SEE MR, why did you consulted neurosurgeon? that means, wheather she,is suffering from high blood pressur sinc long time? or anything else? brain angiogram is different from brain angiography,first one is non invasive investigation,while 2one is procedure carried out to correct abnormalitis in brain circulation,of course you can take reports of MRI by requesting hospital dr or RMO OR ADMINISTRATOR. THING IS THAT WHOMSEVER YOU CONSULT, IF THEY WILL BE HAVING ALL RIGHTS TO INVESTIGATE PATIENT WITHOT ANY1S PREIER PERMISSION,ESPICALLY IN CONSULTATIONS OF SUPER SPECIALISTS.

hi, my 34 yr old healthy son suffered cerebral brain hemorrhage in mid-february with no prior symptoms until actual event. Then had extreme nausea, vomiting, crushing head/neck pain. 3 days later cerebral angiography done to explore area and determine damage. Neurosurgeon was unable to see actual blood vessels involved due to unreabsorbed blood sitting on the surface covering vessels involved (i m guessing similar to unresolved hematoma under skin surface) but did find abnormal fistula. 2nd procedure done 4 days after 1st and neurosurgeon said he dropped glue on the area to immobilize blood vessels believed to be involved in hemorrhage and closed off fistula with more glue . why is radiation used in the angiography & what is the glue ? they didn t inform my son that radiation would be involved and i m not getting a clear picture of it s purpose. any info appreciated. he s still experiencing pain with continued light/sound/motion sensitivity.

Sir, My Father (age 67) had some chest pains and problems and so he consulted a physician. All the tests were done and he was reffered to a specialist Cardiologist. The Cardiologist checked and asked him to take up the TMT Test. During the TMT test,he was only able to take that for 4 minutes 9 seconds because he experienced very dried up mouth,throat and fatigue. Finally,the Cardiologist examined the reports and confirmed that his ARTERIES are blocked and asked him that it would be good to do a ANGIOGRAPHY. VERY VERY IMPORTANT- The Cardiologist prescribed to take a medication called ECHOSPRIN-75 once daily.But after the first day,there was severe reactions like suffocation,breathing problem,very weakness and loss of balance of his body.So,we immediately stopped the medication. So,i need your help and it would be very good if you could please give your Interpretations,observations and explain me the present condition of his heart.I humbly request you all for your support as soon as possible because i dont know much about these things and is it needed to go for a Angiography. ****I have attached a DOCUMENT with HIS TMT test results,echo-cardiography.Please let me know if you need any other reports and i will attach them.
