Neurology in Mexico at Hispano Americano Hospital / Mexicali Mexico
Neurology in Mexicali Mexico at Hispano Americano Hospital. Neurology is the medical specialty that treats disorders of the nervous system. It is specifically concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of all diseases involving the central nervous system, peripheral nervous system and autonomic nervous system, including their wrappers (bone), blood vessels and tissues such as muscle.
The comprehensive team of neurologists and neurophysiologists at Hispano Americano Hospital is the most experienced in the region for the treatment of several neurological disorders.
Multiple Sclerosis Video Translation
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the myelin or white matter of the brain and spinal cord, causing the appearance of sclerotic plaques that prevent normal operation of these nerve fibers.
To make the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, we need neuroradiology studies consisting of MRI contrast.
Depending on its stage is what we expect to see: demyelinating lesions characterized by what we call “black holes”, also thinning of the corpus callosum, periventricular injuries and some other complex injuries.
Another very important study neurophysiologists do is to determine the alteration by visual potential. Sometimes the patient has a history of slight loss of vision. But with the results potential alteration has in visual latency, that translates into a demyelination problem we or auditory potential that is not part of the diagnostic criteria but is important for the changes that the patient might have.
This is apart from the laboratory studies that would discard autoimmune diseases.
Multiple sclerosis treatment currently depends heavily on the attachment that the patient has and the body’s response to treatment. Unfortunately there is no treatment to cure the disease, treatment modifies it to expect a better quality of life for the patient, which is the ultimate purpose of every member of the team that treats him.
