Multiple micro bleed in ganglion thalamic region Leukoariaosis. A few small infarcts at bilateral ganglion capsular para ventricular region in Ct s?

Multiple micro bleed in ganglion thalamic region Leukoariaosis. A few small infarcts at bilateral ganglion capsular para ventricular region in Ct s?

And the question is?: Apologies that there's no question to answer, however, based on what you've written I will say that the term LEUKOARIOSIS is commonly known as WHITE MATTER DISEASE. Microbleeds refer to small amounts of blood in the regions you described likely referring to small vessel ischemic stroke. Recovery is variable depending on how widespread. GET MRI--More info?

Infarction (Definition)

When the blood supply of a tissue is compromised by whatever mechanism, the tissue will stop working and if blood flow is not restored, the tissue will eventually die ("infarct", both verb and noun). The clinical picture that runs with development of an infarct ("heart attack"; ...Read more

My father had recently diagnosed by chronic lacuna infarction in capsule ganglion region and bilateral Corona radiata. Please suggest me the treatment?

Explanation: Your father need to discuss his treatment with doctor, who know his clinical condition, age and other medical problems. It's important to know all picture. Explain this to your father. Sometimes parents do not want share their medical problems with children or other relatives. And doctor must follow their instructions. ...Read more

Friend has had cerebellar infarction, MRI is: pundate hyperintense area in bilateral inf. Cereblr region, hypointense on t1, hyperintense on t2, retriction on div I s/o aorta enfarct. Best treatment?

Friend has had cerebellar infarction, MRI is: pundate hyperintense area in bilateral inf. Cereblr region, hypointense on t1, hyperintense on t2, retriction on div I s/o aorta enfarct. Best treatment?

Time: This means the tissue has recently died in small areas (punctate) of the cerebellum. It is hard to tell (without examining, watching the changes, and knowing the history) to predict the outcome. ...Read more

What makes a lacunar infarct chronic?

All chronic: Infarct means death of tissue secondary to obstructed blood flow. Lacunar is a tiny area. Once event has occurred, the nerve cells do not grow back locally, but compensatory pathways arise. Key lesson, therapies can prevent stroke events. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

What is chronic infarct right thalamus?

Old stroke: Chronic implies longer than 3-6 months. Brain infarct is a stroke, due to blood vessel obstruction. Risk factors might include hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, and the presence of an old stroke predicts future stroke risk. So, likely best to start an anti-platelet drug. Discuss this with your doc. ...Read more

Can you tell me about spinal cord infarct?

Can you tell me about spinal cord infarct?

Spinal infarct: Spinal cord infarct is the same as a stroke- sudden decreased blood flow within part of the CNS (central nervous system). Compared to the brain, the spinal cord receives much less blood flow, but like the brain, it can suffer from a stroke. A spinal cord infarct is less common than a (cerebral) stroke. It also tends to affect the legs, as motor supply to the legs must pass through the spinal c. ...Read more

Can you have a splenic infarct and have no underlying condition?

Splenic infarct: It's possible but until a hematologist does the work up and gives you the clean bill of health that it was just a coincidence, I would not just right it off. Last time I looked, this is not a terribly common thing to happen unless there is trauma and the spleen is an incredibly important organ. ...Read more

What does infarct on spleen mean and how is it treated. What tests need to be performed.

Compromised tissue: An infarct is a decrease in blood supply to an area. In the spleen if the tissues don't get blood supply the tissue becomes necrotic and infarcts. Te good news is that if the majority of the splenic tissue is healthy. ...Read more

57 y/o female lacunar infarct 2009. Would that make my memory (short term) be affected? Its really getting bad. Thank u.

57 y/o female lacunar infarct 2009. Would that make my memory (short term) be affected? Its really getting bad. Thank u.

Highly unlikely: Embolic strokes are considered to be the typical forms of stroke or hemorrhagic type as well that place a person at highest risk for post stroke dementia like consequences. Small vessel ischemic type, since 2009?, and a single event? Nah.....but that doesn't mean you shouldn't get a workup of some sort because there may be an explanation. ...Read more

Ataxic lacunar infarct, what to do?

Ataxic lacunar infarct, what to do?

Control risk factors: Lacunar infarcts are a type of ischemic stroke that is often due to risk factors for stroke including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes as well as lifestyle changes such as stopping smoking, exercise, and a healthy diet. The ataxia refers to a specific type of lacunar infarct and the associated symptoms of incoordination. It is best to seek full evaluation by a stroke neurologist. ...Read more

What is multi-infarct dementia?

Many small strokes: Multiple small "lacunar infarcts" can add up and create a picture very similar to alzheimers, and result in significant cognitive problems. Need to treat the dementia with meds, but also prevent further strokes with meds. Complex, so need fairly thorough evaluation and treatments. ...Read more

How is multi-infarct dementia found?

Thorough Evaluation: Tests determine whether other medical problems could be causing dementia, such as anemia, brain tumor, chronic infection, drug and medication intoxication, severe depression, thyroid disease, vitamin deficiency. Neuropsychological testing is helpful to find out what parts of thinking have been affected, and to guide other tests. Tests also can include a head ct scan and MRI of the brain. ...Read more

Wwhat is peri -infarct ischemia?

Lack of blood flow.: "Ischemia" means a relative lack of blood flow (i.e., less blood flow than expected or less flow than noted on a prior scan).
Peri-infarct means around the area of cell death (infarction).
Upload the report & images on HealthTap Prime to discuss in more detail. But the basic gist is that around the area of death, there is an area of less blood flow than there should be. ...Read more

What is an old inferior infarct, old anterior infarct, and possible septal Q-waves?

What is an old inferior infarct, old anterior infarct, and possible septal Q-waves?

Infarcts: Infarcts are areas of heart muscle damage or scars. They can be deemed to be acute or old depending on associated EKG patterns. Q waves are often patterns of myocardial infarction. The above abnormalities are felt to be on the bottom and front of the left ventricle and possibly on the septum which is a wall between the left and right ventricles. This is a significant amount of heart muscle damage. ...Read more

Can a lacunar infarct be caused by an auto accident?

Yes: The sudden deceleration trauma may cause microscopic changes within the brain, possibly including a tiny amount of vascular damage which results in loss of blood flow to a small area, resulting in the loss of viability of that specific focus of tissue (infarct). However, this also may have happened independent of the mva. ...Read more
