Worst Intraventricular Hemorrhage Symptom
What conditions cause constant downbeat nystagmus? Brain herniation & tonsillar descent on brain & IAC MR dizzy headaches pressure induced symptoms
Disturbing signs...: What you are describing are symptoms and signs of increased intracranial pressure from brain tumor or intracranial hypotension from spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid leak or Chiari Malformation. In other words, could be a lot of different things. You need to see a Neurosurgeon as the findings on your MRI are serious and may need surgery. Go and get a good and thorough and consultation. ...Read more
Age 23. Coma patient. Diffused axonal injury. Intraventricular hemmorhage. Bleeding in frontal lobe. Chances of survival? Any possible impairment?
Not good : Sorry about this one, but there will be a suboptimal outcome at best. Survival may be issue, talk to your doctors, and perhaps an eeg can guide decisions, but hard to predict outcome of comas.

Increase in vertigo events & tremor post TIA (q? Sepsis complication) with brainstem symptoms. Awaiting MRI & Transoesophageal Echo. Potential DDx?
Embolism: It sounds like your doctors suspect endocarditis which may throw septic emboli into the brain which causes ischemia or infarction of brain tissue and depending on where the tissue damage is, you would develop symptoms similar to what you describe. Are you on broad spectrum iv abc? are you on anti-coagulants? why are you waiting for a brain MRI? that should be done urgently to eval brain insult. ...Read more
Size of stroke: The amount of swelling, or edema, around a stroke is related to the volume of tissue infarcted. For a small stroke, swelling shouldn't be a problem. For a major hemispheric stroke, swelling can be life threatening and even sometimes require brain surgery to relieve pressure caused by the swelling. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is multiple haemorrhagic contusions in right temporal lobe with subarachnoid haemorrhage? Is it dangerous?
An injured brain: Sounds like someone sustained significant traumatic injury to the brain. Brain tissue has sustained a contusion or a severe bruise bad enough to cause bleeding that has extended to the fluid spaces around the brain. This is more severe than a concussion. Some damage to the brain has occurred. The severity of the injury will be evaluated best after the acute injury has resolved. ...Read more
Increased pressure: When a subdural hemorrhage occurs, the blood flows and first puts pressure on the soft tissues of the brain until they are fully compressed. The blood pressure then fills the dura mater, the tough sac that surrounds the brain. We think it is actually this stretching that is causing the headache. The pressure on the brain tissues causes the damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
MRI brain find: presence of a persistent trigeminal artery and hypoplasia of the basilar artery? What is this I read its very rare & cause aneurysm?
Dodged a bullet: Persistent Trigeminal art. is associated with aneurysm in 14%, likely on a congenital basis. If one does not exist, it is unlikely to develop. http://thejns.org/doi/abs/10.3171/jns.1971.35.5.0601 Association does not prove causality, but we don't understand the embryology well enough to know the causes of aneurysms. ...Read more
