The newly recommended evidence-based new DC/TMD protocol is appropriate for use in both clinical and research settings and includes both a valid screener for detecting any pain-related TMD as well as valid diagnostic criteria for differentiating the most common pain- related TMD.
The Global Burden of Headache: A Documentation of Headache Prevalence and Disability Worldwide
The calculations indicate that the disability attributable to tension-type headache is larger worldwide than that due to migraine, which would bring headache disorders into the 10 most disabling conditions for the two genders, and into the five most disabling for women.
Epidemiology and comorbidity of headache
Muscle tenderness and pressure pain thresholds in headache. A population study
Stimulation of the sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) for cluster headache treatment. Pathway CH-1: A randomized, sham-controlled study
On-demand SPG stimulation using the ATI Neurostimulation System is an effective novel therapy for CCH sufferers, with dual beneficial effects, acute pain relief and observed attack prevention, and has an acceptable safety profile compared to similar surgical procedures.
Idiopathic intracranial hypertension: consensus guidelines on management
The aim was to capture interdisciplinary expertise from a large group of clinicians, reflecting practice from across the UK and further, to inform subsequent development of a national consensus…
Understanding idiopathic intracranial hypertension: mechanisms, management, and future directions
What is New About Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension? An Updated Review of Mechanism and Treatment
An updated overview of this potentially disabling disease which may show a future escalating incidence due to obesity is provided.
Expanding the taxonomy of the diagnostic criteria for temporomandibular disorders.
The expanded TMDs taxonomy offers an integrated approach to clinical diagnosis and provides a framework for further research to operationalise and test the proposed taxonomy and diagnostic criteria.
Temporomandibular disorders: Old ideas and new concepts
The etiology is complex and still not clearly understood, but several biological and psychosocial risk factors for TMD have been identified and several studies indicate that patients with TMD improve with a combination of noninvasive therapies, including behavior therapy, pharmacotherapy, physical therapy, and occlusal appliances.
