  • include
  • Risk factors for PCH may include age, gender, and previous history of headaches have been disputed and remain in question. (statpearls.com)
  • Therefore, options for consideration include the use of typical medications seen in the treatment of headaches with similar phenotypes. (statpearls.com)
  • Each class of headache contains explicit diagnostic criteria-meaning that the criteria include quantities rather than vague terms like several or usually-that are based on clinical and laboratory observations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other symptoms may include headache, confusion, vomiting, and an inability to move parts of the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • typically
  • Five years after the surgery (at the age of 43), she reported daily headaches which were located in the frontoparietal region and were typically severe (visual analog scale=9 (VAS)) and throbbing. (scielo.br)
  • It is a headache usually made worse by standing, typically becoming prominent throughout the day, with the pain becoming less severe when lying down. (wikipedia.org)
  • scar
  • Thus, it is important to assess the scar site on physical exam and evaluate for reproduction of headache pain with palpation. (statpearls.com)
  • aneurysms
  • Unruptured aneurysms that present with cranial nerve compression or headache or are known radiographically to be rapidly expanding are also considered urgent type cases. (neurologyadvisor.com)
  • Therefore, aneurysms may be more favorable for craniotomy and clipping if the approach requires only a simple craniotomy as opposed to an extensive skull base approach, and if the vessels at risk can be readily visualized and protected. (neurologyadvisor.com)
  • pulsatile
  • primary exertional headache: throbbing, pulsatile pain which starts during or after exercising, lasting for 5 minutes to 24 hours. (wikipedia.org)
  • frequency
  • She reported important reduction in the frequency of her headaches, from daily to around once a month. (scielo.br)
  • Regression coefficient of PedMIDAS score or categories of headache frequency on eating behaviour subscale scores, with covariates of Achenbach Child Behavior Checklist score, current BMI, age, sex, length of history of migraine. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • tension-type hea
  • A 48-year-old woman with a past history of tension-type headache had surgery for aneurism clipping (left middle cerebral artery) at the age of 41. (scielo.br)
  • drainage
  • The main management options are: observation, craniotomy for microsurgical resection, neuroendoscopic removal, stereotactic drainage, and cerebrospinal fluid diversion with bilateral ventriculoperitoneal shunting placement. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • its been 10 months since my surgery and it seems like ive had a headache everyday since. (medhelp.org)
  • Our main hypothesis is that subcutaneous sumatriptan (6mg) administered at the end of surgery will improve the postoperative quality of recovery at 24 hours after elective minimally invasive craniotomies. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • resection
  • He underwent craniotomy with resection of the majority of the lesion, though with measurable small volume residual disease. (asco.org)
  • The main management options are: observation, craniotomy for microsurgical resection, neuroendoscopic removal, stereotactic drainage, and cerebrospinal fluid diversion with bilateral ventriculoperitoneal shunting placement. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumors
  • For cases with cribriform plate involvement, tumors are resected bilaterally using a transfacial and craniotomy approach. (wikipedia.org)
  • Headaches may also accompany pituitary tumors, as well as pituitary apoplexy (infarction or haemorrhage of a pituitary tumor) and lymphocytic hypophysitis (autoimmune inflammation of the pituitary). (wikipedia.org)
  • Secondary headaches are caused by an underlying disease, like an infection, head injury, vascular disorders, brain bleed or tumors. (wikipedia.org)
  • sudden
  • Apoplexy, in addition to sudden headaches and rapidly worsening visual loss, may also be associated with double vision that results from compression of the nerves in the adjacent cavernous sinus that control the eye muscles. (wikipedia.org)
  • patient
  • The patient underwent emergency right frontal craniotomy and placement of an external ventricular drain. (ukessays.com)
  • Herein, we report a case of 18-year-old astroblastoma female patient who presented with history of two months headache. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • Pain
  • Treatment of a headache depends on the underlying cause, but commonly involves pain medication. (wikipedia.org)
  • While primary headaches may cause significant daily pain and disability, they are not dangerous. (wikipedia.org)
  • primary stabbing headache: recurrent episodes of stabbing "ice pick pain" or "jabs and jolts" for 1 second to several minutes without autonomic symptoms (tearing, red eye, nasal congestion). (wikipedia.org)
  • primary exertional headache: throbbing, pulsatile pain which starts during or after exercising, lasting for 5 minutes to 24 hours. (wikipedia.org)
  • The mechanism behind these headaches is unclear, possibly due to straining causing veins in the head to dilate, causing pain. (wikipedia.org)
  • minutes
  • primary cough headache: starts suddenly and lasts for several minutes after coughing, sneezing or straining (anything that may increase pressure in the head). (wikipedia.org)
