322 Possible Causes for Ischemic Infarct of Brain

  • Hypertension

    Prior coronary revascularization Heart failure Brain Stroke or transient ischemic attack Dementia Chronic kidney disease Peripheral arterial disease Retinopathy TABLE 7.[doi.org] BP is often elevated in the immediate post-stroke period and is thought by some to be a compensatory physiological response to improve cerebral perfusion to ischemic brain[doi.org] As a result, it has been common practice after acute cerebral infarction to reduce or withhold BP treatment until the clinical condition has stabilized.[doi.org]

  • Essential Hypertension

  • Thrombosis

    For other applications such as acute ischemic stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury, cardiac arrest, and spinal injury, there is varying level of evidence[doi.org] Ischemic preconditioning increases antioxidants in the brain and peripheral organs after cerebral ischemia. Exp Neurol 2005 ; 192: 117 – 24.[dx.doi.org] There is now good evidence for RIC as an effective adjunct to reperfusion in ST-elevation myocardial infarction patients for improving clinical outcomes.[doi.org]
