C Patients should be placed in the upright sitting position, if their medical condition allows. C h ypoxia inducing positions (lying on the left side regardless of affected side or slumped in a chair) should be avoided.

Positioning also has an effect on cerebral blood flow and lying flat as opposed to elevating the head by 15 to 30 degrees improves middle cerebral artery blood flow velocity but no significant effects have been shown so far on patient outcomes. 28 The effects of positioning on blood pressure and orthostatic hypotension are inconclusive and require further study. 27 The traditional advice to nurse patients with head elevation between 30 and 45 degrees following large hemispheric stroke is largely based

2007. Coma after spinal anaesthesia in a patient with an unknown intracerebral tumour. (Abstract)

Coma after spinal anaesthesia in a patient with an unknown intracerebral tumour. Spinal anaesthesia is contraindicated in patients with elevated intracranial pressure or space-occupying intracranial lesions. Drainage of the lumbar cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) can increase the pressure gradient between the spinal, supratentorial and infratentorial compartments. This can result in rapid herniation of the brain stem or occluding hydrocephalus. We present a case of a female patient with an occult (...) brain tumour who received a spinal anaesthesia for an orthopaedic procedure. The primary course of anaesthesia was uneventful. Several hours after surgery, the patient became increasingly disoriented and agitated. The next day, she was found comatose. A computed tomogram of the head revealed herniation of the brain stem, resulting in an occluding hydrocephalus due to a prior not known infratentorial mass. By acute relieving of the intracranial pressure by external CSF drainage, the mass was removed

% of osteoporosis-related fractures noted in the WHI trial were nonvertebral and nonhip fractures. Dual-energy x-ray ab- sorptiometry scans and spinal radiography were not per- formed in the overall population at entry into the study or during treatment. Hence, the reduction in clinically evident (that is, painful) vertebral fractures likely underestimates the true effect because approximately 60% of these frac- tures are reportedly silent. The number of hip fractures was 14 significantly reduced by 50% (5 per (...) and perimenopausal women. In addition, chronic disorders associated with both aging and the menopausal state affect the brain, skeleton, integument, and urogenital and cardiovascular systems. The role of MHT in the pre- vention of such disorders remains controversial. This consensus document will present recommen- dations for the use of MHT for the relief of menopausal symptoms.

gastrointestinal or cerebral bleed and use of anti‐platelet medication, are associated with a higher risk of bleeding. The use of vitamin K results in more rapid reduction in INR than discontinuation of the warfarin alone ( ).

Patients with INR higher than 8·0 are at a significantly high risk of bleeding. have demonstrated that patients with INR of >10 can (...) on warfarin are more likely to have a cerebral bleed with more minor injury and there should be a lower threshold for CT scanning ( ). In general if the head injury was sufficient to cause facial or scalp laceration or bruising or persistent headache, the patient should have an urgent CT scan. Patients on warfarin with a strong suspicion of intracerebral haematoma after a clear head injury should have their INR reversed with PCC immediately and before the CT and INR results are available.
