It is a vascular disease of the cerebral area. It encompasses a group of conditions that minimize or cut off blood flow to affected areas of the brain. It is often encountered because of atherosclerosis which can sometimes lead to a stroke.

Symptoms

Some of the symptoms of cerebrovascular disease include

  • Impaired speech and verbal communication
  • Partial loss of vision
  • Loss of vision’
  • Seizures
  • Depression, mood and behavioral disturbances

Cerebro- Vascular conditions

  • Cerebral hemorrhage
  • Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage
  • Cardioembolic stroke
  • Brain aneurysms
  • Atherosclerosis-producing carotid stenosis or intracranial stenosis
  • Head and neck vascular malformations
  • Brain and spinal vascular malformations
  • Ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attacks
  • Dural arteriovenous shunts

Diagnostic examinations

Various diagnostic tests are conducted using state-of-the-art imaging equipment and technology such as:

  • MRI/ MRA
  • CT
  • PET
  • SPECT
  • Catheter based digital subtraction angiography
  • Transcranial Doppler Examination

Treatment for Cerebrovascular surgery

For Vascular malformations, the neurosurgeon generally removes a small section of the skull. Next they locate the vascular diseased blood vessel with a special microscope to locate the malformation cerebro condition. This vascular malformation is then removed from the brain or else it is closed off by applying heat to seal off the abnormal blood vessels.

For hemorrhagic disease, manage to stop the bleeding and prevent a recurrence of bleeding, which may be done through catheters, surgery and wire mesh stents.

For carotid artery disease our expert will aim to prevent an embolism or a blood clot that has the chance to break away from the arterial wall and travel to another, smaller artery, where it will become lodged and block the flow of blood. The treatment may include antiplatelet medications, and modification of lifestyle .

For removal of plaque, a procedure called a carotid endarterectomy may be used to remove plaque from the carotid artery to reopening the artery.
