Post-ischemic vasodynamic changes in infarcted brain parenchyma are common and range from hypo- to hyperperfusion. In the present study, appearance of the lenticulostriate arteries (LSAs) on postinterventional 3T time-of-flight (TOF)-MRA suggestive for altered post-stroke vasodynamics following thrombectomy was investigated. Patients who underwent… CONTINUE READING
