Devil in the details: What you need to know are the numbers. For instance, if you have 50% stenosis of all major vessels, you meet criterion 1 (above). ("significant" is a vague term). Imagine you develop acute coronary syndrome and angio shows 99% stenosis of 1 vessel. You now meet criterion #2 (above). In modern practice, "single vessel disease" means you don't usually need bypass surgery, but PCI with stent. ...Read more
Parse the words: Chronic = long-standing. Microvascular = small blood vessel. Ischemic = insufficient blood flow. Technically such a condition can affect any organ in the body but this condition gets most attention due to neurologic involvement. Certain genetic & environmental factors contribute to this condition--that is, there is more than one cause. ...Read more
My cat scan showed mild intracranial atrophy and mild supratentorial small vessel white matter disease?
Mom is 79 brain CT scan: moderate cerebral volume loss, mild widening of the cortical sulci, mild white matter microvasc. Ischemic disease serious?
Depends: Most likely these are aging changes that have occurred with time. ...Read more
81 year old mother, CT periventricular deep white matter changes and moderate small vessel iscjaemic disease. serious?
Chronic is Typical: Artery disease, especially in the heart arteries, is dominant human behavior, typically starts in childhood yet is typically ignored for decades because it remains asymptomatic until plaque ruptures release debris, triggers clots & suddenly blocks blood flow. These plaque ruptures are the basis for acute symptomatic disease. Thus best to treat the driving factors early, not wait for symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mild periventricular and subcortical abnormal T2 and FLAIR signal is
nonspecific, but likely representative of chronic microvascular disease ?
Need clarification.: Tiny white matter spots like these can be due to small vessel vascular insufficiency, as mentioned, as well as conditions like multiple sclerosis and Lyme disease. Or they can have no specific cause at all. But in a young person like yourself, a good examination and testing would be in order. ...Read more

MRI result: "Mild presumed chronic small vessel ischemic changes in the supratentorial white matter." Should I be concerned?
Is stable bilateral frontaoparietal white matter t2w/flair hyperintense signals, probably chronic microvascular ischemic changes called mild stroke?
Precursor for nothin: That's a phrase used by radiologists reading MRI's & doesn't specify any particular process. Is seen as part of the normal aging process as well as part of expected findings in people who have been diagnosed and are being treated for diabetes, high cholesterol, smokers, and those with high blood pressure. Cannot predict dementia by any means. ...Read more
