Left Cerebral Artery Stroke
Yes: The short answer is yesGet a more detailed answer ›
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from capillaries back to the heart (body to right heart; ...Read more
Basilar for brainstm: The top of the basilar artery is like a fork in the road. When a blood clot affects this area, small strokes can occur in the brainstem, causing numbness, weakness, trouble talking, eye symptoms, or impaired consciousness, and sometimes, more than one stroke occurs at the same time. ...Read more
2 things: Carotid artery stenosis means narrowing of the artery. Stroke is death or damage to brain due to circulatory issues. Many strokes (approx 1/3rd) are due to carotid artery disease. Although frequently connected, they are not the same. Many strokes occur without carotid stenosis. Many carotids are completely occluded (slowly) without resultant strokes. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Hmmmm...: The propensity to have a stroke can be genetic. The specific arterial occlusion, not necessarily. But, high colesterol, high blood pressure and family history of stroke put you in a higher risk catagory. If you smoke you increase your risk exponentially. Lifestyle modification can be key. If on the otherhand you are talking about aneurysms--that could very well be linked. ...Read more

Normal variant: The arteries at the base of the brain can course in several different patterns but ultimately get the job done, that is, supply brain tissue. Your pattern is like your fingerprint. Some more unusual patterns have an increased association with aneurysms, but this would have likely been described if present and vertebro basilar hypoplasia, as in the picture, is pretty common. ...Read more
Basilar artery: Basilar artery is formed by the confluence of the vertebral arteries. Vertebral arteries are branches off the subclavian arteries. They supply the posterior aspect of brain and flow into the circle of willis. Vertebral occlusions can occur due to atherosclerotic disease and dissection from trauma. ...Read more
Pathophysiology: Ischemic stroke occurs when an artery to the brain is blocked.A thrombotic stroke occurs when diseased or damaged cerebral arteries become blocked by the formation of a blood clot within the brain. An embolic stroke is also caused by a clot within an artery, but in this case the clot (or emboli) forms somewhere other than in the brain itself. Hemorrhagic stroke is sudden bleed into the brain. ...Read more
