Rheoencephalography with Nitroglycerin Test in Migraine

  • Maria M. Wysocka-Bakowska


As is well known, it has been hypothesized that migraine attacks are associated with cerebral ischemic and hyperemic phases, and that vascular mechanisms may play an essential if not primary role in the pathogenesis of migraine [5,6].
