Background Post-traumatic headache is the most common and long-lasting impairment observed following mild traumatic brain injury, and frequently has migraine-like characteristics. The mechanisms underlying progression from mild traumatic brain injury to post-traumatic headache are not fully understood. The aim of this study was to develop a mouse model of post-traumatic headache and identify mechanisms and novel targets associated with this disorder. Methods We combined the closed head weight-drop method and the nitroglycerin chronic migraine model...

Persistent post-concussion symptoms (PPCS) occur frequently after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). The identification of patients at risk for poor outcome remains challenging since valid prediction models are missing. The objectives of the current study were to assess the quality and clinical value of prediction models for PPCS , and to develop a new model based on the synthesis of existing models and addition of complaints at emergency department (ED). MTBI patients (Glasgow Coma Scale score 13-15) were prospectively recruited from three Dutch level I trauma centers between 2013-2015 in the UPFRONT study...

BACKGROUND: During the examination of the sellar region by magnetic resonance imaging, hyperintensity in T1 weighted is a common finding. This signal intensity has different sources, and its significance depends on the clinical context. Pathologic variations in T1 signal hyperintensity may be related to clotting of blood (pituitary apoplexy) or the presence of a high concentration of protein (Rathke cleft cyst). The purpose of this study is to describe the significance of intracystic nodule, a diagnostic characteristic found in Rathke's cleft cyst, on MRI...

Background: The evaluation of chronic pelvic and perineal pain (CPP) is often complex. The patient's description of the pain often appears to be disproportionate to the limited findings on physical examination and/or complementary investigations. The concept of central sensitization may allow better understanding and management of patients with CPP. Objective: The aim of this study was to elaborate a clinical evaluation tool designed to simply identify sensitization in pelvic pain...

BACKGROUND: Isolated sphenoid mucoceles are rare, but because of their close proximity to important vasculonervous structures, local extension may result in serious consequences. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 47-year-old patient presented with headaches, meningismus, and a left homonymous lateral hemianopia. We report the atypical evolution of a posttraumatic sphenoid mucocele invading the sellar region and extending into the subarachnoid space with compression of the right optic tract, and we describe its surgical management...

Introduction: Migraine, a chronic neurological disorder characterized by episodic severe headache pain and functional impairment, affects approximately 12% of the general US population. Veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan have two to four times the incidence of migraine of the general population. Veterans with migraines are more than twice as likely to have comorbid psychiatric conditions as veterans without migraines, with depression and post-traumatic stress disorder being most prevalent...

BACKGROUND: Post-traumatic depression (PTD) is one of the most common secondary complications to develop after moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, it rarely manifests singularly, and often co-occurs with other common TBI impairments. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this thematic review is to evaluate studies examining the relationships between PTD and cognition, fatigue, pain, and headache among individuals with moderate-to-severe TBI. RESULTS: We reviewed 16 studies examining the relationship between PTD and cognition (five articles), fatigue (five articles), pain (four articles), and headache (two articles)...

BACKGROUND: We examined the factor structure of the Rivermead Post-Concussion Symptom Questionnaire (RPQ), the most commonly used measure of post-concussive symptoms, over the first year post-injury. METHOD: Factor analysis (orthogonal rotation) was used to examine the RPQ items that form coherent subsets/factors within 2-weeks, and 1, 6, and 12-months post-mTBI in 527 adults (age >16 years). RESULTS: At baseline, three factors accounted for 63...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral edema peaks 36-72 h after moderate traumatic brain injury but thought to be uncommon after mild traumatic brain injury. Post-traumatic headache can develop 48-72 h post-injury, perhaps reflecting the developing cerebral edema. Pseudotumor cerebri can result from various causes, including cerebral edema, and is characterized by increased intracranial pressure, headache, visual, and other common symptoms. Our objective was to report a phenotypically identifiable post-traumatic headache subtype...

Traumatic arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) involving the middle meningeal artery (MMA) are uncommon lesions and rare in the pediatric population. An adolescent with headaches developed a bruit and a rhythmic "swooshing" noise in the left ear 9 weeks after a traumatic brain injury involving a left temporal bone fracture. An MRA of the brain demonstrated an enlarged left MMA and arterialized flow in the left middle meningeal vein (MMV), suggestive of an AVF. Cerebral angiography confirmed and characterized the left MMA-MMV fistula, which drained into the pterygoid plexus...
