For this reason these events are often used as measures of atheroma. ' , I s the i nci dence of strokes and the increasing or decreasing frequency of TIAs an adequate measure of atheroma in the cerebral arteries? ' Atheroma and completed strokes Pathological observations lead us to equate cerebral haemorrhage with hypertensive vascular disease which produces fibrinoid necrosis of arterioles and the formation of miliary aneurysms of Charcot-Bouchard type. Cerebral infarction on the other hand is usually thought to be associated with thrombosis which in turn takes place against a background of atheroma.

6 A 1acune cannot therefore be taken as necessarily indicative of hypertensive vascular disease, some may be embolic. The fact that a lacune is embolic does not mean it is a consequence of atheroma; some embolic infarcts will be associated with atheroma, some will not. Atheroma and transient ischaemic attacks If strokes cannot readily be equated with atheroma what of transient ischaemic attacks (TIAs)? Here again there has been a tendency to equate TIAs with atheroma of the internal carotid artery.
