this patients had weakness on the left side of the body and a headache. can you guess what we did?
Realtime comments disabled
right sided subdural hematoma (fronto-parietal hemorrhage) needing craniotomy to relieve pressure
i geuss the left side of the brain has been filled with some fluid to fill the space thus avoiding the brain bouncing from side to side
Had to consult greg on this one, but we both think its lupus
cranio sacral therapy???just kidding...
looks like a rt. sided subdural hematoma s/p perhaps a fall while he was DRUNK?..lol or a fall in an elderly pt...we need more patient history Dr.Gupta! LOL! =)
right subdural haematoma. weakness affecting the motor cortex.
Could be a possibility, lets see what Dr. Gupta says about the image!?
Looks like he has a midline shift to the left, and the white dot seen is a intraventricular shunt draining the blood from the R side subdural hematoma. Commonly subdurals are caused by a shearing force rupturing a bridge vein...causing a slower bleed and
Looks like a right frontoparietal hemorrhage, but it doesn't look like there are signs of an acute stroke because the brain doesn't look damaged. I'd guess subdural hematoma too, and craniotomy to releave pressure.
Looks like fluid build up on the right side - so relief should be given for head trauma. Stroke???
A bleed of some sort in the back right lobe.
Decompressed the brain not sure what the white thing is there is a shadow so it could be metal just never seen before
Right Parietal Lobe in the back of the head looks damaged and if it affects the left side of the body, could it be a stroke or is it further back in the brain in the Occiptal Lobe that would affect eyesight? Hmmm, what do you say Dr. Gupta?
duh. Just noticed the "R" on the film.
right subdural haematoma --> clot evacuation?
I hope you drained all that fluid from inside of skull. Is image flipped? Left side symp. should come from right hemi.
Well, the right hemisphere def looks wonky, plus there is that white spot on the left, but I'm not sure what part of the brain that is. Looks to me like you need to reduce the swelling and perhaps check for foreign obj.
