Abstract

The diagnostic criteria for primary stabbing headache (PSH) in the 3rd beta edition of International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICDH-3 beta) were recently revised. In the ICDH-3 beta, PSH is defined as short-lasting head pain spontaneous occurring as a single stab or series of stabs without autonomic symptoms and involving all head areas (i.e., not limited to the ophthalmic branch region of the trigeminal nerve). The aim of this study was to investigate the validity of the ICHD-3 beta criteria for PSH in a clinic-based setting. We prospectively collected data from patients with complaint of headache with stabbing pain without apparent cause at an initial visit to a secondary-care hospital from March 2009 to March 2014. Patients were followed up for 2 weeks to assess changes in clinical characteristics and secondary causes of pain. Data from 280 patients with headache with stabbing pain without apparent cause were collected, and 245 patients were followed up for 2 weeks. Secondary causes for stabbing headache were observed in 9 patients (herpes zoster in 7 patients and Bell's palsy in 2 patients) after 2 weeks. The remaining 236 patients fulfilled the diagnostic criteria for PSH according to ICHD-3 beta. Only 22 patients met the diagnostic criteria for PSH according to ICHD-2. All patients with headache with stabbing pain without cranial autonomic symptoms fulfilled the diagnostic criteria for PSH according to ICHD-3 beta at the initial visit. Secondary causes for headache with stabbing pain were revealed in a small proportion (3.7 %) of patients after 2 weeks of follow-up.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 10. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 14 March 2016.
All research outputs
#1,319,147
of 12,229,156 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Headache & Pain
#132
of 728 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#44,180
of 285,453 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Headache & Pain
#6
of 30 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,229,156 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 89th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 728 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.9. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 285,453 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 30 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
