vascular occlusion of mid-brain?

My brother has been discharged from hospital after recieving a CT scan of the brain & many tests done on his eyes! His blood pressure is also stayed between 160 - 190 for a long time. On his discharge letter it refers to a 'small vascular occlusion in the mid-brain' - can anyone shed any light on this for me???

I have checked up online - one site says that a 'vascular occlusion' is a treatment carried out to restrict blood flow to certain vessels, or direct it elsewhere or to stop blood flowing to tumors. Another site says that a 'vascular occlusion' is a blockage of the vessel which could be caused by a blood clot & could result in Deep Vein Thrombosis!

Anyone got any knowledge of this???

a very small blockage of one of the miniscle arteries in the middle of the brain. they would not discharge him if oit were dangerously large so obviously bllood is still able to get through the blood vessel. I'm assuming though that thye have given him medication for his blood pressure and suggested soem lifestyle changes e.g. cut out caffein, alcohol , nicotine and go n a low fat diet.  (+ info)

mesenteric vascular diesease?

What's the question?
The mesenteric arteries, in particular the Superior & Inferior Mesenteric Arteries and the Celiac artery can build up plaque, just like any other artery.

If significant, they can be treated with stents or open bypasses.  (+ info)

Cardiology: Celiac Artery Compression Syndrome, What do my Mesenteric Heart Vessel test results mean?

Can someone help interpret these test results: Measurements in mesenteric vessels are within normal limits. There is borderline elevation of velocity seen in the celiac trunk on the post prandial measurements with a peak systolic measurement of 202.5cm/sec and suggests possibility of significant stenosis greater than 60%.
What does this mean? Is it something that can be treated and if so, how? Symptoms for which he was referred for testing is upper abdominal pain, weight loss, and a sick feeling in the stomach. What may cause this problem? Thanks for your answers.

Mesenteric vessels are the three major arteries that supply blood to the stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. A normal reading is good signaling no narrowing/blockages.

Stenosis is a narrowing or blockage.

The celiac trunk is also an atery originating in the abdominal aorta. Boderline elevation means that your aterial pressure is slightly or near high.

So basically he is saying that your celiac artery is blocked greater than 60%.

A stenosis (blockage) greater than 60% depending on the status of other vessels that feed your intestines may or may not cause the symptoms your doctor described. This type of blockage causes discomfort after eating resulting from poor (mesenteric )circulation the discomfort can be so severe people stop eating.

You should first get a diagnosis to determine what condition you have and ask your doctor to speak english and not use any technical jargon.

Have you been diagnosised with Celiac Artery Compression Syndrome (CACS) and not Celiac artery stenosis (CAS) I ask because CACS is extremely rare and is best diagnosed after a CT angiograph. CAS which is more common is atherosclerotic in nature (a disease which affects arterial blood vessels). CACS on the other hand is intestenial agina you would be in pain and probably had a significant weight loss and the treatment for this is surgery.

Hope this explanation works. Good luck.  (+ info)

What happens if you go for an opperation to remove the appendix and... *Mesenteric Adinitis*?

... they find the appendix is perfectly healthy?
Will they still take it out or will they leave it there?

Also, if they find it is Mesenteric Adinitis, what happens then? And what actually is Mesenteric Adinitis?

Please help!!
I thought the appendix was useless? What is its job, just out of intrest?

Wow De Mac what a load. IT IS PART OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM:

"Lymphoid tissue begins to accumulate in the appendix shortly after birth and reaches a peak between the second and third decades of life, decreasing rapidly thereafter and practically disappearing after the age of 60. During the early years of development, however, the appendix has been shown to function as a lymphoid organ, assisting with the maturation of B lymphocytes (one variety of white blood cell) and in the production of the class of antibodies known as immunoglobulin A (IgA) antibodies. Researchers have also shown that the appendix is involved in the production of molecules that help to direct the movement of lymphocytes to various other locations in the body."  (+ info)

What are the dressings called that you use for topical medication occlusion?

I have a topical medication that's supposed to be occluded but I don't know what the dressing is called for that. Occlusion dressings?

And I don't know where to buy it. I'd like a cheap source since I have to use it every day.

Thank you!

Occlusive dressing. Go to a surgical supply store or large pharmacy. It will be a heavy almost plastic . On an ambulance we use plastic wrap used in any kitchen. You can do the same.  (+ info)

How can I find a dentist who will make my currently normal occlusion extremely bucked?

I've always loved severely bucked teeth and now am ready to become what I've loved in others. In addition to the bucked part, I'd love to have my anterior occlusion made into an open bite. Are dentists allowed to perform such changes if their patients agree and, in fact, actually prefer them?

If anyone is knowledgeable about this, any time and cost estimates, given initial healthy dental structures with the age being mid fifties?
Though using the money to help another is a good, viable suggestion, one shouldn't assume I've never devoted my time, as a volunteer, for many a just cause; I have.
Heck, lots of people spend tons of money on fancy cars, expensive clothes, outrageous vacations and more. Why should this request be considered any different? In many ways it's quite similar (money spent, someone earns it, the economy goes on, and on, etc.).

I can't say that I would expect a dentist to agree to this (sorry!) due to the likelihood that other issues like difficulty in eating, speaking or larger issues like possible tooth loss, pain and complications would increase the possibility of you (and them) getting into a legal situation. Like an orthopedic surgeon refusing to do an amputation on a person who like to be an amputee.

Mesenteric Adenitis How long should it last?

I went to the ER last month and I was diagnosed with Mesenteric Adenitis, they told me it would only last for 2 weeks. I am still having pain in my stomach. I don't have health insurance, I am only 22 years old, I was wondering could it really last for a full month? What should I do? I tried to health insurance, still waiting for the approval.

Here's a good website about mesenteric adenitis:
