They can lead to severe headaches, confusion, and stroke-like symptoms. They may lead to bleeding into the surrounding brain tissues. The clot can be triggered by infections of the ear, face, or neck, by estrogen use and pregnancy, and can be caused by inherited and acquired clotting disorders. The diagnosis is, unfortunately, sometimes initially missed by health care professionals, as a plain CT or MRI of the head can be normal. It takes special MRI or CT scans (called MR venogram or CT venogram) to make the diagnosis. Blood thinners (heparins) are typically initially given, even if there is already bleeding into the brain at the site of the clot. Subsequently, warfarin is given for varying lengths of time, depending on the trigger of the clot: for 3-6 months if there was a clear temporary trigger (infection, estrogens), 6-12 months if the clot was unexplained and no strong clotting disorder has been found, long-term, if a strong clotting disorder is present. Per Igor Eronko, the Rangers are set to sign Ilya Kovalchuk to a 2-3 year deal. This comes a little out of left field, as there was always chatter but nothing concrete regarding Kovalchuk and the Rangers. The soon-to-be 35 year old winger has played the last five years in the KHL after finding a way out of his disastrous contract in New Jersey. Before going to the KHL, Kovalchuk was a legit sniper in the NHL, averaging a point a game with one of the more lethal wrist shots we’ve seen. At 35 he’s unlikely going to be that dominant, but there’s a chance he will still be useful. I hate the idea of a multi-year deal for a 35 year old though. If the Blueshirts were looking for a fast turnaround, then trading Ryan Mc Donagh was silly. The Rangers are trying to pull a Yankees, and that probably won’t go as well as it did in the Bronx. Unless the plan is to spin him at next year’s deadline, I’m not a fan.
