disease of the blood vessels in the brain.
An illness that disrupts blood supply to the brain, such as a stroke.
Any disease affecting an artery supplying blood to the brain.
CVD pertaining to the brain, see above.
A disease which affects an artery's ability to supply blood to the brain.
The term used to describe all abnormalities of the brain caused by problems with its blood vessels. Stroke is the major, but not the only, form of cerebrovascular disease.
A disease of the blood vessels that supply the brain.
Damage to the blood vessels in the brain, which may result in a stroke.
Narrowing of the supply to the cerebrum (brain) sufficiently to prevent adequate blood supply from reaching the brain. The narrowing is usually caused by atherosclerosis, and may progress to the point where the brain tissue is damaged due to lack of blood supply.
A disease affecting any artery supplying blood to the brain; may cause blockage or rupture of a blood vessel, leading to a stroke. An artery is a large blood vessel that carries oxygen in the blood from the heart to tissues and organs in the body. Stroke is damage to part of the brain because of a lack of blood supply (due to a blockage in an artery or the rupturing of a blood vessel). Stroke can lead to complete or partial loss of function in the area of the body that is controlled by the damaged part of the brain.
Disorders that affect the blood vessels that supply the brain that may result in a stroke.
Damage to the blood vessels in the brain, resulting in a stroke. The blood vessels become blocked because of fat deposits or they become thick and hard, blocking the flow of blood to the brain. Sometimes, the blood vessels may burst, resulting in a hemorrhagic stroke. People with diabetes are at higher risk of cerebrovascular disease. See also: Macrovascular disease; stroke.
Abnormal condition of the blood vessels of the brain resulting in impairment of blood and oxygen flow to the brain. Interference to the circulation due to bleeding from a weakened artery (cerebral haemorrhage) or blockage of an artery (cerebral thrombosis and cerebral embolism) is known as a stroke. ICD-9 Codes 430-438. ICD-10 Codes I60-I69.
Disease relating to the cerebrum and the blood vessels supplying it.
Pertaining to the blood vessels of the brain.
A reduction in the supply of blood to the brain either by narrowing of the arteries through the buildup of plaque on the inside walls of the arteries, called stenosis, or through blockage of an artery due to a blood clot.
disease involving the blood vessels supplying the brain, including cerebrovascular accident (CVA), also known as a stroke.
Blockage of blood vessels of the brain that results in stroke.
damage to blood vessels in the brain. Vessels can burst and bleed or become clogged with fatty deposits. When blood flow is interrupted, brain cells die or are damaged, resulting in a stroke.
A type of CVD caused by the reduction in blood supply to the brain. Includes stroke and transient ischaemic attacks.
Disease of the cerebrum and the blood vessels supplying it.
Cerebrovascular disease is damage to the blood vessels in the brain, resulting in a stroke. The blood vessels can become blocked because of fat deposits, or a wandering blood clot, blocking the flow of blood to a part of the brain. Sometimes, the blood vessels may leak, break, or burst, resulting in a hemorrhagic stroke.
