BACKGROUND Extracranial arterial dilatation has been hypothesised to be the cause of pain in patients who have migraine without aura. To test that hypothesis, we aimed to measure extracranial and intracranial arteries during attacks of migraine without aura. METHODS In this cross-sectional study, we recruited patients aged 18-60 years from the Danish Headache Centre and via announcements on a Danish website. We did magnetic resonance angiography during spontaneous unilateral migraine attacks… Expand

Meningeal contribution to migraine pain: a magnetic resonance angiography study
The origin of migraine pain is unknown but possibly implicates the dura mater, which is pain sensitive in proximity to the meningeal arteries. Therefore, subtle changes in vessel calibre on the headExpand
Basilar Artery Lateral Displacement May Be Associated with Migraine with Aura
TLDR
BA lateral displacement may be associated with MWA as well as headache frequency, and this association does not appear to be mediated by cerebral hypoperfusion. Expand
Intradural artery dilation during experimentally induced migraine attacks.
TLDR
The study shows that the intradural middle meningeal artery and the middle cerebral artery are dilated during migraine induced by calcitonin gene-related peptide as well as sildenafil, and proposes that intadural vasculature is affected by migraine-driven activation of trigeminal afferents during migraine attacks.

TLDR
Current TCD studies of migraine and other headache disorders do not provide solid evidence for cerebral blood flow velocity changes during spontaneous attacks of migraine headache, and future development in more precise imaging methods may further elucidate the pathophysiological mechanisms in primary headaches. Expand
Magnetic resonance imaging in children presenting migraine with aura: Association of hypoperfusion detected by arterial spin labelling and vasospasm on MR angiography findings
TLDR
ASL and TOF-MRA are two totally non-invasive, easy-to-use MRI sequences for children in emergency settings and hypoperfusion associated with homolateral vasospasm may suggest a diagnosis of migraine with aura. Expand
Asynchronicity of Facial Blood Perfusion in Migraine
TLDR
The data suggest that migraine is associated with lateralization of blood perfusion and asynchronous blood pulsations in the facial area, which could be due to essential dysfunction of the autonomic vascular control in the face. Expand
Imaging of Migraine and Vestibular Migraine
TLDR
The potential of the use of neuroimaging techniques in patients suffering of vestibular migraine, in the context of the current knowledge on migraine, will be discussed. Expand
Migraine induced by hypoxia: an MRI spectroscopy and angiography study.
TLDR
Hypoxia induced migraine-like attacks with and without aura and dilated the cranial arteries in patients with migraine with aura, and hypoxia-induced attacks were not associated with altered concentration of glutamate or other metabolites. Expand

TLDR
Cerebral hemodynamics during different phases of the migraine attack demonstrate alterations in cerebral blood flow and perfusion, vessel caliber, cortical and sub-cortical function, underscoring that migraine pathophysiology is highly complex. Expand

Migraine headache is not associated with cerebral or meningeal vasodilatation--a 3T magnetic resonance angiography study.
TLDR
In contrast to widespread belief, migraine attacks are not associated with vasodilatation of cerebral or meningeal blood vessels and future anti-migraine drugs may not require vasoconstrictor action. Expand
Transcranial Doppler in Spontaneous Attacks of Migraine
TLDR
Comparisons of headache-free and spontaneous migraine measurements of blood flow velocity and the pulsatility index in the anterior cerebral artery, middle cerebral arteries, and posterior cerebral artery show consistent with constriction of resistance vessels in migraine with aura and dilatation of the vessels in migraines without aura. Expand
Lack of Asymmetry of Middle Cerebral Artery Blood Velocity in Unilateral Migraine
TLDR
It is found that the hypothesis that migraine is associated with vasodilation of the middle cerebral artery ipsilateral to the headache cannot be supported. Expand
Cerebral Blood Flow Velocities are Reduced During Attacks of Unilateral Migraine Without Aura
TLDR
The results suggest a 9% increase in middle cerebral artery lumen on the affected side during unilateral attacks of migraine without aura, which does not necessarily mean that arterial dilatation is the only or even the most significant cause of pain. Expand

TLDR
18 patients who underwent balloon inflation in the distal internal carotid artery and middle cerebral artery stem during embolization therapy for intracerebral arteriovenous malformations have reproducible patterns of headache during balloon inflation. Expand

TLDR
The data suggest that there is a highly functionally organized, somatotopically congruent trigeminal innervation of the cranial vessels, with a potent vasodilator effect of the ophthalmic division on the large intracranial vessels. Expand

TLDR
Spontaneous intracranial ICA dissection can cause ischemic stroke with or without subarachnoid hemorrhage and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of intrac Cranium internal carotid artery stenosis or occlusion, especially in young patients. Expand

TLDR
There is greater variability in the contractile state of the cranial arteries in subjects with migraine than in those who seldom or never have headache, and long-term studies were undertaken with improved amplifying and cranial vasomotor changes. Expand
Arterial responses during migraine headache
TLDR
The use of a new, high-resolution ultrasound machine to measure arterial size in 25 migraine patients with unilateral head pain showed that the lumen was wider on the painful than on the non-painful side during a migraine attack, suggesting that cephalic arteries may play a role in migraine pathogenesis.
