intracraneal bleeding

J J Sierra, M Malillos
Intracraneal bleeding is a rare complication after raquis surgery. It is believed to occur as a drop in the intracraneal pressure after a loss of CSF secondary to an iatrogenic dural tear. We report a patient who after surgery for lumbar stenosis presented a subarachnoid haemorrhage, an intraparenchymal haematoma, and a subdural haematoma. To our knowledge, this is the first report in the literature with such complications after this type of surgery.

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Vestibular schwannoma is the most frequent cerebellopontine angle tumor. The aim of our study is to reflect our experience in the surgical treatment of this tumor MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective study of 420 vestibular schwannomas operated in our hospital between 1994-2014. We include tumor size, preoperative hearing, surgical approaches, definitive facial and hearing functional results, and complications due to surgery. RESULTS: A total of 417 patients with 420 tumors were analyzed, 209 female (50...

Dapsone has been shown to be effective in treating immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) in adults. In children the experience is limited. We describe our experience using dapsone in a female with refractory, symptomatic ITP who suffered intracranic haemorrhage and massive gastric bleeding. After treatment platelet counts was more than 100 x 103/μL, and reached 1000x103/μL. Discontinuation resulted in a rapid decrease in platelet counts, with severe intracranial haemorrhage (ICH). The recovery of dapsone led the platelets count to lower values...

The esthesioneuroblastoma is a rare neuroendocrine tumor that derives from the olfactory cells. In the last 20 years, around 1,000 cases have been described, with an overall survival rate of 60-70% at 5 years. The most common symptoms are nasal bleeding, nasal clogging and, in locally advanced cases, signs/symptoms of intracranic hypertension such as papilla edema, cefalea, and vomiting. The standard treatments are surgery and radiotherapy. Chemotherapy can be used in an adjuvant/neoadjuvant setting and in the metastatic phase, even if its role is still not established with certainty...

We report two cases of intracraneal brain haemorrhage secondary to developmental venous anomaly trombosis recently treated at our Department. First patient was a 28-year old woman on oral contraceptive treatment for a month who was referred to our Department with sudden-onset conscious level deterioration after presenting 24 hours previously with headache, vomits and hemiparesis. Computed Tomography revealed a predominant hypodense area containing hyperdense foci causing mild mass effect and midline-shift in keeping with a haemorrhagic infarction occupying almost completely the right frontal lobe...

INTRODUCTION: Intracraneal vascular malformations are congenital lesions due to alterations in the development of arteriocapillary network. Cavernomas are present in 0.4% of people, and represent 5-13% of all cerebrovascular malformations. They are multilobulated clearly delimited lesions that contain blood at different evolution. Cavernomas can be single or multiple, and sporadic or familial. Inheritance pattern in familial cases is autosomal dominant and three involved genes have been described...

BACKGROUND: Visual assessment of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for xanthochromia (yellow color) is practiced by the majority of laboratories worldwide as a means of diagnosing intracranical bleeds. METHODS: Colorimetric and spectrophotometric analysis of CSF samples for recognizing the presence of bilirubin either in low concentrations or in the presence of hemolysed blood. RESULTS: The experiments provide the physiological and colorimetric basis for abandoning visual assessment of CSF for xanthochromia...

Our clinical experiments with a simulation of intracerebral haematomas in hypertonics and our clinical experiences lead us to the conclusions that a pure isolated ventricular haemorrhage causes according to the quantity of blood only a gradual increase of intracranial pressure. Pia's three classical types are marking points on the continual scale from haematocephalus totalis to haemorrhage. Haematoma rupture into the ventricles is to a certain degree a beneficial increase of intracranial volume reserve. Pia's types can be supplemented with the so called "pseudoventricular haemorrhage" in which the haematoma only bulges into the ventricle and is covered by ependym...
