time course of symptoms preceding the onset of stroke. METHODS We studied 80 consecutive patients (29 retrospectively, 51 prospectively) with angiographically diagnosed(More)
BACKGROUND Ischemic optic neuropathy (ION) is an infarction of the anterior or, less frequently, posterior part of the optic nerve, usually due to a disease of small arteries supplying the optic nerve. Carotid stenosis or occlusions are rare causes, and among them, carotid dissections have been so far reported in only 5 cases. METHODS We describe 4(More)
A case control study technique was employed to test for an association between non-traumatic cervical artery dissection and several possible risk factors. A significant positive association was shown with migraine, independent of type and treatment regimen. No such relationship was found with smoking history, hypertension or past oral contraceptive use.(More)
