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

By A.A. Skoromets, L.G. Zaslavsky and E.P. Evdoshenko

Abstract

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 (p<0.01). Blood flow in arteria carotid external did not change (p>0.05). 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
