Cerebral Apoplexy In Children
No: In-utero stroke patients come in all shapes and sizes. Some strokes are large and occur late in the pregnancy and can produce significant problems in the child including cp. Other strokes may be small and occur early enough in the pregnancy that the brain can repair itself before the child is born, and the child will develop perfectly normally. Most cases and outcomes lie in between these examples. ...Read more

Does a sroke in the left anterior cerebral territory and deep white matter cause central post stroke pain syndrome?
Central pain: Central pain from stroke typically follows thalamic strokes. This part of the brain not in the anterior cerebral territory however this does serve the orbital frontal cortex that could in theory cause some changes in how your brain processes pain. Stroke in young adults requires an extensive workup including a hypercoagulable evaluation. Best health. ...Read more
My wife was diagnosed with
2.Multiple strokes in the cerebral mca
3. Peduncle stroke. Where can I more info on the strokes
This aged, disabled person, a consequence of a catastrophic cerebral event, or “stroke“, has been relegated to a wheelchair …in a nursing facility. Having objected to placement in that facility it has falsely alleged this disabled person is “..Incapacit
This : This appears to be primarily a legal matter and i suggest to contact an attorney who is knowledgeable in this area. Since the issue of capacity of that individual has been raised, it may be helpful to obtain an opinion of a geriatric psychiatrist as to the nature of that individual's disability. Oftentimes a stroke could significantly affect the person's speech and hence the ability to communicate while leaving the ability to think, reason and make informed decisions intact. Distinguishing between these possibilities could be important in planning future care for this individual. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What's the difference between a cerebral vascular accident (stroke) & a transient ischaemic attack (tia)?
Definitive damage: A TIA describes stroke like symptoms that resolve without other intervention within a short timespan, usually less than 1 hour although the classic definition uses 24 hours. A stroke describes irreversible brain tissue damage caused by a lack of blood flow (technically a bleed is also a form of stroke). This damage can be diagnosed definitively on a MRI scan, no such damage can be seen in the tia. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Mechanisms: Usually, represents narrowing and closure of a large artery such as carotid or middle cerebral, but can be due to a clot circulating from a distant source, such as heart. A myocardial event might trigger a stroke in a susceptible older patient, and, in some cases, trauma can tear a blood vessel in neck (dissection). Causes include smoking, hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipemia, high homocysteine. ...Read more
Words: Pathogenesis is the origin or development of a disease. Ischemic stroke is damaged brain tissue due to loss of circulation (like from a clot)(as opposed to stroke from bleeding). Left cerebral hemisphere is the dominant area in most people and usually controls speech and right sided motor functions. ...Read more
Hot is cold cold is hot pain all over focusing at the cerebral cortex could this be a sign i had a stroke? If no what else can cause this
Not Clear: It seems that you are saying that you have abnormal/unexpected sensations over a part of your head or scalp. The actual cerebral cortex can't been seen(except at surgery) and doesn't have sensation. What you seem to be describing on the scalp sounds like a local peripheral neuropathy. This means there may be some nerves in the scalp that are transmitting abnormal sensations. ...Read more
It can be: CP is defined as a disorder of motion & posture based on an injury to the developing nervous system at any point from the early stages of pregnancy up to the 3rd birthday. A stroke in utero is that sort of injury.Such issues as cord events, where the flow of blood was pinched off for a period & intrauterine infection are other possible causes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a cerebral stroke 2yrs back.doesnt hav physical disability.now often sudden blood clots appear on body and wipe away automatically?
Minimize stroke risk: About 7% of women ages 60-79 have an ischemic stroke, with a .2 to .5% risk of a new stroke per year. Having had a stroke or another type of blood clot does increase the risk of having another stroke. Other risk factors for persistent clots include high cholesterol, hypertension, smoking, obesity, diabetes, drug use, and lack of exercise: thankfully all of these can be treated or addressed! ...Read more
Can you tell me how the diagnosis would be made whether a stroke was caused by hemorrhage or other cerebral infraction (thrombus/embulus)?
CT or MRI : A Brain CT scan would show if there is a brain hemorrhage but it does not show other causes of stroke well soon after it occurs. A brain MRI is the best test to see stroke soon after it occurs and show if caused by blood spillage or lack of blood flow. It can also show how long ago a stroke happened (new vs. old) ...Read more
Had cerebral stroke 2 yrs bck.nw sudden blood clots appear & wipe away automatically on body.bp s nrmal.regularly take medicn fr bp& cholesterol.
