A venous brain infarction occurs when brain tissue is prevented from receiving blood, which can result in very rapid cell death, brain damage, stroke, and even death. A clot can form in a cerebral vein and keep blood from draining out of the brain, which can lead to a buildup of pressure and sometime hemorrhaging. The blockage can also keep oxygen and nutrients from reaching areas of the brain beyond the thrombosis. Symptoms of a venous brain infarction are consistent with those of a stroke and can include dizziness, motor skill and vision impairment, headaches, and nausea, yet usually have a much slower onset. People who are at a higher risk for brain infarctions include those who smoke, have higher cholesterol, or are on a medication that may cause blood clotting. Treatments for venous brain infarctions focus on increasing blood flow to the affected area as well as treating the cause of the infarction, which can range from cholesterol clots to an infection.
