cerebrovascular disease

Damage to the brain caused by disease of the arteries supplying it with blood, especially ATHEROSCLEROSIS. Arterial disease results in an inadequate blood flow and a reduction in the supply of vital oxygen and sugar. This leads to TRANSIENT ISCHAEMIC ATTACKS and STROKE.
cerebrovascular disease arterial disease of the brain, characterized in its mildest form as transient ischaemic attacks, or more severely as a stroke (cerebrovascular accident)
