Show results in: Română

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    Headaches are a typical presenting manifestation of CVT, while focal neurological deficits, seizures , and increased intracranial pressure may develop as the disease progresses[amboss.com] Hemiplegia then cerebral thrombosis I have just received a death certificate which gives the cause of death as: 1(a) Hemiplegia (which she had had for 15 days) 1(b) cerebral[british-genealogy.com] This results in artery occlusion, ischemia and stroke.[symptoma.com]

  • Stroke

    Awakening with or experiencing the abrupt onset of focal neurologic deficits is the hallmark of ischemic stroke diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Specifically, this exploratory study investigates changes in gait pattern among stroke patients with hemiparesis or hemiplegia during gait recovery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] How are strokes diagnosed?[medlineplus.gov]

  • Cerebral Embolism

    All were extensively investigated and no other causes for stroke were found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient came to the emergency department due to left-hemisphere focal neurological deficits with unknown time of onset. He was last seen to be asymptomatic at 9.30.[elsevier.es] About 3 months later, however, she developed left hemiplegia, and head magnetic resonance imaging revealed multiple tumorous lesions affecting the previously detected infracted[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    Six percent of patients presented with radiculating pain without any focal neurological deficits.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In this case, we present a patient who presented to the pediatric emergency department with new-onset seizure and hemiplegia 2 days after a roller-coaster ride.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here, we present the case of a 64 year-old male whose prostate carcinoma's metastasis mimicked a subdural hematoma, and he suffered a middle cerebral artery stroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Abscess

    CONTENT: The triad of headache, fever and focal neurological deficit is complete in 20% of patients on admission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The postoperative course was uneventful, but a slight left hemiplegia remained at discharge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Early mortality following stroke: a prospective review. Stroke. 1984 ; 15 :492-496.[stroke.ahajournals.org]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Neurological deficit and progressive, focal, or general headaches (in large tumours) are common. Tumours may also produce visible bony growth.[bestpractice.bmj.com] A brain tumor is the usual initial clinical and radiologic diagnostic impression in these patients, whose presenting symptoms include acute onset of hemiplegia, hemisensory[thefreelibrary.com] If you think it's a stroke, dial 999 immediately and ask for an ambulance.[nhs.uk]

  • Brain Laceration

    Any focal neurological deficit since the injury. Amnesia for events before or after the injury. Persistent headache since the injury.[patient.info] NIH: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke Brain injury - discharge Chronic subdural hematoma EEG Extradural hemorrhage Facts about Concussion and Brain[icdlist.com] Closed injuries are not open to the elements, and are more commonly the result of falls, blows, and medical catastrophes such as strokes.[spinalcord.com]

  • Todd Paralysis

    Todd paralysis , also known as Todd paresis or postictal paralysis , describes transient focal neurological deficits after an epileptic seizure.[radiopaedia.org] This is the first described ECG evidence of a dynamically displaced J-point in the setting of postictal hemiplegia. 2013 S.[karger.com] It is important to distinguish Todd's paralysis from a stroke, which it can resemble, because a stroke requires completely different treatment.[ninds.nih.gov]

  • Reversible Ischemic Neurologic Deficit

    Key Points A focal neurologic deficit that resolves within 1 h is almost always a transient ischemic attack. Test as for ischemic stroke.[merckmanuals.com] Thus, a great variety of manifestations have been observed in different cases, including transient hemiplegia, hemianopsia, monoplegia, aphasia, paresthesia, localized convulsive[annals.org] Thoroughly updated to reflect the best current practices in stroke medicine, Handbook of Stroke, Second Edition is a user-friendly one-stop guide to the clinical management[books.google.com]

  • Epidural Hematoma

    Epidural hematomas often result in acute focal neurological deficits necessitating emergent neurosurgical intervention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] microangiopathic changes Arterial hypertension and increasing age are the most important risk factors Clinical features Lucid interval , then loss of consciousness Headache Hemiplegia[amboss.com] A 71-year-old male presented with sudden neck pain followed by left-sided hemiparesis, and was believed to have had a stroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
