Description Ischemic cerebrovascular disease can be produced by thrombosis, embolism, and decreased systemic perfusion. It is often classified by stroke etiology rather than by mechanism. The factors that contribute to an ischemic stroke are both environmental and genetic. Recognition of specific environmental factors that predispose to stroke in a particular patient may affect that patients prognosis both before and after a stroke has occurred. Many genetic disorders also are associated with anin creased risk of stroke. Some are transmitted as simple mendelian disorders (i.e., single gene defects); whereas others are caused by chromosomal disorders, have a multifactorial genetic basis, or probably are inherited insome fashionas yet undiscovered.
