Summary of "Predicting the occurrence of severe intraventricular hemorrhages and ways to prevent their development in preterm infants."

Introduction: Severe intraventricular hemorrhages (IVH) in preterm infants are one of the major public health problems, as they can cause neurological and cognitive impairment, as well as lethal outcomes. The aim: To prevent the development of IVH in preterm infants by developing an algorithm for identification of high risk infants and a bundle for the prediction and prevention of this pathology.

Dexamethasone does not prevent hydrocephalus after severe intraventricular hemorrhage in newborn rats.

The aim of this study was done to determine whether dexamethasone treatment prevents posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus (PHH) development and attenuates brain damage after severe IVH in newborn rats. Sever...

The Origin of Intracranial Pressure Causing Brainstem Hemorrhages.

The origin of secondary brainstem hemorrhages following an acute expansive hemispheric lesion has been attributed to Henri Duret, who proposed that hemorrhaging was caused by a shock wave through the ...

A simple score to predict severe leptospirosis.

The case-fatality rate of severe leptospirosis can exceed 50%. While prompt supportive care can improve survival, predicting those at risk of developing severe disease is challenging, particularly in ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Bleeding into the SUBARACHNOID SPACE due to CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Minor hemorrhages may be asymptomatic; moderate to severe hemorrhages may be associated with INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION and VASOSPASM, INTRACRANIAL.

Bleeding within the CEREBRAL VENTRICLES. It is associated with intraventricular trauma, aneurysm, vascular malformations, hypertension and in VERY LOW BIRTH WEIGHT infants.

Bleeding within the SKULL, including hemorrhages in the brain and the three membranes of MENINGES. The escape of blood often leads to the formation of HEMATOMA in the cranial epidural, subdural, and subarachnoid spaces.

Compounds, usually hormonal, taken orally in order to block ovulation and prevent the occurrence of pregnancy. The hormones are generally estrogen or progesterone or both.

Acute form of MALNUTRITION which usually affects children, characterized by a very low weight for height (below -3z scores of the median World Health Organization standards), visible severe wasting, or occurrence of nutritional EDEMA. It can be a direct or indirect cause of fatality in children suffering from DIARRHEA and PNEUMONIA. Do not confuse with starvation, a condition in which the body is not getting enough food, usually for extended periods of time.
