SEE NEUROLOGIST: There are several possible causes, and these include arteritis/vasculitis, multiple sclerosis, lyme disease, sjogren's, etc. Spinal fluid analysis may be necessary. Get diagnosed asap, and start treatment without delay. Changing your diet will not help this, you need medical care. We have loads of therapies to reverse and/or control all of this. ...Read more

Please explain simply what is mild concentric ventricular hypertrophy with mild left atrial dilation?

Please explain simply what is mild concentric ventricular hypertrophy with mild left atrial dilation?

Left heart large: The main pumping chamber of the heart ( l ventricle) is evenly increased in size so that the pumping cavity is a bit smaller. The priming pump ( l atrium) is mildly enlarged. This is very likely due to uncontrolled high BP over many years. Because it is mild i would not expect any symptoms or functional difficulty at all. Treatment is to control bp. ...Read more

Causes of isolated right lateral ventricular of brain enlargement presenting with convulsion in a adult diabetic male?

Causes of isolated right  lateral ventricular of  brain  enlargement presenting with convulsion in a adult diabetic male?

Munro doctrine: Blockage of the opening of lateral ventricle into third ventricle (foramen of munro) has occurred. Rarely this can be due to migration of choroid plexus, into the opening. However certain benign tumors and cysts can also block this. Also brain tumors adjacent to the structure may blockade it. Sudden ventricular distention might cause seizure but low blood sugar is a more frequent cause. ...Read more

Which is worse right sides ventricular dilation or left sided dilation. Does Asd tend to run in families?

Which is worse right sides ventricular dilation or left sided dilation. Does Asd tend to run in families?

Depends: Like sticks and stones both of which can break your bones, heart failure whether right or left can be serious or mild depending on the cause and how severe it is. Your doctor can best tell you what's going on. The cause of ASD (atrio-septal defect) and many other congenital heart defects is unknown.

Can you please advise what is the prognosis for acute haemorrhage in right thalamic region with extension in ventricular region causing dilation ?

Can you please advise what is the prognosis for acute haemorrhage in right thalamic region with extension in ventricular region causing dilation ?

Can't advise: Unfortunately, the person whose results you are quoting has had a stroke; and only those who are able to examine can give you an idea of the prognosis. And it may change with time. Do ask. ...Read more

Can having a ventricular septal defect correction operation (patch applied) in 1989, cause demyelination in my brain after? If so, how does it?

Can having a ventricular septal defect correction operation (patch applied) in 1989, cause demyelination in my brain after? If so, how does it?

Separate problems: If you had successful vsd surgery and no problems afterwards, then this is unrelated. Brain injury can occur during surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass but typically these effects present differently than you describe and are not typical after vsd surgery. ...Read more

"a small region of hypodensity is noted in white matter of superior to right para ventricular that can suggest focal ischemic area" iCT of brain. mean?

"a small region of hypodensity is noted in white matter of superior to right para ventricular that can suggest focal ischemic area" iCT of brain. mean?

Cerebral ischemia: Focal ischemia indicates a specific region in the brain that has not gotten sufficient oxygen. It can be due to uncontrolled hypertension, trauma, stroke, atherosclerosis, etc. MRI is better than CT for imaging the brain. If you have concerning neurological symptoms, see a neurologist for further evaluation. http://sullydog.com/sullysites/qm/brainischemia101syllabus/syllabus/presentation1_9_1.html ...Read more

Your : Your ct findings are suggestive of cerebrovascular disease, which is usually caused by atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Smokers and people with uncontrolled hypertension or high cholesterol are commonly affected by cerebrovascular disease. The areas around your brain's ventricles (these are simply hollow chambers within your brain) are particularly susceptible to the reduced blood flow caused by this condition -- hence the "peri-ventricular ischemic change." the area of decreased density in your left frontal lobe could be due to a "lacunar infarct" (i.e., a small stroke), which is another common complication of cerebrovascular disease. Your doctor can help you sort through the potential causes of (and treatment for) cerebrovascular disease. If you're a smoker, quitting would be of great benefit to your brain. I hope things go well for you! ...Read more

What does parietal periventricular signal alteration on a brain MRI mean?

What does parietal periventricular signal alteration on a brain MRI mean?

A change: There is a change in the signal in the tissue that surrounds the brain ventricles. That is not very specific. For example as we get older than say 20? then this finding may become more prominent. It also depends on why you had the study done in the first place. It may reflect why you are having symptoms. To put it all together talk to your doctor. ...Read more
