Objective. Migraine is a common type of headache accompanied or preceded by signs of central and autonomic nervous system dysfunction. Autonomic dysfunction has been suggested to be a potential contributor to impaired cardiac diastolic function. Cardiac diastolic dysfunction is characterized by normal left ventricular contractility but impaired ventricular relaxation. It is a growing clinical entity implicated in morbidity and mortality due to heart failure. The aim of this study was to determine if any relationship exists between migraine and diastolic dysfunction.
