Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (DC/TMD) for Clinical and Research Applications: recommendations of the International RDC/TMD Consortium Network* and Orofacial Pain Special
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. Expand
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. Expand
Epidemiology and comorbidity of headache
Renewed recognition of the burden of headache and increased scientific interest have led to a better understanding of the risk factors and greater insight into the pathogenic mechanisms, which might lead to improved prevention strategies and the early identification of patients who are at risk. Expand
Muscle tenderness and pressure pain thresholds in headache. A population study
Tenderness and pressure pain thresholds were largely normal indicating normal pain processing and contradicting the idea that tension‐type headache mainly is due to generally increased pain sensitivity, while muscular factors are of no primary importance in migraine. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Cephalic muscle tenderness and pressure pain threshold in a general population
Tenderness and pain thresholds in pericranial muscles were studied in a general population and forms the neccesary basis for evaluating the importance of muscle tenderness in headache subjects and other selected groups. Expand
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 consensusExpand
Neuromodulation of chronic headaches: position statement from the European Headache Federation
Any neurostimulation device should only be used in patients with medically intractable syndromes from tertiary headache centers either as part of a valid study or have shown to be effective in such controlled studies with an acceptable side effect profile. Expand
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. Expand
