Diagnosing and Treating Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension Chloes Story
It actually goes by a couple names. There's pseudotumor cerebri, which is which is the more common name in the public's eye and then there's intracranial hypertension. It's a syndrome involving the cerebral spinal fluid which is a fluid that bathes the brain. It helped cushion brain provide nutrients and things like that. It has and pressure that it exerts inside the skull and patients with this condition that pressure's actually elevated. The thoughts are is that there's an imbalance between the production and reabsorption of the spinal fluid which then results in increased pressure and all the symptoms that we see with that.
We see all age range of patients. When they're very young to through adolescence. Chloe was 14 years old when she was referred to us by her eye doctor who had noted the swelling in her eyes. I went to my eye doctor for Miley he really checkup and they asked to to take a picture the back of my eye and they looked at my optic nerves and saw that they were swollen. She did not have any symptoms at the time. We performed the lumbar puncture which noted the increased.
Intracranial pressure and thus completing the diagnosis. My eye doctor at Children's said that if we would leave it untreated that I could go blind. Most of our patients we're able to get away with medical management. We have medications that decrease the spinal fluid that you produce to help bring back in that balance. I take two pills in the morning two pills at night before I go to bed every day. Once the symptoms resolve then we will wean her off the medication and typically we follow patients for about two years.
I think we were very fortunate to catch it as early as we did. She may be one of those fortunate few that do not ever have symptoms other than just the swelling in the eye or it may be simply that we just caught it early enough that she hadn't had time to develop those symptoms yet. We can actually do surgery on the optic nerve to relieve the pressure on that through cutting essentially cutting holes in the covering of that optic nerve to relieve the pressure. Some patients also too, can benefit from.
Diversion of their spinal fluid so shunting similar to how we do hydrocephalus that our colleagues in neurosurgery perform.And then some patients when their weight is also a factor we refer them to our healthy weight and nutrition clinic. You see the ophthalmologist first. They go through the full exam and get a really good look in the back to the eyes at the nerve which is the thing most interested in. Then after that they come and see us in neurology where we put that piece of the puzzle together with how they're doing clinically in terms of symptoms.
Arteriovenous malformation AVM and Embolization Treatment, Animation.
An arteriovenous malformation or an AVM is an abnormal formation of blood vessels connecting arteries and veins, BYPASSING the capillary system. The blood vessels of an AVM are commonly dilated and weakened due to high blood pressure and an AMV may bleed. Bleeding from an AVM may cause damage to surrounding brain tissue and result in a hemorrhagic stroke. An AVM can develop anywhere in the body but occurs most often in the brain or spine. AVMs are mostly congenital but not hereditary. They are believed to form during embryonic or fetal development. AVM embolization is an endovascular treatment.
Aimed to block blood flow in to an AVM and therefore reduce the risks of AVM bleeding. In this procedure, a catheter is inserted through the femoral artery at the groin and threaded all the way to the brain AVM. The catheter is used to inject a special glue into the AVM. The glue hardens when it comes into contact with the blood and seals off the AVM from the blood flow. AVM blood vessels do not supply normal brain tissue and therefore their blockage will not have any consequences on the patient.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia BPH and Treatments, animation.
The prostate is a walnutsize exocrine gland of the male reproductive system. It is located just below the urinary bladder where it wraps around the first part of the male urethra. Prostate gland produces a milky fluid that is expelled into the urethra to mix with spermatozoa during ejaculation. The fluid serves as a lubricant and nutrition for the sperms. Benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, also called benign prostatic hypertrophy or enlarged prostate, is a condition in which the size of the prostate gland is increased. It is considered benign because it's not a cancer, and it does not increase the risk of cancer.
However, when it becomes sufficiently large, the prostate tissue may compress the urethra and block the urine flow causing a number of urination problems and urinary tract infection. BPH is very common in aging men about 50 of men have some degree of BPH by the age of 60, with half of them demonstrating clinically significant symptoms. BPH is a result of hormonal changes and is considered a normal part of male aging. In aging prostate tissue, the rate of cell proliferation induced by male hormones somehow exceeds the rate of programmed.
