MEASUREMENT OF BLOOD FLOW IN ARTERIA MENINGEA MEDIA OF PATIENTS WITH FREQUENT EPISODIC TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE NOT ASSOCIATED WITH PERICRANIAL TENDERNESS

Year: 2008, volume 4 Issue: №2 Pages: 95-99
Heading: Neurology Article type: Original article
Authors: E.P. Evdoshenko, L.G. Zaslavsky, A.A. Skoromets
Organization: St. Petersburg Medical University named after academician I.P.Pavlov
Summary:

Twenty seven patients with frequent episodic tension-type headache not associated with pericrania! tenderness (TTH) aged from 18 to 69 years old were examined. Arteria meningea media (AMM) and brachiocephalic arteries (BCA) were examined by supersonic power Doppler scanning during the paroxysm of headache and without the paroxysm of headache. Results: Blood flow in AMM of patients with TTH was significantly different during the paroxysm of headache and without the paroxysm of headache (p0.05). The pattern of hypoperfusion in AMM was displayed in two groups during the paroxysm of headache. The increase of average blood velocity (TAmx) in groups of patients with TTH in comparison with the control group.
