my brother in law..age 60 went in to hospital...pain shoulders and arm and numbness side of face..he went in and they are testing him but his vein in his neck that goes to his brain the top of that vein in the head..is leaking blood in the brain..signs of stroke? is there a repair they can do? to the vein to get it to stop bleeding..or what is the prognosis for this diagnosis??
His symptoms are suggestive of a stroke. For this reason, I would like to review his brain CT scan and Doppler ultrasound in order to be able to give a more professional opinion. I remain at your disposal whenever you need.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
