2175879 tn?1338355028 My MRI results came in. This time my neurologist actually found proof that I had a stroke. First they thought it was a TIA, then an ear ache, and then I kinda forced the issue, they did another MRI and actually found a small "disruption" on my right side of my brain. I can't tell you how relieved that makes me.

306209 tn?1192818127 My brother just had a stroke (blockage of oxygen to the right side of his brain)... he is 61 & 1/2 years olds... they just checked his heart (angiogram) and we were told he has a "hole" in his heart and they will have to do surgery to fix it... what came first??? the heart problem or the stroke??? did the heart problem cause the stroke because there wasn't enough oxygen to the right side of his brain because of a possible "clot" from his heart?...

Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements. Though she is chronic diabetic and had bye pass surgery six years back her major organs are functioning normally. It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in?

Avatar n tn to meet criteria it has to move 1cm from the midline. The combination of a PFO and a septal aneurysm has been showed to increase the risk of stroke. It is debateable how best to treat this but most cardiologists put people with these findings on a full dose aspirin (325mg)daily; if there has been a stroke we would consider anticoagulation with a blood thinner.
Avatar f tn What is the difference between Ischemic stroke and myocardial infarction? I have PR 232 ms. What does it signify?
Avatar m tn This happens by a system of vasodilation and vasoconstriction coupled with the pumping rate and stroke volume of the heart. Rather than make frequent changes in volume, the body changes the configuration of the total container (all the vessels) and increases the speed at which the resource is renewed.
469720 tn?1388146349 Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle.

Avatar f tn My mother had a watershed stroke while in cardiac arrest.

No acute hemorrhagic transformation detected.
Avatar n tn Assuming that she has no atrial fibrillaiton, which is also a common cause of stroke, I would have to say, based on the temporal relationship, that the stroke happened during the surgery. If in two years she has not recovered any function, it is unlikely that she will at this point.
Avatar n tn My husband has had Arrhythmia for about a year and a half. It started out and would come when ever. He has had a electrophesiaologist study done and is on beta blockers only when it occurs. The studys didn't pin point where his heart was misfiring and they said there was no reason why it is going on. About 3 months now it comes for 2 weeks and then it is gone for 2 weeks. Why the pattern? His Arrhythmia is like his heart skips a beat. I can put my head on his chest and hear it.
Avatar n tn You can't measure stroke volume with the heart rate. Stroke volume is the amount of blood that your left ventricle pumps out with each heart beat. If you multiply the stroke volume by the heart rate you get your cardiac output.
Avatar n tn Because there was an open heart surgery done and he was still under observation during the diagnosis of stroke, it is difficult to conduct a clinical evaluation. Laboratory tests may help but treatment usually depends on how severe the stroke was and what caused it. Medications such as blood thinners may also help as well as seeking another neurologist's opinion may be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
