Cause Of Brain Bleeding
Mom fell caused brain bleed 2+ months ago. Now has DVT distal peroneal. Treatment options? Blood thinners cause more brain bleeding? Mom is 79 yrs
IVC filter? I don't: know if ur mom is prone to falling & brain bleeds; if so, anticoagulants (blood thinners) r not a good idea - it increases the risk of a fatal brain bleed shd she fall again in the future. A better option may be an IVC filter (Greenfield filter) which will trap DVTs & keep it from getting to the lungs; however it tends to cause swelling in the legs (side effect may be wrse than cure). TTYD 4 advic ...Read more
Blood vessel disease: Defects of blood vessels in the brain can result in brain bleeding. The most common is avm, then aneurysms. These can be congenital or acquired. Some bleeding can be caused by high blood pressure. Bleeding disorders including homophilia and sickle cell can cause brain bleeding. Trauma and shaking will result in bleeding over or into the brain. Severe infections may cause bleeding as well. ...Read more
Would a mild head injury cause brain bleeding? Saw my doctor and have a mild concussion, said no CT scan is needed. Could this still happen?
Depends on cause: Brain bleeding can be caused by a variety of conditions. Some are sudden. Such as those from aneurysms, avms or hemorrhagic strokes, and produce severe headaches. Chronic bleeding into a subdural hematoma can cause constant pain. After a bleed, the breakdown products of blood can cause a chemical irritation and produce headaches chronically. Brain bleeding requires urgent attention. ...Read more
Cause of death: subdural haematoma, fall exasperated by anticoagulants. Father fell - brain bleeding caused brain squashing = death Explain please?
It pushes on brain: A subdural hematoma, as a result of a head injury, is a collection of blood between the covering of the brain and the surface of the brain. The bleeding after an injury fills the brain area very rapidly, compressing the brain with the pressure from the enlarging glob of blood (the hematoma). Our brains do not tolerate compression, which stops some of the normal brain functions, and then we die. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Premature?: Premature infants are subject to bleeding into their brains. These bleeds are given grades 1, 2, 3, 4. Grade 2 intraventricular hemorrhage (ivh) is blood into the ventricle but without dilation and without extension into the brain. Grade 3 is major blood throughout the ventricles with dilation. Grade 4 is bleeding into the substance of the brain. ...Read more
Location and degree: Tiny "lacunar" strokes which are pinpoint bleeds due to high blood pressure may go undetected whereas bleeding into the subarachnoid space from trauma, ruptured aneurysm, or congenital malformation may cause intense headache, seizure, coma and death. Depending on amount and location, a variety of stroke syndromes may occur. ...Read more
Brain bleeding: This is entirely dependent upon the location of the bleeding and the site of the bleeding. For example, you can have quite a large bleeding in the front of the brain on one side and the only symptom might be headache (or even no symptoms). A very small hemorrhage in certain locations deep in the brain can cause paralysis on one side of the body or even coma. ...Read more
Blood out of bounds: Brain bleeding exists whenever blood is present within the skull outside of the blood vessels (vein, artery, capillary). Blood can be in brain, in CSF spaces including ventricles, subarachnoid, subdural, or epidural. Damage is a function of volume, speed of accumulation and location of brain structures affected. Surgery is often needed. ...Read more
Yes: There are many different kinds of brain bleeding and there are guidelines out there for many of them. The american heart/stroke association has guidelines for intracerebral hemorrhage and subarachnoid hemorrhage. The neurocritical care society also has subarachnoid hemorrhage guidelines. The brain trauma foundation has guidelines for traumatic brain bleeds. Do you have a specific question? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Second, how much blood and what was the cause and what level or care did the child receive? Answers to these predict a range of lt effects from none to seizures to cognitive and/or comportmental abnormalities to hydrocephalus. And any of these issues can range in severity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not at all: Progressive intracranial bleeding can cause a diffuse and severe headache associated with nausea and vomiting, and can be very life threatening. A focal constant localized head pain is very uncharacteristic and would more likely represent migraine or other benign conditions. ...Read more
