Les algies cranio-faciales : du diagnostic à la prise en charge thérapeutique

Abstract : Headache is a public health problem, with serious social and economic impact. Craniofacial pain syndromes are only part of it, but are associated with chronic severe pain and high disability. Pain medication is potentially associated with addiction, side effects and inefficiency. Then, alternatives treatments have been developed under imaging guidance, with the GON as the reference target. The objective of this manuscript is to review the epidemiology and clinical setting of craniofacial pain syndromes, the anatomy and physiopathology of the GON and the existing available techniques targeting the GON. Management of craniofacial pain is based on GON block, essential step before any other procedure. GON infiltration, denervation or neuromodulation have showed to be effective in the treatment of occipital neuralgia, cervicogenic headaches, cluster headache, trigeminal neuralgia and chronic migraine. Interventional pain procedures are commonly performed under imaging guidance, improving reproducibility, safety, technical and clinical success.
