161. CEREBRAL ATROPHY — Clinical Manifestations in Adults (PubMed)

personality deviations were observed in 31 per cent. Although the electroencephalogram was abnormal in many patients, it appeared to be of little aid in the diagnosis of the cerebral atrophy. The spinal fluid did not seem to be consistently altered in any significant or diagnostic manner. Most of the patients in the 35 to 50 year age group did not have the symptoms characteristic of Alzheimer's disease, and in only a few cases did the symptoms resemble those of other recognized disease entities. (...) CEREBRAL ATROPHY — Clinical Manifestations in Adults A study was made of the cases of 200 patients with demonstrated cerebral atrophy. In patients under 70 years of age cerebral atrophy was twice as common in men as women. Over 70 years the ratio was reversed. The incidence of cerebral atrophy was relatively high in the age group 35 to 50. Convulsions were present in more than a third of the 200 patients. Neurological abnormalities were present in 51 per cent of the entire series. Significant

The clinical expression of the vascular disease was modified by concurrent abnormalities and reflected the sum total of the complexities which coexisted. The pathophysiology of the unconscious state necessarily depends on the inciting factors. Ketoacidotic coma is associated with depressed cerebral oxygen consumption. Spinal fluid (...) Cerebral Syndromes of Diabetes Mellitus Three labile diabetic patients had recurring episodes of altered sensorium. Each had severe cerebrovascular disease with superimposed metabolic derangements, including ketoacidosis, hyperglycemia without ketosis, mild uremia, and possibly cerebral edema. Two of the patients were examined postmortem.

165. Effect of fibrin glue on the prevention of persistent cerebral spinal fluid leakage after incidental durotomy during lumbar spinal surgery. (PubMed)

Effect of fibrin glue on the prevention of persistent cerebral spinal fluid leakage after incidental durotomy during lumbar spinal surgery. Approximately one million spinal surgeries are performed in the United States each year. The risk of an incidental durotomy (ID) and resultant persistent cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage is a significant concern for surgeons, as this complication has been associated with increased length of hospitalization, worse neurological outcome, and the development (...) glue revealed that prior lumbar spinal surgery was the only univariate predictor of persistent CSF leak, conferring a 2.8-fold increase in risk. A persistent CSF leak, defined as continued drainage of CSF from the operative incision within 90 days of the surgery that required an intervention greater than simple bed rest or over-sewing of the wound, was noted in a total of 64 patients (11.7%). This persistent CSF leak rate was significantly higher (P < 0.001) in patients with prior lumbar surgery

Definitions, classification, and pathophysiology 3.1 Definitions Syncope is defined as TLOC due to cerebral hypoperfusion, characterized by a rapid onset, short duration, and spontaneous complete recovery. Syncope shares many clinical features with other disorders; it therefore presents in many differential diagnoses. This group of disorders is labelled TLOC. TLOC is defined as a state (...) attack; TLOC = transient loss of consciousness. The clinical features characterizing TLOC are usually derived from history taking from patients and eyewitnesses. Specific characteristics that aid diagnosis are outlined in section 3 of the . TLOC groups are defined using pathophysiology: the qualifying criterion for syncope is cerebral hypoperfusion; for epileptic seizures, it is abnormal excessive brain activity; and for psychogenic TLOC it is the psychological process of conversion.

in a delayed manner, that are presumed to have occurred in the perinatal period. These infants typically present with pathological early handedness or seizures, leading to brain imaging and the diagnosis of a remote infarction. As in adults, pediatric stroke can also be classified according to whether the underlying cause is ischemic or hemorrhagic, as detailed in the NIH Common Data Elements. Ischemic stroke includes arterial ischemic stroke (AIS) and venous infarction caused by cerebral sinovenous (...) focal motor seizures involving only 1 extremity. , In 1 study, seizures at the time of AIS occurred in 94% of neonates versus only 17% of older children. Occasionally, perinatal AIS presents with encephalopathy, leading to suspicion for hypoxic-ischemic injury rather than AIS; neuroimaging distinguishes the 2 diagnoses. The left cerebral hemisphere is affected in 80% of neonates with unilateral infarctions. Individuals with presumed perinatal stroke may seem normal after birth but later present
