A decreased intake of brightly colored vegetables results in increased levels of serum homocysteine, and homocysteinemia is associated with the progression of arteriosclerosis. Moreover, homocysteinemia is a known risk factor for cerebral infarction. Here, we report three cases wherein multiple simultaneous intracranial hemorrhages developed in the presence of homocysteinemia. The dietary habits of the patients involved indicated that decreased intake of brightly colored vegetables and the consequent progression of arteriosclerosis caused intracranial hemorrhage...

The article is devoted the study of complex research 126 patients with a heavy craniocerebral trauma, accompanied vnutrimozgovoy traumatic haematoma and hearth crushing of cerebrum, passing treatment in the clinic of neuro-surgery. The use of modern diagnostic methods of research considerably changed the informative providing of diagnostic and medical process at the different hearth defeats of cerebrum, including traumatic hearth injuries of cerebrum. The long-term looking after intracraneal haematomas allowed to mark that haematomas suffer successive changes which are expressly traced on computer tomography researches in course of time...

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...

Intracranial hemorrhage during pregnancy is a rare complication, and it results in a high perinatal mortality rate. We recently encountered 2 cases of intracranial hemorrhage during pregnancy. They underwent cesarean section under general anesthesia. Anesthetic management is difficult because we must avoid hemodynamic change and increasing intracranial pressure, and we have difficult airway management. It is also very difficult to prepare for the prevention before the onset because it develops suddenly, and quick action is important...

The removal of pathologically generated free radicals produced during ischemia, reperfusion and intracranical hemorrhage seems to be a viable approach to neuroprotection. However, at present, no neuroprotective agent has proven effective in focal ischemic stroke phase III trials, despite the encouraging data in animal models. This study aimed to explore the effect of the brain penetrant low molecular weight radical scavenger bis(1-hydroxy-2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-4-piperidinyl)-decandioate (IAC) in neurological damage subsequent to ischemia-reperfusion injury in Mongolian gerbils...

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: Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAT) is due to the transplacental transfer of circulating maternal alloantibodies developed against fetal platelet antigens inherited from the father. Intracranial hemorrhage occurs in 15-30% of the cases, and very important neurological sequelaes can be due to it. CASE REPORT: We present the clinical and immunohematologic findings of a case of severe NAT that had two siblings who died by this illness. In the 31st week of gestation an intracranial hemorrhage is detected by echography, the birth was by caesarean section...

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...

INTRODUCTION: The anticoagulants are drugs with possible serious secondary effects, being one of the most serious the appearance of intracraneal hemorrhages, being able to vary the clinical course as they were hemorrhages in the deep supratentorial compartment (ST) or in the infratentorial (IT). OBJECTIVES: Compare the therapeutic attitude, the evolution and the prognostic of the cerebral hemorrhages in patient with warfarin treatment, in function of their localization ST or IT...

In preparing and maintaining a proper anaesthetic plan in the patient with subarachnoid haemorrhage undergoing delayed surgery, various concerns occur to the anaesthesist and the intensivist. These problems are related to the intracranic pathology but also to the structural, biochemical and functional changes occurring in a lot of organs and systems. Aim of anaesthetic approach is a correct preoperative evaluation and the maintenance of intracranic and systemic homeostasis. Systemically it is frequent the evidence of electrocardiographic abnormalities, due in same instances to myocardial hypoperfusion, of respiratory dysfunctions, of idroelettrolitic and metabolic changes leading to hypovolemia, hyponatremia and hypokalemia, and of coagulation disorders...

The case of a pregnant patient who had a massive intracraneal haemorrhage at 18 weeks of gestation is presented. Patient's neurological damage evolved to brain death, but the fetus continued in good condition. The decision of withdrawing life support or to continue supporting the mother's life to allow fetal development aroused difficult ethical questions, both to relatives and professionals. This is an exceptional situation of a heart beating cadaver and a non viable fetus whose life depends on the continuation of treatments that are considered as experimental...

We report a 15-year-old boy with chronic myelogenous leukemia who received unrelated bone marrow transplantation (uBMT) after surgical resection of cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM). The incidence of cerebral hemorrhage caused by rupture of cerebral ABM in cases of BMT is uncertain. However, since the risk of rupture of AVM was supposed to increase due to both severe thrombocytopenia after intensive chemotherapy and increased intracranical pressure because of total body irradiation (TBI) as preconditioning therapy for BMT, we have first carried out surgical resection of the cerebral AVM, and subsequently performed uBMT...

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...

Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is an almost constant finding in Alzheimer's disease and in Alzheimer type senile dementia (EA/DSTA) but it has also been described in association with other processes such as in age-related hereditary or non hereditary cerebral hemorrhage (CH) relapse. The case of a non hypertensive 78 year old women is presented. Over a period of 27 months the patient had 3 cerebral hemorrhages located in the left parietotemporal, caudate nucleus and right frontobasal and right parietotemporal lobes, all of which had cortico-subcortical topography and eruption of blood to the subarachnoid space...

The clinical histories of 27 neonates ventilated with high frequency respirators (Volumetric Diffusive Respirator VDR-2) have been analyzed in order to evaluate the efficiency of this type of ventilation in neonatal pathology. The average gestational age of these patients was 32 +/- 4 weeks. Most of them (70%) presented respiratory distress due to hyaline membrane disease. Of the remaining cases, three (11%) presented with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, two with pulmonary hypertension, two with meconium aspiration syndrome, one with Group B Streptococal sepsis/shock and one with case diaphragmatic agenesia...

Intracranial cerebral herniations occurring in 420 brains from consecutive necropsies are studied. They were present in 65 brains; in 23 there was secondary lesions in the upper brainstem. Temporal herniations in one or both sides, was the most frequent finding. Terminal anoxia is believed to be one of the most important factors. There was decrease of the secondary lesions of the brainstem after 60 years of age.
