Neuro-Surgical Emergencies
Speed is the essential factor in neurosurgical emergencies as the risk of significant brain injury or death increases with time. As these emergencies often progress rapidly, emergency management is essential to minimize further neurological damage. The brain can be injured in many ways, the most common being through direct traumatic brain injury caused by road traffic collisions, falls from height, and assaults. Ischaemic injury is often caused by embolic stroke or haemorrhagic injury from ruptured vascular malformations (e.g. cerebral aneurysms) is also common causes of neurosurgical emergencies. Acute hydrocephalus and infection problems (e.g. abscesses) are other conditions where prompt intervention is required. Similarly, acute spinal injuries can be traumatic, compressive, and infective.
Some main Neuro-Surgical emergencies are:

  • Seizure disorders
  • Head injury
  • Spinal Injury
  • Acute rise of ICP
  • Cerebral hemorrhage
  • Acute pain presentation
