İlgi Alanları

Titreme Hastalığı (Esansiyel Tremor) Belirtileri ve Tedavisi

Titreme hastalığı olarak bilinen esansiyel tremör el, kol veya vücudun diğer kısımlarının titremesi ile oluşan bir hastalıktır. Bu hastalıkta yaş ilerledikçe görülme sıklığı artar. Genellikle 10 ile 19 veya 50 ile 59 yaşları arasında daha sık görülür. Titreme hastalığı (esansiyel tremor) dünya çapındaki insanların %1’ini etkilerken, 60 yaş üzeri kişileri ise %5 etkilediği tahmin edilir. Tehlikeli bir hastalık değildir fakat tedavi altına alınmazsa günlük aktivitelere engel olabilir. Birkaç farklı tedavi yolları vardır. Bu tedavi yolları kişiye veya hastalığın durumuna göre tercih edilebilir. Esansiyel tremor yavaş yavaş ilerleyen ve kötüleşen bir hastalıktır. Bu yüzden hastalığın kişinin hayatını bozmaya başlayacağı evreye ulaşması uzun yıllar alabilir.

Parkinson Cerrahisi Nedir?

Beyin Pili Nedir? Beyin Pili Ameliyatı ve Etkileri

Beyin pili nörolojik hastalıkların tedavisinde kullanılan cerrahi müdahaledir. Derin beyin stimülasyonu (DBS) olarak bilinen bu yöntem elektrotların beyin içine yerleştirilmesi ve bir pil cihazının kullanılması ile gerçekleşir. DBS özellikle Parkinson hastalığı başta olmak üzere çeşitli nörolojik hastalıkların semptomlarını kontrol etmede etkili bir seçenek olarak kabul edilir.

Omurilik Tümörü: Nedir, Nedenleri, Belirtileri ve Tedavisi

Vücudun herhangi bir dokusunda veya organında bazı hücrelerin kontrolsüz şekilde üremesi ve büyümesi sonucunda tümörler oluşmaktadır.

Omurga Cerrahisi Nedir?

Omurga, baş ve kuyruk sokumu arasında uzanan ve vücut kütlesinin çok büyük bir kısmını taşıyan kemikler, eklemler ve disklerden oluşan bir köprüdür.

Hidrosefali: Nedir, Nedenleri, Belirtileri, Tanısı ve Tedavisi

Hidrosefali, anne karnı da dahil her yaşta görülebilen bir hastalıktır.

Beyincik sarkması nedir, tanı ve tedavide ne yapılır?

Her yaşta görülebilmesinin nedenini tam olarak bilmesek de tedavisinde hayli yol kat edilmiş durumda.

Beyin ve Sinir Cerrahisi (Nöroşirüji) Nedir? Nöroşirurji Hastalıkları

Halk arasında beyin ve sinir cerrahisi olarak da bilinen nöroşirürji, beyin ve sinir hastalıkları ile ilgilenen bilim dalıdır.

Beyin Tümörü Nedir?

Beyin tümörü, beynin kendi dokusunda yer alan hücrelerin farklılaşarak kontrolsüz bir şekilde çoğalmasıyla ya da vücudun farklı bir yerinde var olan kanser hücrelerinin kan dolaşımı yoluyla beyine ulaşarak bu bölgeye yayılmasıyla oluşan bir hastalıktır.

Beyin Tümörü Belirtileri ve Tedavi Yöntemleri

Beyin tümörleri iyi huylu (benign) ve kötü huylu (malign) olmak üzere iki gruba ayrılıyor.

Beyin Sapı Tümörü Belirtileri, Tanı ve Tedavi Yöntemleri

Beyin sapı anatomik olarak beyin ile omuriliği birbirine bağlar.

Beyin Kanseri: Nedir, Belirtileri, Tanı ve Tedavisi

Beyin kanseri, beyinde ortaya çıkan kötü huylu tümör hücrelerinin hızlı ve kontrolsüz şekilde çoğalması ve büyümesidir. Beyin kanserine neden olan hücreler, kendi kendini yenileme özelliğine sahiptir. Beyin tümörleri, hipofiz ve epifiz bezinde, beyin yüzeyindeki zarda ve sinirlerde ortaya çıkabilir. Vücudun diğer yerlerinde ortaya çıkan ve yayılarak beyni etkileyen ikincil tümörler, beyinde direkt ortaya çıkan birincil beyin tümörlerinden daha yaygındır. En yaygın görülen beyin kanseri vakaları ikincil beyin tümörlerinden kaynaklanır. 2022 yılında dünya genelinde yaşları ortalaması 59 olan 1.900'den fazla kişiye beyin kanseri tanısı konulduğu bilinmektedir.
