there really isn't any such thing as an ischaemic artery (it can happen, but I've never heard of it!). Rather ischemia (or ischaemia for our English and Australian friends) is a lack of sufficient oxygen delivery to a tissue. Oxygen is carried by HEMoglobin in the blood hence the iscHEMia. Ischemia is usually caused by an interruption to the blood flow to a particular area. One way to interrupt blood flow is to block an artery. (which usually deliver oxygenated blood to tissues) A blockage may be the result of a plaque (a fatty aggregation on the inside walls of an artery), or a thombus (clot), or an embolus of some sort. People often hear that they may have ischemic Heart disease. This is a condition of severely narrowed arteries (often greater than 70% of their cross sectional area may be blocked) which leads to decreased blood (and hence oxygen) supply to the muscle of the heart. This can cause Angina. If the coronary arteries completely block off, then a heart attack will ensue, where cardiac muscle dies because of lack of oxygen. Treatment ranges from medications to: lower cholesterol, decrease oxygen consumption of the heart, vasodilators to increase delivery of blood through that artery; to surgery to operate and either re-open the blocked vessel (balloon angioplasty and stenting ) or procedures to essentially replace the diseased vessels in By-pass surgery (CABG- coronary artery bypass grafting). Hopefully that helps!! Aj :)
transient -- doesn't last ischemic -- lack of blood supply arterial -- has to do with the arteries spasm -- muscle contraction
Iscehmia in the arteries of the brain can lead to stroke. About 80 - 85% of all strokes are ischemic.
Ischemic heart disease is a medical condition described by a restricted blood flow through arteries in the heart muscle. These arteries cannot carry sufficient oxygen to several areas of the body supplied by such blood vessels. This condition can result in a heart attack.
YES. Hypercholesterolemia or Dyslipidemia is harmful if not treated immediately. It can cause blockages in the arteries or narrowing of arteries that may lead to insufficient supply of blood to the brain, thus resulting to Transient Ischemic Attack or CVA.
Ischemic heart disease is basically reduced blood going to the heart. You have a blockage in the arteries which causes the blood flow to decrease with this disease.
TIA is the abbreviation for transient ischemic attack.
Ischemic necrosis is tissue death due to impairment of blood flow.
what is microangiopathic ischemic
Assuming that you mean ischemic heart disease, it is the same as coronary artery disease, where the arteries harden. It can be caused by a build up of cholesterol and prolonged exposure to certain herbicides.
The definition of an ischemic stroke is an obstruction with a blood vessel supplying blood to the brain. There are two main types of ischemic stroke embolic and thrombotic.
Ischemic strokes account for about 80% of all strokes.
