Cerebrovascular Aliments: Potential Causes

image_pdfimage_print

Cerebrovascular disease is a group of brain dysfunctions related to disease of the blood vessels supplying the brain. Hypertension is the most important cause; it damages the blood vessel lining, endothelium, exposing the underlying collagen where platelets aggregate to initiate a repairing process which is not always complete and perfect. Sustained hypertension permanently changes the architecture of the blood vessels making them narrow, stiff, deformed, uneven and more vulnerable to fluctuations in blood pressure.

The following cerebrovascular aliments are identified:

  • Cerebral Insufficiency (Hypoperfusion)
  • Cerebral Thrombosis
  • Cerebral Embolism
  • Stroke

The downloadable document (PDF) below provides a Table that lists the researched and recognized potential causes of Cerebrovascular Aliments:
