gliotic brain herniation...what does this mean?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Just looking at my MRI scan results and it says gliotic brain herniation but i just can't find anything to explain what this is. This is what they found months back and had surgery to repair whatever they found. Also wondering what effects this can have even after repair just from the trauma to the brain. Does it effect the central nervous system?
