A network of arteries supplying blood flow to the brain is more likely to be incomplete in people who suffer migraines, according to a new study by researchers in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The study, published in the journal PLOS One, found that abnormal arteries triggered migraines in more than two out of three people who suffer from them.
“People with migraine actually have differences in the structure of their blood vessels – this is something you are born with,” said the study’s lead author, Brett Cucchiara, MD, an associate professor of Neurology, University of Pennsylvania.
