Ischemic White Matter Disease
I also had a CT scan of the brain which showed I had chronic ischemic white matter disease. I am only 43!. Is this too age related? Thank you, Patty
I had a cat scan, showed chronic microvascular ischemic white matter disease. My doctor who ordered the CT looked at it and did not comment. Is MS or other auto immune system possible?
Lack of blood deep : In the brain. This condition is most commonly seen in individuals with one or all of the following: 1. Hypertension 2. Diabetes 3. Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol) 4. Cigarette smoking 5. Family history of stroke of course there are others but these are most important. Please meet with your neurologist to discuss why and what you can do to help your situation.

Arteriosclerosis : You are taking hydrocodone, tramadol & Lyrica for nagging pain plus Ambien for sleep and Buspirone for anxiety. Combination is heavy stuff. Had migraine but not any more? Microvascular disease is the blockage of tiny vessels-arteriosclerosis. These can happen in heart & kidney as well. Check your lipid profile and possible use of statin. For headache & reevaluation of all your meds see neurologist. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Patchy insulation: Chronic means this process has been going on for years in the brain. White matter is the part of the brain where the "communication cables" are, and they are "white" because of myelin insulation. The ventricles are fluid-filled "shock absorber" spaces inside the brain. Ischemic means they have been deprived oxygen, microvascular means in tiny blood vessels. Mini-stroke strips off some insulation. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Mom is 79 brain CT scan: moderate cerebral volume loss, mild widening of the cortical sulci, mild white matter microvasc. Ischemic disease serious?
What is the meaning of chronic ischemic changes in bilateral frontparietal sub cortical white matter.what is the medicne for this?
Dad, 66, is affected with "chronic ischemic changes in periventri white matter" and "disprop prominence of ventri system c/p to cortical sulci" cure?
Described often: Presume on mri, white matter lesions as noted, which are usually nonspecific, but can be associated with hypertension, diabetes, or high blood fats causing "hardening of the arteries" (aka, microvascular angiopathy). This pattern might be consistent with ms in some cases, so needs correlation for relevance. Not a description of stroke, but an indication for prevention of future stroke. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
