Aneurysms are dilatations of the arteries due to a fault in the vessel wall which triggers an increase in diameter and carries the risk of rupture and Aneurysms are dilatations of the arteries due to a fault in the vessel wall which triggers an increase in diameter and carries the risk of rupture and massive internal bleeding. Most cerebral aneurysms are congenital, but can also be traumatic, tumor cause, arteriosclerosis, by common infectious cause or drug consumption. Depending on the shape of the aneurysm are divided into secular, fusiform, and use as side; They may also be classified by size. All aneurysms may be complicated by rupture of the vessel and cause bleeding in the brain, causing a stroke acidente, which can cause irreversible nerve damage. Aneurysms are asymptomatic, symptoms only when they break, causing intense headaches, nausea, vomiting, stiff neck, seizures or sudden loss of consciousness. For diagnosis, several tests such as angiography or CT are used, and the treatment depends on the size of the aneurysm and associated risk factors. There are several alternatives for both conservative and surgical treatment, which must evaluate a neurosurgeon. ...

Brain tumors are formed because of the proliferation of cells that grow and multiply abnormally in the brain, being able to give blood vessels, c Brain tumors are formed because of the proliferation of cells that grow and multiply abnormally in the brain, being able to give blood vessels, cranial nerves, glands, bones, brain parenchyma and embryonic remains. It also may occur in two ways: by pressing brain areas for growth or invade surrounding tissue, in which case it is a malignant brain tumor. Symptoms of brain tumors include hand tremors, changes in mood, dizziness, unsteadiness and impaired alertness. Regarding treatment, absolutely it depends on where the brain tumor, degree of involvement and the patient's health are. Surgery is one of the most common measures to reduce the pressure that is suffering the brain. Also, radiation therapy and chemotherapy are used when surgery has been ruled out or have not achieved the desired results with the same benefits. ...

The tumor types that most often develop metastases in the It is a type of cancer that started elsewhere in the body, and that has spread to the brain. The tumor types that most often develop metastases in the brain are melanoma, lung carcinoma, breast carcinoma and kidney. However, other types of cancers rarely spread to the brain, such as colon or prostate cancer. In other cases, rare, a tumor can spread to the brain from an unknown location. I then spoke of unknown primary cancer. The rate of cancers that cause brain metastasis is approximately one fourth. When this occurs metastasis, the tumor occurs in the brain and in their growth, cause inflammation and intracranial pressure. ...
It is the growth of a cell mass in the vertebrae. Cancerous tumors that originate in the spine are rare, but the column is commonplace to other cancers that spread. One in four cancer patients will develop a tumor that metastasizes to the spine and cause pain and injury. However, not all tumors are cancerous column. ...
Congenital malformations are defects in the baby's body that develop during pregnancy. Thanks to advances in medicine birth defects occur very rarely, only 15 of every 1,000 newborns in Spain. Most of these malformations are of unknown origin but may be caused by genetic abnormalities, drug consumption, maternal age, diseases that the mother has during pregnancy and even food that keeps during pregnancy. ...
Cranial endoscopy is a technique increasingly used in neurosurgery, being a little invasive to access the cranial cavity through an endoscope procedure. Through small holes in the body can be accessed with the endoscopic device to it to carry out different types of surgeries that were previously much more complicated operations and requiring completely open the skull. Also, thanks to the endoscope can be displayed hidden spaces of the brain, in all angles, making it very useful for interventions such as those to treat ulnar nerve entrapment (which occurs in the elbow). By using the endoscope in this operation it is accomplished the final scar is much smaller than in conventional procedures. ...
It is any intervention that treats problems in the brain and surrounding structures. It may be necessary to intervene a tumor, bleeding from trauma, blood vessel problems, infections of the brain, cranial pressure and certain diseases such as epilepsy and Parkinson's. ...
Stroke means the sudden cessation of cerebral circulation after injury of cerebral vessels, which starts unexpectedly and can develop within minutes in major neurological syndromes. Three basic ways of mechanisms of action are known: haemorrhagic (atherosclerosis and hypertension are usually most frequent causes them); cerebral thrombosis, arteriosclerosis again being the most common cause; and, thirdly, strokes. Clinically, depending on the location of the lesion some specific neurological signs, which may be in the form of motor, sensory impairment, and, in severe cases, coma and death will manifest. In the overall treatment of stroke it is essential to control risk factors such as hypertension, heart disease, snuff, diabetes mellitus ... ...
Acute ischemia is the reduction or elimination of the blood supply in an area or organ. The causes may be varied: outside the glass, compression, tumors, scars, etc; or internal, such as thickening of the vessel wall by chronic inflammation, tumor thrombus ... In any case, the three most important causes of this clinical picture are thromboses, embolisms and trauma. Clinically manifested by a sudden and intense pain that does not respond to usual painkillers. It occurs more frequently in the lower extremities, but can affect any area of the body. Ultimately, the lack of blood nutrition can trigger gangrene of ischemic tissue. ...
Congenital malformations of the central nervous system are related to alterations in the neural tube, which most institutions neurosurgical treatment, disrafismos and craniosynostosis, abnormal neuronal proliferation and megalencefalias microcephaly, abnormal migration include neuronal, lissencephaly, pachygyria, schizencephaly, agenesis of the corpus callosum, heterotopias and cortical dysplasias, spinal cord injuries and spinal malformations dysraphias. ...
The nervous system is a network of tissue whose function is to quickly capture and process signals to control and coordinate all body organs. So, I gra timely and effective interaction with the changing environment. Its basic unit are neurons, specialized cells whose function is to coordinate the actions of the body through chemical and electrical signals sent from the other end joins the body. ...
Neurostimulation works by intercepting pain signals before they reach the brain. For this, a small system is implanted in the body. The system, similar to a heart pacemaker, is used to replace the pain of a different feel. Some people describe the feeling as a gentle massage or in some cases merely the absence of pain. ...
Radiosurgery is a treatment for cancer. It is the name given to the medical procedure known as radiotherapy.
The spine surgery is to correct structural abnormalities of the spine that cause pain. It is indicated in cases where there is significant compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots, and when it is due undoubtedly to the structural abnormality detected. One of those treated by surgery of cervical spine injury is a herniated disc. Cervical surgery may be necessary to reduce pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots, when pain is caused by a herniated disc or a bone of spinal canal. Trauma surgery may also be required to stabilize the cervical spine and minimize the possibility of paralysis, when a fracture or dislocation causes a vertebral instability. Likewise, cervical surgery is also used in case of degenerative diseases. ...
The tethered cord syndrome is a neurological condition that causes an abnormally low position of the spinal cord within the spinal canal. This alteration prevents normal development. The symptoms caused by this disease in children include difficulty walking, scoliosis, foot deformities, impaired bladder function and other problems that appear gradually with growth. In later times, the tethered cord syndrome can cause back pain and leg weakness, muscle atrophy, numbness ... The treatment for this condition is, in most cases, surgery to release the spinal cord position in which it is anchored. ...
Trigeminal neuralgia is a nerve disorder that causes stabbing pain or shock type in parts of the face. Your pain comes from the trigeminal nerve that carries the sensations of touch and pain from the face, eyes, sinuses and mouth to the brain. This enfermerdad affects usually adults but can affect anyone. ...
It's a birthmark or a congenital malformation that is made up of veins, capillaries, arteries and lymph vessels. There are different types of vascular malformations that differ in function of the affected blood vessel. Are persententes from birth and increase its size parallel to the birth of the child. ...
