Cerebral ischaemia - Disease of the precerebral artery Factor

The RMA has defined "precerebral artery" as meaning "extracerebral arteries supplying the brain, including the carotid artery, vertebral artery, basilar artery and ascending aorta".

Disease of the artery includes atherosclerosis, dissection, thrombosis, aneurysm or other pathological process of that artery.

Seek medical advice if it is not clear whether or not the diseased artery supplied the area of cerebral ischaemia.

 Preliminary questions [25370]

25390 there is some evidence that disease of the precerebral artery supplying the area of cerebral ischaemia may be a factor in the development of the condition under consideration, a cerebrovascular accident.

25391 the veteran has had disease of the precerebral artery supplying the area of cerebral ischaemia at some time.

25417  disease of the precerebral artery means a disease of the extracerebral arteries supplying the brain, including the carotid artery, vertebral artery, basilar artery and ascending aorta. [Default true]

25418 the veteran had the identified illness or injury, a disease of the precerebral artery supplying the area of cerebral ischaemia, at the time of the clinical onset of the condition under consideration, a cerebrovascular accident.

25392  the veteran has established the causal connection between disease of the precerebral artery supplying the area of cerebral ischaemia and VEA service for the clinical onset of cerebrovascular accident.

25393   the veteran has established the causal connection between disease of the precerebral artery supplying the area of cerebral ischaemia and operational service for the clinical onset of cerebrovascular accident.

or

25394   the veteran has established the causal connection between disease of the precerebral artery supplying the area of cerebral ischaemia and eligible service for the clinical onset of cerebrovascular accident.

Clinical onset and operational service [25393]

25396  the identified illness or injury, a disease of the precerebral artery supplying the area of cerebral ischaemia, is causally related to operational service.

Clinical onset and eligible service [25394]

25397  the identified illness or injury, a disease of the precerebral artery supplying the area of cerebral ischaemia, is causally related to eligible service.
