PHILADELPHIA — A link between migraine history and risk for stroke, heart attack and other CVD was not found in postmenopausal women, according to study results presented at the American Headache Society Annual Scientific Meeting.
“The evidence for the relationship between migraine and CVD has been conflicting, depending on aura status, age of the population and CVD outcomes examined. While risk appears to be the highest in younger women, the relationship has so far not been extensively examined in older postmenopausal women who are at the highest risk of experiencing CVD events,” Jelena M. Pavlovic, MD, assistant professor of neurology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and colleagues wrote.
