What are the symptoms of intraventricular hemorrhage?

Intracranial bleed: Typically a intraventricular hemorrhage in the brain can cause gradual neurological changes with an alteration in mental status (less responsive) due to mass effect, . Significant headache may be present. Focal neurological deficits would be less likely. ...Read more

Will an intraventricular hemorrhage be reabsorbed on it's own?

Will an intraventricular hemorrhage be reabsorbed on it's own?

Yes: Typically, a subarachnoid hemorrhage will circulate through the cerebrospinal fluid and gradually and steadily disappear on imaging studies, and eventually be undetectable in spinal fluid. However, a consequence of such blood degradation products might be low pressure hydrocephalus due to clustering and obstruction of outflow areas. Most pts recover, but a number may have this complication. ...Read more

What is the treatment for intraventricular hemorrhage?

Fluid drainage: Intraventricular hemorrhage can block the flow of spinal fluid in the brain causing severe pressure build up. We put a tube into the ventricle temporarily and drain out the spinal fluid until the brain pressure goes down to normal. Occasionally there is a need to remove the hemorrhage surgically. ...Read more

The thought of getting intraventricular hemorrhage scares me. What are risk factors for it?

Multiple factors: Risk factors include high blood pressure, especially poorly controlled high blood pressure, blood clotting disorders, taking medication that interferes with blood clotting, and structural problems like avm, aneurism, contusion due to injury and less commonly tumor and infection. ...Read more

How do I explain to my daughter what it means to have intraventricular hemorrhage?

Bleed into the brain: Ventricles are a=naturally occurring and necessary spaces within the brain substance which ordinarily are filled with spinal fluid. Bleeding within ventricles is always serious but can come a variety of causes such as prematurity, trauma, blood vessel abnormalities. Surgery may be necessary to relieve pressure build up due to the volume of blood or hydrocephalus (water on the brain). ...Read more

Is there a better way to diagnose intraventricular hemorrhage aside from a lumbar puncture?

What does " he did have a grade 1 intraventricular hemorrhage."mean?

What does " he did have a grade 1 intraventricular hemorrhage."mean?

IVH/PVH: Intraventricular/periventricular hemorrhage (ivh/pvh) is graded from grade i to iv. Grade i, is where is a tiny hemorrhage underneath the lining of the cavity in the brain called lateral ventricle. Most studies have shown that (provided there are no other insults to the brain) and not associated with significant neurological dificits. ...Read more

What is the likelihood of recovery from a server intraventricular hemorrhage?

Unfortunately,: Generically, the mortality rate, within one year, from an intracerebral hemorrhage is 60%, year in and year out. When the blood enters the ventricle, there appears to be even a grimmer outcome. If survival does ensue, there is a risk of communicating hydrocephalus. Although poor prognosis here, would have family conference with your doctors and understand what they think. ...Read more
