These white matter changes due to inadequate blood flow may be due to several factors affecting the blood vessels themselves. Blood flow may be constricted due to problems with cholesterol levels, or blood pressure problems. Heart conditions such as valve problems may also throw emboli (small clots) that may lodge in the small blood vessels in the brain. A cyst may be previous white matter areas that becomes organized, and most of these are present for a very long time.
Co-morbid conditions such as high cholesterol, blood pressure problems, and heart problems should be considered and ruled out.
Thank you Doctor for your quick response as always..
how serious is this? can they do something about it? and are these changes permanent in the white matter? once the blood flow is restored does it heal... ?
