An estimated 11.7% of the U.S. population or nearly 38 million adults and children suffer from migraine headaches. A severe and highly debilitating type of headache, migraine is the third most common and eighth most disabling disease in the world. People who suffer from migraines often experience neurological symptoms such as nausea and visual disturbances. Despite optimal preventive and abortive pharmacologic treatment, as many as one-third of migraine patients experience refractory headaches and persistent symptoms.
Migraine Surgery by world-renowned plastic surgeon Bahman Guyuron reflects significant knowledge gleaned from 17 years of migraine research, pioneering development of nerve decompression surgery, and 2,500 migraine surgery procedures. With contributions from top neurologists and plastic surgeons, this state-of-the-art book is the only one on the market dedicated to the surgical treatment of migraines. The book begins with a brief history of migraines, followed by a concise overview covering clinical presentation, imaging, abortive, and preventive treatments such as over-the-counter and prescription medications, neurotoxin injections, peripheral nerve blocks, and neuromodulation.
