What is microvascular ischemic disease and suggest treatment?

just received result of MRI indicating probable microvascular ischemic disease . on 12/5 i suffered what the doctors at the hospital diagnosed as a TIA. However, i followed-up with a neurologist and she described a TGA which fit much closer with the event I experiend on 12/5. So, my questions are what is microvascular ischemic disease , does it fit with a TGA diagnosis and what treatment might be suggested.

Hello,

First of all, chronic diseases such as diabetes, autoimmune diseases such as SLE and atherosclerosis can cause microvascular ischemia.

Sometimes, the causes may be unknown such as Buerger"s disease.

Therefore, we should know the cause and treat it besides, taking aspirin 160 mg twice per day after meals to avoid thrombosis.

Pentoxifylline 400 g twice per day after meals can be helpful. The treatment of chronic diseases such as hypertension is crucial.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dr/Mustafa, Neurologist
