Intracranial Stenosis: Narrowing of Intracranial Arteries  

  • Intracranial stenosis is a medical condition where the arteries in brain are narrowed due to the deposition of plaque on the inner wall of arteries. Narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the brain.  
  • Intracranial stenosis carries high risk of brain stroke, and may lead to brain damage and death
  • Atherosclerosis is a major cause of intracranial stenosis. It may begin in the age of 30 years. However, its symptoms may not be noticed for several years. Atherosclerosis damages the inner wall of arteries primarily due to high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, smoking, and increased levels of bad cholesterol in the blood. Other factors that increase the risk of intracranial stenosis include high levels of stress, heart diseases, family history, and old age.
  • Common symptom of intracranial stenosis is occurrence of transient ischemic attack (TIA). It may lead to facial weakness or droop, especially on one side, arm or leg weakness, slurred speech.
