Is chronic inhibition of phosphodiesterase type 5 cardioprotective and safe? A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
Conclusions: This meta-analysis suggests for the first time that PDE5i have anti-remodeling properties and improve cardiac inotropism, independently of afterload changes, with a good safety profile. Given the reproducibility of the findings and tolerability across different populations, PDE5i could be reasonably offered to men with cardiac hypertrophy and early stage heart failure. Given the limited gender data, a larger trial on the sex-specific response to long-term PDE5i treatment is required. (Source: BMC Medicine)

The thalamic reticular nucleus is activated by cortical spreading depression in freely moving rats: prevention by acute valproate administration
This study investigated the effect of repetitive cortical spreading depression (CSD) on behaviour and the anatomical and physiological patterns of cellular activation of cortical and subcortical areas in awake, moving rats. Rat behaviours in response to repetitive CSD events evoked by the application of KCl were quantified with electrophysiological recording. Immunohistochemistry was used to quantify anatomical regions of cellular activation. The effects of acute valproic acid administration on the behavioural parameters and cellular activation were evaluated. CSD significantly decreased locomotor activity and induced free...

Pediatric migraine: common, yet treatable
Abstract:Migraine headache is a common problem among children and adolescents that is now recognized as a significant and often debilitating condition in this population. Improved recognition and management of pediatric migraine in primary care is necessary, as there is a knowledge gap in understanding the unique features of this condition and a general reluctance to treat children.

A pain in the neck
A 41-year-old woman presented to the emergency department after developing severe neck pain while unloading groceries. The pain began at the base of her neck, radiated to the vertex of the skull, reached maximum intensity within 2–3 min, and was aggravated by head movement. Neurological examination was normal. Head CT showed focal hyperattenuation immediately anterior to the midbrain (figure 1) and angiogram showed no evidence of aneurysm (see online supplementary figure 1). Diagnosis: Perimesencephalic nonaneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (PN-SAH). Originally described in 1985,1 PN-SAH has been reported in pa...

Periodic Lateralized Epileptiform Discharges (PLEDs) in Patients With Neurosyphilis and HIV Infection.
Abstract Periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges (PLEDs) are an electroencephalographic pattern recorded in the setting of a variety of brain abnormalities. It is best recognized for its association with acute viral encephalitis, stroke, tumor, or latestatus epilepticus. However, there are other conditions that have been recognized as the underlying pathology for PLEDs such as alcohol withdrawal, Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease, anoxic brain injury, and hemiplegic migraine. However, there are only rare case reports of PLEDs in patients with neurosyphilis. Here, we report 2 patients presenting with encephalopathy and...

Statistical Testing of Association Between Menstruation and Migraine
ConclusionsIn this paper, we correct a proposed method for establishing association between menstruation and migraine by statistical methods.

CADASIL and CARASIL
Abstract CADASIL and CARASIL are hereditary small vessel diseases leading to vascular dementia. CADASIL commonly begins with migraine followed by minor strokes in mid‐adulthood. Dominantly inherited CADASIL is caused by mutations (n > 230) in NOTCH3 gene, which encodes Notch3 receptor expressed in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC). Notch3 extracellular domain (N3ECD) accumulates in arterial walls followed by VSMC degeneration and subsequent fibrosis and stenosis of arterioles, predominantly in cerebral white matter, where characteristic ischemic MRI changes and lacunar infarcts emerge. The likely pathogenesis of...

Acute hemicerebellitis in a young adult: a case report and literature review
Acute hemicerebellitis, marked by headache with or without cerebellar signs, is a rare clinical entity involving a unilateral cerebellar hemisphere. The pathogenesis of acute hemicerebellitis remains unclear, and the disease rarely occurs in adults. Here, we report an 18-year-old woman who presented with a lack of coordination of the right hand and leg lasting longer than one week, following a pulsatile headache. A neurological examination disclosed ocular dysmetria, right-sided limb ataxia and slight truncal ataxia. (Source: Journal of the Neurological Sciences)

A Phase 1 Dose Escalation and Expansion Study of the Anti-Cancer Stem Cell Agent Demcizumab (Anti-DLL4) in Patients with Previously Treated Solid Tumors.
Conclusion: Demcizumab was generally well-tolerated at doses < 5 mg weekly with disease stabilization and decreases in tumor size demonstrating antitumor activity. Hypertension was the most common adverse event that was clearly related to treatment. Prolonged administration was associated with an increased risk of congestive heart failure.

Pituitary apoplexy: an update on clinical and imaging features
Abstract Pituitary apoplexy (PA) is a rare and potentially fatal clinical condition presenting acute headache, vomiting, visual impairment, ophthalmoplegia, altered mental state and possible panhypopituitarism. It mostly occurs in patients with haemorrhagic infarction of the pituitary gland due to a pre-existing macroadenoma. Although there are pathological and physiological conditions that may share similar imaging characteristics, both clinical and imaging features can guide the radiologist towards the correct diagnosis, especially using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In this review, we will describe the main...

[Comment] CGRP as a new target in prevention and treatment of migraine
Calcitonin-gene-related peptide (CGRP), which is released during migraine attacks, has been identified as a possible target for the treatment of migraine. CGRP is located in sensory nerve endings in cranial blood vessels and is a potent dilator of cerebral arteries. Its receptors are also found in many brain areas, including the central trigeminal system. Therefore, CGRP antagonists were developed for the treatment of acute migraine attacks (), and they were suggested as a possible treatment for patients with contraindications for triptans, such as those with angina or after myocardial infarction or stroke.

The value of CT angiography in patients with acute severe headache
Patients with acute severe headache may have a secondary form of headache. Standard head computer tomography (CT) and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination are often performed in the absence of neurological deficits to exclude subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Increasingly, patients undergo subsequent CT angiography (CTA) to exclude cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT), dissection or reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS). It is unknown whether this additional imaging increases diagnostic yield. We aimed to evaluate the yield of CTA in patients with acute severe headache with normal neurological examination and no a...

Migraine Headache Prophylaxis in Adolescents
Abstract Migraine headache is estimated to affect up to 28 percent of adolescents, most of whom are female. Chronic migraine in this population has been associated with reduced quality of life and academic disruption due to missed school days. Historically, migraine headache was treated episodically as it occurred. In March 2014 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved an existing medication, topiramate (Topamax®), for migraine prophylaxis in adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17. This is the first FDA approval of a drug for migraine prevention in this population. There are several possible adverse effects of ta...

Sudden death due to a cystic lesion in the cerebellum
Hemangioblastomas are rare, benign tumors of the central nervous system (CNS), and they most commonly occur in the cerebellum of adults [1–3]. Macroscopically, they are usually cystic, and their mass effect induces increased intracranial pressure (ICP), which leads to the clinical symptoms of hemangioblastomas: headache, nausea, vomiting, ataxia, and dizziness [1]. We herein report an autopsy case of cerebellar hemangioblastoma in a middle-aged female patient who had suffered from the above-mentioned symptoms for about 2 months before she died shortly after entering a mental hospital.
