intracranial hemorrhage vs. intraventricular hemorrhage
Can you please explain to me the difference between a ICH and an IVH, besides the obvious locations of the bleed.  My son had a grade IV, ICH due to low platelets.  I believe that it was in the lower left temporal (sp?) portion of the brain that affects speech.  How does a bleed into the tissue affect a person differently than a bleed into the vent., or does it?
Thank you

Dear Ms. Chastain:

Sorry to hear about your son.  A grade IV intraventricular bleed means that your son not only bleed into the ventricle, but the blood also invaded the brain matter itself.  These types of bleed happen usually in premature infants due to instability of the germinal matrix.  There really is no such entity as a grade IV intracranial bleed.  There are small or large bleeds into the brain matter, that sometimes will also bleed into the ventricular system.  These types of bleeds happen more frequently in adults but as your son can happen in coagulation problems.  This latter type of bleed is likely what your son had.  The blood usually is very toxic to brain matter (neurons) and there is likely damage to the neurons in the area of the bleed.  Once the blood resolves, the by-products can also irriatate the brain and cause problems, seizures etc.

I hope this helps.

Sincerely,

CCF Neuro MD

Dear CCF Neuro MD,

I just read your response regarding brain bleeds.

MD-obstetricians indirectly admit they are causing brain bleeds by using semisitting and dorsal delivery.

CCF Neuro MD, I urge you to look at my information and point out any flaws.

If you see no flaws, please join me in warning MDs (and women) about the obvious biomechanical hazards of using semisitting and dorsal delivery.

If you do see flaws, please point them out publicly or privately.

I will post your reply to the usenet.

Please include your name when responding.

Dear Dr. Gastaldo:

Your interest in brain hemorrhage is good and I applaud your concern.  However, it is not my place to comment on matters that I really do not know that well, like delivery issues.  I am not an OB and therefore would not be as qualified to make any sweeping statements concerning specific techniques (which I know little about).  I am sorry I can't help you in this matter, but I would be stepping out of my area.

Sincerely,

CCF Neuro MD

Recently my aunt died from a brain stroke.  She complained of a severe headache for about a week.  She also complained of having neck pain, like someone was pinching the back of her neck.  She collapsed at the house and never regained consciousness.  She vomited also.  What was the cause of the vomiting and is it possible that she died instanly or did she slowly loose consciousness?  Where can I find more information on the cause of her death?

Thank You!

Dear Romona Johnson:

I can't tell you for sure, what did the MRI show?  It sounds like she had a bleeding episode from the vessels in the back of her head.  You might try the library and look up subarchnoid hemorrhage.

Dear Todd D. Gastaldo, D.C.

Thank you for the kind words "chicken", of which you do not even know me to call me names.  Women have been delivering babies without doctors for centuries.  Those using doctors and in the "western" techniques of our country do not have intercranial bleeding issues, in the vast majority of deliveries. Since I see the CNS problems from problem deliveries, I should know.  Most of the problems are related to infections from the mother, drugs from rec drug use, genetic abnormalities, etc.  The techniques in delivering a baby are generally not the problem.
