Acute vertigo is a common presentation of inner ear disease. However, it can also be caused by more serious conditions, especially posterior circulation stroke. Differentiating between these two conditions by ...
Conclusion: Based on current clinical studies, this systematic review and meta-analysis will provide evidence-based basis for the efficacy and safety of acupuncture in treating PCIV. Trial registration: The protocol for this review has been registered in the INPLASY network (Registration number: INPLASY202070116).
Conclusion: Since CADASIL is a rare disease, it is imperative to raise awareness of its unique clinical condition as well as variation in its clinical presentations. It is crucial that the overlapping symptoms between MS and CADASIL be thoroughly examined to avoid misdiagnosis and treatment complications. The involvement of autoimmune mechanisms in CADASIL and the role of NOTCH3 gene mutations in provoking an autoimmune process should be further investigated.
CONCLUSIONS: Our protocol has proven to be a useful tool to differentiate a possible acute vestibular syndrome of central origin from a peripheral one, avoiding unnecessary imaging tests. The most frequent cause of activation of the protocol was clinical-exploratory disagreement seen by the ENT doctor. PMID: 32862974 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: By applying a methodical approach to examination of patients with dizziness and vertigo, localization of the offending lesion, management, and even elucidation of the underlying diagnosis is feasible.
Conclusions: MMP-9 was associated with VBE and independent of VAD. High levels of MMP-9 may predict risk for ischemic stroke in patients with vertigo or dizziness who also have vascular risk factors.
Acute vertigo (sense of motion) can be the sole manifestation of a posterior circulation stroke, and often gets missed in the emergency department (ED). The studies for evaluation of central vertigo have focused on physical exam findings, which require expertise and may not be suitable for rapid triage by a nurse in ED or by paramedics.
Authors: Araki K, Takeuchi R, Katada F, Fukutake T Abstract Rotatory vertigo is known to have not only peripheral causes, e.g., Meniere's disease, vestibular neuritis, and benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, but also central causes, e.g., stroke, hemorrhage, and tumor. In most cases, central rotatory vertigo is caused by a lesion in the brainstem or cerebellum, but rare cases with a cerebral lesion have also been reported. We herin describe a unique case with acute rotatory vertigo following a small hemorrhage in the left superior temporal gyrus, which probably led to a dysfunction of the visual-vestibular system...
CONCLUSION: These findings strengthen clinical awareness of early warning to identify patients with potential relapse risk of BPPV and clinicians should counsel patients regarding the importance of follow-up after diagnosis of BPPV. PMID: 32776833 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
