Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of nervous system. Neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and disease involving the central and peripheral nervous system (and their subdivisions, the autonomic and somatic nervous system), including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle.
- Spinal cord disorders (see spinal pathology, injury, inflammation)
- Peripheral Neuropathy and other Peripheral nervous system disorders
- Cranial nerve disorders such as Trigeminal Neuralgia and Hemifacial Spasms.
- Autonomic disorders such as Multisystem atrophy.
- Seizure disorder such as Epilpesy
- Sleep disorders such as Narcolepsy, Hypersomnia
- Migraine and other types of Headache such as Cluster Headache and Tension headaches
- Movement Disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system such as
- Parkinsons Disease
- Essential Tremors
- Dystonia, Chorea
- Tourettes Syndrome
- Multiple Sclerosis and various types of
- Peripheral Neuropathy
STROKE AND SEIZURE MANAGEMENT
R.S Neuro & Multispeciality Hospital is the leading hospital for stroke and seizure management in the city and around with 10 bedded Intensive care unit (I.C.U) and 5 beds dedicated to Stoke management. People hailing form all around then city are treated with utmost care and patience and as we know in stroke " Time is Gold" , we take care of your patients with passion to treat.
Stroke management is very fruitful when treated within the first 4.5 hours of ischemic stroke.
Various procedures offered for stroke:
This surgery is used to treat swelling in the brain after both ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke.
When there’s too much swelling in the brain after stroke, it creates unhealthy pressure on the brain (intracranial pressure) that can lead to further brain damage and even death. Hemicraniectomy is an aggressive procedure where a section of the skull – sometimes half of the skull or more – is removed to allow the brain to swell beyond the limits of the skull and alleviate the excess pressure. Once the swelling goes down, the skull can be sutured back into place.
This surgery is used to treat ischemic stroke, which is caused by a blood clot in the brain.
During mechanical embolectomy, the blood clot in the brain is removed using a stent, which is a tiny wire mesh tube that helps prop an artery open. The stent is inserted into an artery through a catheter starting in the leg, making it a much less invasive than brain surgery. When the catheter is removed, the stent and the clot are removed along with it.
These surgeries are used to treat and prevent hemorrhagic stroke.
An aneurysm is a weak, bulging area in the wall of an artery. When an aneurysm in the brain ruptures, it causes a hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in the brain). An aneurysm is more likely to rupture if you have the stroke risk factor of high blood pressure.
a. Aneurysm Clipping
During an aneurysm clipping, a tiny metal clip is used to isolate the aneurysm from your normal blood flow to prevent it from rupturing. The clip is inserted during craniotomy, a type of surgery which involves opening the skull and working directly with the brain. This makes it a highly invasive treatment.
b. Aneurysm Coiling
Aneurysm coil embolization is another way to treat an aneurysm. During coil embolization, tiny metal coils are inserted into the aneurysm bulge to isolate it from the normal blood flow. Eventually, a clot forms and reduces the risk of the aneurysm rupturing.
During carotid endartectomy, a surgeon creates an incision in the neck and goes directly into the carotid artery to remove excess plaque. While this greatly reduces your risk of stroke, there is a 2 -23 % risk of having a stroke during this procedure, and that risk increases to 3-5% if you have already experienced a stroke.
Carotid Angioplasty and Stenting
Carotid angioplasty and stenting is a less invasive way to remove plaque buildup in the carotid arteries. Using a catheter, a balloon is inserted inside the carotid artery and inflated to open up the artery. A stent is then placed in the artery to prop open the artery walls and facilitate healthier blood flow.
