61. Nerve blocks in paediatric and adolescent headache disorders. (PubMed)

Nerve blocks in paediatric and adolescent headache disorders. Headaches in children and adolescents are common, causing debilitating symptoms in many. Treatment of headache disorders can be complex and standard lifestyle changes as well as oral medications may offer inadequate relief. The purpose of this article is to review the mechanism of action, efficacy and technique of peripheral nerve blocks (PNBs) and the role they play in treating paediatric headache disorders.Evidence for the use (...) of PNBs in youth is limited. However, available studies show evidence of benefit in both primary and secondary headache disorders. Variability exists in the type of block, medication choice, volume infused and frequency of this treatment. There are no serious side effects associated with PNBs.PNBs are well tolerated and effective as adjunctive therapy for many disabling paediatric headache disorders. The technique can be easily learned by frontline and specialty practitioners. Prospective placebo

62. Red and orange flags for secondary headaches in clinical practice: SNNOOP10 list. (PubMed)

Red and orange flags for secondary headaches in clinical practice: SNNOOP10 list. A minority of headache patients have a secondary headache disorder. The medical literature presents and promotes red flags to increase the likelihood of identifying a secondary etiology. In this review, we aim to discuss the incidence and prevalence of secondary headaches as well as the data on sensitivity, specificity, and predictive value of red flags for secondary headaches. We review the following red flags (...) ) pathology of the immune system such as HIV; (15) painkiller overuse or new drug at onset of headache. Using the systematic SNNOOP10 list to screen new headache patients will presumably increase the likelihood of detecting a secondary cause. The lack of prospective epidemiologic studies on red flags and the low incidence of many secondary headaches leave many questions unanswered and call for large prospective studies. A validated screening tool could reduce unneeded neuroimaging and costs.© 2018

63. The Feasibility and Efficacy of Ultrasound-Guided C2 Nerve Root Coblation for Cervicogenic Headache. (PubMed)

The Feasibility and Efficacy of Ultrasound-Guided C2 Nerve Root Coblation for Cervicogenic Headache. The cervicogenic headache is a syndrome caused by dysfunction of the upper cervical spine and its component bony, disc, and/or soft tissue elements. The C2 nerve root may play a pivotal role in cervicogenic headache. In this retrospective study, we evaluated the feasibility and efficacy of ultrasound-guided C2 nerve root coblation in managing 26 patients with cervicogenic headache.The data were (...) collected retrospectively by reviewing the patient's medical records and pain questionnaires.A total of 109 patients with cervicogenic headache sustained for at least six months were identified. Of those patients, 26 had a visual analog scale score ≥6 and subsequently underwent an ultrasound-guided C2 nerve root coblation.All 26 patients had >50% pain relief one day after coblation. Twenty-three of the 26 patients (92.31%) had a decrease in their pain score of 50% or more at 24-week follow-up. The mean

Henry’s law The mass of gas absorbed by a liquid is directly proportional to the partial pressure of the gas above the liquid. Sudden decompression at altitude may result in dysbaric injuries.

these conditions balancing risks to both mother and fetus. Shownotes – Key Concepts The physiologic demands of pregnancy may cause previously occult medical conditions to become apparent and known problems to deteriorate rapidly. The physiologic adjustments of pregnancy alter the normal ranges for certain laboratory values. The adjusted values need to be considered in the interpretation of results. The possibility of pregnancy should be considered in the differential diagnosis of certain conditions, including (...) new-onset seizures or status epilepticus (eclampsia), glucose intolerance (GDM), persistent vomiting (hyperemesis gravidarum), and thyroid disorders. The immunosuppressive effects of pregnancy may cause temporary improvement in inflammatory and autoimmune conditions. This beneficial effect is lost in the postpartum period, resulting in exacerbations of asthma, thyroid disorders, and myasthenia gravis. Medication requirements can change drastically during pregnancy and the postpartum period

We enrolled patients through the emergency department and from the neurosciences intensive care unit, and documented clinical features of the headache including the time to peak intensity, location, associated symptoms, and activities that caused worsening.One hundred and fifty-eight subjects were enrolled, of whom 20 patients had SAH and 138 did (...) Distinguishing Characteristics of Headache in Nontraumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage. Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a life-threatening emergency that is frequently missed due to its varied and often subtle presentation. The most common presentation of SAH is with a severe headache. The classical adjective used in SAH is "thunderclap"; however, this has not been well defined in the literature, rendering it a challenge to triage patients in clinical practice presenting with severe headache.We

Orofacial pain and headaches associated with exfoliation glaucoma. Exfoliation syndrome is the most common identifiable cause of open-angle glaucoma. The authors report a case of exfoliation glaucoma in a patient who had orofacial pain.A 77-year-old woman was treated at the orofacial pain clinic for left-sided facial pain and headaches of 7 months' duration. Her cataracts and open-angle glaucoma had been diagnosed approximately 3 years earlier. Her main symptoms were orofacial pain, eye redness (...) , inflammation of the eyelids, and eyelid edema. Magnetic resonance imaging showed no evidence of intracranial or extracranial pathology. Hemicrania continua was considered as a possible diagnosis. Indomethacin was prescribed but did not affect her headaches. She then went to an ophthalmologist to rule out secondary headaches. Intraocular pressure was 13 millimeters of mercury in the right eye and 67 mm Hg in the left eye. The ophthalmologist made a diagnosis of exfoliation glaucoma, and the patient

Osteopathy for primary headache patients: a systematic review. This systematic review aimed to assess the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and tolerability of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) in patients with headache.Migraine is one of the most common and disabling medical conditions. It affects more than 15% of the general population, causing high global socioeconomic costs, and the currently available treatment options are inadequate.We systematically reviewed all available studies (...) results from this systematic review show a preliminary low level of evidence that OMT is effective in the management of headache. However, studies with more rigorous designs and methodology are needed to strengthen this evidence. Moreover, this review suggests that new manual interventions for the treatment of acute migraine are available and developing.
