Structural, stenotic changes and anatomical features of the cerebral vessels in patients with hypertension with low and medium level of total cardiovascular risk according to data of multidetector computed tomographic angiography
53 patients with arterial hypertension (AH) with low and medium level of total cardiovascular risk (TCR) were examined by using the 4-slice scanner and 128 slice scanner to detect the features of anatomical, structural and stenotic changes of cerebral vessels, according to multidetector computed tomographic (MDCT) angiography data. MDCT-semiotics of cerebral blood vessels changes in patients with hypertension manifested varying degrees of stenosis of the vertebral artery(VA). Frequent changes were seen in anterior (ACA), posterior cerebral (PCA) and the posterior communicating arteries (PcA), which usually manifest varying degrees of stenotic narrowing and sometimes tortuous course. Were widespread structural and stenotic changes of internal carotid artery (ICA). MDCT- angiography is a highly informative method to research the changes of the cerebral vessels in the patients with AH.
