Atherosclerosis and hypertension - is inseparable bond

Atherosclerosis and hypertension - is inseparable bond
Hypertension may occur in adolescence, but often the disease does not manifest itself for a long time and not only leads to serious complications, and death.Atherosclerosis and hypertension are interrelated.

High blood pressure often occurs in the teenage years, like most cardiovascular disease.Hypertension and atherosclerosis, and stroke - the most important causes of disability and premature death.

atherosclerotic heart disease

One of the most serious problems associated with undetected timely hypertension - atherosclerosis, which causes vascular disease.

Often hypertension occurs without clinical signs, so many years, you may not even be aware of its presence.

When blood pressure increase there is a narrowing of the arteries - a kind of compensatory response of the body: the higher the pressure, the greater the resistance of blood vessels.Afflicted

over time an increased pressure, the artery is narrowed, and thus, restricts or blocks blood flow to the heart muscle, which deprives the heart o

f oxygen.In addition, the narrowing of the arteries increases the risk of thrombosis - many small blood clots.

total defeat of the arteries in atherosclerosis is rare.Usually there is a defeat of the brain vessels, heart, kidneys and feet.

Signs of heart vessels atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis of coronary arteries usually have no symptoms until an artery is narrowed not restrict blood flow heart.In this case, you can feel chest pain - a symptom of coronary heart disease.

Atherosclerosis cerebrovascular

Recently, more and more prevalent atherosclerosis of brain arteries, striking intra- and extracranial vessels feeding the brain.Against the background of cerebrovascular atherosclerosis, a gradual deterioration of the central nervous system, possibly a stroke or developing mental disorders.

Symptoms of cerebral arteriosclerosis

severity of symptoms depends on the degree of vascular lesion.Atherosclerosis two carotid and two vertebral arteries that supply blood to the brain, can significantly affect the functioning of the brain.

initial symptoms of atherosclerosis of brain arteries may be:

  • sensory loss or decline in one half of the body,
  • movement disorders (paresis and paralysis),
  • speech disorders, vision, hearing.

These symptoms, however, are short-lived and after a while.

Amid pronounced atherosclerosis of cerebral vessels can develop stroke - site necrosis of the brain tissue.Stroke is always manifested persistent symptoms (numbness, speech, paralysis), which is only marginally treatable.

other manifestations cerebrovascular atherosclerosis may be loss of memory and intellectual abilities, sleep disturbances, changes in the nature (the patient becomes moody, picky), may develop depression.
