True epileptic convulsions dependent on arteriosclerotic changes are also seen and are not so uncommon.
The lesions of the arteriosclerotic kidney are due to narrowing and eventual obstruction of the afferent vessels.
This might be called the arteriosclerotic high-tension group (Stone's cardiac group).
It is fortunate for the arteriosclerotic that mild grades of the disease are compatible with a fairly active life.
There is also the chronically shrunken and scarred kidney known pathologically as the arteriosclerotic kidney.
Upon the anatomical structure of the arteries depends, as a rule, the character and extent of the arteriosclerotic lesions.
These phenomena remind us of what we see in epileptic confusions, in epileptic deterioration and in arteriosclerotic dementia.
arteriosclerosis ar·te·ri·o·scle·ro·sis (är-tēr'ē-ō-sklə-rō'sĭs)
Any of a group of chronic diseases in which thickening, hardening, and loss of elasticity of the arterial walls result in impaired blood circulation. Also called arterial sclerosis.
A thickening, hardening, and loss of elasticity of the arterial walls that results in impaired blood circulation. See also atherosclerosis.
A disease commonly called hardening of the arteries. In arteriosclerosis, the walls of the arteries thicken and harden. The loss of flexibility results in a lessening of the flow of blood to the various organs of the body. (Compare atherosclerosis; see circulatory system.)
