15] EEG changes in cerebral ischaemia can be divided into four types based on cerebral blood flow.
Neither this study, nor a more recent study of 63 patients undergoing endovascular coiling of aneurysms, which showed a high false positive rate for clinically and angiographically confirmed ischaemia (123), allowed determination of the sensitivity or specificity of monitoring for the detection of cerebral ischaemia.
While fluid replacement can have favourable short-term results in correcting the hypotension and relieving the symptoms, the long-term effects can cause more serious complications such as cardiac or cerebral ischaemia.
This type of stroke occurs when a thrombus or embolus blocks cerebral blood flow resulting in cerebral ischaemia and consequently neuronal damage and cell death.

Platelets may play a role in the advancement of focal cerebral ischaemia by participating in thromboembolism and in various other ways.
These changes exacerbate the pre-existing venous engorgement and further elevate the venous pressures and subsequent hypoperfusion of the underlying cortex causing chronic cerebral ischaemia, atrophy and neurological deterioration.

In addition to studies of neuroanatomy, fibre connectivity, and brain development, DTI has also gained popularity for the investigation of brain pathologies, such as cerebral ischaemia, trauma, MS, presumed AD and cognitive impairment, epilepsy, brain tumours and metabolic disorders.
In animal models of focal cerebral ischaemia, usually induced by occlusion of the middle cerebral artery, PIDs occur around the periphery of the core territory, with electrophysiological features essentially identical with CSD, and similar capacity to propagate across cerebral cortex.
