WITHDRAWN: Anticonvulsant drugs for migraine prophylaxis.

CONCLUSIONS: Anticonvulsants appear to be both effective in reducing migraine frequency and reasonably well tolerated. There is noticeable variation among individual agents, but there are insufficient data to know whether this is due to chance or variation in true efficacy. Acetazolamide, clonazepam, lamotrigine and vigabatrin were not superior to placebo (one trial each). Relatively few robust trials are available for agents other than sodium valproate/divalproex sodium and topiramate; gabapentin in particular needs further evaluation. Trials designed with sufficient power to compare different drugs are also necessary. PMID: 27233055 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: As we could not identify any other cause for the subacute subdural hematoma, hemorrhage from the meningioma was the most probable cause, and thus, we decided to remove it along with clot evacuation. Based on neuropathological findings, we propose an alternative mechanism for this spontaneous hemorrhage from the meningioma, involving the place where the periphery of the lesion insertion, the dura mater as the origin of the hemorrhage. Knowledge of this association could help define the best treatment in such cases. PMID: 33024602 [PubMed]

Conclusion: Proximal occlusion of the basilar artery combined with STA-SCA bypass was successful in preventing rerupture of BAD and ensuring blood flow in the upper basilar region. Although there is controversy regarding acute treatment for ruptured BAD, direct proximal occlusion with sufficient revascularization using bypass skull base technique may be one of the optimal treatments even in this era of endovascular treatment.
