Infarct Right Ganglio Capsular Region
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

Friend has had cerebellar infarction, MRI is: pundate hyperintense area in bilateral inf. Cereblr region, hypointense on t1, hyperintense on t2, retriction on div I s/o aorta enfarct. Best treatment?
All chronic: Infarct means death of tissue secondary to obstructed blood flow. Lacunar is a tiny area. Once event has occurred, the nerve cells do not grow back locally, but compensatory pathways arise. Key lesson, therapies can prevent stroke events. Talk to your doctor.

Old stroke: Chronic implies longer than 3-6 months. Brain infarct is a stroke, due to blood vessel obstruction. Risk factors might include hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, and the presence of an old stroke predicts future stroke risk. So, likely best to start an anti-platelet drug. Discuss this with your doc. Read more
Spinal infarct: Spinal cord infarct is the same as a stroke- sudden decreased blood flow within part of the CNS (central nervous system). Compared to the brain, the spinal cord receives much less blood flow, but like the brain, it can suffer from a stroke. A spinal cord infarct is less common than a (cerebral) stroke. It also tends to affect the legs, as motor supply to the legs must pass through the spinal c. Read more
Splenic infarct: It's possible but until a hematologist does the work up and gives you the clean bill of health that it was just a coincidence, I would not just right it off. Last time I looked, this is not a terribly common thing to happen unless there is trauma and the spleen is an incredibly important organ. Read more
Subacute infarct: What that means is that at some time in the recent past, there was an interruption of the blood supply to that part of the kidney. Read more

57 y/o female lacunar infarct 2009. Would that make my memory (short term) be affected? Its really getting bad. Thank u.
Highly unlikely: Embolic strokes are considered to be the typical forms of stroke or hemorrhagic type as well that place a person at highest risk for post stroke dementia like consequences. Small vessel ischemic type, since 2009?, and a single event? Nah.....but that doesn't mean you shouldn't get a workup of some sort because there may be an explanation. Read more
What are the most common underlying conditions that would cause a splenic infarct? And how long do they take to show up?
Control risk factors: Lacunar infarcts are a type of ischemic stroke that is often due to risk factors for stroke including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes as well as lifestyle changes such as stopping smoking, exercise, and a healthy diet. The ataxia refers to a specific type of lacunar infarct and the associated symptoms of incoordination. It is best to seek full evaluation by a stroke neurologist. Read more
Many small strokes: Multiple small "lacunar infarcts" can add up and create a picture very similar to alzheimers, and result in significant cognitive problems. Need to treat the dementia with meds, but also prevent further strokes with meds. Complex, so need fairly thorough evaluation and treatments. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thorough Evaluation: Tests determine whether other medical problems could be causing dementia, such as anemia, brain tumor, chronic infection, drug and medication intoxication, severe depression, thyroid disease, vitamin deficiency. Neuropsychological testing is helpful to find out what parts of thinking have been affected, and to guide other tests. Tests also can include a head ct scan and MRI of the brain.
