Inﬂammatory markers in the plaque and the systemic circulation are currently under study for their role in triggering symptoms in patients with atherosclerosis. 9 Extra-cerebral Artery Dissection Extra-cerebral artery dissection is commonly responsible for stroke in young persons, including children. In adults, dissections tear the intima, and blood enters the wall of the vessel between the intima and the media. This blood causes the vessel wall to balloon outward, and compresses the lumen. If stroke results from this condition, it is most often caused by embolus; a thrombus forms at the tear site and is swept up the vessel into the brain.
Increases in right-sided pressures, which can occur with pulmonary embolism or the Valsalva maneuver, increase blood ﬂow from right to left atrium. PFO has been detected with increased incidence (up to 40%) in young persons with stroke. It is thought that venous clots in the leg or pelvic veins loosen and travel to the right atrium, and then cross to the left side of the heart causing embolic stroke. This conclusion is supported when stroke occurs in the context of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolus (PE) in a patient with PFO.
The role of mitral valve prolapse in stroke remains controversial. Strands of ﬁlamentous material attached to the mitral valve seen by echocardiography have recently been reported as a risk factor for embolic stroke. 4 Patent Foramen Ovale Patent foramen ovale (PFO) occurs in approximately 27% of the population. Though the left-sided pressures are usually higher that those on the right, the ﬂow of venous blood toward the foramen ovale can direct some blood to the left side of the heart. Increases in right-sided pressures, which can occur with pulmonary embolism or the Valsalva maneuver, increase blood ﬂow from right to left atrium.
