Burr Hole Complications
Could u please explain the complications of burr hole evacuation... Whether there is any relation with neck stability in children..?
Unrelated: A burr hole is a hole drilled through the bone of the skull. This will allow the neurosurgeon to insert needles or catheters or fiber optic instruments in order to take out or evacuate something abnormal. The hole left will be able to be felt even when all else has healed. There is no association that i know of with neck stability problems. ...Read more
Depends: If everything is healed up and there have been no neurological sequelae, it should be fine. If the neurological status has returned to normal and there are no problems with wound healing and there are no problems with seizures, it is not uncommon for people to travel. Obviously, they should travel with friends/family who are available to help.Probably shouldn't drive until released by neurosurgeon. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Hopefully this has been decided by your parents before it is necessary . That is what a will is for. Parents usually choose the child who they feel should be in charge and that may or may not be the oldest. Being firstborn doesn't rest that responsibility on one just by virtue of birth order...Unless you are an only child. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Subdural hematoma: I assume you have the bur hole as the subdural hematoma was treated? If your follow up CT scan was negative for hematoma then you are cleared. If there is still a hematoma causing pressure on the brain then you need to speak to the neurosurgeon that did the procedure about further treatment. ...Read more
Do parents whose child died and have donated the organs get to keep the body for burial or cremation?
I fell and hit my head on cement and ended up with a subdural heamatoma i had to have burr hole surgery to fix itis it likely to return been over a yr?
Unlikely : In a young person who is otherwise healthy and who is not on anticoagulants, it is unlikely for the subdural hematoma to return. If it has been over a year and there have not been any new symptoms (headache, nausea/vomiting, weakness) and if the post-operative scan does not have residual, it is very unlikely. However, if there are future head injuries, you are at the same risk as anyone else. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can my untreated teeth be detrimental to my health? I have over $8000 worth of work to get done. With $0 i'm afraid my health will start deteriorating i'm only 25 years old. Should i start making my burial arrangements?
Or are there any dentists that do
Yes, detrimental: See if there is a dental school near you . The treatment is much less expensive -- what you save in money, you pay in time. It takes longer for treatment. You also might find a clinic at a hospital that has a teaching program for postdoctoral dental training. (gpr or aegd). Good luck -- no burial yet ! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
