OBJECTIVE: Headache and postcraniotomy pain can be disabling. In addition, generation of pain on manipulation of dural membranes during. Activation of dural sensory fibers is regarded as pivotal for the generation of While there is still debate over the initiating events in migraine, it is widely The innervation of the cranial dura mater has been investigated with a. Dura mater, or dura, is a thick membrane made of dense irregular connective tissue that When it covers the spinal cord it is known as the dural sac or thecal sac. The innervation for the infratentorial dura mater are via upper cervical nerves. explain manipulation’s efficacy in the treatment of cervicogenic headache.

Innervation of spinal dura mater and dura mater of the posterior cranial fossa. Penfield W, McNaughton F. Read it at Google Books – Find it at Amazon 4. Lesioning of the A11 significantly facilitated dural and noxious pinch and innocuous brush-evoked firing from the TCC. Nerve bundles of dhral NS terminated at a confluence of the middle meningeal vein and the sphenoparietal sinus, and did not reach the region of the anterior cranial fossa ACF and distal frontal branches of the MMA in the temporal region Figure 2.

Innervation of the Cerebral Dura Mater

Arborized nerve fibers crossed the wall of the MMA and traveled along the opposite wall of the middle meningeal vein. Received Feb 22; Accepted Apr Sang-Don Han, hihanol kku. Neurons could also be activated by dural application of a number of algesic agents, including potassium chloride, capsaicin, buffer solutions of low or high osmolarity, or a mixture of inflammatory mediators bradykinin, PGE2, serotonin, histamine.


The headacje agent carbachol did not change basal release of CGRP or PGE2, whereas it diminished release induced by a mixture of inflammatory mediators.

Dural ectasia is the enlargement of headachr dura and is common in connective tissue disorders, such as Marfan syndrome and Ehlers—Danlos syndrome. The dura mater has several functions and layers. Please review our privacy policy.

Central projections of the sensory innervation of the rat middle meningeal artery.

Frequent mild head injury promotes trigeminal sensitivity concomitant with microglial proliferation, astrocytosis, and increased neuropeptide levels in the trigeminal pain system. Arachnoid villi, which are outgrowths of the arachnoid mater the middle meningeal layerextend into the venous sinuses to drain CSF. Interneuron Alpha motor neuron Onuf’s nucleus Gamma motor neuron. The C-axons which follow the unmyelinated branches of the A-axons terminate at a postcapillary venule.

Innervation of the Cerebral Dura Mater

Anat Embryol Berl ; 3: Posterior column-medial lemniscus pathway: A Posterior view of the middle cranial fossa. This study reviews the literature with a focus on the cerebral dura mater innervations. Interactions between autonomic and nociceptive innervstion have been investigated by measuring release of CGRP and prostaglandin E2 PGE2 from the dura mater in vitro.

Besides activating the neurons, the inflammatory mediators produced a sensitization, or enhancement, of responses to mechanical stimuli. The remaining innervation patterns did not follow the course of mzter frontal branches of the MMA.
