Salt Lake City Edema Attorneys
Seeking the Relief You Deserve for Your Brain Injury
One of the most serious consequences of severe head trauma, which sometimes occurs in car and trucking accidents, falls on dangerous property or other catastrophic accidents, is the occurrence or risk of brain swelling. In medical terms, brain swelling due to the accumulation of fluid is called edema. Although brain edema is not always obvious and can be difficult to diagnose, the risks associated with the intracranial pressure that edema creates should be well known to medical professionals. Constant monitoring of an edema patient—with constant readiness to perform surgery if necessary—is essential.

Brain Injuries & Edema
In addition to traumatic brain injury, brain edema can result from stroke, infection or various other causes. Symptoms vary across a wide range of types and severity, from headaches and vision loss, to memory loss to seizures or loss of consciousness. Treatments used to relieve dangerous intracranial pressure and prevent permanent brain damage or death include medication and surgery to drain the fluid or repair its source.
