57 Possible Causes for Lacunar Infarction, Narrow Hands

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Approximately 80% of all strokes are due to cerebral infarction from large and small (lacunar) vessel disease as well as cardioembolic sources.[dx.doi.org]

  • Stroke

  • Arteriosclerosis

    It is the underlying mechanism of small vessel ischemic changes and lacunar infarcts in the brain of hypertensive patients and in most renovascular disease.[radiopaedia.org] If they show white spots, it could indicate that your leg arteries are narrowed down and not enough blood can reach your feet.[manataka.org] Inflammation-mediated damage in progressing lacunar infarctions: a potential therapeutic target. Stroke 33 : 982–987, 2002 .[physrev.physiology.org]

  • 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] 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]

  • Carotid Stenosis

    Lacunar infarctions and carotid artery disease. Lancet 1991 ; 337 : 1361 –2. 42 Fisher CM. Lacunar infarcts: a review.[academic.oup.com] The narrowing of the arterial wall's diameter renders the blood flow to the brain inadequate; thus, a stroke may occur.[symptoma.com] When stenosis is more than 75%, the combined rate for TIA and stroke is 10.5% per year, but some of those strokes are cerebral hemorrhages or lacunar infarcts that would not[sciencebasedmedicine.org]

  • Median Neuropathy

    In exceptional cases, patients referred to the EMG laboratory for suspicion of CTS will be found to have a small lacunar infarct involving the lateral thalamus and internal[clinicalgate.com] At the base of the hand is a narrow place between bones and ligament where the median nerve and tendons are found. This area is called the carpal tunnel.[peripheralneuropathycenter.uchicago.edu] CTS versus lacunar/thalamic infarcts Sensory symptoms in thalamic infarcts may affect the hand unilaterally.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    […] cerebral arteries (lacunar infarction); and proximal arterial stenosis with hypotension that decreases cerebral blood flow in arterial watershed zones (hemodynamic stroke)[msdmanuals.com] In the narrow sense of the term, CT occurs if a thrombus develops within a cerebral vessel (intrinsic cerebral thrombosis, ICT).[symptoma.com] Common causes are (from most to least common) atherothrombotic occlusion of large arteries; cerebral embolism (embolic infarction); nonthrombotic occlusion of small, deep[msdmanuals.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] Stroke subtype was available in only 22% of studies although when reported, hemispheric, nonlacunar infarcts were most frequent.[doi.org]

  • Nothnagel's Syndrome

    Unilateral internuclear ophthalmoplegia can result from a lacunar infarct — but always remember the possibility of multiple sclerosis.[lifeinthefastlane.com] Hypotensive retinopathy may also include retinal arteriole narrowing, macular edema, and neovascularization in the posterior pole.[neupsykey.com] Two mesencephalic lacunar infarcts presenting as Claude's syndrome and pure motor hemiparesis. Eur Neurol 1991;31:152-155. 9. Hriso E, Masdeu JC, Miller A.[collections.lib.utah.edu]

  • 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]
