Development Of The Baby 7 Months Postoperatively On The Head?
Night, so this is how my child at the age of 1 month underwent a blood clotting operation on his right head, thank God the operation went smoothly, and now my child is 7 months old but there is no intelligence. I want to ask what the heck is causing my child no intelligence yet? Is there any connection with the operation?
Blood clots in the brain indicate previous bleeding. Brain hemorrhage in infants can be caused due to APCD (acquired prothrombin complex deficiency) - vitamin K deficiency, head trauma (falls, bumps, labor), blood clotting abnormalities, blood vessel abnormalities and so on. When blood clots form in the brain, the volume of intracranial (in the skull) will increase, while the volume of the skull is limited. This causes an increase in intracranial pressure.
Increased intracranial pressure in infants can be characterized by:
Loss of consciousness
Motor disorders on one side of the body
The presence of bleeding in the brain also indicates that there are parts of the brain tissue that do not get circulation for a while. If this happens long enough it will cause permanent damage, depending on which area of the brain is affected. At the age of 7 months children are expected to be able to do the following:
Uphold your back
Insert objects in your mouth
Moving the head towards an object or sound, etc.
There are variations in the development of the child, but if you really cannot do any of the above, you should take the child to be examined for growth and development to a pediatrician. Past medical history, such as blood clots in the head, can more or less affect its current development. However, there are some other things that can cause growth and development disorders in children, so that other examinations are needed to determine the main cause. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
