• In-depth focus on migraine in adults
• Up-to-date evidence base for the treatment of migraine
• State-of-the-art overview of the biology of migraine
Migraine is a complex neurological disorder that is characterized by a complex neurobiology, clinical features that may overlap with over 300 causes of headache, and an association with major medical illnesses and comorbid diseases. This books draws upon the authors' vast clinical experience and exhaustive knowledge of the science of migraine and the practice of headache medicine and provides this knowledge in a comprehensive yet digestible format. While migraine is often a subject in other textbooks on headache, it is the sole focus of this volume. The authors provide an up-to-date overview of the evidence base and combine this with their experience and expertise to help practitioners make informed treatment decisions. This book also provides a glimpse into the future describing new treatment modalities, including neurostimulation technologies and biologics that are emerging as potentially valuable treatment options. The authors also deal extensively with the unique and complex management of migraine in women throughout the reproductive life cycle. For those looking for a practical, insightful, and in-depth review on the subject of migraine, there is no other option.
