Abstract

Introduction. The authors of the article published in the current edition a single-centre prospective cohort study featuring patients who had undergone a diagnostic cerebral angiography procedure and who had experienced a headache associated with the procedure [1]. The authors of ‘Clinical features and risk factors of angiography headache and evaluation of its relationship to primary headaches’ have addressed a common, but rarely discussed, problem of a headache associated with a cerebral angiography procedure – the angiography headache (AH).

Clinical reflections. AH was found in almost a quarter of the patients who had undergone angiography, and was found to be associated with female gender, higher education level, and a history of primary headache.

Clinical implications. It is worth remembering that migraine and tension type headaches are common predisposing factors to headache during and after this procedure.
