[ Watch the Video: Vanderbilt Scientists Employ Robotics to Fight Brain Clots ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online When a vein or artery in the brain bursts, the resulting blood leak causes an intracerebral hemorrhage. The pressure on the brain from the hemorrhage can cause severe damage and even death in 40 percent of cases. In an effort to reduce the damage caused by an intracerebral hemorrhage, a team of researchers from Vanderbilt University has developed a new...

Measuring blood flow in the brain may be an easy, noninvasive way to predict stroke or hemorrhage in children receiving cardiac or respiratory support through a machine called ECMO, according to a new study by researchers at Nationwide Children´s Hospital. Early detection would allow physicians to alter treatment and take steps to prevent these complications–the leading cause of death for patients on ECMO. Short for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, ECMO is used when a...

Video of technique now available in the Journal of Visualized Experiments A new research technique, pioneered by Dr. Maria Angela Franceschini, will be published in JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) on March 14th. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School have developed a non-invasive optical measurement system to monitor neonatal brain activity via cerebral metabolism and blood flow. Of the nearly four million children born in the United States...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online People who drink heavily are more prone to experience a stroke almost a decade and a half earlier in life, according to a study published in the journal Neurology. Researchers found that drinking three or more alcoholic drinks per day may put you at higher risk of having a stroke earlier than if you didn´t drink alcohol. In order to make the findings, the team used 540 participants with an average age of 71 who had a type...

Risk lessens over time if they quit, but still remains for heavy smokers Smoking more than 20 cigarettes a day doubles the risk of a potentially fatal brain bleed as a result of a burst aneurysm, finds research published online in the Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery and Psychiatry. If a smoker quits, the risk diminishes over time, but it still persists suggests the study. An aneurysm is a bulge in a weakened artery, which, if it bursts causes blood to leak into the brain. The...

Treatment guidelines updated for aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage Patients who are diagnosed in the emergency room with a specific type of brain bleed should be considered for immediate transfer to a hospital that treats at least 35 cases a year, according to a new scientific statement from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. The Guidelines for the Management of Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (aSAH) is published online in Stroke, an American Heart...

New research from the University of Calgary's Hotchkiss Brain Institute shows that by using a CT scan (computerized tomography), doctors can predict which patients are at risk of continued bleeding in the brain after a stroke. This vital information will allow doctors to utilize the most powerful blood clotting medications for those with the highest risk. One in three individuals will continue to accumulate blood in the brain from a leak in a small artery. Pooling blood in the brain has...
