Intracranial Atherosclerosis leads to ischemic stroke. It is developed by the formation of atherosclerotic plaques within walls of intracranial arteries.The advanced stage of intracranial atherosclerosis is intracranial stenosis.
High resolution Magnetic resonance Imaging (MRI) and intravascular ultrasound are the diagnostic approaches for detecting intracranial atherosclerotic plaques.
Symptoms include facial weakness, numbness of arm or leg on one side and slurred speech. Medications are given to lower cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
