Cerebral microvascular angiopathy (MVA) is associated with clinical vascular risk factors and is characterised by histological changes, including thickening of the walls of arterial vessels and dilatation of the Virchow-Robin spaces (VRS). We have previously described two novel biomarkers of MVA based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), VRS dilatation and abnormalities in the transfer of systolic arterial pulsation to the ventricular CSF, which occur as a result of decreased cerebral arterial… Expand
Aortic Pulsatility Propagates Intracranially and Correlates with Dilated Perivascular Spaces and Small Vessel Compliance.
TLDR
The hypothesis that increased arterial pulsatility resulting from central arterial stiffness propagates directly into cerebral vessels and is associated with the development of microvascular angiopathy, characterized by dilated PVS and decreased compliance of small arterial vessels is supported.

Cerebrovascular Damage in Late-Life Depression Is Associated With Structural and Functional Abnormalities of Subcutaneous Small Arteries
TLDR
Despite similar cardiovascular profiles, depressed patients with cerebral microvascular damage show abnormalities of subcutaneous small artery structure and function in patients with late-life depression. Expand
Understanding the role of the perivascular space in cerebral small vessel disease
TLDR
It is proposed that widening of PVS suggests presence of peri-vascular cell debris and other waste products that form part of a vicious cycle involving impaired cerebrovascular reactivity, blood-brain barrier dysfunction, perivascular inflammation and ultimately impaired clearance of waste proteins from the interstitial fluid space, leading to accumulation of toxins, hypoxia, and tissue damage.

TLDR
This brief review will focus on neuroimaging evidence and summarise the appearances, risk factors and associations of different components of cerebral small vessel disease as identified on imaging, discuss potential causes and, in particular, the evidence that disordered blood-brain barrier precipitates or worsens progression of cerebralsmall vessel disease.

Vascular mechanisms in late-life depressive disorder
There is growing evidence to suggest that vascular disease plays an important role in late life depressive disorder. The aim of this study was to characterize vascular impairment in late lifeExpand
MRI-visible perivascular spaces as an imaging biomarker in Fabry disease
Fabry disease (FD) is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder resulting in vascular glycosphingolipid accumulation and increased stroke risk. MRI findings associated with FD include white matterExpand
Primary Open Angle Glaucoma is Associated with MR Biomarkers of Cerebral Small Vessel Disease
TLDR
MR evidence of cerebral small vessel disease is strongly associated with a diagnosis of POAG and with the severity of abnormalities in CDR and visual field. Expand
Imaging the Perivascular Space as a Potential Biomarker of Neurovascular and Neurodegenerative Diseases
TLDR
This review describes some of the recent pre-clinical findings from basic science that shed light on the potential neurophysiological mechanisms driving glymphatic and perivascular waste clearance in neurodegenerative and neurovascular diseases and describes the possible clinical implications of ePVS.

Dilated Perivascular Spaces in the Basal Ganglia Are a Biomarker of Small-Vessel Disease in a Very Elderly Population with Dementia
TLDR
Dilated perivascular spaces remain a valuable biomarker of small-vessel disease in an elderly population of patients with dementia. Expand

Dilatation of the Virchow-Robin space is a sensitive indicator of cerebral microvascular disease: study in elderly patients with dementia.
TLDR
VRS dilatation is common in diseases associated with microvascular abnormality and can be used as a diagnostic tool to differentiate vascular dementias from degenerative dementias. Expand
Relationship of deep white matter hyperintensities and cerebral blood flow in severe carotid artery stenosis
TLDR
The severity of LA is greater in patients with severe carotid stenosis but is not correlated to reductions in CBF, which suggests that microvascular abnormality is the dominant pathogenetic factor in LA even in the presence of severe stenotic/occlusive large vessel disease. Expand
Abnormalities of CSF flow patterns in the cerebral aqueduct in treatment‐resistant late‐life depression: A potential biomarker of microvascular angiopathy
TLDR
The hypothesis that MR measurement of CSF flow abnormalities provides a biomarker of MVA, and thus could have application in a wide range of age‐related diseases, is supported. Expand
Asymptomatic Cerebrovascular Disease and Systemic Diagnosis in Stroke, Atherothrombosis as a Disease of the Vascular Tree
TLDR
There is an increasing need to identify and understand the risk factors or vascular disease risk markers, so that the stratification of risk of an individual patient or in a specific population can be established, appropriate cerebrovascular assessments conducted, and appropriate therapeutic intervention initiated.

TLDR
Spontaneous cerebral emboli were significantly associated with both Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia and may represent a potentially preventable or treatable cause of dementia. Expand

TLDR
Reduced venous sinus pulsatility is a marker of intracranial hypertension secondary to raised venous Sinus pressure when suspicion of IIH or SIH exists and the MR venogram is difficult to interpret, raised total blood flow indicates IIH, whereas reduced SSS flow indicates SIH. Expand
Relationship between periventricular or deep white matter lesions and arterial elasticity indices in very old people.
TLDR
In very old, apparently healthy subjects, both large and small artery elasticity indices were inversely related to the severity of cerebral white matter lesions on magnetic resonance imaging. Expand

TLDR
Compared and contrast the blood-flow and fluid-pulsatility characteristics of leukoaraiosis and normal-pressure hydrocephalus, which show cortical vein compliance is initially increased but in severe leukoarsiniaosis and NPH it is reduced. Expand
Virchow-Robin space dilatation may predict resistance to antidepressant monotherapy in elderly patients with depression.
TLDR
VRS dilatation is common in diseases associated with microvascular abnormality, which is the presumed basis of vascular depression in the elderly, and VRS score may be useful in determining which patients are less likely to respond to antidepressant monotherapy. Expand
Relationships between arteriosclerosis, cerebral amyloid angiopathy and myelin loss from cerebral cortical white matter in Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
Pathological processes leading to white matter damage, in terms of ML at least, in AD are likely to be heterogeneous, and the association between the extent of CAA and ART suggests shared risk factors for each pathological change. Expand
