2,017 Possible Causes for Brain Edema

  • Stroke

    Brain edema is accompanied by an increase of intracranial pressure and thus, edema-mediated brain damage is not necessarily restricted to those brain regions originally affected[] This type of stroke requires decompressive craniectomy to avoid life-threatening brain edema and resulting elevation of intracranial pressure.[] Animal models demonstrate that persistence of the hematoma in brain tissue results in progressive brain edema, metabolic distress, and potentially other mechanisms, which[]

  • Hyponatremia

    Diagnosis Hyponatremia associated with noncardiogenic pulmonary edema and cerebral edema.[] edema results, so goal is rapid correction to reduce swelling. c) In chronic hyponatremia, brain adapts by decreasing the production of osmolytes, thus brain size remains[] When extracellular osmolality decreases, water influx occurs in the brain resulting in cerebral edema.[]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    […] barrier (BBB) damage, brain edema, prolonged extravasation, and hemorrhage.[] edema.[] Pathogenesis of brain edema and investigation into anti-edema drugs. Int J Mol Sci 2015; 16 (05) 9949-9975 58 Yamaguchi S, Kobayashi S, Yamashita K, Kitani M.[]

  • Dialysis Disequilibrium Syndrome

    In severe cases, patients can die from advanced cerebral edema.[] Cerebral edema was thus attributed to osmotic effects related to a high urea gradient between plasma and brain. [3] Diagnosis [ edit ] Clinical signs of cerebral edema, such[] It is known that these symptoms, known as dialysis disequilibrium are associated with cerebral edema.[]

  • Hypertensive Encephalopathy

    Hemodynamic mechanism for brain edema forrmation in patients with hypertensive encephalopathy is unclear.[] Brain stem and cerebellar edema in hypertensive encephalopathy usually occurs in association with these typical supratentorial changes and is usually asymptomatic.[] In patients with hypertensive encephalopathy, brain edema is frequently distributed in the parieto-occipital white matter.[]

  • Brain Contusion

    Studies show that brain swelling, after traumatic brain injury (TBI), is caused by brain edema rather than cerebral blood volume (CBV).[] The more severe brain contusions can lead to brain swelling or cerebral edema, which may result in further brain damage.[] Skull computed tomography ( Figs A to C ) showed frontotemporal contusion with mild cerebral edema.[]

  • Cerebral Edema

    Abstract The objective of this study was to assess reduction in cerebral edema following linear accelerator radiosurgery (LINAC) as first line therapy for brain metastasis[] Vasogenic edema is, by definition, edema created by a breakdown in the blood-brain-barrier with leakage of water and solutes into the interstitial spaces of the brain.[] What is cerebral edema? The medical term for swelling of the brain is cerebral edema.[]

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    First cranial tomography (CT) findings were unremarkable other than brain edema. She was admitted to an intensive care unit. No verbal communication was present.[] One child died of cerebral edema, one had permanent neurologic deficits, and 18 had no recognizable sequelae related to the episode.[] edema Convulsions/Seizures Coma Death Treatment of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning If you have a device on your truck that checks carbon monoxide levels, use it.[]

  • Sepsis-associated Encephalopathy

    Brain edema aggravated and lasted for a few months despite a variety of treatments.[] edema, multisystem trauma including cervical spine and traumatic brain injury, and prognosis.[] Avoid hemodialysis in patients with suspected intracranial hypertension as fluid shifts may worsen the cerebral edema.[]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Early signs of increased intracranial pressure from brain edema are reported promptly so that measures to reduce pressure can be taken as soon as possible.[] Presence of neurological signs indicates complications such as cerebral edema and hydrocephalus.[] CT is widely available and is useful for rapid assessment of hydrocephalus, mass lesions, hemorrhage, or acute brain edema before LP.[]
