Cerebrovascular disease

Cerebrovascular disease includes the brain abnormalities related to diseases of the blood vessels delivering to the brain. Hypertension is the most common cause. Hypertension damages the blood vessel lining, which exposes the underlying collagen. Platelets gather in the collagen to begin a repairing process that is not always thorough. Continuous hypertension permanently changes the structure of the blood vessels. They may become narrow, stiff and uneven which makes them more vulnerable to blood pressure changes.  A drop in blood pressure while sleeping can lead to a reduction in blood flow in the narrowed blood vessels. This could cause ischemic stroke in the morning. A sudden rise in blood pressure due to excitement during the daytime may cause ripping of the blood vessels. This would result in intracranial hemorrhage. Cerebrovascular diseases primarily affect elderly people or those with diabetes, heart disease, or in the habit of smoking. Cerebrovascular disease can result in stroke or a hemorrhagic stroke. Ischemia or blood vessel abnormalities may affect the patient during a cerebrovascular episode.
