Moreover, silent CSVD, which is usually ignored, is characterized by white matter lesions (WMLs), enlarged perivascular spaces (EPVSs), lacunar infarcts
(LIs), and cerebral microbleeds (CMBs).
Global involutional changes, bilateral old lacunar infarcts
and acute infarcts at splenium of corpus callosum and deep white matter along the occipital horn of the right lateral ventricle were identified.
Watershed lesions and lacunar infarcts
were noticed among 16.
An uncontrasted brain computed tomography (CT) scan revealed age-inappropriate atrophy with multiple lacunar infarcts
due to significant small-vessel disease.
Patients with clinical features suggestive of transient ischemic attack (TIA), intracranial hemorrhage, lacunar infarcts
, bilateral infarcts, multiple infarcts, anterior cerebral artery territory infarcts and posterior circulation strokes were excluded from the study.
However, no relationship was observed between caveolin-1 and the presence of silent lacunar infarcts
and white matter hyperintensities, two other types of cerebral small vessel disease.
Strokes are divided into three types: cardiogenic, atherothrombotic, and lacunar infarcts
The study authors write: "Purpose in life may affect risk for cerebral infarcts, specifically macroscopic lacunar infarcts
A computed tomography scan of his head identified several infarcts in the territories of the left middle cerebral artery, the left and right posterior cerebral artery, and lacunar infarcts
in the left basal ganglia and right thalamus.
Elevated platelet microparticles in transient ischemic attacks, lacunar infarcts
, and multi-infarct dementias.
All those events are consistent with a diagnosis of lacunar infarcts
in the deep tissues of the brain.
The second type of lesions is lacunar infarcts
in the semioval center, thalamus, basal ganglia, and pons, while the third type is represented with cerebral microbleeds (CMBs).
