What are Vegas nerve stimulator implants removal side effects effects ?

What are Vegas nerve stimulator implants removal side effects effects ?

Disagree with Rx: First, not clear to me if you possess a VNS device, but removal can increase sz frequency. Furthermore, you are taking too many seizure meds, as after the first two, the benefit of the third is NO MORE than 3-4% improvement at best and the 4th is clearly egregious. You are best served by either surgery or the VNS unit, and you need to see an epilepsy specialist to get some direction here. ...Read more

What are Vegas nerve stimulator implants removal side effects effects ?

Disagree with Rx: Why hasn't the stimulator been replaced, as the newer versions have better batteries and are far smaller? Usually cough occurs when VNS settings too aggressively set, not when removed. Removal may result in increased seizures, and maybe your cough is part of a partial seizure. Have you discussed this with your neurologist?? ...Read more

Severe tooth pain left side only, upper and lower. Reg xray, panoramic show nothing. Can an endodontist see anything different?

Severe tooth pain left side only, upper and lower. Reg xray, panoramic show nothing. Can an endodontist see anything different?

Perhaps: Being an endodontist, if i were presented with a patient with your symptoms, besides my regular testing, i would order a cone beam ct scan. This scan shows me a 3d view of the area, and often can reveal pathology not usually seen with the regular 2d xray radiographs. Also, the endodontist has experience in seeing patients with difficult diagnostic issues, so they may have seen similar patients. ...Read more

Are cephalogram xrays always necessary for orthodontic treatment or will panoramic xray suffice? What is radiation dosage of each type of xray?

Are cephalogram xrays always necessary for orthodontic treatment or will panoramic xray suffice? What is radiation dosage of each type of xray?

Cephalometric Xray: The standard of care for orthodontic treatment as defined by the ADA/AAO requires a cephalometric X-ray as part of the beginning orthodontic records. Without this Xray/tracing, it is impossible to properly determine the skeletal vs dental component of the malocclusion. Many of these xrays are digital, which means much less exposure than old traditional xrays with film. ...Read more

What are potential side effects of CT scan due to radiation exposure?

What are potential side effects of CT scan due to radiation exposure?

Depends: I depends on how old you are when you get the scan. The younger you are and the more scans you get the higher the risk. Some studies say there is significant risk for white blood cell cancers. A one off scan is unlikely to cause cancer in itself but it not entirely risk free. If there is a good reason to do the test it would have to be balance against the risk of the scan. ...Read more
