SYNOPSIS 
Behavior Management of Recurrent Pain in Children
TLDR
The most common types of recurrent pain involve headaches and recurrent abdominal pain (RAP), and those most affected are typically school-aged children and adolescents who are usually healthy and pain-free between episodes. Expand
Migraine. II. Treatment.
TLDR
Because the headache sufferer is often anxious and frightened, a full explanation of the diagnostic and treatment approach can help allay inappropriate fear and prevent the development of the confidence necessary for successful treatment. Expand
An overview of the diagnosis and pharmacologic treatment of migraine.
Migraine, an episodic headache disorder, is one of the most common complaints encountered by primary-care physicians and neurologists. Nevertheless, it remains underdiagnosed and undertreated.Expand

TLDR
Prophylactic therapy of migraine with aura may be beneficial in preventing migrainous stroke, particularly patients with an aura of focal neurologic deficits. Expand
Interactions between migraine and stroke
TLDR
Prophylactic treatment should be administered to patients with frequent attacks of migraine with aura to prevent recurrence, and the role of patent foramen ovale closure remains controversial pending completion of controlled randomized trials. Expand
Stroke and migraine
TLDR
Prophylactic therapy of migraine with aura may be beneficial in preventing migrainous stroke, and other causes of ischemia are often identified in patients with migraine. Expand
Intraoperative Somatosensory and Motor Evoked Potential Recording and Electroencephalographic Monitoring Usefulness During Aneurysm Surgery
TLDR
This chapter reports the experience in using neurophysiopathological monitoring during aneurysm surgery with particular reference at the evoked potential and EEG changes in response to surgical and anaesthetic variables. Expand
Genetic Engineering Potential of Hairy Roots of Poppy (Papaver spp.) for Production of Secondary Metabolites, Phytochemistry, and In Silico Approaches
TLDR
This important plant has huge prospects in pharma industry, and on other hand, it is facing lots of challenges in the form of illicit trade, drug abuse, and biotic and abiotic stresses. Expand

A phenylethylamine oxidising defect in migraine
TLDR
In 1967, knowing that cheese is a common dietary trigger to migraine, Hanington fed tyramine, which it is known to contain, to affected subjects and by this action was able to initiate headache episodes. Expand
Antagonism of levodopa by papaverine.
TLDR
An antagonistic effect of papaverine on the therapeutic response to levodopa recently observed in several patients is called attention to. Expand
Cerebral arteriography during migraine prodrome and headache
TLDR
It is shown that the prodromal symptoms encountered in classic migraine usually result from vasoconstriction of certain intracranial vessels, while the headache itself results from dilation of other cranial Vessels, often branches of the external carotid artery. Expand
RETROPERITONEAL FIBROSIS IN PATIENTS TAKING METHYSERGIDE.
TLDR
After a year of receiving methysergide, the patient should discontinue taking it for at least three months and undergo suitable tests, and both patient and doctor should be alert for any evidence of retroperitoneal fibrosis. Expand

TLDR
Certain recent findings implicate the involvement of one or more of the biogenic vasoneuroactive substances, such as 5-HT (serotonin), bradykinin and the similar peptides, histamine, substance P, acetylcholine and catecholamines, in the pathophysiology of the vascular pain. Expand
