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
______ aneurysms are the most common type of aneurysm of cerebral arteries.
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.
Damage caused by ischemia, inflammation, metabolic disorders (hyponatremia, respiratory acidosis), toxins, trauma and tumors can result in a breakdown of the blood-brain barrier an
______ is a powerful excitatory neurotransmitter, which is increased in ischemic conditions.
Coup contre coup injury results from a blow on the _______ side of the head. Ventral side of the frontal and temporal lobes are common locations.
Axons are stretched but not severed. Sudden deformation causes compaction of neurofilaments, loss of microtubules and an arrest of the fast axoplasmic flow.
Victims age range are from a few days to 5yrs. Combination of subdural hematoma, subarachnoid hemorrhage, contusions, DAI, and retinal hemorrhage.
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

Viral infections may cause formation of ______ nodules.
Caused by blow to unsupported head. Most frequently in MVA.

3 Major categories of the CNS vascular disease: Reduction of blood flow, vascular obstruction causing an infarct and _______.
______ infarcts: small infarcts in the deeper parts of the brain and in the brain stem. Account for 20 percent of all strokes.
Results from damage to the axon. The neuronal body swells due to accumulation of neurofilaments and the Nissl substance migrates peripherally.
Charcot-Bouchard microaneurysm is associated with _______. Typical location is basal ganglia.
