______ infarcts: small infarcts in the deeper parts of the brain and in the brain stem. Account for 20 percent of all strokes.
Skull fracture shears the middle meningeal artery resulting in bleeding and dissection of the dura from the inner table of the skull. The expanding mass increases ICP and may produ
Results from trauma that shears the veins or small arteries that traverse the space between the arachnoid and the dura.
Areas of the brain at the junction of arterial territories.
Neurofibrillary tangles in Alzheimer's disease and ______ bodies in Parkinson's disease are examples of neuronal changes in specific conditions.
______ subdural hematoma occurs as a result of a minimal trauma and is seen in the very young and the elderly.
______ is a powerful excitatory neurotransmitter, which is increased in ischemic conditions.
Self-limited episode of vascular obstruction by atheromatous emboli and/or platelet and fibrin aggreagates. Disappear within 60 minutes. Symptoms are amaurosis fugax, aphasia, pare
3 Major categories of the CNS vascular disease: Reduction of blood flow, vascular obstruction causing an infarct and _______.
Cortical laminar necrosis is caused by generalized failure of _______
Results from damage to the axon. The neuronal body swells due to accumulation of neurofilaments and the Nissl substance migrates peripherally.
Most common cause of an intracranial arterial occlusion is an _____ from the heart or from a more proximal arterial segment blocking a branch of the MCA.
