• stroke
  • Apixaban is indicated for the following: To lower the risk of stroke and embolism in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Apixaban is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in people with non-valvular atrial fibrillation and at least one of the following risk factors: prior stroke or transient ischemic attack, age 75 years or older, diabetes mellitus, or symptomatic heart failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Apixaban and other newer anticoagulants (dabigatran and rivaroxaban) appear equally effective as warfarin in preventing non-hemorrhagic stroke in people with atrial fibrillation and are associated with lower risk of intracranial bleeding. (wikipedia.org)
  • Apixaban for preventing stroke and systemic embolism in people with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation" (PDF). (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms
  • The patient is closely assessed for signs and symptoms of increased intracranial pressure, respiratory distress, convulsions, bleeding from the ears or nose, or drainage of cerebrospinal fluid from the ears or nose (which most probably indicates a fracture). (mhmedical.com)
  • diagnosis
  • Philadelphia: Elsevier Inc. 2006 Vol 1: Chap. 87, pp1223-1259 Diagnosis of IIA is based on finding an intracranial aneurysm on vascular imaging in the presence of predisposing infectious conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • mortality
  • However a significant mortality rate was noted, mostly from intracranial haemorrhage at 7 days, but later mortality was not significant amongst treated and non-treated patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • pressure
  • Intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring is likely to guide therapeutics, and certain research on adults or on children, suggest that IH therapeutic approach, for instance for bacterial meningitis, would improve the prognosis. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • In severely raised intracranial pressure, the level of consciousness is decreased, the blood pressure rises, the heart rate falls and the patient assumes an abnormal posture. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • At the same time, we prefer the use of a more specific and accurate heading, namely, infected intracranial aneurysm, to include the categories of intracranial bacterial aneurysm, fungal aneurysm, spirochetal aneurysm, infested or amebic aneurysm, viral aneurysm and phytotic aneurysm, according to the specific infecting organism or agent. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • A subsequent study, however, showed that 10% of patients with confirmed thrombosis had a normal D-dimer, and in those who had presented with only a headache 26% had a normal D-dimer. (wikipedia.org)
  • development
  • The development of thrombosis is classically due to a group of causes named Virchow's triad (alterations in blood flow, factors in the vessel wall and factors affecting the properties of the blood). (wikipedia.org)
  • Death
  • In 2005 the UK the Parliamentary Health Select Committee determined the annual rate of death due to thrombosis was 25,000 with at least 50% being hospital-acquired. (wikipedia.org)
