However, research has shown an association between migraines and stroke, and especially between migraine with aura and ischaemic stroke. Patients can also suffer from migrainous infarction, a subset of ischaemic stroke that often occurs in the posterior (...) circulation of younger women. The exact pathogenesis of migrainous infarct is not known, but it is theorised that the duration and local neuronal energy level from cortical spreading depression may be a key factor. Other factors contributing to migrainous infarct may include vascular, inflammatory, endothelial structure, patent foramen ovale, gender, oral contraceptive pill use and smoking. Vasoconstrictors such as the triptan and ergot class are commonly used to treat migraines and may also play a role

48. WITHDRAWN: Propranolol for migraine prophylaxis.

WITHDRAWN: Propranolol for migraine prophylaxis. BACKGROUND: Propranolol is one of the most commonly prescribed drugs for migraine prophylaxis. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to determine whether there is evidence that propranolol is more effective than placebo and as effective as other drugs for the interval (prophylactic) treatment of patients with migraine. SEARCH METHODS: Potentially eligible studies were identified by searching MEDLINE/PubMed (1966 to May 2003) and the Cochrane Central Register (...) of Controlled Trials (Issue 2, 2003), and by screening bibliographies of reviews and identified articles. SELECTION CRITERIA: We included randomised and quasi-randomised clinical trials of at least 4 weeks duration comparing clinical effects of propranolol with placebo or another drug in adult migraine sufferers. DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS: Two reviewers extracted information on patients, methods, interventions, outcomes measured, and results using a pre-tested form. Study quality was assessed using two

Migraine and risk of perioperative ischemic stroke and hospital readmission: hospital based registry study. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether patients with migraine are at increased risk of perioperative ischemic stroke and whether this may lead to an increased hospital readmission rate. DESIGN: Prospective hospital registry study. SETTING: Massachusetts General Hospital and two satellite campuses between January 2007 and August 2014. PARTICIPANTS: 124 558 surgical patients (mean age 52.6 years (...) ; 54.5% women). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The primary outcome was perioperative ischemic stroke occurring within 30 days after surgery in patients with and without migraine and migraine aura. The secondary outcome was hospital readmission within 30 days of surgery. Exploratory outcomes included post-discharge stroke and strata of neuroanatomical stroke location. RESULTS: 10 179 (8.2%) patients had any migraine diagnosis, of whom 1278 (12.6%) had migraine with aura and 8901 (87.4%) had migraine without

51. Mutation in the neuronal voltage-gated sodium channel SCN1A in familial hemiplegic migraine.

Mutation in the neuronal voltage-gated sodium channel SCN1A in familial hemiplegic migraine. BACKGROUND: Familial hemiplegic migraine is an autosomal dominant severe subtype of migraine with aura characterised by some degree of hemiparesis during the attacks. So far, mutations in two genes regulating ion translocation-CACNA1A and ATP1A2-have been identified in pedigrees with this disease. METHODS: To identify additional genes for familial hemiplegic migraine, we did a genome-wide linkage (...) analysis of two disease pedigrees without mutations in CACNA1A and ATP1A2. Ion channel genes in the candidate interval were analysed for mutations, and the functional consequences of the recorded sequence alteration were determined. FINDINGS: We identified a novel locus for familial hemiplegic migraine on chromosome 2q24. Sequencing of candidate genes in this region revealed a heterozygous missense mutation (Gln1489Lys) in the neuronal voltage-gated sodium channel gene SCN1A, mutations of which have
