Distinctive features of brain neuroimaging characteristics in patients with acute stroke against the background of lacunarinfarctions and brain at rophy. Interaction between different cerebral small vessel diseasesigns
Interest of the scientific society in such signs of cerebral small vessel diseases (CSVD) as lacunar infarctions (LI) and brain atrophy (BA) increasing every year. Considering high frequency of this signs in patients with acute stroke, investigation into it's modifying influence on stroke pathogenesis interaction of different cerebral small vessel diseases signs between each other is topical. Obtained data indicates the LI's and BA's influence on cerebral susceptibility to ischemia, distinctive features of cerebral oedema and functioning of blood-brain barrier, which emphasizes the importance of taking into consideration presence or absence of such CSVD signs as LI and BA on CT-scans of patients with acute stroke. In addition the investigation results shows some kind of linkage of this signs and theirs` mutual potentiation in the case of theirs` co-expression, what we can consider as an evidence of the existence of some points of coincidence in the etiology and pathogenesis of different CSVD signs.
