Rischio Cardio e Cerebrovascolare nell’Emicrania

DATI E CONTROVERSIE

In Europa e in USA questa linea di ricerche ha avuto ampissima risonanza, specialmente per quanto riguarda le lesioni evidenziabili a livello della sostanza bianca nel cervello. In USA si sono aperti molti blog che sottolineavano come l’emicrania non fosse più a lungo da considerarsi mero dolore ma una malattia neurologica che compromette l’organicità cerebrale. Si arriva forse all’allarmismo certo è che tali lesioni son presenti. Posson esser riportati alla spreading depression e quindi alla successiva reperfusion injury. Di sicuro, al momento, ci indicano la necessità di curare l’emicrania come vera malattia.
Se nel settore delle lesioni cerebrali le nostre osservazioni sono in linea con quelle realizzate in Europa ed in USA, i problemi cardiovascolari ci sembrano legati a una diatesi disfunzionale vegetativo dolorosa che ha un largo ventaglio di espressioni a cominciare dalla cosiddetta angina X. Inoltre, non concordiamo sul fatto che i triptani possan provocare angor o infarto miocardico se non in soggetti predisposti. A quanto diciamo si può obiettare che i cefalalgici potrebbero in realtà essere , anche per quanto noi stessi abbiamo detto, dei soggetti predisposti

KEYWORDS:

• migraine.
In this issue of THE JOURNAL, Kruit and colleagues1 provide important new data on the prevalence of brain infarction and white matter lesions in persons with migraine. The authors systematically recruited individuals with migraine with aura and migraine without aura as well as group-matched controls without migraine from the general Dutch population.

Abstract
The migraine-ischemia relationship is best understood in the context of the pathophysiology of migraine. Potential mechanisms of migrainous infarction (stroke occurring during migraine) include vasospasm, hypercoagulability, and vascular changes related to cortical spreading depression. Stroke occurring remote for the migraine attack may be related to arterial dissection, cardioembolism, and endothelial dysfunction. Endothelial dysfunction, a process mediated by oxidative stress

  1. Hello I am so happy I found your weblog, I really found
    you by error, while I was looking on Google for something else,
    Anyhow I am here now and would just like to say thank
    you for a tremendous post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the moment but I have saved it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the fantastic job.

  2. Only a smiling visitant here to share the love (:, btw great style and design . “He who will not reason is a bigot he who cannot is a fool and he who dares not is a slave.” by Sir William Drummond.
