Medical Malpractice

The brain is arguably the most important organ in the human body, and any form of trauma visited upon it can cause it to swell, causing complications that can have an effect on the functioning of the entire body. Certain conditions such as traumatic brain injury, a stroke or hematoma or brain bleed can increase intercranial pressure which can then cause the brain to swell and move from areas of high pressure to those of low pressure, ending up in something called a brain hernia. Brain swelling can spell doom for nerves and vessels, some of which can be permanently damaged. Brain swelling is also known as “water on the brain” or hydrocephalus, and it must be treated as a matter of urgency if a patient is to make it out alive. In addition, regular monitoring of at-risk patients should be done in order to prevent brain herniation, so if the same happens, suspect physician negligence. If you or a loved one developed brain herniation, you may be entitled to money damages as well as closure and justice, and we’re here to help with that.

Why Does Brain Swelling Happen?

Brain herniation or hydrocephalus is caused by the accumulation of CSF or cerebrospinal fluid. The ventricles, or spaces between the folds of the brain may widen, and the head may start to swell. Untreated or undiagnosed strokes, traumatic brain injury, a cerebral infection such as tetanus or meningitis, and slip and fall injury can all cause brain herniation.

Treatment of Brain Swelling

The goal when it comes to the treatment of brain herniation is to let off any accumulated pressure via surgery to remove part of the skull, or providing the patient with medication that prevents or alleviates swelling such as mannitol.
