Etiology and Risk Factors of Posterior Circulation Infarction Compared with Anterior Circulation Infarction.

Many clinicians regard posterior circulation infarction (PCI) as different from anterior circulation infarction (ACI), leading them to apply different...

Hyperintense Acute Reperfusion Marker on FLAIR in Posterior Circulation Infarction.
In the present study, we aimed to investigate the frequency of blood brain barrier injury in posterior circulation infarction as demonstrated by the hyperintense acute reperfusion marker (HARM) on fluid attenuated inversion recovery images (FLAIR).

Malignant cerebral edema after large anterior circulation infarction: a review.
Malignant infarction implies a large middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke that leads to rapid clinical deterioration and edema formation, and can be associated with hemorrhagic transformation, herniation, and poor functional outcomes, including death.

The ABCD2 score is better for stroke risk prediction after anterior circulation TIA compared to posterior circulation TIA.
Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) are divided into anterior and posterior circulation types (AC-TIA, PC-TIA, respectively). In the present study, we sought to evaluate the ABCD2 score for predicting stroke in either AC-TIA or PC-TIA.

Stroke etiology is associated with outcome in posterior circulation stroke.
Stroke research and clinical trials have focused mainly on anterior circulation stroke (ACS). Since clinical characteristics, mechanisms, and outcomes of posterior circulation stroke (PCS) have been reported different from ACS, more PCS studies are r

Recurrent posterior circulation infarction caused by anomalous occipital bony process in a young patient.
Structural anomaly of the cervical spine or craniocervical junction has been reported as one of the rare causes of ischemic stroke. We report a case of a young patient with recurrent posterior circulation infarction that may have been associated with

Perfusion-diffusion Mismatch Predicts Early Neurological Deterioration in Anterior Circulation Infarction without Thrombolysis.
Perfusion-diffusion mismatch in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) represents the non-core hypoperfused area in acute ischemic stroke. The mismatch has been used to predict clinical response after thrombolysis in acute ischemic stroke, but its role for
