The cerebral hemispheres are supplied with blood via three major arteries: the anterior, middle, and posterior cerebral arteries. This coronal section through the frontal lobes shows hemorrhage involving the vascular territory of which of these three major cerebral arteries? Answer: The cerebral hemispheres are supplied with blood via three major arteries: the anterior, middle, and posterior... Continue Reading →
Acute Traumatic Brain Injury – Hemorrhagic Infarction
Acute traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result in a variety of hemorrhagic cerebral insults leading to brain death. This photograph depicting a brain of a person involved in a motor vehicle accident, shows a large hemorrhage in the left temporal-occipital region that 1. involves the brain tissue proper (i.e. intraparenchymal hemorrhage), 2. extends beneath the arachnoid layer of...

Life-sustaining blood is supplied to the brain by blood vessels, many of which run within the arachnoid layer covering the external surface before plunging into the deeper brain tissue. If the vessels are disturbed, either by trauma, infection, or other insults, blood may exit the vessel and collect in the subarachnoid space in a process called subarachnoid... Continue Reading →
