Atherosclerosis, hardening and narrowing of the arteries, is a disease in which plaque builds up inside arteries. Plaque hardens and narrows the arteries and may partially or totally block the bloods flow through an artery in the heart, brain, pelvis, legs, arms or kidneys. Cerebral Arteriosclerosis is the result of thickening and hardening of the walls of the arteries in the brain. Symptoms of cerebral arteriosclerosis include headache, facial pain, and impaired vision. Cerebral arteriosclerosis can lead to life threatening health events such as ischemic or hemorrhagic strokes. Cerebral arteriosclerosis is also related to a condition known as vascular dementia, in which small, symptom-free strokes cause cumulative damage and death to neurons in the brain.
