Recovered Cerebral Ischemia Unstable
Depends: Well unstable compared to whom. If you have recovered, we ordinarily would say you are stable but anytime a person has had ischemia, they are more likely to get a recurrence than a well person. And what is the ischemia secondary to would be an important question. Has the cause underlying the ischemia been corrected? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Do patients with untreated stable angina develop unstable angina leading to myocardial infarction?
“stress-induced ischemia of anteroseptal wall apex, basal inferoseptal wall, ischemic cardiomyopathy w/severe L ventricular systolic dysf, ref 30%.
Not good: You need a close follow up with a cardiologist for the rest of your life, if you smoke, try to quit ASAP ...Read more
See below: Am not familiar with "unspecified", but transient cerebral ischemia means diminished blood flow to a part of the brain causing clinical symptoms. Since this can be the first sign of an impending stroke, this needs to be fully evaluated and medication started for prevention. See a neurologist and get this fully addressed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You mean a TIA: Transient ischemic attack (TIA) is often called a "mini-stroke, " and is considered a harbinger for a full-blown stroke. It can occur as a result of a narrowing in the carotid arteries. Unlike a stroke, TIA symptoms last anywhere from 15 minutes to 24 hours. Typically can present with blindness to one eye, paralysis, or slurred speech. You should see a vascular surgeon immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Reversible severe myocardial ischemia 9%,ef 65 % mild infero lateral wall hypokinesia (m,55yr,80kg), what does this mean?
Findings: The first thing it means is that the patient and his doctor need to have a discussion of his status and what further steps if any are necessary. The studies reported above suggest that the patient has coronary artery disease and likely needs diet, exercise, not smoking, medications and perhaps other steps. ...Read more
Maybe. Probably.: Cerebral hypoperfusion literally means "not enough blood to the brain." so whether or not it is reversible depends on the cause for the decreased blood flow, and "induced" typically refers to intentionally causing this, such as for brain surgery or diagnostically. If this is the case, then yes, it's reversible. You should ask your doctor for more information rather than "medspeak.". ...Read more
Do patients with untreated stable angina end up developing unstable angina leading to myocardial infarction?
Very likely: The key is untreated. Medical treatment is effective. See your doctor and get treated. ...Read more
What does coronary occlusion acute, arterio-sclerotic cardio vascular disease and acute myocardial infarction mean?
MRI brain results, atrophy & ex vacuo dilated lateral ventricles. TBI 10yrs ago. Headache, nausea, blurry/double vision. Is it acquired Hydrocephalus?
Possibly: Ex vacuo is usually ventricular enlargement due to decreased cerebral tissue. Usually asymptomatic, your acquired hydrocephalus and its underlying mechanism of traumatic brain injury are likely related to your symptoms. Please speak with your health care provider about symptomatic treatment. ...Read more
See comments: Are you referring to radiology reading of an MRI of brain? In elderly, often thought that white matter lesions are associated with "microvascular angiopathy", sign of potential atherosclerosis. Maybe potential stroke risk, especially lacunar infarct, but not straightforwards. Your physician needs to assess stroke risk. Spots more likely from migraine or prior injury. ...Read more
Mom is 79 brain CT scan: moderate cerebral volume loss, mild widening of the cortical sulci, mild white matter microvasc. Ischemic disease serious?
Depends: Most likely these are aging changes that have occurred with time. ...Read more
So complicated: In short, no - migraines are not a hypoperfusive state. The old (not correct) understanding in fact was based on the observation that blood flow often increases with migraines. Like all things in the body, our understanding now is much more complicated. There's a complex interaction between the neurons (primary problem) and the vessels and surrounding structures (secondary). ...Read more
Define?accute anteroseptal myocardial infarction, atherosclerotic obstructive coronary artery disease, pulmonary edema, cardiogenic shock, hypokalemia
Here are some...: A 400-letter space is impossible to address many indicated subjects as questioned here. Why not type in the terms as keywords to search online? Thereby you surely gain a lot of pertinent information to feed your appetite of knowledge. Or you may just ask your doc who should be able to answer your questions to the point much easier. ...Read more
What does (1) 436 -Acute, but ill-defined, cerebrovascular disease and (2) 434.10 Cerebral embolism, without mention of cerebral inf codes mean?
8 months after TB meningitis, she still has issues with walking & cognition recent MRI say chronic lacunar infarct in right thalamus& left basal ganglia & dilated lateral ventricles, will she recover?
PT/Hearing check: Neurologic development in an infant is an ongoing process. After a serious infection, there may be long term effects but it is difficult to predict. It is important to have her hearing and eyes checked. Physical therapy can help her coordination. Ensuring that the infection is fully treated by following up and having all her vaccinations up to date will also help in her recovery.I hope this helps. ...Read more
