NCCT Head Findings in Patients of Chronic Renal Failure with Altered Sensorium: A Prospective Study in a Tertiary Care Centre

July 5, 2021 Medicine and Medical Science 0

Introduction: The central nervous system (CNS) is commonly impacted in uremics and has been studied in a variety of ways in these individuals. From time to time, various theories about the origin of central nervous system tract lesions in chronic renal failure have been proposed. Urea has been implicated in the majority of studies. Because of their advanced age and a high prevalence of stroke and cardiovascular risk factors, hemodialysis patients are at a high risk of cognitive impairment. The purpose of this study is to look into the NCCT Head findings in patients with chronic renal failure. Materials and Methods: From November 2016 to October 2017, a one-year prospective study was conducted at GMC, Jammu, a tertiary care center. Our study included 64 patients, 36 of whom were males (56.25 percent) and 28 of whom were females (43.75 percent ). The patients’ ages ranged from 18 to 60. Results: In our study, 8 patients (12.5 percent) had ischaemic stroke, 6 patients (9.37 percent) had hemorrhagic stroke, and 2 patients (3.12 percent) had both lesions.

Conclusion: Neurologic symptoms have been frequently documented in patients with chronic renal failure. The majority of CKD patients have moderate to severe chronic cognitive impairment, which goes undiagnosed.
