In this age once we are witnessing a veritable explosion in new modalities in diagnos tic imaging we proceed to have an outstanding want for particular reports of the vascularity of the mind in sufferers who've every kind of cerebral vascular illness. a lot of the certainty of cerebral vascular occlusive lesions which we constructed within the final twenty years used to be in keeping with our skill to illustrate the vessels that have been affected. a lot experimental paintings in animals have been performed the place significant cerebral vessels have been obstructed and the results of those obstructions at the mind saw pathologically. even if, it used to be now not till cerebral angiography may be played with the aspect that grew to become attainable within the a long time of the '60 's and accordingly that shall we start to comprehend the connection of the obstructed vessels saw angiographically to the scientific findings. furthermore, a lot physiologic details used to be acquired. for example, the idea that ofluxury perfusion that is used to explain non-nutritional move throughout the tissues was once saw first angiographically even if the time period was once now not used until eventually LASSEN defined it as a pathophysiological phenomenon saw in the course of cerebral blood move reports with radioactive isotopes. the concept that of embolic occlusions of the cerebral vessels as opposed to thrombosis was once clarified and the relative frequency of thrombosis as opposed to embolism was once greater understood. the idea that of collateral move of the mind via so-called meningeal end-to finish arterial anastomoses used to be significantly greater understood whilst serial angiography in obstructive cerebral vascular ailment used to be conducted with expanding frequency.

The inner side of the proximal part of the left subclavian artery may be particularly involved in the degenerative process. Examples are given in Figs. 14, 16, 17, 20, 29. Occlusion of the subclavian artery occurred in about 5% of our cases. This is generally located in the proximal segment of the artery and leads to the typical angiographic and clinical syndrome known as "subclavian steal syndrome" (Figs. 21-23). 3 Generalized Atherosclerosis Without Stenosis or Occlusion This pattern was present in 4% of the cases of NEWTON et al.
25) Kinking: Angulation of one or more segments of the vessel associated with stenosis (Fig. 26) Tortuosity and coiling are often congenital and thus already visible in children; they increase with age. Kinking is a deformation typically occurring in aged arteries. In a recent radio anatomic study CLARISSE et al. (1979) showed that with advancing age dilatation and elongation of the artery due to thinning of the wall and to a loss of elasticity, respectively, occur. The consequences of this process are different grades of coiling or kinking.
2 Lesions of the Subclavian and Innominate Arteries Routine use of aortic arch angiography has shown that atherosclerotic lesions of the proximal segment of the subclavian and innominate arteries are very common. NEWTON et al. (1964) and NEWTON and WYLIE (1964) demonstrated lesions of these vessels in 35% of their patients examined for cerebrovascular insufficiency. Lesions were present in about 25% of our material and twice as often on the left as on the right. Atherosclerotic plaques are very often close to the aortic arch or near the origin of the vertebral artery, which can also be involved by the plaque.
