Disease Brain Ischemia

Name Brain Ischemia
Synonyms Brain Ischemias | Cerebral Ischemia | Cerebral Ischemias | Encephalopathy, Ischemic | Ischemia, Brain | Ischemia, Cerebral | Ischemias, Cerebral | Ischemic Encephalopathies | Ischemic Encephalopathy
Definition 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.
