Developmental innervation of cranial dura mater and migraine headache: A narrative literature review
Migraine headache prevalence, etiology, and clinical presentations change from childhood to adulthood. Dural innervation plays a role in headache symptomatology, but the changes in innervation duringExpand

TLDR
Successful treatment entails low-dose medication with careful titration and monitoring of headache frequency and Behavioral strategies are important and should be part of any comprehensive headache management plan. Expand
Hypertension Secondary to Amitriptyline Use as Prophylactic for Migraine in a 26-Year-Old Man
TLDR
A case of a young gentleman who was started on amitriptyline for migraine but developed hypertension, the patient’s blood pressure normalized after stopping amitripyline but became elevated when reintroduced, highlighting the possibility of amitcriptyline-induced hypertension even without concomitant medication use or high doses. Expand
Lasmiditan: an additional therapeutic option for the acute treatment of migraine
TLDR
Lasmiditan can be safely prescribed in patients who have failed non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs or triptans or with cardiovascular risk factors, and has a positive effect on migraine-related disability. Expand
Trans-nasal high-flow dehumidified air in acute migraine headaches: A randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Trans-nasal high-flow dry gas therapy may have a role in reducing migraine associated pain and photosensitivity scores. Expand
Cluster headache: state of the art of pharmacological treatments and therapeutic perspectives
TLDR
Cluster headache (CH) is the most common form of trigeminal autonomic cephalalgia, and no brand‐new treatment has emerged in the past 5 years, but promising drugs, such as CGRP(R) antibodies, are under study. Expand
The fifth cranial nerve in headaches
TLDR
The neuroanatomical structures and pathways implicated in the sensation of the trigeminal system are described and the current understanding of several primary headaches, painful neuropathies and their pharmacological treatments are presented. Expand
A Popperian View on Anti‐CGRP Biologics in Migraine
TLDR
Their therapeutic efficacy, along with the well-known inability of antibodies to easily permeate the bloodbrain barrier (BBB), suggest that anti-CGRP biologics must exclusively operate outside of the brain and therefore migraine is mostly peripheral in origin. Expand
Biochemical Modulation and Pathophysiology of Migraine.
TLDR
The literature was reviewed with specific focus on clinical, neurophysiological, functional imaging, and preclinical studies in migraine including the studies on the role of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide (PACAP). Expand

TLDR
Advances on several fronts are expected, including CGRP receptor structures that may help development of centrally-acting antagonists, combinatorial treatments that integrate other therapies, and development of drugs that target other neuropeptides. Expand

Magnetic resonance angiography of intracranial and extracranial arteries in patients with spontaneous migraine without aura: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
Migraine pain was not accompanied by extracranial arterial dilatation, and by only slight intracranial dilated arteries, and future migraine research should focus on the peripheral and central pain pathways rather than simple arterial Dilatation. Expand
Is There a Relationship between Throbbing Pain and Arterial Pulsations?
TLDR
It is found that the throbbing rate was much slower than the arterial pulsation rate, and that the two rhythms exhibited no underlying synchrony, indicating that the physiological mechanisms underlying these rhythmic events are distinct. Expand
Evidence for a vascular factor in migraine
TLDR
Examination of diameter of extra‐ and intracranial vessels in migraine without aura patients concluded that neural dysfunction without involvement of vasodilatation is the most likely cause of migraine. 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
PACAP38 induces migraine-like attacks in patients with migraine without aura.
TLDR
Pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide-38 infusion caused headache and vasodilatation in both healthy subjects and migraine patients and caused delayed migraine-like attacks in migraine sufferers. Expand
The middle meningial artery during a migraine attack: 3T magnetic resonance angiography study.
TLDR
There were no dramatic changes of vasodilation in the MMA during the attack, resembling extrapolations of observations in experimental animal models, suggesting that the dramatic vasomotion might not be associated with migraine pathophysiology. Expand
Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide Causes Marked Cephalic Vasodilation, but does not Induce Migraine
TLDR
VIP mediates a marked dilation of cranial arteries, but does not trigger migraine attacks in migraineurs, providing further evidence against a purely vascular origin of migraine. Expand

TLDR
This work has shown that the triptans' major action is neuronal, with both peripheral and central trigeminal inhibitory effects, as well as actions in the thalamus and at central modulatory sites, such as the periaqueductal grey matter. Expand
Migraine can be induced by sildenafil without changes in middle cerebral artery diameter.
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that migraine may be induced via a cGMP-dependent mechanism, and it is proposed that triggering mechanisms may reside within the perivascular sensory nerve terminals or the brainstem. Expand
