The Role of Oxidative Stress Markers in the Pathophysiology of Migraine and After Treatment
Conclusions: The effect of oxidative stress in the pathophysiology of migraine is more likely to be an oxidant. These parameters alone are not sufficient to explain the pathophysiology of migraine because no significant changes were observed in either of antioxidant and oxidant levels, whereas a significant improvement in pain was achieved after the treatment of patients. Therefore, these results suggest that there are more than one mechanism in the pathophysiology of migraine. (Source: Neurosurgery Quarterly)

Middle Fossa and Sylvian Fissure Arachnoid Cysts Associated With Intracystic Hemorrhage and Subdural Hematoma
Conclusions: The annual hemorrhage risk for patients with middle cranial fossa cysts remains very low. However, when hemorrhage occurs, in most occasions it can be effectively managed only by hematoma evacuation; however, occasionally microsurgical and endoscopic cyst-wall fenestration to basal cisterns and, rarely, cystoperitoneal shunt might be needed.

Two New Antibiotics Treat Severe Skin Infections
* Two new antibiotics, tedizolid (Sivextro) and oritavancin (Orbactiv), were recently approved to treat serious skin and skin-structure infections. * Tedizolid is given for six days either orally or intravenously. The most common adverse effects are nausea, headache, diarrhea, vomiting, and dizziness. * Oritavancin is given as a single IV dose. The most common adverse effects are headache, nausea, vomiting, limb and subcutaneous abscesses, and diarrhea. (Source: AJN)

Young adults aren’t too young to be at risk for a stroke
Jennifer Reilly was 28 years old when she began experiencing some odd symptoms. Half of her left hand went numb. She could move her fingers, but she couldn’t feel anything on the outer part of that hand. Because she was so young, Reilly assumed it was nothing. She was wrong. She was having a stroke. The numbness recurred off and on for several days. Then one night she had a piercing headache, an uncommon event for her. She mentioned her symptoms to a work colleague, who urged her to see a doctor. “I didn’t know I was having a stroke at the time,” said Reilly, now 35. “I just assumed I was a healthy, normal 28-yea...

Why You Should Never Ask 'Have You Tried...?'
One day I walked into the doctor's office and I came out with a diagnosis. At first the diagnosis gave me relief, even joy. At last I have an answer. I know what the problem is, and surely I can therefore find the solution. I can get better. I can feel better. I will be whole again. It's all good from here. You'd think that incurable, life-long stuff would hit you immediately, right in the cerebral cortex and wham! a solution would process. Sadly, it doesn't work like that. Incurable and life-long are concepts that are beyond the human ability to process immediately. In my case, it was beyond my human ability to proc...

Revolutionary Way to Be Healthy, #5: Repossess Your Health
It's often said that we take our health for granted right up to the moment we become ill or injured. And I think that's true. We humans are inclined to take a lot of important things for granted until they are threatened or lost. What's weird about our relationship with our health, though, is that almost as soon as it begins to falter (as the predictable result of neglect), we proceed directly from taking it for granted to simply rejecting our responsibility for it. Rather than re-declaring our ownership and jumping into corrective action ("Gads, it appears I have left this valuable vessel unmaintained and on autopilot f...

Electroanaesthesia – from torpedo fish to TENS
Summary In 153 AD, the Roman physician Scribonius Largus identified that electric current had analgesic properties, instructing patients to stand on an electric ray for the treatment of gout. In 2014, transcranial magnetic stimulation was approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence for the treatment of migraine. Although separated by nearly two millennia, these milestones represent the evolution of the utilisation of electric current in medical and anaesthetic practice. Significant advances have been made over the last century in particular, and during the 1960s and 1970s, tens of thousands of patient...

Cerebrovascular regulation, exercise, and mild traumatic brain injury
A substantial number of people who sustain a mild traumatic brain injury report persistent symptoms. Most common among these symptoms are headache, dizziness, and cognitive difficulties. One possible contributor to sustained symptoms may be compromised cerebrovascular regulation. In addition to injury-related cerebrovascular dysfunction, it is possible that prolonged rest after mild traumatic brain injury leads to deconditioning that may induce physiologic changes in cerebral blood flow control that contributes to persistent symptoms in some people. There is some evidence that exercise training may reduce symptoms perhaps ...

Child Neurology: PRRT2-associated movement disorders and differential diagnoses
Paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia (PKD) (MIM 128200) is a rare paroxysmal movement disorder that occurs at an estimated prevalence of 1:150,000 individuals.1 Onset is most commonly in childhood or adolescence, with sporadic and familial cases being reported.2,3 PKD is characterized by short and frequent episodes of dystonic or choreiform movements that are precipitated by sudden voluntary movements or startle. Classic clinical criteria for PKD therefore include an identifiable kinesigenic trigger, short duration of attacks, no loss of consciousness or pain during attacks, normal interictal neurologic examination results, t...

Patient reported outcome measures for cardiac ablation procedures: a multicentre pilot to develop a new questionnaire
Conclusions The high response rate suggests that the use of PROMs in this patient group is feasible, with rates equalling those of the National PROMs Programme. The results showed that patients experienced significant improvements in their quality of life following ablation, while feedback allowed the tools to be improved. Further work is required to validate these tools; however, the findings suggest that PROMs could be useful in the audit of ablation techniques. (Source: Europace)

Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) associated with liquorice consumption
Conclusion and relevance Liquorice contains a biologically active compound glycyrrhizic acid which inhibits 11β hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. Excessive liquorice consumption can cause mineralocorticoid excess and has been recently reported to cause PRES. We propose that in the absence of other triggers, frequent liquorice consumption precipitated the development of PRES in our patient and should be considered as a possible cause of this condition.

Phosphodiesterase 3 inhibitor cilostazol induces migraine-like attacks via cyclic AMP increase
The initiating mechanisms of migraine attacks are very complex but may involve the cyclic AMP signalling pathway. It is unknown whether intracellular cyclic AMP accumulation induces migraine attacks. We investigated whether administration of cilostazol, which causes cyclic AMP accumulation, may induce migraine attacks. We included 14 migraine patients without aura in a double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study. All participants received oral cilostazol or placebo on two separate days. We recorded migraine headache characteristics, associated symptoms and time of rescue medication intake using a questionnaire. Cilost...

Local control after fractionated stereotactic radiation therapy for brain metastases
Abstract Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is frequently used in the management of brain metastases, but concerns over potential toxicity limit applications for larger lesions or those in eloquent areas. Fractionated stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT) is often substituted for SRS in these cases. We retrospectively analyzed the efficacy and toxicity outcomes of patients who received SRT at our institution. Seventy patients with brain metastases treated with SRT from 2006–2012 were analyzed. The rates of local and distant intracranial progression, overall survival, acute toxicity, and radionecrosis were determine...
