Arterial blood pressure can be influenced through several main regulatory systems located in different organs and tissues: brain (mainly in brainstem), heart (ventricles), large and small vessels (such as aorta and mesentery artery), and kidney (juxtaglomerular apparatus).
Auditory brainstem implant procedures are usually performed on adults with tumours in their cochlear nerves.
The cABR onset is analogous to wave V of the brainstem's response to a click stimulus, but the cABR has potentially greater diagnostic sensitivity for certain clinical populations.
Among the objective tests, the most commonly used test for this purpose is auditory brainstem response (ABR).2 Although ABR is well established and time tested objective audiological test for early identification of hearing loss but it provides limited frequency specific information.3 Early auditory rehabilitation whether by modern hearing aids or by cochlear implants depends strongly on frequency specific hearing threshold information.4 To overcome this limitation of ABR, a relatively new audiological investigation is gaining popularity in clinical audiological practice which can provide detailed frequency specific thresholds information.
A decreased speech understanding, an increased pure tone audiometry (PTA) threshold, an abnormal acoustic reflex threshold, and an abnormal auditory brainstem response (ABR) are some of the common findings of MS with symptoms of hearing problems [4].
Brainstem lesions causing hearing loss are almost always detected in the brain MRI.
Baseline data recorded when patients were admitted to the NCU included age, gender, stroke history and type of stroke (ischemic or hemorrhagic), and brain damage locations (left-hemisphere, right-hemisphere, and brainstem or cerebella).
The left tumour was significantly larger at the time and started to compress on her brainstem; hence it was removed in 1994.
In this case report, we present the radiological and ophthalmologic findings of a patient with MLF infarction and oculomotor paresis in the pons of the brainstem.
Brainstem injury due to ischemia, inflammation, or trauma can result in acquired central hypoventilation syndrome (ACHS).
Central alveolar hypoventilation (CAH) disorders arise from improper signal integration of the central respiratory drive center in the lower brainstem, which can be due to congenital or acquired neurologic dysfunction.
