    At Mass General Hospital, Susanne Janneke van Veluw, gives an impressive explanation of the pathophysiology of microinfarts and microbleeds due to CAA. Microinfarts seem to come from blood vessels that retain amyloid-beta, lose smooth muscle cells, and therefore become stiff–possibly leading to an infart. Microbleeds seem to occur when cells lose both amyloid-beta and smooth […]
