18 Possible Causes for Generalized Slow Activities in Bifrontal Distribution, Slowing - Theta Waves Frontal Left, Slowing - Theta Waves Unilaterally on the Right

  • Brain Concussion

    A brain concussion is a still incompletely defined syndrome of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that causes a spectrum of symptoms without evident structural damage to the brain. A headache, cognitive deficits, emotional instability, sleep disturbances, and an overall change in mental state after trauma are highly[…][symptoma.com]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Objectives: This critical literature review examines historical and current investigations on the efficacy and mechanisms of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Potential safety risks and oxygen toxicity, as well as HBO's future potential, are also discussed. Methods: Directed literature[…][dx.doi.org]

  • Stroke

    Mechanical thrombectomy is revolutionizing treatment of acute stroke due to large vessel occlusion (LVO). Unfortunately, use of the modified Thrombolysis in Cerebral Infarction score (mTICI) to characterize recanalization of the cerebral vasculature does not address microvascular perfusion of the distal parenchyma,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Migraine

    Of the nearly 32 million Americans with migraine, 24 million are women. It is a disorder affecting women throughout their lifetimes, from childhood and puberty through the postmenopausal years. In childhood, before puberty girls are afflicted with migraine at approximately the same rate as boys, but after puberty,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsy

    Abstract Many episodic phenomena involving motor, sensory, autonomic, and behavioral functions may imitate epilepsy. The aim of this article is to focus on the various manifestations and the diagnostic and therapeutic challenges of the most common of these disorders, as well as their relationship to emotional[…][oadoi.org]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    Intracerebral hemorrhage is a rare event during pregnancy that can result in serious morbidity and mortality for the mother and infant. In this article, we describe a case involving a multiparous woman at 34 weeks gestation who presented with a 5-cm intracerebral bleed. Within 2 hours of presenting, she underwent[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Astrocytoma

    A 41-year-old man presented to us with left arm and leg weakness and mild word finding difficulties. His preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated abnormal T1 and T2 signal changes in the right temporal lobe and basal ganglia, indicative of possible glioma. An awake craniotomy for right temporal[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • CNS Metastasis

    Abstract It is estimated that 10% to 30% of patients with solid tumors are diagnosed with central nervous system (CNS) metastasis. Common primary sites include lung, breast, melanoma, kidney, and colorectal. Brain metastases are increasing, due to the aging population, detection of subclinical disease, and control of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    […] noun mass noun Medicine Inflammation of the membranes of the brain and the adjoining cerebral tissue. ‘Disease also includes endocarditis, keratitis, osteomyelitis, peritonitis, and meningoencephalitis.’ ‘An infant with botulism is often diagnosed with sepsis or meningoencephalitis because of symptoms of lethargy and[…][en.oxforddictionaries.com]

  • Meningioma

    We report a novel case of a World Health Organization grade 3 anaplastic meningioma arising from the olfactory groove in an 83-year-old woman. Molecular and methylation profiling confirm this lesion to be an NF2 subtype, methylation class intermediate type B meningioma. As most meningiomas in this location are[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
