  • Reductions in the size of certain structures of the brain were found to be predictive for mild cognitive impairment and progression to dementia.[britannica.com]

Workup

  • Workup The proper diagnosis of IMN as a vascular lesion can avoid incorrect classification of the injury as a plexus or a root lesion from trauma, as well as avoid incorrect positioning during surgery.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • The diagnostic workup includes: Brain Imaging Head CT without contrast should be performed on all patients to exclude intracranial hemorrhage.[cdemcurriculum.com]
  • Complete electrodiagnostic studies [Nerve conduction studies (NCS) and needle electromyography (EMG)]: Perform if unclear after initial workup or presence of atypical symptoms: asymmetry, motor predominance, non-length dependence, prominent autonomic[clinicaladvisor.com]
Ischemic Changes
  • There have been reported cases of ischemic changes such as pallor, coolness, and even gangrene. The nerves in the distal limb are most affected. (See Etiology and Presentation.)[emedicine.medscape.com]

Treatment

  • Treatment of NA-AION The focus of treatment is on the underlying cardiovascular disease or other risk factors that help trigger and aggravate NA-AION. This can help control the condition and prevent additional loss of vision.[clevelandclinic.org]
  • The treatment of ischemic neuropathy varies depending on the associated disease. Prognosis can be poor in the case of amyloidosis and the primary vasculitides.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Diagnosis and treatment of the systemic conditions that cause AION may lessen the risk for vision loss.[lowvision.org]
  • The present study examined the potential efficacy of primary endovascular treatment for neuroischemic limbs.[omicsonline.org]
  • Methods: The authors evaluated 19 patients on entry to a gene therapy treatment trial for chronic and critical leg ischemia.[neurology.org]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis can be poor in the case of amyloidosis and the primary vasculitides. The literature is limited to cross-sectional case series and rare longitudinal studies likely related to the incidence of the diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prognosis Recent studies have suggested that 40% of patients may experience some degree of improvement in central vision or visual acuity weeks to months after the vision or visual field loss.[lowvision.org]
  • What Is the Prognosis for Neuropathy? The outlook for nerve damage depends upon its cause.[emedicinehealth.com]
  • Patients prognosis is related directly to early diagnosis and management. It seems that neurologic outcome and deficits are worse in systematic vasculitis neuropathy (14).[rcm.mums.ac.ir]

Etiology

  • (See Etiology and Presentation.)[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • They seem to present similar etiologic interactions within the wider group of functional diabetic microangiopathies [ 21 - 23 ].[omicsonline.org]
  • The etiology is considered to be an ischemic insult to the proximal limb which results in multiple axonal loss mononeuropathies. [2], [3] It is a devastating complication of AV access which can result in permanent disability even if intervened immediately[jpgmonline.com]

Pathophysiology

  • The neurophysiologic changes suggest that the underlying pathophysiology is a distal axonopathy affecting nerve fibers of all sizes.[neurology.org]
  • The pathophysiologic processes and theories underlying neuropathic pain are multiple.[practicalpainmanagement.com]
  • Lilly, Pathophysiology of Heart Disease, 2007.[pathophys.org]
  • I hope future research will help to delineate the pathophysiology of chronic ischaemic neuropathy.[webview.isho.jp]
  • Pathophysiology Although peripheral neuropathy has multiple etiologies, the nerve has a limited number of ways to respond to injury. 4 , 5 The damage can occur at the level of the axon (i.e., axonopathy).[aafp.org]

Prevention

  • Patients should be instructed to care meticulously for their insensate skin areas in order to prevent skin breakdown. (See Treatment.)[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • You can help prevent mini strokes and these symptoms by talking to your doctor about risk factors, specifically blood clots, and taking the appropriate preventative measures. Success! Your place in line is confirmed.[intermountainhealthcare.org]
  • Preventing Stroke An important part of the stroke evaluation is determining why the patient had a stroke in the first place. Once that is known, further treatment is directed at preventing more strokes in the future.[urmc.rochester.edu]
