INTRODUCTION: Patients with intracranial masses are often advised to avoid airflight due to concerns of worsening neurological symptoms or deterioration. However, many patients often travel cross-country or internationally to tertiary care centers for definitive care. This study assesses the safety of commercial airflight for brain and skull base tumor patients without severe or progressive neurological deficits. METHODS: Patients that had traveled to our institution for surgery via commercial airflight from 2014 to 2017 were identified...

BACKGROUND: Polypharmacy can appropriately treat multiple chronic conditions, but it can also increase potential harm. Polypharmacy information for primary headaches is minimal, despite drugs being the main tools to manage headaches. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to evaluate the prevalence, characteristics and risk factors of polypharmacy in patients with primary headaches and examine whether these variables differ between episodic and chronic headache patients. METHODS: We analysed polypharmacy (simultaneous use of five or more medications), medication type, comorbidity, and risk factors in 300 patients (mean age 42...

Background: Arnold Chiari malformation (ACM) is characterized by an anatomical defect at the base of the skull where the cerebellum and the spinal cord herniate through the foramen magnum into the cervical spinal canal. Among the subtypes of the condition, ACM type I (ACM-I) is particularly outstanding because of the severity of symptoms. This study aimed to analyze the orofacial clinical manifestations of patients with ACM-I, and discuss their demographic distribution and clinical features in light of the literature...

BACKGROUND: Headache has been associated with various lifestyle- and psychosocial factors, one of which is smoking. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the association between smoking intensity and headache is likely to be causal. METHOD: 58 316 participants from the Nord-Trøndelag Health Study (HUNT) with information on headache status were genotyped for the rs1051730 C>T single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP). The SNP was used as an instrument for smoking intensity in a Mendelian randomization (MR) analysis...

OBJECTIVE: Early diagnosis and treatment initiation significantly influence long term disability outcome in multiple sclerosis (MS). We aimed at identifying prodromal symptoms of MS in primary care settings. METHODS: This was a nested case-control study comparing the occurrence of various symptoms in MS patients vs controls at 0-2, 2-5 and 5-10 years before index date (first MS record). A total of 10,204 incident MS cases were identified within the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) between 01/01/1987 and 28/02/2016 (median (IQR) age=47 (39-57) years, females=7,308 (71...

Background: A variety of interventions has been proposed for symptomatology relief in primary headaches. Among these, manual trigger points (TrPs) treatment gains popularity, but its effects have not been investigated yet. Objective: The aim was to establish the effectiveness of manual TrP compared to minimal active or no active interventions in terms of frequency, intensity, and duration of attacks in adult people with primary headaches. Methods: We searched MEDLINE, COCHRANE, Web Of Science, and PEDro databases up to November 2017 for randomized controlled trials (RCTs)...

Sylvia Lucas, Andrew H Ahn
There are currently no accepted therapies for posttraumatic headache (PTH). In order to meet the urgent need for effective therapies for PTH, we must continue to address fundamental gaps in our understanding of the clinical course and impact of PTH. Here we examine the existing schema used to characterize the clinical characteristics of PTH, including the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD). There remain unresolved questions about whether to classify patients based on the extent of brain injury or on clinical symptom profiles...

BACKGROUND: Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is a common herpesvirus infection that can result in acute varicella/chickenpox as well as delayed activation in herpes zoster/shingles. Ramsay-Hunt syndrome is a rare presentation of VZV reactivation, involving 1% of cases and resulting in lesion formation along the 7th cranial nerve distribution. We report the first case of a patient who presented with acute calvarial osteomyelitis after VZV reactivation and Propionibacterium acnes suprainfection...
