headache, cold mistaken ? beware cerebral aneurysm struck!  2018-7-11 22:10


cooler weather, if accompanied by severe headache, unilateral limb weakness, coma, brain aneurysm rupture careful! a 47-year-old lin, tainan living woman, unable to stand due to headache, thought it was a simple cold, so to neighboring clinics for injections, medication, but was actually a headache to not talk until the medical examination found cerebrovascular left there is a 0.6 cm thick cerebral aneurysm rupture, but fortunately in a timely surgery physician, has to save 1 life.

taiwan dalin tzu chi hospital neurosurgeon wu, md, this woman three years ago had appeared headaches, but when medication or injections will be fine, but i did not expect this one time so serious , originally thought simply a cold, did not think was actually a headache to not talk, stand up.

brain aneurysm subarachnoid hemorrhage

by computer tomography and found to be typical spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage due to ruptured cerebral aneurysm is suspected, then injected development agent and then do a second computer tomography, it was found that the left cerebral vascular a 0.6 cm thick cerebral aneurysm rupture.

during the procedure, so as not to affect the aneurysm clip in default of other brain tissue, while the use of "green light microscope-assisted development" approach, in real-time view of vascular surgery and aneurysm

the situation with the location, the exact folder except aneurysm and peripheral vascular ensure affected.

time bomb prone to cause death risk

wu, md, emphasized that the brain of cerebral aneurysms is not a time bomb, occurs between 45-60 years old, male to female ratio of about 2: 3, though not a tumor, but if the hardening of the arteries or high blood pressure, easily lead to cerebral vascular rupture, resulting in subarachnoid hemorrhage, serious and even cause death.

typically, there were 3 patients due to a ruptured aneurysm and died on the spot, after a high chance of a brain aneurysm rupture within 24 hours and then broken, and if he did have a fracture/mortality 3; therefore, patients should be actively cerebral aneurysms and aneurysms ruined condition accordance position and determine treatment, including surgery or blood clots.

especially in seasons when coupled with temperature changes, so that a sudden increase in blood pressure, thus increasing the chance of aneurysm rupture, and sometimes ruptured cerebral aneurysm, there will be a severe vascular contraction will cause serious stroke, making nerve damage, paralysis, coma and consciousness, and even death in severe cases.

anti-diagnosis of aneurysm rupture

1. in no brain computed tomography-based developer, can be found subarachnoid hemorrhage, vascular developing further with computed tomography can identify location of the aneurysm.

2.cta (computed tomography vascular development) and mra (magnetic resonance angiography development), available at the health examination for the diagnosis of unruptured cerebral aneurysms.

physician reminder:

most of the patients were ruined when the aneurysm, there has been severe headache, double vision, nausea, vomiting, unilateral limb weakness, coma, etc. if will be found, so the usual blood pressure control is very important, in addition should keep warm, but also to get rid of bad habits, such as smoking, alcoholism, etc., must not be overlooked.
