stroke

Avatar n tn Rapid assessment of acute ischemia is critical for the management of acute stroke patiens who may benefit from thrombolytics or neuroprotective therapeutics. Differentiation of acute from chronic stroke, which may all appear hyperintense on T2- Weighted Imaging(T2WI ), is essential in determining the management of patiens.
Avatar f tn The goal for the acute management of patients with stroke is to stabilize the patient and to complete initial evaluation and diagnostics within a certain time frame after the patient arrives in the hospital. Depending on the results and evaluation of the attending physician, critical decisions may focus on the individualized management of each patient, whether blood pressure control or determination of risk/benefit for thrombolytic intervention are initiated.

Avatar n tn m glad to read that I am not the only one with Thyroid issues! I am the proud mother of a new baby girl who is now 4 months old and I suffer from PPT, I had it with my first child and now I new the signs I acted fast and saw my endo. The problem is that I've been prescribed Tapazole to help me with the hyper stage until hypo sets in, and honestly, I'm really scared to take the medication. The list of side effects seem pretty severe. Is this the best process for me to take.

Avatar n tn In addition to management of the underlying causes, major considerations in acute treatment of increased ICP relates to the management of stroke and cerebral trauma.The standard modes of treatment are hyperventilation,controlling blood pressures with calcium channel blockers, reducing mass effect with craniotomies, inserting an extraventricular drain, medications like mannitol can also help. Consult your neurophysician for further assistance. Best.
Avatar m tn I had a minor (inguel? sp?) hernia repair one year ago and continue to experience acute discomfort-up-to-wincing pain in the crease of the groin when I sit. I assume the mesh "patch" that was inserted for the repair is irrititating or inflaming the tissue below the skin. Anyone have similar experience? Know of a cure or non-surgical fix?
Avatar n tn In April of 2007 I had bloodwork , suspecting Hyperthyroidism which runs in my family. I had no idea about PPT at the time. My thyroid levels were indicative of Hyperthyroidism. In June the Dr. then ordered the antibody tests and said they were inconclusive as to PPT and put me on propanalol for my excessive heart rate, palpitations and tremors.
Avatar m tn The most common causes of hemorrhagic stroke are hypertension, elderly age group, weakness in the artery wall in the brain and blood coagulation issues. After the acute management of the condition, stabilization of airway, breathing and circulation, the long-term therapy includes rehabilitation. Recovery is variable and hence different requirement of therapy for different patients. Care must be taken for repositioning her to avoid bedsores.
Avatar n tn Depending on how an MRI scan is completed it can show both acute and chronic strokes. Radiologists comment on the fact that there is no acute stroke either to indicate that they did special imaging to look for an acute stroke, or because this is a common reason to obtain a MRI of the brain. Chronic strokes can be seen with standard MRI techniques, and therefore the comment normal MRI excludes the presence of chronic strokes.
Avatar n tn My endo diagnosed me with PPT, but I am now 19 months postpartum and I am just now heading towards hypo after over a year of being hyper. I am wondering if I was possibly misdiagnosed. There are also other things that make me think this. I lost 7 lbs during the last month of my pregnancy and my daughter was born at 28 weeks gestation after fighting off preterm labor for 2 weeks. Is there any way to tell if this is another thyroid disorder besides ppt? Does it really matter?
Avatar f tn This is the only MRI done since his initial stroke. The MRI showed old infarct in pons area + acute infarct in anterior portion of corpus callosum + subacute infarct in the other side of the corpus callosum. It also showed lesions in the thalamic portion + basil ganglia. The neurologist resident stated that my dad had a TIA (or stroke) 2 weeks prior to his stroke on February 19,09 (at home-it was never noticed).
Avatar n tn Some of the symptoms your husband is experiencing are manifestations of a TIA. Statistically, about one-third of those who have a TIA will have an acute stroke some time in the future. Many strokes can be prevented by giving importance to the TIAs and treating underlying risk factors. The most important treatable factors linked to TIAs and stroke are high blood pressure, cigarette smoking, heart disease, carotid artery disease, diabetes, and heavy use of alcohol.

Avatar n tn Also drug of cchoice for the acute condition and then management. I prefer to manage in the most natural and conservative manner. Harriet L.
Avatar f tn As my father is affected by Acute Brain Stem Infarct (Pontine Stem Stroke) which has all the vital functions like breathing, swallowing, sleeping, thinking, movements etc. He got the stroke on 2nd Mar 2012 and now he is able to breath by himself. Swallowing is not properly done, so Ryle's tube is inserted through the nose for his feed. He is not able to move and he is bed - ridden. On 26th Mar 2013 he vomited some black particles through the Treacheostomy tube.

Avatar n tn I am at the early stages of PPT (I also have postpartum anxiety) my endocrinologist put me on Tapazole 2 weeks ago. I have a mild soar throat but I believe it's merely the remnants of a cold. However, I am losing an insane amount of hair, above the average hair loss due to postpartum. Is this the combo of thyroid, meds and postpartum... I'm on tapazole 10mg daily dose. Is there something I can do? I had my blood work done on Friday and WBC was normal... does it fluctuate easily?

Avatar f tn 1) Three punctate areas of acute infarction left parietal lobe. Multifocality concerning embolic disease. 2) Diffuse cerebral atrophy with ventriculomegaly. 3) Chronic posterior right parietal/occipital infarction. 4) Increased T2/FLAIR signal in the para ventricular and deep white matter is non-specific but most likely due to chronic small vessel ischemic change/chronic lacunar infarctions.
Avatar n tn My mother recently suffered an acute stroke after a mini-stroke two weeks earlier. While at the hospital the neurologist told our family that had they known she had atrial fibrillation in her first mini-stroke, they would have prescribed coumadin and the acute stroke would likely have been prevented. I was told by a geriatric nurse practitioner friend that they should have done the Holter EKG rather than the short EKG as it would have detected the atrial fibrillation.
Avatar f tn my mom is 72 3 weeks ago she came down with acute west nile and in the middle of that she had a stroke. A bleeder and it affected 25 % of her left side brain. she is having severe headaces. Can't move her right side, can't eat or drink. The drs. are going to start intense rehab. Is there a chance for recovery or are we just biding time. I want to give her every chance possible. I quess I may be in a state of shock just looking for answers.
Avatar m tn If my memory serves me right, acute ischemic event is just the medical jargon for a stroke. Congratulations, it looks like you are in the clear.
Avatar m tn You may have postpartum thyroiditis (PPT). PPT is considered a "temporary"/self-resolving thyroiditis. It usually starts with a hyper phase, followed by a return to normal and then a hypo phase. However, many women only experience the hypo or the hyper, not both. TSI (thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin) is the antibody marker for Graves'. If you have that tested, and it's elevated, you'll know you have Graves'.
