• A current hypothesis as to one cause of transient global amnesia—a dramatic sudden temporary near-total loss of short-term memory—is that it may be due to venous congestion of the brain, leading to ischemia of structures, such as the hippocampus, that are involved with memory.

  • Despite much research, the causes remain unclear but include repetitive physical trauma, ischemia (restriction of blood flow), hereditary and endocrine factors, avascular necrosis (loss of blood flow), rapid growth, deficiencies and imbalances in the ratio of calcium to phosphorus, and anomalies of bone formation.

  • Terlipressin is a vasopressin analogue that has been found in one large study to be useful for improving renal function in patients with hepatorenal syndrome with a lesser incidence of ischemia.

  • The 1980s saw the introduction of triple H therapy as a treatment for delayed ischemia due to vasospasm, and trials with nimodipine in an attempt to prevent this complication.
