Pregnancy can be seen as a positive time for women migraineurs because the elevated estrogen and endogenous opioid levels raise the pain threshold and the stable hormone levels, which no longer fluctuate, eliminate a major trigger factor for the attacks. In a great majority of cases, indeed, migraine symptoms spontaneously improve throughout pregnancy. Generally, migraine without aura (MO) improves better than migraine with aura (MA), which can occur ex novo in pregnancy more frequently than MO. After childbirth, the recurrence rate of migraine attacks increases, especially during the first month; breastfeeding exerts a protective effect against the reappearance of attacks...

BACKGROUND: Α number of genetic variants have been associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). A recent study supports that rs591486 across the ERCC6L2 gene and exposure to pesticides seem to have a joint effect on the development of Parkinson's disease, a disease which shares a few common characteristics with ALS. OBJECTIVE: To detect a possible contribution of rs591486 ERCC6L2 to ALS. METHODS: A total of 155 patients with ALS and 155 healthy controls were included in the study and genotyped for rs591486...

Migraine is one of the most frequent complaints in children and adolescents and it can have a significant impact on quality of life. There are several factors underlying the onset and the maintenance of this disorder and there is still no a clear etiopathogenesis common to all subjects suffering from migraine. Psychological factors such as individual characteristics, psychiatric comorbidities, and temperament are strictly related to psychosomatic disorders and to migraine. Also, the environmental influence is very relevant and studied: socio-economic status, family dysfunctions, attachment style, or psychiatric disease in parents can influence the onset of migraine in children...

Among cephalgias, cluster headache (CH) is the rarest and the most disabling, explaining the appellation of "suicide headache." Up to 20% of chronic CH reveals to be resistant to pharmacological treatments, in which case interventional procedures should be considered. Many reports evaluated invasive approaches and a wide strand of research is dedicated to the sphenopalatine ganglion. Our paper will now be focused on providing an overview on modern applications on the sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG), their outcomes, and their feasibility in terms of risks and benefits...

Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is a condition characterized by increased intracranial pressure without a detectable cause. The most common symptom of IIH is a headache, which occurs in almost all cases at the time of diagnosis with various headache phenotypes. In clinical practice, diagnosis of headache attributed to IIH is given referring to the International Headache Society (IHS) criteria of the International Classification of Headache Disorders. In the present publication, we consider how the IHS diagnostic criteria for headache attributed to intracranial idiopathic hypertension have evolved through the years...

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease involving both the upper and lower motor neuron diseases. In this review, we studied and compared different articles regarding the electrodiagnostic criteria for diagnosis of lower motor neuron pathology in ALS. We reviewed the most recent articles and metaanalysis regarding various lower motor neuron electrodiagnostic methods for ALS and their sensitivities. We concluded that Awaji Shima criteria is by far the most sensitive criteria for diagnosis of ALS...

BACKGROUND: Pre-existing small vessel disease (SVD) has been associated with poor functional outcomes in patients with acute ischemic stroke treated with intravenous thrombolysis; however, there are scarce data in patients treated with endovascular therapy. We aimed to investigate the associations between SVD and clinical outcomes in patients treated with endovascular therapy. METHODS: We retrospectivel y evaluated patients with acute ischemic stroke in the anterior circulation receiving endovascular treatment...

Intraorbital meningoencephalocele is a rare manifestation of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) caused by secondary changes in sphenoid dysplasia, and it seriously affects patients' vision and facial appearance. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical data of 23 patients with NF1 and intraorbital meningoencephalocele, summarized the surgical strategies employed, and evaluated their clinical efficacy in order to better understand its management in clinical practice, establish a reasonable surgical strategy, and assess prognosis...

BACKGROUND: Medial temporal lobe epilepsy (mTLE) has been associated with widespread white mater (WM) alternations in addition to mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS). Herein, we aimed to investigate the correlation between disease duration and WM structural abnormalities in mTLE using diffusion MRI (DMRI) connectometry approach. METHOD: DMRI connectometry was conducted on 24 patients with mTLE. A multiple regression model was used to investigate white matter tracts with microstructural correlates to disease duration, controlling for age and sex...

Headache disorders are the third among the worldwide causes of disability, measured in years of life lost to disability. Given the pharmacies' importance in general in headache patient and, in particular in migraine patient management, various studies have been carried out in recent years dealing with this issue. Indeed, in 2014, our research group first analysed publications on a number of studies conducted worldwide. As five years have passed since our first analysis of the literature and having carried out a number of specific studies in Italy since 2014, we wish to analyse once again the studies carried out globally on this topic to evaluate how the situation has evolved in the meantime...

In this retrospective study, we analyzed the effects of age on brain volumes in healthy brains across adulthood. We investigated the correlations between brain volumes and age in the brains of 563 healthy individuals (age range: 20-86, 55% female) whose MRI scans and related information were drawn from the IXI database ( brain-development.org/ixi-dataset /). We conducted a regression analysis to assess the effect of age on whole-brain volumes as well as selected regional volumetric measures. The whole-brain analysis revealed a negative linear relationship between gray matter (GM) and age as well as nonlinear patterns of the relationship between age and the white matter (WM), cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and the GM/WM ratio across adulthood...

OBJECTIVE: Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) has been used to treat post-stroke upper limb spasticity (ULS) in addition to physiotherapy (PT). To determine whether rTMS associated with PT modulates cortical and spinal cord excitability as well as decreases ULS of post-stroke patients. METHODS: Twenty chronic patients were randomly assigned to either the intervention group-1 Hz rTMS on the unaffected hemisphere and PT, or control group-sham stimulation and PT, for ten sessions...
