Patient information films

You can learn more about the different diseases in our patient information films on pulse-synchronous tinnitus, stroke, vascular AV malformation and intracranial aneurysm.

Pulse-synchronous tinnitus

Who ha Who hasn’t experienced an annoying whistling or whooshing in the ears. Many people suffer from debilitating noises that disrupt their sleep and which can be heard only by the person who experiences it. It presents itself as a persistent whistling sound in the majority of cases. In rare cases, the noise is not smooth but is rhythmic and in sync with the pulse.


The experienced medical team at the centre for diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology uses the latest methods to treat you for pulse-synchronous tinnitus.

Stroke

In 80% of all cases, mini-strokes and acute strokes are caused by a blood clot and have a high incidence rate in Europe. Stroke is the leading cause of permanent disability and inability to work, and the third leading cause of death.

Vascular anamolies AV malformation

Vascular anomalies to the central nervous system are associated with abnormally enlarged blood vessels, found either in the head or in the spinal canal, and which do not take part in tissue supply.

 

This can lead to vascular leakage (tears or rupture) with bleeding into various parts of the central nervous system and the surrounding cavities, or it may result in disruption of normal brain circulation (stroke, paralysis) or irritation of the brain tissue (epilepsy).

Intracranial aneurysm

An aneurysm is an abnormally enlarged blood vessel caused by a weakness in the cerebral artery. As a result of high blood pressure, the wall can expand and the aneurysm may balloon or even rupture, which occurs in approximately 10 out of 100,000 people a year.

 

The experienced medical team at the centre for diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology uses the latest methods to evaluate the risk of rupture and where necessary treat an aneurysm.