Cell death or apoptosis. This results in increased number of cells and enlargement of the prostate. There are two main classes of medication for BPH treatment alphablockers these drugs relax smooth muscle in the prostate and the bladder neck, thus relieving the blockage of urine flow. 5alpha reductase inhibitors these inhibit local production of Dihydrotestosterone or DHT the hormone that is responsible for prostate enlargement. For those who do not respond to medication, minimally invasive treatments are available. These nonsurgical therapies use heat to cause cell death or necrosis in prostate tissue. The heat is delivered in small amount and.
Why Do We Get Nosebleeds
This episode of DNews is brought to you by Norton Security. you might get a surprise one as a kid or an awful embarrassing ones as an adult. But what the heck causes nosebleeds Hey guys, Julia here for DNews 60 of the population will experience epistaxis EP EH STECK SIS or a nasal hemorrhage sometime in their life. They're embarrassing, messy, and fun fact in Japanese pop culture a sign of sexual arousal. So what happens when Mount Vesuvius erupts on your face Well , your nose is filled with.
Lots of blood vessels with only a thin membrane to protect them. Often this membrane gets torn or irritated. and boom, your face is dripping with blood. there's two kinds of nosebleeds, anterior and posterior. Anterior nosebleeds are in the part of your nose called Kiesselbach's triangle and are triggered by an irritation to the lower nasal septum, the thin membrane that separates your nostrils. Kids most often get this kind. I think they spend too much time digging for gold. More common in adults, posterior nosebleeds originate further back and higher up in the.
Nose, to where arteries are. Sometimes they can be severe enough to warrant medical attention. So how do you get them Well the nose is in a vulnerable place, so a bump or a punch might do some damage. Other than that common irritants include cold, high altitude, dry air. Anything that dries out your nose leaves the lower nasal septum vulnerable. A little scratch from a fingernail can start the blood gushing. Although. spontaneous nosebleeds might be a sign of hypertension or infection disease, or even more rarely Vitamin C deficiency,.
Anemia, or heart failure. Those are common causes, what about more strange ones you ask Recently it was reported that A scottish backpacker who had just come back from South Asia started to have frequent nosebleeds. After a few weeks, she went to see a doctor, who thought it wasn't serious and told her just to go home. Then one night, she felt the blood clot move. Upon closer inspection she saw something with ridges. A leech had lived in her nose for FOUR WEEKS. Another nasty nosebleed comes out of Saudi Arabia. A 22 year old man reportedly kept.
Getting nosebleeds on and off for about three years. When he finally went to the doctor, they discovered a tooth growing in his nasal cavity! So how do you stop a nosebleed Dr. Mary Pickett, an instructor in medicine at Harvard Medical School says a pinch will do the trick and you should treat all nosebleeds like an anterior one. Pinch your nose halfway between the tip of the nose and the bridge. Lean forward so the blood doesn't drip down your throat. Hold tight for five minutes. If that doesn't.
Do the trick, repeat. On rare occasions you might need to go to the hospital. More complicated methods include cauterizing the blood vessel using silver nitrate. Researchers from Detroit Medical Center won an ig nobel prize in 2014 for using an old school approach. The award celebrates silly and surprising but practical research. The researchers couldn't stop a young girl's nose bleed with traditional methods so they tried salt pork. They say that there are some clotting factors in the pork. and the high level of salt will pull in a lot of fluid from the nose. Unfortunately this.
What are Fibroids Causes, symptoms and treatment of fibroids
Welcome back lovely ladies today we are going to figure out fibroids. figure out fibroids figure out fibroids It's like a tongue twister! say that three times fast. anyway, fibroids are something that you may never have to face because it generally tends to affect women age 30 or more however it is interesting to note that 25 percent women will probably suffer from fibroids at one point in their life but I'll never have symptoms and they'll never need treatment so what the heck are fibroids Fibroids are noncancerous growths.

So, what causes fibroids unknown. I know, sorry to disappoint you. the thing is is that the growth depends on the estrogen levels in the body and as the woman continues to menstruate and the sizes can vary they can be so small that you need a microscope to look at them or they can be really big as big as the uterus. now if you do have symptoms,.
Some of them may include pelvic cramping when you're not on your period, lower abdomen pain, lower back pain, painful sex, and increased urine frequency. the doctor will do an ultrasound to check for all of this. Now some treatment options generally include getting on birth control pills or an IUD Intrauterine Device to help regulate the estrogen, and if it really really really comes down to it surgery is also an option. Again, all this varies on your diagnosis and the severity of your problems. Always remember to go to a doctor to get.
