ischemic strokes could be focal or global
By Neuer S. on 16. April 2017 for Ischemic Stroke: Characteristics

very clear explanation and easy to understand great examples and easy to follow

Well described but omission of Chronic Subdural haematoma
By Hamed S. on 21. March 2017 for Epidural Hematoma (Extradural Haematoma)

Good talk on the topic but could be improved by discussion management and when you may consider surgical evacuation vs watch and wait. Also no mention of chronic subdural haematoma.

I need of improvement
By Hamed S. on 21. March 2017 for Increased Intracranial Pressure (ICP)

I'm not sure if this topic will be covered in neurosurg but serious detail lacking. First of all no definition what a raised ICP is and how best to diagnose. No clear explanation of the underlying cause ie mass effect (tumour, abscess), vascular (hypoxia, hypercapnia, venous flow obstruction), hydrocephalus (obstructive vs none), pseudotumor cerebri. It would have been useful to discuss shunts in the treatment as well and when you may consider inserting them

Comprehensive and suggestions for the future
By Hamed S. on 21. March 2017 for Dementia

Again a really comprehensive coverage of this topic. I would like in the future for a discussion regarding the use of mini-mental state examinations as it is an important part of the work up of a patient with memory impairment. I was surprised not hear about the cautious use of neuroleptics in Lewy body dementia. I would have like to learn more about the clinical utility of neuroimaging and when you would use them? Finally, It would have also been good to tackle prion disease
