June 3, 2012

"Most likely a small branch of the facial nerve is injured. He probably hit himself pretty hard and he damaged a nerve," says Dr. Dexter Sun, a top neurologist at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Cornell in New York City. As for why he passed out: "It's a combination of the concussion plus exhaustion and stress from travelling and performing," says Dr. Sun. "He could also be dehydrated from travelling. Justin most likely damaged the seventh of the cranial nerves. He needs to do two things: see a neurologist and have an MRI to assess his concussion and REST!"

The family, friends and all of America received wonderful news just a few minutes ago when Dr.Peter Rhee, who is treating Congresswoman Giffords, at the University of Arizona Medical Center, told reporters that she was “100 percent likely to survive”. However, he still remains uncertain as to whether she will have a 100 per cent recovery of all her skills.

What are the problems she could face? “It will depend on whether the bullet went through any critical areas on the left side of her brain, the language center or the area that controls movement on the right side of the body,” explains Dr. Dexter Sun, a neurologist at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Cornell University Weill Medical College.” If the bullet didn’t hit these areas then the effect could be minimal. But even if the bullet hit her language center, it will be difficult to asses until she’s no longer sedated or inubated using a breathing tube. She can’t undergo tests until then“, says Dr.Dexter.
