• hypertension
  • Additionally there is: CT scan MRI scans The major differential to consider in empty sella syndrome is intracranial hypertension, of both unknown and secondary causes, and an epidermoid cyst, which can mimic cerebrospinal fluid due to its low density on CT scans, although MRI can usually distinguish the latter diagnosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Calcium channel blockers are used as antihypertensive drugs, i.e., as medications to decrease blood pressure in patients with hypertension. (wikipedia.org)
  • normal
  • Empty sella syndrome (abbreviated ESS) is where the pituitary gland shrinks or becomes flattened, filling the sella turcica with cerebrospinal fluid on imaging instead of the normal pituitary. (wikipedia.org)
  • To compensate for the partial blockage and increase the CSF flow to normal rates, the pressure in the third ventricle is increased thereby also increasing the velocity of the CSF. (wikipedia.org)
  • edema
  • Side effects of these drugs may include but are not limited to: Constipation Dizziness, headache, redness in the face Fluid buildup in the legs and ankle edema Gingival overgrowth Rapid heart rate Slow heart rate Research indicates ethanol is involved in the inhibition of L-type calcium channels. (wikipedia.org)
  • Edema is the build-up of fluid within the brain tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • calcium
  • Dihydropyridine (DHP) calcium channel blockers are derived from the molecule dihydropyridine and often used to reduce systemic vascular resistance and arterial pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • headache
  • Quality of the headache has been described as dull and/or pressure-like sensation, and throbbing and/or pulsating sensation. (wikipedia.org)
  • condition
  • In addition, some laboratory tests may indicate a condition that puts a person at risk for developing dementia, such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure. (caregiver.org)
  • Multi-infarct dementia is not reversible or curable, but recognition of an underlying condition (high blood pressure) often leads to a specific treatment that may modify the progression of this disorder. (alzark.org)
  • Rhinorrhea or rhinorrhoea is a condition where the nasal cavity is filled with a significant amount of mucus fluid. (wikipedia.org)
  • build
  • Many individuals have hearing loss, either conductive (in which pressure behind the eardrum causes fluid from the lining of the middle ear to build up and eventually congeal), neurosensory (in which tiny hair cells in the inner ear are damaged), or both. (wikipedia.org)
  • healthcare
  • SOUNDBITE (English) DR. PETER WEINSTOCK, CO-DEVELOPER OF 3D SIMULATOR FOR PRACTICING BRAIN SURGERY, SAYING: "Some people say that medicine, in some ways, is the last high stakes industry not to rehearse priority game time, and I think that's because of a lot of the pressures on healthcare.

  • disease
  • Encephalitis, acute inflammation in the brain Neurosyphilis, an infection in the brain or spinal chord AIDS, disease of the immune system Neuroleptic Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a fluid that is found exclusively in the brain and spinal cord that circulates between sections of the brain offering an extra layer of protection. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • Tarlov cysts are fluid-filled sacs that most often affect nerve roots in the sacrum, the group of bones at the base of the spine. (medhelp.org)
  • found
  • Glycosaminoglycans (formerly called mucopolysaccharides) are also found in the fluids that lubricate joints. (wikipedia.org)
  • degree
  • By having both cardiac depressant and vasodilator actions, benzothiazepines are able to reduce arterial pressure without producing the same degree of reflex cardiac stimulation caused by dihydropyridines. (wikipedia.org)
  • back
  • Meningocele and myelomeningocele generally involve a fluid-filled sac - visible on the back - protruding from the spinal cord. (daviddarling.info)
