Acute ischemic stroke or migraine with aura? Triage considerations.

The complex relationship between acute ischemic stroke and migraine with aura, andcritical nursing interventions, and critical nursing interventions are discussed.

Acupuncture and Its Role in the Treatment of Migraine Headaches

An overview of the current understanding of both acupuncture and migraine and of current research investigating the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating migraine and chronic migraine is provided.

The Vitamin D Role in Preventing Primary Headache in Adult and Pediatric Population

The aim of this review is to summarize the data collected on headache prophylaxis with vitamin D comparing the effects of vitamin D in pediatric and adult populations.

What is new in migraine management in children and young people?

Recent publications on the use and effectiveness of old therapies including nutraceuticals, such as riboflavin, vitamin D, magnesium, melatonin and talking therapies, and electroceuticals, that is, therapeutic electric devices, are found, with evidence for their effectiveness in children lacking.

Myocardial infarction, stroke and cardiovascular mortality among migraine patients: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Subgroup analysis of migraine with aura found a further increase in risk of myocardial infarction and both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, as well as improved substantial statistical heterogeneity.

Cortical Thickness in Migraine: A Coordinate-Based Meta-Analysis

The CBMA detected no statistically significant consistency of CTh alterations in patients with migraine relative to HCs, and the result was not confounded by age, gender, aura, attack frequency per month, and illness duration.

Anticorpos monoclonais para o tratamento de enxaqueca (migrânea)

A comercialização desses medicamentos indica resultados promissores no tratamento e na prevenção of episódios de enxaqueca, mostrando-se como grande alternativa para o tratimento preventivo para a enxaaqueca e com redução significativa dos sintomas post-drome.



Aura and Other Neurologic Dysfunction in or with Migraine

Migraine can present with a wide range of neurological symptoms and can cause confusion, tremor, and/or tremor-like symptoms.

CGRP and the Trigeminal System in Migraine

The goal of this narrative review is to provide an overview of migraine pathophysiology, with an emphasis on the role of calcitonin gene‐related peptide (CGRP) within the context of the

On the Temporal Relationship Between Throbbing Migraine Pain and Arterial Pulse

The characteristic throbbing quality of migraine pain is often attributed to the periodic activation of trigeminovascular sensory afferents triggered by the distension of cranial arteries during systole, but direct evidence for this model has been elusive.

Thalamic sensitization transforms localized pain into widespread allodynia

It is hypothesized that transformation of headache into whole‐body allodynia/hyperalgesia during a migraine attack is mediated by sensitization of thalamic neurons that process converging sensory impulses from the cranial meninges and extracephalic skin.

The migraine postdrome.

The disability related to migraine is not limited to the headache phase and pans out to include the postdrome phase, which needs to be studied more to improve overall understanding of migraine mechanisms and also treat the concurrent symptoms better.

Hypothalamus as a mediator of chronic migraine

The data corroborate the fact that the hypothalamus plays a crucial role in the pathophysiology of migraine chronification and acute pain stage of migraineurs and suggest the more posterior part of the hypothalamic region seems to play an important role in attack generation and migraine chronisation.

Atypical Resting‐State Functional Connectivity of Affective Pain Regions in Chronic Migraine

Atypical resting‐state functional connectivity of affective pain‐processing brain regions may associate with chronic migraineurs' painful intolerances to somatosensory, visual, olfactory, and auditory stimuli during and between migraine attacks.

Sensitization of the Trigeminovascular Pathway: Perspective and Implications to Migraine Pathophysiology

The evidence is summarized that support the view that activation of the trigeminovascular pathway contribute to the headache phase of a migraine attack, that the development of throbbing in the initial phase of migraine is mediated by sensitization of peripheral trigeminavascular neurons that innervate the meninges, and that cephalic allodynia is propelled by sensitized neurons in the spinal trigeminal nucleus.

Intact blood−brain barrier during spontaneous attacks of migraine without aura: a 3T DCE‐MRI study

The integrity of the blood−brain barrier (BBB) has been questioned in migraine, but BBB permeability has never been investigated during spontaneous migraine attacks. In the present study, BBB
