BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The lesion patterns and mechanisms of ischemic stroke caused by extracranial internal carotid artery (EICA) stenosis are well understood. The prognosis of intracranial internal carotid artery (IICA) stenosis is very poor. However, little is known about lesion patterns and mechanisms of cerebral infarcts caused by IICA stenosis. The objective of this study was to investigate the lesion patterns and mechanisms of infarcts produced by severe IICA stenosis and compare it with… CONTINUE READING
