Stroke is the leading cause of disability and a major cause of death in Germany and the western world. Ischemic stroke involves different pathophysiologic mechanisms such as thromboembolic vascular occlusion, cerebral micro- or macroangiopathy, extracranial arterial stenosis, and cardiac embolism. Experimental and clinical studies have shown that arteriogenesis, the adaptive growth of pre-existing collateral arteries, can be therapeutically enhanced in peripheral circulation and the heart.
