Permeability and Immunohistochemical Studies of Brain in Chronic Hypertension
A common finding in humans with chronic hypertension is the presence of multifocal areas of old necrosis located in the basal ganglia region and the cerebral cortex principally in the boundary zones between the 3 major cerebral arteries16,4. Similar lesions have been observed in the various models of chronic hypertension developed to study the human disease2,15,13. The pathogenesis of these lesions generally referred to as microinfarcts is uncertain. Suggested mechanisms include vascular occlusion4 and spasm of penetrating arterioles2.
