Title: Influence of visual stimulation on cerebral blood flowand visual evoked potentials in children with migrainewith and without aura in the interictal phase


Introduction: Migraine is common in children, however its pathogenesis is still not clear. Aim of the study: Exploration of migraine pathogenesis and determination of transcranial Doppler usefulness in diagnostics of migraine in children. Material and methods: Children at the age range 8-18 years, 62 with migraine with aura, 17 with migraine without aura and 31 in the control group were included into the study. Cerebral blood flow parameters with the use of TCD and visual evoked potentials were registered. Results: There were no statistically significant differences in changes of cerebral blood flow parameters evoked by visual stimulation found between migraine with aura, migraine without aura and control group. Significant difference was found between migraine with visual aura (also associated with sensory and/or dysphasic symptoms) and without visual aura (with sensory and/or dysphasic aura and basilar type migraine). In migraine correlations were found between differences of cerebral blood flow parameters measured at different time of visual stimulation than in the control group. Only in migraine correlations between cerebral blood flow parameters measured directly after beginning of visual stimulation were found. The higher number of correlations was found in migraine with visual aura without other aura symptoms. Conclusions: 1. In patients with visual aura vascular reactivity in response to visual stimulation is higher than in patients without visual aura. 2. In migraine patients neurovascular coupling is different than in control group. 3.TCD is helpful in exclusion of CNS pathology in children with migraine.
