21 Possible Causes for Lacunar Infarction, MRI Scan of the Brain Abnormal, Narrow Hands

  • Stroke

    […] cerebral circulation stroke Pure motor lacunar infarction Pure sensorimotor lacunar infarction Pure sensory lacunar infarction R.I.N.D. syndrome Reversible ischemic neurologic[icd9data.com] She improved significantly, and eight hours after tPA therapy, had only moderate expressive speech difficulties and mild hemiparesis on the right (dominant hand) side.[medpagetoday.com] […] to identify abnormalities in the brain arteries (such as aneurysms) or other sources of bleeding, and structural MRI if this shows no cause.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Hypertension

    Myocardial infarction and angina identified by electrocardiogram (ECG) or coronary revascularization, and silent events, were considered to meet the inclusion criteria.[doi.org] In arterioles, on the other hand, decreases in the density of blood vessels (rarefaction) and in vasomotion amplitude may play a more important role than reductions in lumen[doi.org] An MRI is more sensitive than a CT scan for detecting cerebral cortical abnormalities but less useful in detecting cerebral hemorrhage.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Cerebrovascular Disorder

    […] cerebral circulation stroke Pure motor lacunar infarction Pure sensorimotor lacunar infarction Pure sensory lacunar infarction R.I.N.D. syndrome Reversible ischemic neurologic[icd9data.com] […] to think about narrowing or occlusion of the proximal artery insufficiency of collateral blood supply, leading to transient focal ischemia ("low bloodflow") of the cortex[minclinic.ru] […] to identify abnormalities in the brain arteries (such as aneurysms) or other sources of bleeding, and structural MRI if this shows no cause.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    infarcts (process: fibrinoid necrosis or lipohyalinosis) 14.[slideshare.net] In carotid ultrasounds, high-frequency sound waves are directed from a hand-held transducer probe to the target area.[mountsinai.org] infarcts.[thejournalofheadacheandpain.springeropen.com]

  • Fabry Disease

    […] new (lacunar) infarction (see table 2 ).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It can have lots of different symptoms, including pain in the hands and feet and a specific kind of rash.[webmd.com] MRI and CT Scanning Brain MRI or computed tomography (CT) scans should be obtained to visualize the site and extent of infarction.[emedicine.com]

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    Periventricular signal changes may be associated with subcortical vascular encephalopathy (also with lacunar infarctions) in NPH, but this does not predict poor surgical outcome[doi.org] MRI or CT scan of the brain demonstrates ventricular enlargement disproportionate to cortical atrophy.[medcomic.com] infarctions in NPH did not predict a poor outcome from shunt surgery [ 11 ].[intechopen.com]

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    In the studies including lacunar infarcts, new AF was not detected in the majority of studies 25, 38, 39, 43 or at relatively low frequency in the others (2.9% 19 and 7.6%[doi.org] The operator's hand is emphasising a prominent branch, which is narrow and has an irregular edge.[doi.org] CT or MRI scan of the brain: should be performed if there is any suggestion of stroke or TIA.[patient.info]

  • Ischemic Peripheral Neuropathy

    Lacunar infarcts can produce a large variety of clinical deficits depending on their location within the brainstem and have been characterized by more than 70 different clinical[cdemcurriculum.com] […] to detect any structural or biochemical abnormalities of the brain.[britannica.com] […] strokes are described by the 5 most common lacunar syndromes: pure motor hemiparesis, sensorimotor stroke, ataxic hemiparesis, pure sensory stroke, and dysarthria-clumsy hand[cdemcurriculum.com]

  • Tachyarrhythmia

    In the studies including lacunar infarcts, new AF was not detected in the majority of studies 25, 38, 39, 43 or at relatively low frequency in the others (2.9% 19 and 7.6%[doi.org] The operator's hand is emphasising a prominent branch, which is narrow and has an irregular edge.[doi.org] CT or MRI scan of the brain: should be performed if there is any suggestion of stroke or TIA.[patient.info]

  • Endocarditis

    (TACI), partial anterior circulation infarct (PACI), lacunar infarct (LACI) or posterior circulation infarct (POCI).[en.wikipedia.org] […] reddish-brown lines of blood that run underneath the nails painful raised lumps that develop on the fingers and toes painful red spots that develop on the palms of your hand[nhs.uk] For hemorrhagic strokes, a CT or MRI scan with intravascular contrast may be able to identify abnormalities in the brain arteries (such as aneurysms) or other sources of bleeding[en.wikipedia.org]