No connection,: probably. Of course you had a "cerebral" stroke; there isn't any other kind of stroke. I don't see a connection between the 2 things. Are they blood CLOTS or little bleeds that THEN clot? That makes more sense. The only connection I can see is if you're taking an antithrombotic e.g. aspirin, clopidogrel, warfarin etc. That may be causing little superficial veins in your skin to bleed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
That's irrelevant: You're making a common layperson's mistake: You're confusing a correlative marker with the thing itself. The presence of cerebral atrophy either during life in imaging or pathologically after death tells you nothing by itself. What matters is how well a brain WORKS, not how it looks. It doesn't really matter how the brain of someone in PVS looks. What matters is the PVS. A fate worse than death. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

70 yr female- diagnosed small vessel brain disease, cerebral athropy - stroke 10yrs ago balance and walking bad need cane what is prognosis ?
Manage risks: Cerebrovascular small vessel disease builds over decades; we can't reverse it, but we can manage risk factors that caused it. Keep blood pressure on target. Manage blood sugar, prevent diabetes. Keep cholesterol & lipids on target. Do aerobic exercise at least 3 days/ week, more is better. Limit alcohol to 1 drink a day or less. Eat a healthy diet; limit fats, sodium & sweets. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In an article in the american heart and stroke association enlarged perivascular spaces on MRI are a feature of cerebral small vessel disease. True?
Not necessarily: Generally, when one speaks about enlarged perivascular spaces, that is just what it is. A larger space around the vessels as they travel in the arachnoid space in the brain. These are often called virchow robin spaces and are normal variant. Sometimes, small vessel disease can lead to microinfarcts that lead to atrophy.This loss of volume can lead to the appearance of larger perivascular spaces. ...Read more
Diplopia, squeezing band of pressure in head, absent L posterior inferior cerebral artery. chol/hdl calc 6.7. FH mutation. could this cause stroke/tia?
No: Minor anatomic variants of the arteries in the back part of the brain are no big deal. Most of us pathologists think the "MTHF" mutation testing is subscience at best -- it's being pushed by one lab to lawyer-shy physicians and a majority of folks are told they "have a mutation" and need vitamins from the company. TIA / stroke come on suddenly and dramatically. I suspect this is migraine variant. ...Read more
I understand that warfarin reduces the risk of a heart attack and ischaemic stroke. But does it significantly increase the risk of a cerebral hemorrhage?
Yes: Assuming the person has atrial fibrillation, the benefit of fewer strokes exceeds the risk of cerebral bleeding. There is an alternative which is to close the left atrial appendage where clots form, so anticoagulation is no longer needed. This is done through a devise inserted through the groin. Aspirin 81mg also reduces stroke risk with low risk of bleeding. STATIN is very beneficial with no blee ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Cardiologist said,i may have small PFO due to Migraine Aura but not seen on Echo Q:Small PFO?Smaller than a cerebral artery?So if a clot goes through it you won't have a stroke?His reply in email "Ask Neurologist no cardio investigations are needed"
This makes no sense: to me. How was diagnosis of PFO made if not by ECHO? Migraine Aura is not a sign of PFO. The PFO would have to be smaller than 8 microns (a single red blood cell) to say you would not have potential for a CVA. I don't see how a neurologist will be able to assist you in this question. Are you certain he said you have a PFO? Is this all just to decide if you will take ASA? ...Read more
Ischemic stroke at 90, pelvic fracture and cerebral contusion at 92. If risk of bleeding from falling > risk of tia/stroke from clot, baby aspirin ok?
Judgement: There's no answer to your question. No one has collected a series of 5, 000 people like you and tested the two options. This is where having a doctor whom you trust and who knows your history and all about you makes all the difference. (your question exemplifies why computers are never going to be able to practice medicine!). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends on the area: Strokes cause brain damage, but the symptoms a patient experiences will vary based on the location of the brain damage. If it affects the part of the brain controlling movement, it will cause weakness. If it affects the part controlling vision, it will cause vision problems. Most commonly strokes present with face, arm or leg weakness, sensory or visual disturbances, and/or speech difficulty. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Stroke: Lack of blood supply to brain tissue either by ischemic stroke of hemorrhagic stroke cause deprivation of oxygen supply. This cause permanent damage of the brain substance causing neurological deficit. With time damaged brain turns into necrotic substance.Finally dead tissues desolves and replaced by brain fluid. ...Read more
MRI: The best way to know that someone had a stroke is doing a brain MRI. If someone had a stroke it means that a part of the brain died do to lack of blood flow or rupture of a blood vessel with blood spilling. Recovery occurs by other parts of the brain taking over. Medically, we use "brain death" to signify total loss of brain function or activity (the person is dead & recovery is not possible). ...Read more
