Brain Ischemia (Cerebral Ischemia) Summary

Description: Localized reduction of blood flow to brain tissue due to arterial obstruction or systemic hypoperfusion. This frequently occurs in conjunction with brain hypoxia (HYPOXIA, BRAIN). Prolonged ischemia is associated with BRAIN INFARCTION.

Also Known As: Cerebral Ischemia; Encephalopathy, Ischemic; Ischemia, Cerebral; Brain Ischemias; Cerebral Ischemias Show All >>
