Example text

Aetiology TIAs and 85% of strokes are due to atherothrombotic occlusion of a cerebral artery or cardioembolism. Neurons are extremely oxygen dependent, and an irreversible process of cell death begins if perfusion is not quickly restored. Haemorrhage accounts for 15% of strokes, mainly from primary intracerebral haemorrhage due to small vessel lipohyalinosis. This causes tissue damage through compression and reactive vasospasm. However, one-third of patients may have an underlying tumour, aneurysm or arteriovenous malformation, so further investigations should be considered for those surviving without major disability.

Secondary prevention All patients require a review of cardiovascular risk factors, particularly blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol levels.

The peak incidence (3% per annum) occurs after diabetes has been present for 10–20 years; the incidence declines thereafter. Initially, diabetic nephropathy is associated with an increased glomerular filtration rate (GFR). As nephropathy progresses, the GFR decreases and microalbuminuria (30–300 mg of albumin/ day) develops. Macroalbuminuria (>300 mg of albumin/day) and hypertension then follow as the GFR falls below the normal range. Without specific interventions, ∼80% of people with T1DM and 20–40% of people with T2DM with microalbuminuria will progress to overt albuminuria.
