Amanda Tinsley, John Farr Rothrock
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review is intended to examine how the diagnostic criteria for migraine have evolved over the past 45 years and to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the current diagnostic criteria promulgated by the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD). RECENT FINDINGS: The ICHD is a comprehensive and systematic classification system for headache disorders. As the pathophysiology of migraine is more fully elucidated and more sophisticated diagnostic technologies are developed (e...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to evaluate and explain our current understanding of the clinical use of buprenorphine in the treatment of chronic pain. RECENT FINDINGS: There has been few high-quality, unbiased studies performed on the use of buprenorphine in the treatment of chronic pain. Buprenorphine is an effective and safe analgesic that is tolerated at least as well, if not better, than other opioids. Given its safety and mechanistic advantages, the authors believe there is an important role for buprenorphine in the treatment of chronic pain severe enough to warrant the use of an opioid analgesic...

REVIEW
Michael J Marmura
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: A wide variety of triggers prompt attacks in episodic migraine. Although experimental triggers such as glyceryl trinitrate reliably produce migraine, natural triggers are much less predictable and vary in importance between individuals. This review describes the most common triggers in episodic migraine and provides strategies for managing them in clinical practice. RECENT FINDINGS: Multiple migraine attack triggers have been established based on patient surveys, diary studies, and clinical trials...

REVIEW
Angeliki Vgontzas, Rebecca Burch
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To review the pathophysiologic, epidemiologic, and clinical evidence for similarities and differences between migraine with and without aura. RECENT FINDINGS: The ICHD-3 has recently refined the diagnostic criteria for aura to include positive symptomatology, which better differentiates aura from TIA. Although substantial evidence supports cortical spreading depression as the cause of visual aura, the role (if any) of CSD in headache pain is not well understood...

REVIEW
John Whalen, Sheldon Yao, Adena Leder
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review highlights the importance of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) in headache sufferers. OMT is a viable option for patients who either do not wish to use pharmaceuticals or who have contraindications to pharmaceuticals. Patients with headaches that are refractory to other treatment options may also be candidates for OMT. Multiple headache etiologies are amenable to this non-invasive treatment option and they will be reviewed here. Although there are advantages to using this treatment method, there are also shortcomings in the literature, which will be discussed...

REVIEW
Deanna R Befus, Megan Bennett Irby, Remy R Coeytaux, Donald B Penzien
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Despite recognition of rising prevalence and significant burden, migraine remains underestimated, underdiagnosed, and undertreated. This is especially true among groups who have been historically, socially, and economically marginalized such as communities of color, women, people experiencing poverty, people with lower levels of education, and people who hold more than one of these marginalized identities. While there is growing public and professional interest in disparities in migraine prevalence, there is a paucity of research focusing on racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities, and the social and structural determinants of health and equity that perpetuate these disparities...

REVIEW
Simy K Parikh
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Migraine is a disabling and prevalent neurological disease, commonly affecting women during their reproductive years. It is crucial for providers to be able to adequately counsel women who are pregnant, planning pregnancy, or nursing, regarding preventive and abortive treatment options for episodic migraine. This review will discuss (1) the expected course of migraine during pregnancy and the post-partum period, (2) recommended preventive therapies for migraine during pregnancy and lactation, and (3) recommended abortive medications for migraine during pregnancy and lactation...

REVIEW
Divya R Shah, Sonam Dilwali, Deborah I Friedman
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review evaluates and explains our current understanding of a rare subtype of migraine, typical aura without headache, also known as migraine aura without headache or acephalgic migraine. RECENT FINDINGS: Typical aura without headache is a known entity within the spectrum of migraine. Its pathophysiology is suggested to be similar to classic migraines, with cortical spreading depression leading to aura formation but without an associated headache...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of the study is to evaluate and analyze the role of both opioid and non-opioid analgesics in the emergency department (ED). RECENT FINDINGS: Studies have shown that the implementation of opioid-prescribing policies in the ED has the potential to reduce the opioid addiction burden. Clinical studies point to inconsistencies in providers' approach to pain treatment. In this review, we discuss specific aspects of opioid utilization and explore alternative non-opioid approaches to pain management...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The aim is twofold. First, to give an insight on the role exerted by different classes of drugs in favouring migraine chronification. Second, to explore the relationship between type and amount of overused medications and history of previous withdrawal treatment and of frequent relapses. RECENT FINDINGS: All drug classes were found to favour migraine chronification. No data are available for the association with relapses into CM-MOH. Our clinical study shows that patients who underwent previous withdrawal treatments were more likely to be overusers of multiple drug classes and overuse higher amounts of symptomatic medications, particularly, indomethacin, eletriptan and tramadol...

REVIEW
Amar Anand, Thomas J Pfiffner, Laszlo Mechtler
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to give a better understanding of the pathogenesis of cystic formations of the mobile spine (CYFMOS) and the correlating imaging findings. This would help with medical decision-making, given the plethora of conservative, interventional, and surgical treatment options. RECENT FINDINGS: There has been a general understanding that CYFMOS are associated with degenerative spine changes. More recent articles however have suggested that identifying detailed imaging characteristics can assist in determining outcomes when CYFMOS are treated with interventional percutaneous methods or surgical decompression with or without concomitant fusion...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This article discusses the etiology and management of post-craniotomy headache and pain. A review of available as well as investigatory treatment modalities is offered, followed by suggestions for optimal management of post-craniotomy headache. RECENT FINDINGS: There is a dearth of evidence-based practice regarding the differential diagnosis, natural history, and management of post-craniotomy headache. The etiology of post-craniotomy headache is typically multifactorial, with patients' medical history, type of craniotomy, and perioperative management all playing a role...

REVIEW
Dara Bree, Dan Levy
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In recent years, the awareness of the detrimental impact of concussion and mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) is becoming more apparent. Concussive head trauma results in a constellation of cognitive and somatic symptoms of which post-traumatic headache is the most common. Our understanding of post-traumatic headache is limited by the paucity of well validated, characterized, and clinically relevant animal models with strong predictive validity. In this review, we aim to summarize and discuss current animal models of concussion/mTBI and related data that start to shed light on the pathophysiology of post-traumatic headache...
