AbstractPurposeTraumatic thoracolumbar vertebral fractures are frequently treated with posterior fixation (PF) and vertebral augmentation.

The aim was to evaluate feasibility, safety and effectiveness of PVP in patients presenting with vertebral non-union (VNU) following PF performed without concomitant vertebral augmentation.Materials and MethodsAll patients treated in our institution with PVP between July 2015 and July ...
AbstractMigraineurs show impaired cognitive functions interictally, mainly involving information processing speed, basic attention, and executive functions. We aimed to assess executive impairment in migraine patients with different attack frequencies through a task-switching protocol designed to assess different sub-processes of executive functioning. We enrolled 42 migraine patients and divided them into three groups based on the attack frequency: 13 subjects had episodic migraine with a low frequency (LFEM, 4 –7 migraine days per month), 14 subjects had high-frequency episodic migraine (HFEM, 8–14 days)...
