1,596 Possible Causes for Cerebral Edema

  • Hyponatremia

    She never regained consciousness and died of severe cerebral edema less than 24 hours later.[] When extracellular osmolality decreases, water influx occurs in the brain resulting in cerebral edema.[] KEYWORDS: arginine vasopressin; cerebral edema; exercise-associated hyponatremia; hypertonic saline; syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretion; water-electrolyte imbalance[]

  • Stroke

    These patients are at high risk for progressive neurologic deterioration and death due to malignant cerebral edema, and they are best cared for in the intensive care unit[] In poor flow states―which occur with thrombotic and embolic ischemic stroke, as well as with increased ICP due to cerebral edema―the cerebral vasculature loses vasoregulatory[] Managing patients with malignant cerebral infarction remains one of the foremost challenges in medicine.[]

  • Dialysis Disequilibrium Syndrome

    We hypothesize that the patient suffered acute cerebral edema due to dialysis disequilibrium syndrome.[] DDS is a central nervous disorder characterized by a wide variety of neurological symptoms that range from nausea and vomiting to even death due to 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[]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    The neurologic morbidities, including seizure activity, motor/sensory deficit, and coma, can be seen secondary to cerebral edema, hemorrhage, or ischemia.[] BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Mannitol is often used to reduce cerebral edema in acute intracerebral hemorrhage but without strong supporting evidence of benefit.[] Minimally invasive aspiration can reduce the injury to BBB and cerebral edema.[]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    The levels of IL-1β, IL-18 and TNF-α in the CSF were especially higher in the group of aSAH patients with cerebral edema, cerebral vasospasm, and a high grade on Hunt-Hess[] It is usually due to cerebral edema .[] The origin of pseudo-SAH terminology appears mostly tied to comatose cardiac arrest patients with diffuse dark brain Hounsfield units and cerebral edema, and is a potential[]

  • Acute Liver Failure

    Nevertheless, cerebral edema and ensuing brain herniation remains one of the top causes of demise in acute liver failure.[] Cerebral edema Brain involvement includes cerebral edema, which is the predominant cause of morbidity and fatality in acute liver failure.[] KEYWORDS: Acute liver failure; Cerebral edema; Encephalopathy; Extracorporeal liver support system; Liver dialysis; Liver transplantation; N-acetylcysteine[]

  • Brain Contusion

    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.[] edema).[]

  • Hypertensive Encephalopathy

    […] the vertebrobasilar vasculature may predispose the parietal occipital region to the development of cerebral edema in hypertensive encephalopathy. 1996 S.[] There was complete resolution of cerebral edema in all patients and mild interval prominence of the cerebral sulci, which can indicate cerebral volume loss, in three out of[] Ultimately, this leads to cerebral ischemia and cellular edema.[]

  • Cerebral Salt-Wasting Syndrome

    If not treated properly, patients develop hypoosmotic conditions that can lead to cerebral edema, increased intracranial pressure, and collapsed circulation.[] If not appropriately treated, the postoperative hyponatremia can cause several types of CNS and circulatory disorders such as cerebral edema, increased intracranial pressure[] Values less than 135 mEq/L lead to profound neurological symptomatology due to cerebral edema, including a diminished level of consciousness and lethargy, cephalalgia, epileptic[]

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    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.[] edema Nodal blocking agents seem to have a mixed picture despite CO poisoning being proarrhythmic ( 113, 115, 118 ).[]
