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

Mild cerebral and cerebellar atropy,mild ventriculomegaly and mild periventricular ischaemic white matter pallor at the age of 55?

What's the question

Pale_skin
The changes in the brain are abnormal, in tune with dementia, Alzheimer's, vascular or another type. But you didn't formulate the question so I will stop right here.

Dr. Joseph Accurso answered:

38y F. Brain MRI shows left maxillary polyp, partial empty sella, small chronic ischaemic lesions in subcorticle frontoparietal white matter. Cure?

Nothing to cure

Cerebrum
but try to prevent further damage. Maxillary sinus polyp is nothing to worry about unless sinus symptoms, then ENT consult. Partial empty sella cannot be fixed, and nothing to worry about unless abnormal pituitary function - may need to see an endocrinologist. Ischemic lesions may be within normal limits (allowed 1 per decade of life), but need to understand cause(s) and try to prevent more.

What is meant by ischaemic heart disease?

Not enough blood

Oxygen
Ischemic heart disease is when there is a partial blockage in the coronary arteries (which supply the heart muscle with blood). This blockage reduces the flow of blood to the point where the coronary arteries cannot meet the demand of the heart muscle with enough oxygen-rich blood.
