• interstitial
  • Aβ circulates in plasma, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and brain interstitial fluid (ISF) mainly as soluble Aβ40 Senile plaques contain both Aβ40 and Aβ42, while vascular amyloid is predominantly the shorter Aβ40. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is this swelling of the individual cells of the brain that is seen as the main distinguishing characteristic of cytotoxic edema, as opposed to vasogenic edema, wherein the influx of fluid is typically seen in the interstitial space rather than within the cells themselves. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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.

  • 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)
  • 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)
