He had a CT scan to rule out another hematoma. These are the notes and the comparisons with his last CT scan:
1. Increased prominent supratentorial small vessel ischemic change with small progressive lacunar infarcts in the basal ganglia, thalami, and internal capsules.
2. Progressive localized chronic infarcts of the inferior margin of the right temporal lobe.
2. Small cortical infarct of the posterior margin of the right parietal lobe, equivocally increased.
4. Progressive prominent ventriculomegaly. The cortical sulci are larger as well so cortical atrophy is favored over hydrocephalus.
5. Persistent stigmata of extensive right craniotomy.
6. No intracranial hemorrhage.
Can you put this into everyday language? And would these findings explain his deterioration?
His neurologist was concerned about bleeding and did not seem as concerned about these other changes.
