If you find an article (or articles) that offer just abstracts but that you'd like to read in their entirety, I may be able to find the full text for you elsewhere, as would, I bet, FH. Just let us know.

Patient receives first implant in U.S. to prevent cluster headaches
U.S. researchers implant a neurostimulator in a patient's cheek to provide relief from painful cluster headaches. This is the first time the device is being tested in the U.S, and hopes are high that the neurostimulator can short circuit the nerves that cause the debilitating headaches.

About 25% of patients who are prescribed sildenafil, the phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitor, for erectile dysfunction (ED) experience headaches. These migraine effects are well-described, including cluster headaches. We report the case of a man who experienced a cluster headache attack following each of 2 sildenafil doses. His symptoms were resolved by adding naproxen to his treatment regimen and changing his ED treatment from 50 mg of sildenafil to 5 mg of vardenafil. To our knowledge, no study has reported cluster headaches triggered by the less commonly used PDE-5 inhibitors, namely vardenafil and tadalafil. Urologists should be cautious in prescribing sildenafil to patients with ED and with a history of cluster headaches. In these patients, they should consider prescribing low-dose vardenafil or tadalafil instead. Failure to recognize sildenafil risks could result in unnecessary headache bouts in patients with a history of cluster headaches.
