Silent Dangers: Understanding Cerebral Vascular Stenosis and Its Effects on the Brain

Narrowed blood vessels in the brain can lead to cerebral vascular stenosis, a condition that reduces or blocks the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the brain. This condition is caused by the buildup of atherosclerotic plaques on the arterial walls, which can further narrow the vessels and potentially cause a stroke or transient ischemic attack. Symptoms of cerebral vascular stenosis include headaches, memory loss, numbness or weakness on one side of the body, speech disorders, dizziness, and blurred vision.

Factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, fatty blood, tobacco addiction, an unhealthy lifestyle, and aging can increase the risk of developing this condition. If left untreated, cerebral vascular stenosis can lead to serious complications such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, ischemic stroke, and even death.

To diagnose cerebral vascular stenosis patients may undergo tests such as brain computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), transcranial Doppler ultrasound and digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Treatment options include medication, endovascular intervention or surgery depending on the severity of the condition. It’s important for patients to follow their treatment plan and attend regular follow-up appointments to monitor progress and address any changes promptly.
