HEMORRHAGIC CEREBROVASCULAR DISEASE
 
 
What Is Cerebral Vascular Disease?
Cerebrovascular disease:
Disease of the blood vessels and, especially, the arteriesthat supply the brainCerebrovascular disease is usually caused by atherosclerosis and can lead to a stroke.
What Is It?
-Hemorrhagic stroke is a term used to refer to the sudden onset of bleeding within the brain. Thecause of this brain hemorrhage can vary depending on the underlying pathology that caused thestroke.Primary hemorrhage can be caused by pathologies that can lead to sudden bleeding. Someexamples of these causes are:

: High blood pressure (hypertension) can lead to spontaneoushemorrhage into the brain leading to the sudden onset of neurological symptoms.-Hemorrhagic stroke can also refer to a condition that occurs secondary to anischemic stroke(cerebral infarction). If the brain and blood vessels are damaged by decreased blood flow to aregion of the brain and then blood flow is restored, either due to some treatment or to natural processes within the body, then bleeding into that area of damaged brain can occur. The previously "bland" infarct can then undergo "hemorrhagic transformation", bleeding into the areaof infarction. This is often referred to as a hemorrhagic form of stroke.
