Small Vessel Cerebrovascular Disease
With single vessel luminal (phenobarbital) narrowing coronary artery disease what percent requires angio?
Inflammation: This is a pathology term related to inflammation and at times occlusion of blood vessels. In the central nervous system including the brain it can occur in the context of any process that increases inflammation. It is thought to contribute to neurodegeneration. There are a wide variety of conditions that can lead to it. Stay safe! ...Read more
See comments: Are you referring to radiology reading of an MRI of brain? In elderly, often thought that white matter lesions are associated with "microvascular angiopathy", sign of potential atherosclerosis. Maybe potential stroke risk, especially lacunar infarct, but not straightforwards. Your physician needs to assess stroke risk. Spots more likely from migraine or prior injury. ...Read more

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
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?
Ischemia: Ischemia means inadequate blood flow. This can happen because the large size blood vessels are narrowed. It can also happen with normal large vessels and abnormal small blood vessels causing the inadequate flow. This is 'small vessel ischemia'. We don't have surgery or stents for 'small vessels' at this time. ...Read more
Wats the difference in signifiant occlusive atheromatous disease of all my major cardiac vessels, and single vessel disease?
Limited vs diffuse: What's the difference between an isolated shower and a hurricane? ...Read more
MRI and MRA brain: Yes, an MRI can visualize blood vessels but not well; an MRA (MR angiogram) is the optimal MR test. It uses gadolinium which is not a radio-iodine and is not kidney toxic. Gadolinium can be eliminated slowly however, if a person has kidney impairment, and then the gadolinium can enter dermal tissues. Radiologists are aware. ...Read more

Medical therapy: if one has a tendancy for vascular disease - coronary artery disease being one area we are concerned about - then we have a reasonable set of recommendations to minimize disease progression, and even cause regression. These recs include: optimal weight, daily exercise, low fat/veg/mediterranean diets, lipid Rx, aspirin. other medicines like beta blockers or acei inhibitors can be helpful ...Read more
