Can ischemic small vessel disease cause gliosis? How would ischemic small vessel disease be treated in a minimal area of white matter in the brain?

Can ischemic small vessel disease cause gliosis?  How would ischemic small vessel disease be treated in a minimal area of white matter in the brain?

Yes.: White matter changes frequently seen on brain MRI are the result of chronic small vessel ischemic disaease and it is the resulting small focus of gliosis that shows on the MRI imaging. Treating your underlying cardiovascular heath is key, not the MRI finding. ...Read more

Brain cell injury: It means you may need more tests 'gliosis: a process leading to scars in the central nervous system that involves the production of a dense fibrous network of neuroglia (supporting cells) in areas of damage. Gliosis is a prominent feature of many diseases of the central nervous system, including multiple sclerosis and stroke. After a stroke, neurons die and disappear with replacement gliosis.'. ...Read more
