What is acute coronary syndrome myocardial infarction?

What is acute coronary syndrome myocardial infarction?

Continuum: Both are a result of inadequate blood supply to the heart muscle. Acute coronary syndrome means that the imbalance is sufficient to cause symptoms that prompt aggressive intervention, but may not result in permanent heart damage; a myocardial infarction implies that overt heart damage has occurred, hence positive markers of tissue damage. ...Read more

What does coronary occlusion acute, arterio-sclerotic cardio vascular disease and acute myocardial infarction mean?

What does coronary occlusion acute, arterio-sclerotic cardio vascular disease and acute myocardial infarction mean?

the same thing: Arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease means blockages in the coronary arteries. The manifestation of coronary artery blockage is a heart attack. When this happen suddenly, we say it is acute. ...Read more

What is unspecified transient cerebral ischemia?

What is unspecified transient cerebral ischemia?

See below: Am not familiar with "unspecified", but transient cerebral ischemia means diminished blood flow to a part of the brain causing clinical symptoms. Since this can be the first sign of an impending stroke, this needs to be fully evaluated and medication started for prevention. See a neurologist and get this fully addressed. ...Read more

What is the difference between acute ischemic stroke and ischemic stroke?

What is the difference between acute ischemic stroke and ischemic stroke?

Acute - Sudden Onset: Acute stroke refers to a stroke that has just occurred. Ischemic stroke may be hyperacute (based on sudden onset neurological symptoms and imaging findings, MRI and perfusion study) and potentially treatable, acute (1-7 d), subacute (7-21 d), and chronic (>21 d). ...Read more

Is cerebral ischemia reversible?

Is cerebral ischemia reversible?

Yes : Transient ischemic attack is cerebral ischemia that results in transient neurologic dysfunction without acute infarction. Symptoms last for minutes to 24 hr and is transient and therefore reversible. ...Read more

Microvascular chronic ischemic in brain can affect memory?

Microvascular chronic ischemic in brain can affect memory?

Sure can: We term multiple small strokes, lacunar infarcts, and these can mount up and produce "etat lacunaire", or full blown vascular dementia. Here, the job involves prevention with an appropriate stroke anti platelet, or anti-coagulant approach. ...Read more

Is ischemic microvascular brain disease related to stroke?

Is ischemic microvascular brain disease related to stroke?

See comments: Are you referring to radiology reading of an MRI of brain? In elderly, often thought that white matter lesions are associated with "microvascular angiopathy", sign of potential atherosclerosis. Maybe potential stroke risk, especially lacunar infarct, but not straightforwards. Your physician needs to assess stroke risk. Spots more likely from migraine or prior injury. ...Read more

What is transient cerebral ischemia?

What is transient cerebral ischemia?

You mean a TIA: Transient ischemic attack (TIA) is often called a "mini-stroke, " and is considered a harbinger for a full-blown stroke. It can occur as a result of a narrowing in the carotid arteries. Unlike a stroke, TIA symptoms last anywhere from 15 minutes to 24 hours. Typically can present with blindness to one eye, paralysis, or slurred speech. You should see a vascular surgeon immediately. ...Read more

Does ischemia or thrombosis cause myocardial infarction?

Does ischemia or thrombosis cause  myocardial infarction?

Ischemia vs MI: Cholesterol plaque develops in the heart arteries. Progressive narrowing - usually greater than 70% - can lead to lack of blood flow to the heart muscle during exercise or rest and causes angina or ischemia. Myocardial infarction is due to the rupture of a plaque which causes a blood clot to form (thrombosis) in the artery blocking blood flow to that area of the heart muscle which then dies. ...Read more

Is induced cerebral hypoperfusion reversible?

Is induced cerebral hypoperfusion reversible?

Maybe. Probably.: Cerebral hypoperfusion literally means "not enough blood to the brain." so whether or not it is reversible depends on the cause for the decreased blood flow, and "induced" typically refers to intentionally causing this, such as for brain surgery or diagnostically. If this is the case, then yes, it's reversible. You should ask your doctor for more information rather than "medspeak.". ...Read more

Not likely: The pons is one of the most frequent locations for lacunar infarcts in hypertensive and/or diabetic patients. In the context of a motor vehicle accident, this sound like a preexisting condition. ...Read more

What is chronic microvascular ischemic disease?

What is chronic microvascular ischemic disease?

Parse the words: Chronic = long-standing. Microvascular = small blood vessel. Ischemic = insufficient blood flow. Technically such a condition can affect any organ in the body but this condition gets most attention due to neurologic involvement. Certain genetic & environmental factors contribute to this condition--that is, there is more than one cause. ...Read more
