EXAMPLE 1, SAMPLE AUTOPSY SIGNOUT: * Cerebral age-related TDP-43 with Sclerosis (CARTS), with: ** TDP-43 pathology, limited to amygdala ** No morphologic hippocampal sclerosis ** Arteriolosclerosis, severe * Primary age-related tauopathy (PART), Braak neurofibrillary stage II-III * Argyrophilic grains (AGs) involving structures of mesial temporal lobe * Vascular brain injury (VBI), acute and remote infarcts, bilateral Comment: A combination of vascular brain injury and age-related neuropathologies are present, including primary age-related tauopathy (PART), argyrophilic grains (AGs), and cerebral age-related TDP-43 with sclerosis (CARTS).
Arteriolosclerosis that affects multiple brain regions is linked to hippocampal sclerosis of ageing.
Age was also compared in conjunction with the degree of arteriolosclerosis to determine the effect on the change in postoperative creatinine level at last follow-up (Table 4).
8 months) demonstrated higher postoperative creatinine levels for those kidneys with pathologically detectable severe arteriosclerosis and arteriolosclerosis, more than 10% IF/TA, and more than 5% GS, as well as for those with non-nephronsparing surgical techniques, that is, total or radical nephrectomies.
The presence of severe arteriosclerosis and/or arteriolosclerosis, IF/TA (>10%), GS (>5%), and type of surgery performed (total or partial) significantly correlated with a greater increase in postoperative creatinine level.
Degree of Arteriolosclerosis Compared With Global Glomerulosclerosis (GS) and Interstitial Fibrosis/Tubular Atrophy (IF/TA) Global GS % SD Range P Mild 5.
The pathology of the kidney in this entity shows prominent, diffuse, and nodular mesangial sclerosis; glomerular basement membrane thickening; and arteriosclerosis and arteriolosclerosis accompanied with hyalinosis.
His contemporaries, Gull and Sutton, (9) introduced the term "arterio-capillary fibrosis" to characterize this phenomenon, which would soon thereafter be referred to as arteriolosclerosis.
Currently, arteriosclerosis is classified into 3 lesions: (1) atherosclerosis, (2) Monckeberg medial calcific sclerosis, and (3) arteriolosclerosis.
Arteriolosclerosis affects arterioles throughout the body and is most typically associated with hypertension and diabetes mellitus.
