  • 25 Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt as a Meteorologist: Medtronics Shunt Headaches Vaticinating Climatic Perturbation. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: How climatic changes induce VPS headaches remains unclear. Barometric changes have been reported to cause sinus engorgement [Kaliner 2009], somatic pain [Silove 2006] and can worsen anxiety and depression [Delyukov 1999]. Meteorological parameters may have induced or exacerbated her depression and anxiety, amplifying pain perception. Alternatively, barometric pressure can cause an increase in other somatic pains and stresses, which can augment awareness of additional, unrecognized somatic pains. It is also possible for barometric pressure to cause pain via nasal sinus or mucosal engorgement; thus, mimicking her VPS headache. Lastly, however unlikely, her pain may be a result of a transient VPS malfunction. The mechanism for such can be attributed to transient pressure changes caused by fluctuating blood pressure, inducing brief intrinsic intraperitoneal pressure changes. Nevertheless, querying patients suffering from VPS headacheswhether climatic changes play a role in their symptoms is warranted.Funding Acknowledgements: Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation.
  • Management of long-lasting phantosmia: a systematic review. [Journal Article]

  • Olfactory symptoms reported by migraineurs with and without auras. [Journal Article]
  • HHeadache 2016; 56(10):1608-1616
  • Fornazieri MA, Neto AR, … Doty RL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Odor-related disturbances were common symptoms of the 113 migraineurs, with nearly all reporting osmophobia. Perfume odor was the most common trigger for the migraine. The reported symptoms did not differ between patients with and without auras. Patients who experienced IOH appeared to fundamentally differ from those who did not experience IOH in terms of the incidence of osmophobia and odor-triggered crisis. Subjects who reported experiencing osmophobia and odor-triggered headache reported having worse olfactory acuity.
