Right-left propensity of cardiogenic cerebral embolism in standard versus bovine aortic arch variant.

Left-hemispheric ischemic strokes are more frequent overall and often have a worse outcome than their right-hemispheric counterparts. We hypothesized that the right-left propensity of CE cerebral infarcts differs between patients with standard and bovine arch variants. We retrospectively identified all patients with acute stroke of the anterior circulation… CONTINUE READING
