Can diffuse haemangioma in skull bone cause Subdural Hematoma or cavenous sinus thrombosis so worried?

NO: Of course, if you have reasons for thrombosis, or bad head trauma, you, like others could have such issues, but so far, you provide no reason to worry. ...Read more

Seizure Disorder (Definition)

Seizure disorder also known as epilepsy, is a neurological condition in which the brain's abnormal electrical activity causes muscular convulsions and altered mental states. Epilepsy is diagnosed when an individual has ...Read more

Can subdural hematoma lead to brain dysfunction?

Can subdural hematoma lead to brain dysfunction?

Yes: The subdural hematoma if present for a long time and sufficiently large can compress the underlying brain leading to local ischemia and shift of the brain. This can lead to damage to the underlying structures. Even if it is evacuated, there can still be long-term sequelae--ie. Brain disabilities. ...Read more

Is parietal hematoma and subdural hematoma same?

Hematoma- blood coll: Hematoma is collection of blood somewhere in the body...anywhere in the body....it's called a hematoma. Parietal tells us the location (Parietal lobe of the brain) usually due to high blood pressure while Subdural hematoma means collection of blood below the level of the DURAL cover of the covering of the brain called the meninges...often times traumatic cause but also often can be spontaneous. ...Read more

What is left parietal hematoma? Is parietal hematoma and subdural hematoma same?

Different: A hematoma is like a bruise or collection of blood from a trauma. In parietal hematoma this is in the parietal lobe of the brain, so it is in the brain tissue itself. A subdural hematoma is just under the dura mater one of the coverings of the brain so it is up close to the skull. ...Read more

Could epidural hematoma lead to cerebral hypoxia?

Could epidural hematoma lead to cerebral hypoxia?

Yes: Imagine a pressure on one side of the brain from the skull, pushing that side of the brain compressing all the tissues including the blood vessels causing brain hypoxia on one side. It then pushes the whole brain and shifts to the brain against the unyielding skull to the other side, compressing the tissues there also (counter coup effect). That is epidural hematoma without surgical treatment. ...Read more

What is more severe, subdural or epidural hematoma?

What is more severe, subdural or epidural hematoma?

Depends: If you are referring to outcomes, subdural hematomas generally have a worse outcome. This may because these tend to be in older patients and are associated with a rotational component. The blood is also pushing directly on the brain. If you are referring to rapidity of deterioration although both can have a rapid decline, classically, the epidural is more rapid because it is an artery bleeding. ...Read more

Can you tell me classic causes of extradural, subdural, and subarachnoid haemorrhages?

Can you tell me classic causes of extradural, subdural, and subarachnoid haemorrhages?

Most commonly: Epidural and subdural often due to trauma, and less commonly blood clotting or coagulation issues. Subarachnoid bleed usually due to a congenital berry aneurysm, and less commonly arteriovenous malformation rupture. Many other less common causes for all the above. ...Read more

What's epidural hematoma -- blood clot on the brain?

What's epidural hematoma -- blood clot on the brain?

Epidural hematoma: Epidural hematomas also happen in the spine. Though most occur spontaneously they can occur after an epidural, spinal, or myelogram. This is usually due to the patient being on blood thinners or have conditions like vonwhilenbron's disease. It is a surgical emergency as paralysis will happen if the hematoma is not removed. ...Read more

My diagnoses have been: concussion (with brief loss of consciousness), post concussion syndrome, swelled dura mater. When will my injuries level off?

Up to 2 years : Traumatic brain injury (concussion falls into this category) are notoriously slow to heal taking months or even years to fully improve. In some cases the resultant symptoms can be permanent especially if the injuries happen repetitively (think football). ...Read more

Can dural puncture from spinal anesthetic for csection cause brain damage? Had the spinal headache for 2 weeks no blood patch. Symptoms were severe.

Can dural puncture from spinal anesthetic for csection cause brain damage? Had the spinal headache for 2 weeks no blood patch. Symptoms were severe.

Dural puncture: Dural puncture cannot cause any brain damage unless there is very high CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) pressure inside the skull (increased icp - intracranial pressure), in which case the skull contents can herniate outside the skull through the foramen magnum (through which the spinal cord exits). This would be an emergency and if you are writing this, you dont have it ! ...Read more

How can sinusitis, meningitis, intracranial bleeding, hypertension, and tumors in the brain cause headaches?

Common denominator: Except for sinusitis, they all cause traction on the leptomeninges which are the only structures in the brain which have feeling/sensation. Sinusitis causes headache by a different mechanism. ...Read more

What's a subdural hematoma?

What's a subdural hematoma?

Blood clot: A subdural hematoma is a blood clot that has formed on top of the brain and underneath the covering of the brain. It is usually due to a traumatic event or if the patient's blood is being thinned. It can be nonsurgical or surgical depending on how large it is and what the patient's neurological status is. ...Read more

help.

Cranial hemorrhage: The hemorrhage will usually resolve over 6-8 weeks. The need to watch for hydrocephalus or a build up of spinal fluid is indicated. Increasing headaches, confusion, nausea, vomiting, and double vision are common presenting symptoms. The early question to answer is why the hemorrhage occurred? Aneurysm, avm, infection, high blood pressure or trauma can cause the hemorrhage and needs to diagnosed. ...Read more

Cause of death: subdural haematoma, fall exasperated by anticoagulants. Father fell - brain bleeding caused brain squashing = death Explain please?

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 more
