Hearing loss

Hearing loss that occurs gradually with age (presbycusis) is common, affecting up to half of all people over the age of 75 in developed countries.  The main factors contributing to hearing loss are believed to be long-term exposure to loud noises and an inherited predisposition to hearing loss.  Although the damage associated with hearing loss can not be reversed, there are many options for dealing with this condition, depending on what part of the ear has been damaged.

Intracranial hematoma

Intracranial hematomas are serious and potentially life-threatening conditions caused by the rupturing of a blood vessel either within the brain or between the skull and brain. Blood then accumulates at the site of the rupture and presses against the brain. This can lead to various symptoms depending on the location and severity of the intracranial hematoma. Intracranial hematomas are often caused by blows to the skull or a sudden, jolting stop of the head. Even if injuries to the head appear minor, they should be reported to a doctor as intracranial hematomas often require immediate medical attention. Treatment of an intracranial hematoma can require surgery to remove the accumulated blood.
