MRI vertebrobasilar hypoplasia right side theres robust flow void anastomosing the basilar artery w cavernous portion of internal carotid artery/mean?
Normal variant: The arteries at the base of the brain can course in several different patterns but ultimately get the job done, that is, supply brain tissue. Your pattern is like your fingerprint. Some more unusual patterns have an increased association with aneurysms, but this would have likely been described if present and vertebro basilar hypoplasia, as in the picture, is pretty common. ...Read more
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from capillaries back to the heart (body to right heart; ...Read more
Arteriosclerotic internal carotid & vertebro basilar arteries predominantly the left vertebrobasilar segment appearing tortuous with slight prominence?
Basilar for brainstm: The top of the basilar artery is like a fork in the road. When a blood clot affects this area, small strokes can occur in the brainstem, causing numbness, weakness, trouble talking, eye symptoms, or impaired consciousness, and sometimes, more than one stroke occurs at the same time. ...Read more

Chronic radial artery occlusion. Pain in hand arterial doppler shows interosseos artery enlarged. Ulnar artery responsbile for profusion. Advice?
Basilar artery: Basilar artery is formed by the confluence of the vertebral arteries. Vertebral arteries are branches off the subclavian arteries. They supply the posterior aspect of brain and flow into the circle of willis. Vertebral occlusions can occur due to atherosclerotic disease and dissection from trauma. ...Read more
2 things: Carotid artery stenosis means narrowing of the artery. Stroke is death or damage to brain due to circulatory issues. Many strokes (approx 1/3rd) are due to carotid artery disease. Although frequently connected, they are not the same. Many strokes occur without carotid stenosis. Many carotids are completely occluded (slowly) without resultant strokes. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
The 2 vertebral arteries arise from the left and right subclavian arteries and supply the brainstem and cerebellum. Dissection is rare (2.5/100, 000), affect women to men 3:1 and can cause stroke in people
Medullary compressio: This is not an uncommon finding in people over 65 on mri scan. It is significant if you are having symptoms such as dizziness, black out spells or blood pressure fluctuations. It can frequently such be followed by a neurologic professional, but should generally be evaluated by someone with experience in cerebrovascular disease. ...Read more
Arterial tear: An uncommon cause of stroke, but among younger patients, it is one of the most common. Sometimes spontaneously, sometimes after an activity that involves sudden torsion to the neck, a tear may form along the three layers that constitute the arterial wall. This tear causes turbulent blood flow and predisposes to clot formation. These clots can then cause a stroke by blocking important arteries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Elderly Hypertensive: Carotid stenosis usually occurs secondary to longstanding atherosclerosis. Risk factors include high blood pressure, diabetes, and coronary artery disease. It takes time for atherosclerotic plaques to develop, so most patients with carotid artery stenosis are older adults. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
