stroke

Avatar n tn I recently had an MRI following an incidence of weakness and staggering gait. I was told I had a small stroke of the cerebellum (couldn't tell if it was old or new). I had another episode in 1996 where I lost the vision in one eye. The doctor said that even though the MRI showed signs of a stroke, it didn't explain either of my episodes. I have had an MRI/MRA, echocardiogram and an assortment of blood tests looking for clotting disorders.

Avatar n tn Happily, some of the outlandish voices have been somewhat stilled recently by the march of science. The still-to-be published research showing a high degree of efficacy of condoms in preventing HPV has taken wind from their sails.* And some of the more vocal rightist/populist organizations also have had to stand in support of the coming HPV vaccine, because they can't stand against cancer prevention.
469720 tn?1388146349 Peripheral Vascular Disease and Cardiovascular Disease affects over 12 million people in the US and the most concerning aspect of that high number is that most people are not diagnosed early. Our ability to successfully manage the process is significantly improved when the conditions are diagnosed early. Early identification is improved when the public is informed about the risk factors and symptoms of the disease.
Avatar n tn I have been asked to find a magazine that covers new developments in health and healthcare and especially new treatments, hospital updates, any sort of medical treatmnt current affairs. This is for a research project and I have been searching for something appropriate for weeks but there does not seem to be any magazine that fits. It is either way too general, like Prevention magazine, or way too specific and technical for a non-physician to understand.
Avatar f tn I had a very stressful move to Bulgaria from England, which included a month of camping outside and travelling across Europe in a very hot van for two weeks with all our pets, Id been here a week, bitten to death by mosquitos, had swollen ankles, had to sleep on an airbed whilst waiting for furniture, and then to top it all, I had a stroke, or so I was told, I lost my speech and ended up in a hospital where they hardly spoke English for a week.
Avatar n tn Second, what are the biggest risk factors for stroke? Clearly, prevention is the best policy, and even at the age of 26, I want to do everything I can to reduce any risk factors I may have. I'm in excellent shape, although I smoke cigarettes(working on quitting), and there's no family history of stroke (but type II diabetes runs in the family, although I don't have it).
Avatar m tn Although, frankly, in a review that I wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine* where we reviewed as much of this as we could, we found no cases of stroke or severe clotting related to testosterone therapy. Nevertheless, the risk exists, so we want to be careful about giving testosterone to men who already have a high hematocrit, such as those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or those who have a red-blood-cell disorder.

Avatar n tn Has anyone ever heard of this or have any idea what could have caused this and will it happen again?? We live in New England and my friend back in August saw a spider on her daughters face she swished it away but then we noticed a little red bump where the spider was and it had a whitish center. It was there for days. Could this have happened by a spider bite?? The doc's did not think so but it doesn't hurt to ask. PLEASE HELP US!!!!!
Avatar f tn Yesterday on the news they discussed cortical spreading depression causing migraines with aura. Now, I found a fairly new research topic of how cortical spreading depression alters the blood-brain barrier permeability activating brain MMPs. There was contemporaneous plasma protein leakage and brain edema. In the research, leakage was not detected in MMP-9 mice.
Avatar f tn There is no risk from the flying. Cabin pressure is maintained at 8,000 msl in most aircraft, 6,000 msl in others. These altitudes would have no affect on increasing the probability of additional dissection. I suspect that the reason they did not want you to fly is to insure that you were kept under observation because of the artery dissection. You are lucky to be alive. In the event of a worsening of the situation it is important that you be a "stones throw" away from a hospital.
Avatar f tn Eliquis which belongs to a class of drugs called Factor Xa inhibitors is a new generation oral anticoagulant / blood thinning drug and is expected to replace warfarin the current gold standard treatment for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation. The clinical data on Eliquis in atrial fibrillation is most impressive, when compared to Xarelto or Pradaxa.
Avatar m tn There are some new computer programs with vision simulators that try to help patients try to rehabilitate the use of lost peripheral vision mainly from stroke and there has be at least some encouraging, though limited, results with that.
Avatar n tn Call that office and let them know this is a matter of some importance. Hopefully, you can get this taken care of without the ER (though that office may suggest the ER). Remember, this forum can't substitute for medical advice, but at least hopefully you can get pointed in the right direction. Good luck. CCF MD mdf.
Avatar m tn The causes of stroke are multiple and could include embolism from the heart or other areas (such as the aorta or other parts of the body), bleeds, atherosclerosis of the blood vessels, vasculitis (or inflammatory processes affecting the blood vessels of the brain), and others. The prevention of stroke typically depends on what are the risk factors a patient has. These may include aspirin, certain blood thinners, or cholesterol-lowering medications.
