A stroke occurs when blood supply to the brain is interrupted depriving the brain of oxygen and nutrients. This feed focuses cerebrovascular accidents including ischemic and paralytic stroke.
Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.
Basal ganglia cerebrovascular disease is a condition where the blood vessels in the basal ganglia are damaged or malfunction. Discover the latest research on basal ganglia cerebrovascular disease here.
Brain ischemia is a condition in which there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet metabolic demand. Discover the latest research on brain ischemia here.
This feed focuses on Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) and the lymphatic system. Discover the latest papers using imaging techniques to track CSF outflow into the lymphatic system in animal models.
Carotid artery disease is a group of pathological conditions of the carotid artery. Discover the latest research on carotid artery disease here.
Central nervous system vasculitis is a newly recognized inflammatory brain disease, which may develop as a primary condition, or secondary to an underlying systemic disease. Here is the latest research.
Cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) includes several diseases affecting the small arteries, arterioles, venules, and capillaries of the brain, and refers to several pathological processes and etiologies. Discover the latest research on CSVD here.
Cerebrovascular trauma, also known as blunt cerebrovascular injury (BCVI) is a non-penetrating injury to the carotid and/or vertebral artery that may cause stroke in trauma patients. Discover the latest research on cerebrovascular trauma here.
Apolipoprotein E (APOE) is a protein involved in fat metabolism and associated with the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases. This feed focuses on the role of this protein in cerebrovasculature and cerebrovascular dysfunction.

Periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) is a form of white-matter brain injury, characterized by the necrosis (more often coagulation) of white matter near the lateral ventricles. Discover the latest research on PVL here.
Vascular Dementia refers to the decline in thinking ability caused by cerebrovascular diseases. Discover the latest research on aspects underlying vascular dementia here.
Vascular headache is an outdated term to describe certain types of headache which were thought to be related to blood vessel swelling and hyperemia as cause of pain. Headaches formerly classified as vascular headaches are now identified as migraines, cluster headaches, and illness-related headaches. Discover the latest research on vascular headaches here.
