Exploiting the doctor’s medical history from the family’s side, Mrs. TV had a history of high blood pressure but did not adhere to treatment. 3 days ago, she was sitting at home singing karaoke when she suddenly had a headache and dizziness when she raised her voice. The family took them to a local hospital for treatment but did not improve, so they continued to transfer to SIS Hospital in a state of headache, vomiting a lot.
The doctors examined and took a CT scan to find the cause, and found that the patient had a subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a ruptured brain aneurysm. After consultation, the team decided to perform emergency surgery for the patient.
Doctor Nguyen Quang Hung, Head of Neurosurgery Unit, directly operated on the patient shared: “The patient was lucky, when the ruptured blood vessel had too thick atheroma, it temporarily stopped the bleeding. prolonging life. We surgically clamped the neck of the aneurysm to stop the bleeding while removing the hematoma that had drained around the aneurysm and preserving the nearby blood vessels.”
After the surgery, the patient’s health is recovering well, fortunately she is not paralyzed
After 5 days of surgery, the patient’s health was stable, recovered well, less headache, no weakness. Passing the “death door”, she happily confided: “I stay at home to take care of my sick husband, my husband also likes to sing, so he asked me to sing to relieve his sadness. I’m passionate, so I sign up for a musical performance at every party. That day, I was singing old songs, but while I was singing, I heard a popping sound in my head like beating a desiccated coconut, then my face darkened.
According to Dr. Hung, the patient’s aneurysm may have appeared about 1 year ago because the size of the aneurysm is very large. When the patient tries to raise his voice when singing at the climax, the blood pressure increases, the blood flow increases too much beyond the limits of the aneurysm, causing the aneurysm to burst.
Through the above case, the doctor recommends that middle-aged patients with hypertension, headache, drooping eyelids, stiff neck… should be screened for cerebral aneurysms at least once by MRI, which is optimal. is MRI 3 Tesla.
