I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what dose she means?

A problem: The heart is like a room with sides. These have anatomical names: anterior posterior septal the anterior-septal is at a junction. Ischemia is a sign of reduced blood flow with exercise (induced) or a chemical. It may require medication and even surgery to eliminate.

Transient Ischemic Attack (Definition)

Tia (transitory ischemic attack) happens when blood supply to a certain area of the brain gets cut off temporarily. This causes a neurologic deficit - weakness, numbness, visual deficit or difficulty with speech. While TIA usually resolves, it indicates that there is a problem with your heart or blood vessels that can cause ...Read more

What is unspecified transient cerebral ischemia?

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.

What is transient cerebral ischemia?

What is transient cerebral ischemia?

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.

Would plavix (clopidogrel) be given for transient cerebral ischemia?

Can be: Antiplatelet therapy (which Plavix (clopidogrel) is) is part of the treatments for tia's. Talk to your dr. If your having tia's or ministrokes.

Are migraines associated with global cerebral ischemia?

Are migraines associated with global cerebral ischemia?

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).

What is cerebral ischemia? Prevention?

Decreased blood flow: The classic is transient ischemic attack (tia), brief decreased blood flow to a small area of brain which can be the first sign of stroke risk. Blood flow issues may play a minor role in migraine, and low blood pressure may diffusely drop cerebral blood flow. Treat the many risks, diabetes, hypertension, high blood fats, hyperhomocysteinemia, carotid stenosis. Anti-platelet drugs protect.

Is cyclic amp harmful or benefecial in cerebral ischemia?

Is cyclic amp harmful or benefecial in cerebral ischemia?

No role: I am not aware of any role for cyclic amp in the treatment of any brain disorder, but of course, it is important in cellular metabolism.

What kind of treatment is available for cerebral ischemia?

What kind of treatment is available for cerebral ischemia?

Prevention: After a TIA or even stroke, the next greatest risk, over next year is another stroke. The protocol often used includes aggenox and lipitor (atorvastatin). Need to make sure however, that you do not have carotid stenosis, and that hypertension, diabetes, high lipids, high homocysteine, all well controlled. Also, may sure that heart is not a primary source for a secondary stroke. Tpa deals with acute ischemia.

What kinds of treatment are available for cerebral ischemia?

Multiple: Main treatment is modifying risk factors htn, lipids, smoking, diabetes, inactive lifestyle, antiplatelet therapy, etc. For acute stroke IV tpa (alteplase) or ia therapy with multiple devices.

What is inferior cerebral ischemia can it be cured?

What is inferior cerebral ischemia can it be cured?

Poor blood flow: Inadequate blood flow to lower part of brain. It can improve with controlling BP & cholesterol, medications such as Aspirin and plavix, (clopidogrel) smoking cessation, heart healthy diet and exercise. Clot buster medication may be used within 90 minutes of an acute stroke and rarely angioplasty.

Are people with acutely recovered cerebral ischemia more 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?

Is cerebral ischemia reversible?

Yes: Transient ischemic attack is cerebral ischemia that results in transient neurologic dysfunction without acute infarction. Symptoms last for minutes to 24 hr and is transient and therefore reversible.

What is the significance of cerebral ischemia?

What is the significance of cerebral ischemia?

Stroke: It means that the brain is not getting a normal blood supply. Depending on the cause and on the severity, that could lead to symptoms temporarily or to permanent damage and a stroke.

Do I need to look at how long the symptoms of neurological deficit lasted in cerebral ischemia to know whether this is a TIA or a ischemic stroke?

Do I need to look at how long the symptoms of neurological deficit lasted in cerebral ischemia to know whether this is a TIA or a ischemic stroke?

Durations: A typical transient ischemic attack lasts about 20-30 minutes in general, but some might be a bit longer. Yet, if the symptoms persist over 24 hrs, almost certainly a stroke and may be visualized on an MRI. Generically, both should be treated in a preventative fashion to curtail recurrence.

I have a history of traumatic brain injury and am experiencing dizziness when laying down. Is this a transient ischemic attack? Could this be a tia?

I have a history of traumatic brain injury and am experiencing dizziness when laying down. Is this a transient ischemic attack? Could this be a tia?

Unlikely: If it only happens with laying down, it is less likely to be a tia. That being said, if the dizzines feels like spinning and is associated with weakness, numbness, difficulty speaking or seeing, you should talk to your doctor, this could be a tia.

Had a brain MRI and it states the findings are associated with mild traumatic brain injury (i was I an accident in dec 2011) states also the white matter found which is bilateral is no evidence for acute ischemia or cerebral parenchymal bleed. This was g

The: The good news is that there was no bleeding found in your brain or areas that are damaged due to lack of oxygen. Mild traumatic brain injury is a fancy way to say concussion. A concussion is defined as the result of the forceful motion of the head or impact causing a brief change in mental status or loss of consciousness for less than 30 minutes. Common symptoms include: fatigue headaches visual disturbances memory loss poor attention/concentration sleep disturbances dizziness irritability emotional disturbances depression seizures an important thing to note, is that these symptoms may not be present or noticed at the time of injury. It could take days or even weeks before any symptoms appear, and usually go unnoticed. There is nothing to worry about, you will be just fine. Take care.
