Retrograde cerebral embolism

A L PriorR W Ross Russell


Cerebral embolism may complicate lesions of the subclavian arteries or aortic isthmus distal to the origins of the vertebral or carotid arteries. This may be due to retrograde propagation of occlusive thrombus. In other cases the vessels are patent but there are periods of reverse blood flow, creating a potential for reflux of embolic material to the ostia of the neck vessels.

Aortic Aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm is the weakening and bulging of the blood vessel wall in the aorta. This causes dilatation of the aorta, which is usually asymptomatic but carries the risk of rupture and hemorrhage. Find the latest research on aortic aneurysms here.

Cardiac Aneurysm

Aneurysm refers to a bulge of the wall or lining of a vessel commonly occurring in the blood vessels at the base of the septum or within the aorta. In the heart, it usually arises from a patch of weakened tissue in a ventricular wall, which swells into a bubble filled with blood. Discover the latest research on cardiac aneurysm here.
