Ischemic brain disease, cerebrovascular thrombosis and embolism
Ischemic brain disease causes a narrowing or thrombosis of the arteries supplying the it. Ischemic brain disease develops in the background of the primary pathological process in the vessel wall or blockage of an artery embolism. This section deals with thrombosis of cerebral vessels and a variety of pathological causes of their occurrence in a patient.
Embolization of cerebral vessels lead to the same subjective and objective clinical symptoms, as thrombosis. The difference in their symptoms versed in the topic of embolism of arteries of neck and brain.
Types of thrombosis and embolism in ischemic brain disease:
- Atherosclerotic thrombosis
- Atherothrombotic occlusion of internal carotid artery
- Asymptomatic carotid bifurcation stenosis with noise
- Atherothrombotic occlusion of vertebrobasilar and posterior cerebral arteries
- Atherothrombotic occlusion of posterior cerebral artery
- Atherothrombotic occlusion of vertebral and posterior inferior cerebellar arteries (PICA)
- Atherothrombotic occlusion of basilar artery
- Small-vessel stroke (lacunar infarction)
- Other causes of ischemic stroke (cerebral infarction)
- Cerebral embolism
