What can cause a blockage in the cerebral artery in the brain?

My ex just got his test results back and he has a 55% blockage in the cerebral artery. What will happen now? Meds or surgery?

Cholesterol builds up over time clogs up the arteries. I would imagine they will start with drugs, last resort surgery.  (+ info)

How long does it typically take for a cerebral aneurysm to rupture?

I recently had a cerebral aneurysm rupture and bleed out in my brain. After a very long surgery I am now recovering. I was curious how long it was in my brain before it ruptured?

It is true, there is no way to know. Although more than likely, it had been there a while. Aneurysms, unless caused by trauma, tend to grow fairly slowly. Some aneurysm locations in the brain can be faster than others due to differences in blood flow.  (+ info)

How do you deal with your limitations when you have Cerebral Palsy?

I have sometimes felt sad because I have Cerebral Palsy. Any tips on feeling better about it. And what about the anger that comes up too?

i'm an 18 yr old college student, i use a walker and have some difficulty with my left. honestly i doubt i could tell you how to deal with sadness or anger.What i will say is that sadness and anger is just a part of the human condition people are always anger or sad about something so even if you were perfect in everyway you'd still be sad or angry about something. the one thing thats gotten me through is humor and realizing that most people are incredibly ingnornate of people and things they have never had experience in or with (including myself).

ideas to overcome (corny)

1 stay objective in your thinking process- try and understand where people or the world in general is coming from.( its helped me)

What are the chances of my child having cerebral palsy?

My fiancee has cerebral palsy and we want to have a baby but wanted to know what are the chances that our baby would have it. Cerebral palsy runs on his side of the family but not mine. His grandad and a few of his uncles have it but what are the chances that our child would have it? It seems as if the ppl on his side of the family that have it are male so is it more likely that if we have a boy would he have it. Please help! Please no smart remarks...thank you in advance!

I have Cerebral Palsy and it is not a disorder that runs in families. Your fiancee's family might just have it just because. It is simply a lack of oxygen that causes brain damage in the areas of the brain that control balance and fine and gross motor.  (+ info)

Is the stimulation a good treatment against the incapacity of the cerebral cortex?

My child suffers from the incapacity of the cerebral cortex and the medicine recommended as treatment the stimulation. I wanted to know if it is a check treatment against this disease because my child is at present 4 years old but he does not speak and behaves as an 18-month-old child. Help me I am African and to us it has no specialist for this kind of neither case nor processing center there. If I do not find solution, my child risks beginning the school in 11 years. Thank you for your contributions.

As difficult as this is to accept, i would have to say that even if you were in the West, Europe or USA etc and had access to medical resources, your child will always have a disparity between physical age and mental development.

There may be a real likelihood of your child developing ADHD as well if this is not already indicating, which may also be why stimulants are being prescribed as well as the need for neurosynaptic amplification in certain areas.

With such a condition, normal levels of neurotransmitters in the cortical and hippocampic regions do need to be amplified with stimulants so communication with centres of higher brain function are adequate and this is a standard treatment in a developing child so young soas to try and bridge that disparity in development as your child matures through to adulthood, without stimulating lower brain function your child's development will steadily become more disparate between physical and mental maturity and what you seem to already know by saying your child will be starting school at 11 years of age would indeed be true.

With this condition, there is no magic pill which will advance mental development to what is normal and the extents of his lack of development can only be assessed as time advances, too many unknown quotients to be sure about anything.

I would agree for your your child to take the recommended stimulants, i do hope though that the doctor prescribing has had your child properly assessed as to what is the appropriate stimulant medication and properly ascertained dosage and regimen.

Hopefully, as your child grows, the gaps in physical and mental development will close and as his brain matures the stimulants achieve near normal neurotransmitter communication between cortical and higher brain functions, this should happen and your son should be able to lead a fairly normal life by the time he's a teenager but will always be a bit less developed than the majority, that is a sad fact i'm sorry.

He will likely have to have medication for ADHD into adulthood as well but i am certain that without stimulants to raise cortical activity, your son will not develop very much at all, the condition he has is serious so listen to the doctors advice, as long as the doctors are properly qualified.

When you know what stimulants are to be prescribed and at what dosages, i would check that out further just to be sure too much or too little is being prescribed, there are a lot of websites which can aid you in that and you can contact health professionals on-line to ask their expert opinions on your sons treatments, it will be wise to do so, many opinions saying the same will give you reassurance.

Your son may make huge breakthroughs and develop fairly normally as time goes on or he may not, that is something only the passage of time will reveal but children and the human brain are resilient, wonders do happen.

I wish you and your son all the best of luck in life.

Subconjunctival hemorrhage - How fast should your eye get red?

Three days ago I woke up with a small portion of the white of my eye bloodshot. I assume this is Subconjunctival hemorrhage, but I have never had it before this incident. My question is, how fast does your eye get red? Should it happen immediately? My redness has stayed the same during the day, but each day since when I wake up there is more of it, so it appears to be happening overnight (three days running now).

Is it bloodshot, meaning lots of big looking red vessels, or is there a patch of red, like a pool of blood? If it's a patch, it's a subconjunctival hemorrhage and it can spread over the eye and then eventually thin out and reabsorb. Generally it will run it's course within 7 to 10 days. If it's just bloodshot, it's something different. In either case, you should probably see your doctor for clarification and any necessary treatment.  (+ info)

Who is a medical professional i could contact regarding the use of stem cells to cure cerebral palsy.?

My brother is an adult male with cerebral palsy due to birth trauma. I have heard of some interesting research being done regarding the use of stem cells in curing cerebral palsy. Could anyone provide me with a contact for more information or a site where the procedures are discussed more in depth? Thanks.

you could look on line to see who is doing clinical research or conducting
trials on this procedure and may by become part of the research trials.
like U C Davis in california is doing clinical trials on emplantable
contac lenses. you have to pay for the procedure, but at least you
can get it done if you don't want to wait till its available to the public.
if you type stem cell research trials in your computer search bar
i would think something will come up to lead you to what you need.  (+ info)

What kind of treatment available for cerebral ischemia, and what is the success rate of the treatment?

Recently I visited eye doctor as my son is having a squinted eye. After so many tests doctor found out that the back portion of the eye is swollen and he has to undergo MRI. After I search on the internet I found that the swelling could be caused by cerebral ischemia. I am very much worried now as my son is 3 yrs old only now. I would like to know if any treatment available for this, if available what it is and how successful it is. Many thanks for your replies.

As far as supplements go-Niacin(flushing kind), vinpocetine, Ginko Biloba, and CoQ10 .Follow the instructions on the package and make sure you use the standardized versions-consult your pharmacist, especially with any other health problems and other medications either over the counter, or prescriptions.  (+ info)

What are your tips on how to help babysit a child with cerebral palsy?

I am soon going to interview to nanny this summer for two children, one being a young boy with cerebral palsy. Does anyone have an experience babysitting or caring for any children with this condition? Do you have any tips for me or anything I should ask/discuss with the parents when I meet them? Thank you!

I've worked with children with development issues and I find that mostly during the interview the mother more or less talk about what is expected. These children usually have a very scheduled life, activities to stimulate their motor cortex, play time, and sometimes even medications or treatments that you might have to give during your shift Sometimes they also have special diets, specific ways of being fed depending on the severity of the disease or condition. walking can be very difficult, do they have a wheelchair, does this child transfer easily, will you be compensated if you injure your back or fall at their house, do they have insurance for you.
Just a few things to think about..  (+ info)
