Size matters! The neuroanatomy of trigeminal neuralgia ´ s treatment response

(International Headache Society) An MRI study investigating the influence of changes in the neuroanatomy of trigeminal neuralgia found that both trigeminal nerve and brain structures such as the hippocampus can predict the surgical treatment outcome. Greater trigeminal nerve and hippocampus volumes were more associated with non-responders patients.

Discussion The embryonic mesoderm forms the skeletal system. The mesoderm is further divided into the dorsal, sclerotome and ventral dermatome. The sclerotome forms the ribs which are under the influence of various genes and growth factors. Congenital rib abnormalities occur in number ( the normal 12 ribs) or in formation/structural. Malformations can include hypoplastic, bridging, forked, fused and hypoplastic ribs. Even ribs with holes occur because of the segmentation issues. Illustrated examples can be found here. The rib’s cartilage, bone or both can be affected. Location along the rib is also variable. Abnormal...

AbstractCerebral amyloid angiopathy-related inflammation is a syndrome of reversible encephalopathy with cerebral amyloid angiopathy, however the pathology is not well understood. We clear a part of the pathology through the first case of an 80-year-old man with cerebral amyloid angiopathy-related inflammation induced by relapsing polychondritis (RP) analysis. An 80-year-old man was diagnosed with RP by auricular cartilage biopsy. Almost no abnormality including intracranial microbleeding was detected by cranial magnetic resonance image (MRI) at diagnosis. However, he developed a headache and hallucination after five month...

In this study, we aimed to assess LV functions with the utility of two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D-STE) and cardiac biomarkers with respect to the headache-free and attack periods and frequency of migraine attacks. Sixty-eight patients with MA were enrolled. During headache-free and attack periods, all patients underwent echocardiographic examination including 2D-STE, and cardiac biomarkers, B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and high sensitive cTnT (hs-cTnT) were studied. The impact of headache periods and frequency of attacks on cardiac mechanics and biomarkers were investigated. The mean age of study...

We describe the case of a 39-year-old male, who presented to our emergency department after a one-day history of headache and vomiting, with associated sudden onset posterior neck pain and cerebellar signs following a massage. Computed tomography angiogram and brain demonstrated bilateral vertebral artery dissection and cerebellar stroke. He was admitted to hospital for monitoring and conservative management with antiplatelet therapy, resulting in a good outcome. This is the first reported case of bilateral vertebral artery dissection and stroke to be associated with massage. This case also suggests, unlike many reports in...
