Vascular Dementia can occur after a person has a stroke due to major blood vessels being blocked. iii. It also causes your thinking ability to decline by not allowing vital oxygen and nutrients to your brain cells. iv. In an article by Alzheimer’s Association it mentions that many experts who study this type like to call it “Vascular Cognitive Impairment” because it better explains the idea that your vascular thinking skills can change and it can either be small or serve.
Many concerns have centered in on the possible links between repeated concussions and chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CPE. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy is a serious, degenerative brain disease that affects a person’s ability to think. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy involves the progressive brain damage, particularly in the frontal region of the brain, which controls many functions including people’s judgement, emotion, impulsive control, social behavior and their memory. A signature feature of the disease is abnormal deposits of a protein called tau that accumulates around small blood vessels in brain crevices. Researchers believe that multiple blows to the head may dislodge the tau protein from the cell structure and cause it to form in clumps inside nerve cells.
Patients with brain injuries may require rehabilitation after being stabilized and out of immediate danger. The level and scope of rehabilitation depend on the severity of the deficits that a person has. For example, some people may have deficits in their physical majority and will have to regain strength and balance. In other cases, the rehabilitation may be needed to address cognitive deficits. Often a team of medical professionals specializing in different disciplines to provide a comprehensive treatment plan for the patient is needed.
The progressive changes noted in both static and dynamic balance were reliable with some reports of increased balance by exercise intervention in weaker training in a frail or geriatric population with disability. (Buchner DM, 1997; Campbell AJ, 1997). Duncan et.al. (1998) found no significant change in balance with home bound rehabilitation program in post stroke population. He also reported the possibility of significant gain in a static and dynamic component with therapist monitored high-intensity exercise program.
An ischemic stroke is caused by a blood clot blocking an artery. What are the causes? A lacunar stroke is caused by a blood clot blocking blood flow in an artery in the brain. The blockage is the result of the arteries becoming more narrow due to a buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries (atherosclerosis). What increases the risk?
Today, I will share to you the Ischemia Heart Disease. The Ischemia Heart Disease has been one of the most deadliest disease known for almost 2 decades (20 years). This disease can kill anyone in just one heart stroke. The main idea of this disease is that you get a heart attack due to the fact when plenty of your veins start to fill up of plaque and blood or as known as a blood clot, you get a heart attack. The blood flow and oxygen flow is incorrect or in simple words, the current of blood stops flowing through you body correctly.
I. INTRODUCTION This Brain hemorrhage is a type of stroke, which occurs due to artery bursting in the brain, causing bleeding in the surrounded tissues. The symptoms of brain hemorrhage are a sudden severe headache, Weakness in an arm or leg, nausea or vomiting, changes in vision, difficulty in speaking or understanding speech, difficulty in
In United States, intestinal ischemia accounts for 0.1% of all hospital admissions, the incidence of this condition has increased over the last few decades ( from 1 in 1000 to 1 in 200 hospitalization for abdominal pain). In most cases, intestinal ischemia requires emergency treatment to avoid tissue necrosis, infectious outcomes, septic shock or lethal multiple organ failure . Intestinal ischemia has been defined as impairment of the intestinal blood supply from celiac axis, superior mesenteric artery and inferior mesenteric artery, this results in tissue injury and a low-flow state with poor intestinal arterial perfusion [ 7]. Procalcitonin (PCT) is a 116-amino-acid (AA) precursor of calcitonin , that was first
The damage occurs in different parts of the brain due to which the motor control is affected extensively. Therefore, motor skill development analysis is used at different intervals so that key developmental milestones are determined. Delay in motor development is the key indicator in the case of cerebral palsy. The paediatrician analyses posture, muscle tone, reflex irregularly, balance, movement control, and coordination and others (Krägeloh-Mann & Cans, 2009). Cerebral palsy is regarded as the lifetime disease that cannot be cured
Title “CORRELATION BETWEEN SERUM CALCIUM LEVELS AND SEVERITY OF INFARCT IN PATIENTS PRESENTED WITH ACUTE ISCHEMIC STROKE” Authors Dr. Lal Badshah, Dr. Asim Khan, Dr. Shahida Malik. Dr. Lal Badshah (Assistant Professor of Medicine Islam Medical College Sialkot) Dr. Asim Khan (Registrar East medical ward mayo hospital lahore ) Dr. Shahida Malik (Assistant Professor of Obs & Gyane Islam Medical College Sialkot) Correspondence Name: Dr. Lal Badshah Designation: Assistant Professor of Medicine Email: email@example.com Phone: 0333-9848185 ABSTRACT Background Stroke or cerebrovascular accident (CVA) is the prompt loss of brain function due to disturbance in blood supply. Stroke cuts off the supply of oxygen and glucose which powers the ion pumps maintaining these gradients.Calcium plays an important role in intracellular and extracellular metabolism.
