Neurology

Neurology is a science concerning diagnosis and medical treatment of brain, neural system and muscle diseases. With the developments in medicine, Neurology has become a science which is limited and closed and divided into sun disciplines such as movement disorders, cerebrovascular disorders, dotages, insomnia. It forwards wits serious laboratory studies and other medicine branches coordinately. It could be expressed that “neurology” is the most progressing medicine branches of recent years.        

 

DISEASE GROUPS DIAGNOSED AND TREATED AT NEUROLOGY DEPARTMENTS
Main neurological conditions
  • Headaches and other craniofacial aches 
  • Paralysis (cerebrovascular diseases- cerebrovascular obstructions, bleedings)
  • Epilepsy and other seizure disorders (epilepsy and other faints)
  • Dimential syndromes (Alzheimer disease etc)
  • Insomnias (sleep laboratory workings)
  • Moving disorders (Parkinson disease and related disorders)
  • Medulla spinals (spine) diseases 
  • Environmental neurosis (acute and chronic monopoluporopathy)
  • Myasthenia Gravis and other nerve-muscle diseases  
  • Muscle diseases

  • Brain tumors
  • Brain traumas (cranium-cerebral traumas)
  • Coma situation and brain death
  • Delirium crisis and other confessionals disorders  
  • Neural system infections (meningitis, encephalitis, cerebral abscess etc)    

 

Neurologic diagnostic processes
  • Neurological monitoring methods:
  • Punction lomber (PL) and BOS (brain spinal fluid) analyze EMG (electromyography) and neural transmit working 
  • EEG (electroencephalography routine EEG, sleep EEG, whole Night sleep EEG
  • Computed tomography (BT)
  • MRG (magnetic Resonance Monitoring) carotids – vertebral Artery Doppler examination
