BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although cardiac embolism has been shown to be the leading stroke mechanism of posterior cerebral artery (PCA) territory infarction, intrinsic PCA atherosclerotic disease may play a more important role in regions where intracranial diseases are prevalent. We aimed to assess the etiologies and stroke pattern of PCA territory infarction in a Korean population. METHOD We reviewed consecutive patients with acute PCA territory infarction who underwent diffusion-weighted MRI… CONTINUE READING
