Frontal Lobe Infarct
Type of stroke: Strokes are due to either blood clot blocking a blood vessel, called an ischemic infarct, or due to bleeding, called a hemorrhagic stroke. An infarct in the left frontal lobe is due to a blood clot that has occluded or blocked one of the main vessel supplying blood to the left frontal part or lobe of the brain with symptoms involves language disturbance and right sided weakness in face/arm//leg. ...Read more
When the blood supply of a tissue is compromised by whatever mechanism, the tissue will stop working and if blood flow is not restored, the tissue will eventually die ("infarct", both verb and noun). The clinical picture that runs with development of an infarct ("heart attack"; ...Read more

Brain infarct: You need to follow your doctors instuctions very carefully, and take medication and treatment as it is prescribed. Get regular follow up appointments. ...Read more
My CT scan result shows - right frontal lobe subcortical white matter tiny chronic infarct- and mild cerebral atrophic changes. ?
My uncle is currently in ICU and his MRI suggests that he has tiny acute infarcts involving left cerebeller hemisphere, left temporal lobe and right deep frontal periventricular region. Other findings suggest acute haemotoma in left caudate nucleus, chron

My mother, 84, MRI scan> subacute infarcts, bilateral frontal lobes, small vessel ischematic changes inthe basal ganglia, periventricular white matter?
Small vessel disease: Mri in a 84 years old lady showing infarcts and small vessel disease means she is having ministrokes. That is very common in that age group. If she has heart disease or carotid artery disease or risk factors like high BP or diabetes or high lipids they should be controlled and she should follow up with her dr who can give her further recommendations. ...Read more
I recently had a CT scan of the brain and i want to know what do these findings actually mean? The findings are as follows: focus of decreased density in the sub-cortical white matter of the left frontal lobe, per-ventricular ischemic change. No mass or m
Your : Your ct findings are suggestive of cerebrovascular disease, which is usually caused by atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Smokers and people with uncontrolled hypertension or high cholesterol are commonly affected by cerebrovascular disease. The areas around your brain's ventricles (these are simply hollow chambers within your brain) are particularly susceptible to the reduced blood flow caused by this condition -- hence the "peri-ventricular ischemic change." the area of decreased density in your left frontal lobe could be due to a "lacunar infarct" (i.e., a small stroke), which is another common complication of cerebrovascular disease. Your doctor can help you sort through the potential causes of (and treatment for) cerebrovascular disease. If you're a smoker, quitting would be of great benefit to your brain. I hope things go well for you! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Regular exercise?: Good morning, that is an interesting question, as it echoes the feeling of many of us! there are a lot of claims with no definite proof of results. Aging lead to decline in frontal lobe functions, one the reason being inactivity, both physically and mentally as we age. The only proven technique to improve is to engage in physical exercise and continue to learn new things to stimulate your brain. ...Read more
Yes: As we get older, the cells, tissues and organs in our body shrink/atrophy, degenerate/decrease in its functional capacity and it's part of the natural cycle of the human body. When the brain shrinks, it doesn't grow back. Those people who are endowed with good genes have a longer life span and have a delay in these processes. Google online for images of brain atrophy.
