2,514 Possible Causes for Lacunar Infarction, Narrow Hands, Patient Appears Acutely Ill

  • Stroke

    […] cerebral circulation stroke Pure motor lacunar infarction Pure sensorimotor lacunar infarction Pure sensory lacunar infarction R.I.N.D. syndrome Reversible ischemic neurologic[] She improved significantly, and eight hours after tPA therapy, had only moderate expressive speech difficulties and mild hemiparesis on the right (dominant hand) side.[] Smoking causes your blood vessels to narrow and makes your blood more likely to clot.[]

  • 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.[] If they show white spots, it could indicate that your leg arteries are narrowed down and not enough blood can reach your feet.[] Inflammation-mediated damage in progressing lacunar infarctions: a potential therapeutic target. Stroke 33 : 982–987, 2002 .[]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    […] cerebral arteries (lacunar infarction); and proximal arterial stenosis with hypotension that decreases cerebral blood flow in arterial watershed zones (hemodynamic stroke)[] In the narrow sense of the term, CT occurs if a thrombus develops within a cerebral vessel (intrinsic cerebral thrombosis, ICT).[] Common causes are (from most to least common) atherothrombotic occlusion of large arteries; cerebral embolism (embolic infarction); nonthrombotic occlusion of small, deep[]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

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

  • Malignant Hypertension

    […] dysfunction (due to increased afterload) aortic dissection (due to medial degeneration) intracerebral hemorrhage (due to medial degeneration, Charcot-Bouchard aneurysms) lacunar[] infarcts, deep white matter ischemia (due to hyaline arteriosclerosis) chronic renal impairment (due to hyaline arteriolosclerosis) accelerated (malignant) hypertension Accelerated[]

  • Brain Stem Infarction

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has greater sensitivity than CT in the identification of ischemia with small lacunar infarcts being seen only on MRI.[] All of them had lacunar infarctions localized at the medial lemniscus and/or spinothalamic tract, at the pontine (12 patients) or midbrain (1 patient) tegmentum.[] MR images of a 56-year-old woman with mild right hemiparesis show left upper pontine infarct of 40 mm but no lacunar infarction in the supratentorial region.[]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    Lacunar infarctions are associated with a kind of vascular damage caused by chronic high blood pressure called lipohyalinosis.[] In the second test, the patient's neck is extended by the examiner who then places interlocked hands on the patient's scalp and gently presses caudally.[] In addition to cardiac disease and atherosclerosis, small vessel disease causing lacunar stroke is a frequent cause of cerebral infarction [ 19 ].[]

  • 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%[] The operator's hand is emphasising a prominent branch, which is narrow and has an irregular edge.[] Stroke subtype was available in only 22% of studies although when reported, hemispheric, nonlacunar infarcts were most frequent.[]

  • Hypertension

    Myocardial infarction and angina identified by electrocardiogram (ECG) or coronary revascularization, and silent events, were considered to meet the inclusion criteria.[] 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[] Approximately 80% of all strokes are due to cerebral infarction from large and small (lacunar) vessel disease as well as cardioembolic sources.[]

  • Basal Ganglia Hemorrhage

    Small infarcts: Lacunar infarcts occur as a result of localized decreased blood flow resulting in localized cell death.[] The anatomical structures responsible for dysarthria have been reported in patients with lacunar infarcts, but the related lesions in patients with basal ganglia hemorrhage[] If it obstructs the foramen it could be a problem. ...Read more See 1 more doctor answer 19 What does a small lacunar infarct in the right basal ganglia mean?[]
