31 Possible Causes for Thromboembolic Stroke May Occur

  • Carotid Stenosis

    In the United States, for instance, carotid artery disease causes a significant portion (approximately 10-20%) of the 500,000-plus strokes that occur each year.[medscape.com] The narrowing of the arterial wall's diameter renders the blood flow to the brain inadequate; thus, a stroke may occur.[symptoma.com] The type of symptoms depends on where the thromboembolism occurs.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

    A number of mechanisms may be responsible for the ischemic stroke occurring in patients with aortic dissection, including the extension of the dissection into the common carotid[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] arteries, thromboembolism, or cerebral hypoperfusion [13].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vascular Dementia

    Multiple small thromboembolic strokes or strokes in strategic locations such as the thalamus, frontal lobe or temporal lobes may cause cognitive impairment and frequently[immunityageing.biomedcentral.com] occur without classical stroke-like symptoms.[immunityageing.biomedcentral.com]

  • Right Heart Endocarditis

    Complications of persistent cyanosis include polycythemia , clubbing, thromboembolism (including stroke), bleeding disorders, brain abscess, and hyperuricemia.[msdmanuals.com] Hypercyanotic spells can occur in infants with unrepaired tetralogy of Fallot .[msdmanuals.com] Depending on the anomaly, pulmonary blood flow may be reduced, normal, or increased (often resulting in heart failure in addition to cyanosis), resulting in cyanosis of variable[msdmanuals.com]
