21 Possible Causes for Lacunar Infarction, Narrow Hands, Stupor

  • Stroke

    […] cerebral circulation stroke Pure motor lacunar infarction Pure sensorimotor lacunar infarction Pure sensory lacunar infarction R.I.N.D. syndrome Reversible ischemic neurologic[] She improved significantly, and eight hours after tPA therapy, had only moderate expressive speech difficulties and mild hemiparesis on the right (dominant hand) side.[] […] or veering Coordination problems in the arms and hands Slurred speech or inability to speak Sudden deviation of the eyes toward one direction Seizures Irregular breathing Stupor[]

  • Arteriosclerosis

    It is the underlying mechanism of small vessel ischemic changes and lacunar infarcts in the brain of hypertensive patients and in most renovascular disease.[] If they show white spots, it could indicate that your leg arteries are narrowed down and not enough blood can reach your feet.[] Inflammation-mediated damage in progressing lacunar infarctions: a potential therapeutic target. Stroke 33 : 982–987, 2002 .[]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    […] summarized as follows: intensive and progressive cephalea, the main symptom; seizures (39.3%); paresis (37.2%); papilledema (28.3%); altered mental state (22%), aphasia (19.1%), stupor[] […] cerebral arteries (lacunar infarction); and proximal arterial stenosis with hypotension that decreases cerebral blood flow in arterial watershed zones (hemodynamic stroke)[] In the narrow sense of the term, CT occurs if a thrombus develops within a cerebral vessel (intrinsic cerebral thrombosis, ICT).[]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    In the worst case, the drowsiness gives way to stupor as signs of upper brainstem compression appear.[] infarcts (process: fibrinoid necrosis or lipohyalinosis) 14.[] In carotid ultrasounds, high-frequency sound waves are directed from a hand-held transducer probe to the target area.[]

  • Lactic Acidosis

    As the acid level goes up these symptoms progress to stupor, unconsciousness, coma, and death.[] Lacunar infarcts existed in 23 of 40 patients.[] Poor circulation to hands and feet * Part 2: Chest, Lungs, Heart: 11. Any kind of asthma * 12. Narrowing or tightening feeling in the chest of chest pain * 13.[]

  • Cerebrovascular Disorder

    ., tentorial and foramen magnum herniation; see Chapter 17 on stupor and coma).[] […] cerebral circulation stroke Pure motor lacunar infarction Pure sensorimotor lacunar infarction Pure sensory lacunar infarction R.I.N.D. syndrome Reversible ischemic neurologic[] […] to think about narrowing or occlusion of the proximal artery insufficiency of collateral blood supply, leading to transient focal ischemia ("low bloodflow") of the cortex[]

  • Carotid Stenosis

    Personality changes or mood and emotion changes Urinary incontinence (lack of control over bladder) Lack of control over the bowels Consciousness changes including sleepiness, stupor[] Lacunar infarctions and carotid artery disease. Lancet 1991 ; 337 : 1361 –2. 42 Fisher CM. Lacunar infarcts: a review.[] The narrowing of the arterial wall's diameter renders the blood flow to the brain inadequate; thus, a stroke may occur.[]

  • Nothnagel's Syndrome

    Plum, F; Posner, JB (1966), The diagnosis of stupor and coma, Philadelphia, PA, USA: FA Davis, 197 pp. a b Fager, Susan; Beukelman, Dave; Karantounis, Renee; Jakobs, Tom ([] Unilateral internuclear ophthalmoplegia can result from a lacunar infarct — but always remember the possibility of multiple sclerosis.[] Hypotensive retinopathy may also include retinal arteriole narrowing, macular edema, and neovascularization in the posterior pole.[]

  • Ischemic Peripheral Neuropathy

    Stroke Scale Calculator can be found on NIH Stroke Scale Level of Consciousness 0: Alert 1: Drowsy 2: Stuporous 3: Comatose Level of Consciousness Questions: Age[] Lacunar infarcts can produce a large variety of clinical deficits depending on their location within the brainstem and have been characterized by more than 70 different clinical[] […] strokes are described by the 5 most common lacunar syndromes: pure motor hemiparesis, sensorimotor stroke, ataxic hemiparesis, pure sensory stroke, and dysarthria-clumsy hand[]

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    While both are likely to result in alteration in mental status (including stupor, confusion, and coma), a subdural hematoma may have more focal findings, while shunt infection[] Periventricular signal changes may be associated with subcortical vascular encephalopathy (also with lacunar infarctions) in NPH, but this does not predict poor surgical outcome[] infarctions in NPH did not predict a poor outcome from shunt surgery [ 11 ].[]
