I[edit]

I just want to know exactly what microvascular ischemia is??Girl

Ischemia means lack of blood supply. Microvascular means it involves small blood vessels. WhatamIdoing (talk) 05:58, 22 January 2008 (UTC)



Image[edit]

I really need help adding an image to this article. This image is at http://rad.usuhs.edu/medpix/medpix_image.html?imageid=20376. Your help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks, --Saunc2011 (talk) 15:50, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

The citations that I have placed in with the additions I have made to the article are listed by the number that preceeds them. The citation may be for a whole paragraph of information. Thank you. --Saunc2011 (talk) 20:37, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

I am now working on this article for my AP biology project. If you have any suggestions or interests in this topic just let me know on my talk page! :-) All of the project information can be located through the banner at the top of this page.

Suggestions[edit]

Just a few things I noted while I was glancing through -- random things you'll probably get hit with upon GAN:

  • From Background: I, personally, would put the different types of ischemia in the Related conditions section.
  • Try to incorporate your See also section into the article itself
  • The infobox could use some expanding, and yes, a picture would be great here, but isn't absolutely necessary
  • Diagnosis section would be a nice addition

Feel free to drop by at my talk page if you need anything. Cheers! Strombollii (talk) 16:25, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Also, should the image that you have in your infobox, from the stroke page, be at the top of the article? It seems to be specifically describing Focal ischemia. Strombollii (talk) 12:31, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Your Causes section discusses the results of brain ischemia. This would be better placed under a heading such as Prognosis or integrated with Pathophysiology (check with medmos/the doc's mess on that one).
  • The information under Management needs sources.
  • Really, I prefer Treatment to Management, as "Management" implies the results of living with ischemia: i.e. therapy, rehabilitation as a result of the stroke. But hey, that's more of a stylistic preference
  • Prevention section seems viable, given the causes, but that may be a mis-observation.

Removed ref. from article[edit]

These two references didn't appear to be be used in the actual article. (If I remember correctly, they were there before the re-write?) Since they aren't foot-noted there really isn't a reason for them to be in the text. Someone might want to put them in some sort of "see also" section? --Yohmom (talk) 19:44, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Brain ischemia[edit]

This article is unclear and needs to be better structured. It is about the the global classification that involves regional ischemia ( TIAs, and ischemic strokes ) and globals ischemias ( secondary to hypotensives crises )--Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 05:36, 5 April 2009 (UTC) Here is one classification system from UPTODATE BRAIN ISCHEMIA

  1. Thrombosis
    1. Large vessel disease
    2. Small vessel disease
  1. Embolism
    1. High-risk cardiac source
    2. Potential cardiac source
    3. Aortic atherosclerosis
  1. Systemic hypoperfusion
  1. Blood disorders
  2. TOAST classification

--Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 05:37, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Brain ischemia can be devided into three different groups: thrombosis, emobolism, and hypoperfusion. Each one of these than has a number of causes Embolism can occur due to atrial fib, infectious endocarditis etc, thrombosis can occur in large or small vessels secondary to diabetese and age. Systemic hypoperfusion occurs with MI, with sepsis. --Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:16, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

On further reading brain ischemia is a subtype of stroke along with Intracerebral hemorrhage and Subarachnoid hemorrhage.--Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:20, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Organized[edit]

Organized this article but a lot more work needs to be done.--Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:22, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

WP: MEDMOS doesn't account for a Background section: the info you have could maybe be categorized under Pathophysiology? Strombollii (talk) 12:51, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Grandfather[edit]

is it too serious?? my grand father suffers from brain ischemia. docters said that there is insufficient supply of blood to brain. and there is a clot part in brain. he is like 76 year old,has obesity,is like height of 6 feet.pleasetry to answer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 14.99.12.253 (talk) 19:39, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
I'm sorry, Wikipedia editors are volunteers who don't necessarily have any medical credentials, and we are not permitted to answer questions about specific cases. You will have to look elsewhere for information. Looie496 (talk) 22:37, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
