Cerebrovascular Disease includes a variety of medical conditions that
affect the blood vessels of the brain and the cerebral circulation.
Arteries supplying oxygen and nutrients to the brain are often damaged
or deformed by these disorders. The most common presentation of
cerebrovascular disease is an ischemic attack or mini-stroke or
hemorrhagic stroke. Hypertension or high blood pressure is the most
important contributing risk factor for stroke and cerebrovascular
diseases as it can change the structure of blood vessels and result in
atherosclerosis, a condition that narrows blood vessels in the brain,
resulting in decreased cerebral perfusion. Other risk factors that
contribute to stroke include smoking and diabetes. Narrowed cerebral
arteries can lead to ischemic stroke, but continually elevated blood
pressure may cause tearing of vessels leading to a hemorrhagic stroke.
The drug eluting balloon (DEB) has emerged as an effective tool in the
arsenal of interventional cardiology devices. It delivers
antiproliferative drugs to local arterial tissue by single prolonged
paclitaxel coated balloon angioplasty inflation and prevents restenosis
leaving no implant behind.
For patients with previously untreated de-novo coronary artery disease
and patients with in-stent restenosis.
