Hello doctor,

I suddenly felt out of balance and threat of falling. Occurred frequently. Took MR brain with angio. In observation, the report said the following. Chronic lacunar infarct with gliosis in left corona radiata. Discreet diffusion non restricted subcortical FLAIR hyperintensities noted- small vessel ischemic changes. Cerebral and cerebellar atrophy prominent cerebral sulci and ventricular system. No evidence of acute infarct, hemmorrhage or space occupying mass lesion noted. I had a TIA issue 18 years back, which lasted a few minutes and became fine. Last 17 years there was no issue. Can you please interpret the report and tell me if there is any serious problem.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read carefully your MRI report (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and would explain that it indicates small repeated strokes due to small vessel disease of the brain. For this reason, it is important for taking daily Aspirin 100 mg or 80 mg and closely monitor your blood pressure values. It is also important checking your blood lipid profile and taking statins (Atorvastatin) in case of increased cholesterol levels.
