In a duodenal ulcer, it can be relieved by eating. In a duodenal ulcer, there is bleeding in the stool called melena. In gastric ulcers, there is blood when the patient vomits called hematemesis. In gastric ulcers, pain occurs 1-2 hours after eating. In duodenal ulcers, pain occurs 3-4 hours after eating. 7 A 42-year-old female patient suffers from micronodular cryptogenic cirrhosis.

 Subarachnoid haemorrhage

Subarachnoid haemorrhage

Rupture of a berry aneurysm at the bifurcation of large arteries at the base of the brain leads to escape of blood under pressure into the subarachnoid space, effectively coating the brain surface with clotted blood. Cerebral blood flow and brain glucose are reduced. Small ischemic lesions produced by microemboli set off recurring waves of CSDs, which, due to dysfunction of neurovascular coupling, are associated with paradoxical vasoconstriction and tissue hypoxia. These ischemic CSDs, which impose additional metabolic stress on the energy-depleted brain, worsen oxygen and glucose deficits, promoting the expansion of the lesions.
