The nervous system that comprises the brain, nerves and the spinal cord is called the control center of the body. When our nervous system is working well, we can function on all levels like swallowing, walking, breathing, and speaking. Many of these are automatic functions and do not need deep thought, but the very same system also enables us to think deeply.
The brain has approximately 86 billion nerve cells, and there exist more than one trillion connections among the nerve cells and the brain through the body. But problems can occur in the nervous system that can have a profound impact. Sometimes, these conditions can even be fatal.
There are many different types of brain diseases like tumours, seizures, infections, strokes and many more. We have here an overview of some of the different kinds of brain disorders in this article. Brain aneurysm treatments and also treatments for neurovascular disorders in India are easily available, partly because these are the most common.
Vascular diseases are any conditions in the blood vessels that are abnormal in any manner. Blood vessels are used by your body to circulate blood through it entirely. The problems that occur in this particular vast network of blood vessels can cause severe disability and even death.
These include ischemic strokes, hemorrhagic strokes, cerebrovascular accidents, transient ischemic attack, brain aneurysm, subdural hematoma, intracerebral hemorrhage, and cerebral edema.
Or ‘Brain Attack’ can occur due to blockage of any blood vessel of the brain (Ischemic stroke) or due to rupture of any blood vessel in the Brain (hemorrhagic stroke). Ischemic stroke is more common. If we diagnose it early within the golden window period then it may be reversible. Mechanical thrombectomy is the most advanced treatment for such condition.
Hemorrhagic stroke can happen due to hypertension or Brain aneurysms, AVMS, dural Arteriovenous fistula or pial arteriovenous fistulas. Intervention or Endovascular management is one of the promising approaches with very high success rates and low complications.
Seizures can be distinguished as changes in the electrical activity of the brain. These changes can have symptoms that are dramatic or noticeable, and sometimes even no symptoms. Seizures can often lead to injuries and can be a sign of some medical condition that is underlying. Epilepsy is a condition that can be characterized by recurring seizures. Head injuries, strokes, and brain infections can also cause epilepsy. Brain AVMs and fistulas can also cause seizures which can be managed endovascularly.
Many people think that as these neurological conditions are highly complex that there is no treatment. But as mentioned before, brain aneurysm treatments and treatments for neurovascular disorders in India are available along with treatments for many other diseases. Some of these can be treated entirely; others that cannot be treated have support with medications and therapy. If you’re looking for an interventional radiologist in Mumbai, Dr Rashmi Saraf is the person to go. She is also the person to go to if you want a neuro interventional surgeon, Endovascular surgeon or interventional Neurologist in Mumbai.
