Cerebrovascular conditions

Aneurysms, vertebral stenosis, and intracranial stenosis are all types of cerebrovascular conditions, as are stroke and carotid stenosis.

Vessel constriction (stenosis), thrombosis, obstruction, or rupture of a blood vessel can all cause a reduction in blood flow (haemorrhage). In addition, a lack of blood supply to the brain (ischemia) can lead to a stroke.


There are no recognized causes of cerebrovascular anomalies. However, the following conditions can lead to cerebral stenosis or aneurysms:

  • Diabetes
  • Cholesterol levels are too high.
  • Diabetic hypertension
  • Obesity and lack of exercise
  • Smoking
  • A transient ischemic attack (TIA) or stroke typically isn’t the first sign of cerebrovascular stenosis. Trans ischemic attack or stroke symptoms may include the sudden onset of any or a combination of the following:
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Severe headache
  • Insomnia, disorientation, difficulties understanding, and lapses in memory
  • Arm or leg numbness or weakness
  • Weakness or drooping of one side of the face
  • Speech that is slurred or distorted
  • Vision loss or inability to see
  • Inability to walk due to a lack of coordination or balance

The doctor will analyze your symptoms, risk factors, family and medical histories and do a physical exam to diagnose cerebrovascular illness. In most situations, the doctor will also prescribe imaging tests to evaluate the brain’s arteries and veins. This includes:

  • Angiogram
  • Ultrasound
  • CT
  • MRI
  • EEG

Treatment options for cerebrovascular illness may include lifestyle modifications, medication, careful monitoring, and surgery, depending on the kind and severity of the condition.
