Aspirin Hemorrhagic Stroke
Unpredictable reactions to Aspirin including: 1) acute asthma in persons with nasal polyps and persistent asthma; 2) anaphylactic reactions; 3) hives and/or angioedema; 4) flare of hives in 25% of persons with chronic hives. Skin or blood tests are of no help with diagnosis. Usually not believed to be ige mediated, but instead related to lipoxygenase ...Read more
Pathophysiology: Ischemic stroke occurs when an artery to the brain is blocked.A thrombotic stroke occurs when diseased or damaged cerebral arteries become blocked by the formation of a blood clot within the brain. An embolic stroke is also caused by a clot within an artery, but in this case the clot (or emboli) forms somewhere other than in the brain itself. Hemorrhagic stroke is sudden bleed into the brain. ...Read more
Somewhat: Hemorrhagic strokes can be associated with high blood pressure, which can be controlled. There may also be weakened blood vessels (aneurysms) but, unless family history, screening for these is less than fruitful. The other major cause is head trauma - which obviously has potential to be prevented. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends: This is a complex question. It depends on what percent of is already showing signs of infarction (dead brain) rather than just ischemia (brain at risk).... When we see > 1/3 of territory abnormal on initial ct scan, it is a contraindication for tpa (alteplase). It also depends on how long the symptoms have been occurring. But to answer your question, theoretically all could potentially benefit. ...Read more
66yr/ m congestive heart failure, stroke, pulmonary embolism, then 2nd massive hemorrhagic stroke, surgery to repair, fell into coma. prognosis?
Opposites: Hemophilia is a defect of blood coagulation such that the blood does not clot. Heart attacks and strokes are a result of clots forming in the arteries feeding the heart and brain respectively. These latter clots can be formed locally due to damage to the blood vessels or an increased clotting tendency, or from clots that embolize from somewhere else in the body. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Elderly lady had stroke due to blood clot. Has brain swelling. In a coma. Stroke induced. Chances of survival?
Possible: It is possible to develop a stroke during carotid stent placement (~ 4% in optimal patients). However the carotid stent is effective at preventing further strokes and that is why they are placed. At this point carotid stents are reserved for patients who are at high risk for open carotid endarterectomy (surgery). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Depends: Studies have been done comparing the two. Aggrenox seems superior in preventing recurrent stroke or tia's, but Plavix (clopidogrel) has more research on heart disease and periph vasc problems. Plavix (clopidogrel) is generic now and cheaper, but doesn't work well in pts with certain genetics, and interacts adversely with some ulcer drugs. Aggrenox has aspirin, which may be a problem with some. ...Read more
TIA or STROKE: Tia or stroke are due to atherosclerosis of carotid arteries, or clot coming from heart. The majority of these processes happens in people with high blood pressure or diabetes. Both of these diseases has some genetical components. Several other reason people develop stroke like, smokers, in people with cancer, or autoimmune diseases. Most of those reasons has some genetic components. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can isosorbide trinitrate (iv) given to pat. With hypertensive crisis and intracerebral hemorrhage?
Typically NO: Most brain hemorrhages are due to uncontrolled hypertension. Other common causes include cocaine/amphetamines, tumors that bleed, arteriovenous malformations, aneurysm rupture, anti-coagulant medications, trauma, embolic strokes that bleed and some brain infections.. The complete list is long. Some hereditary conditions that affect the integrity of blood vessel walls, increase bleeding risk. ...Read more
Warafin clopidogrel aspirin given Hospital patient 89yrs has COPD stroke and heart attack will need limit Vegetables high chance of bleed?
See comments: Are you referring to radiology reading of an MRI of brain? In elderly, often thought that white matter lesions are associated with "microvascular angiopathy", sign of potential atherosclerosis. Maybe potential stroke risk, especially lacunar infarct, but not straightforwards. Your physician needs to assess stroke risk. Spots more likely from migraine or prior injury. ...Read more
Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia is also known as osler-weber-rendu syndrome, is a rare genetic disorder that leads to abnormal blood vessel formation in the skin, mucous membranes, and organs. It may lead to nosebleeds, acute and chronic digestive tract bleeding, and various other ...Read more
