  • [Title] Posterior cerebral artery infarction: diffusion-weighted MRI analysis of 205 patients.
  • 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.
  • Large artery atherosclerosis (LAA, 42.4%) was the most frequent etiology, followed by cardiogenic embolism (20%), small-vessel occlusion (20%), undetermined (18%) and other determined (3%) etiology.
  • In these patients, stroke mechanisms included atheromatous branch occlusion (n = 19), in situ thrombotic occlusion (n = 11) and artery-to-artery embolism (n = 8).

  • [Title] Microembolic signals in acute posterior circulation cerebral ischemia: sources and consequences.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The clinical significance of microembolic signals (MES) in the posterior circulation remains unclear.
  • The aim of this study was to investigate the sources and consequences of MES in acute posterior circulation cerebral ischemia.
  • METHODS: We evaluated a total of 140 consecutive patients (93 males, mean age 62.9 years) who had acute posterior circulation cerebral ischemia.
  • The MES monitoring was conducted at the basilar artery through the suboccipital window for a 30-minute period.
  • Intracranial vertebrobasilar artery (VBA) stenosis was independently associated with the presence of MES (odds ratio, 9.85; 95% confidence interval, 1.22-79.48; P=0.032), whereas the patients with vertebral artery stenosis that was limited to the extracranial portion did not show an association.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In acute posterior circulation cerebral ischemia, intracranial and severe VBA stenosis is associated with MES and may be its root causes.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Risk factors and stroke mechanisms in atherosclerotic stroke: intracranial compared with extracranial and anterior compared with posterior circulation disease.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate differences in risk factors and stroke mechanisms between intracranial atherosclerosis (ICAS) and extracranial atherosclerosis (ECAS) and between anterior and posterior circulation atherosclerosis.
  • Stroke mechanisms were categorized as artery-to-artery embolism, in situ thrombo-occlusion, local branch occlusion, or hemodynamic impairment.
  • Age (odds ratio [OR], 1.033; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.018-1.049), male gender (OR, 3.399; 95% CI, 2.335-4.949), and hyperlipidemia (OR, 1.502; 95% CI, 1.117-2.018) were factors favoring ECAS (vs ICAS), whereas hypertension (OR, 1.826; 95% CI, 1.274-2.618; P=0.001) and diabetes mellitus (OR, 1.490; 95% CI, 1.105-2.010; P=0.009) were related to posterior (vs anterior) circulation diseases.
  • Metabolic syndrome was a factor related to ICAS (vs ECAS) only in posterior circulation strokes (OR, 2.433; 95% CI, 1.005-5.890; P=0.007).
  • Stroke mechanisms included arterytoartery embolism (59.7%), local branch occlusion (14.9%), in situ thrombo-occlusion (13.7%), hemodynamic impairment (0.9%), and mixed (10.8%).
  • Anterior ICAS was more often associated with artery-to-artery embolism (51.8% vs 34.0%) and less often associated with local branch occlusion (12.3% vs 40.4%) than posterior ICAS (P<0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of risk factors and stroke mechanisms differ between ICAS and ECAS, and between anterior and posterior circulation atherosclerosis.
  • Posterior ICAS seems to be closely associated with metabolic derangement and local branch occlusion.

  • [Title] Retrograde embolism from the descending aorta: visualization by multidirectional 3D velocity mapping in cryptogenic stroke.
  • Multidirectional 3D MRI velocity mapping of the aorta was performed to correlate the extent of retrograde diastolic blood flow with the distance of complex DAo plaques from the left subclavian artery (LSA).
  • Embolic risk from the DAo was present for (1) retrograde flow connecting complex DAo plaques with the LSA, (2) embolic pattern of brain ischemia in a territory supplied by the left vertebral artery, and (3) stroke that could not be explained by other means.
  • In 4 of these 20 patients (20%) with an embolic stroke in the territory of the brain stem, cerebellum or posterior cerebral artery, etiology could not be explained by other means.

  • Although embolism and hypoperfusion may well occur concurrently in a non-negligible proportion of cerebral infarction patients, there is currently lack of proof, especially in the posterior circulation.
  • Here, we are reporting on a case of multiple cerebral infarctions in a patient with neurofibromatosis type 1, multiple vascular abnormalities of the posterior cerebral circulation and intracranial artery occlusion.
  • We hypothesize that cerebral blood flow impairment may have affected the clearance and destination of embolic particles.

  • BACKGROUND: To determine the role of small vertebrobasilar artery (SVBA) in patients with posterior circulation stroke (PCS), we evaluated the ischemic patterns, collateral features, and stroke mechanisms in PCS patients with SVBA.
  • RESULTS: Ischemic lesions were predominantly observed in the cerebellum and/or medulla (vertebral artery (VA) territory).
  • All subjects had fetal posterior circulation (FPC) from the internal carotid artery to the posterior cerebral artery.
  • In 14 patients (77.8%), long circumferential artery (LCA) was prominently observed.
  • In atherothrombotic patients, infratentorial PCS might occur following artery-to-artery embolism from the low-flowed or stenotic VA to LCA.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cardioembolic stroke: Protective effect of a severe internal carotid artery stenosis in a patient with cardiac embolism.
  • Cardioembolic stroke is generally caused by intracranial artery occlusion.
  • We describe a patient with cardioembolic ischemic stroke in the right hemisphere in whom a left internal carotid artery stenosis paradoxically protected the ipsilateral hemisphere from distal intracranial embolism.
  • The patient also presented multiple acute ischemic embolic lesions in the right middle cerebral artery territory and in the right occipital lobe, which was fed by the posterior cerebral artery, anomally originating from the right carotid siphon.
  • Interestingly, the left internal carotid artery--which showed a severe preexisting stenosis--was occluded by the cardiac clot, whereas the right internal carotid artery only presented a moderate stenosis that had probably allowed the clots to pass.
  • Therefore, the severe left internal carotid artery stenosis may have blocked the cardiac embolus, preventing it from reaching the ipsilateral hemisphere.

  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Despite numerous studies, the role of patent foramen ovale (PFO) as a risk factor for stroke due to paradoxical embolism is still controversial.
  • METHODS: The records of 486 patients with diagnosis of cerebral ischaemia were reviewed.
  • Affected vascular territories were divided into anterior cerebral artery, middle cerebral artery, vertebrobasilar artery system including posterior cerebral artery, brain stem and cerebellar stroke, and strokes occurring in more than one territory.
  • CONCLUSION: We found no association between an ischaemic lesion pattern that is considered as being typical for stroke due to cardiac embolism and the existence of PFO.
  • Therefore, our findings do not provide any support for the common theory of paradoxical embolism as a major cause of stroke in PFO carriers.

  • Repeated imaging of the heart and cerebral vessels missed a very small abnormality arising from the posterior wall of the internal carotid artery, until it was diagnosed by computed tomographic angiography.
  • This is problematic because by North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial (NASCET) criteria, minimal stenosis essentially excludes the carotid artery as an embolic source.

  • A woman presented with 75% stenosis of the right internal carotid artery (ICA) with extension to the origin of a persistent hypoglossal artery (PHA).
  • The PHA is a rare fetal variant of carotid-basilar anastomosis that elevates the risk of ischemia and embolic infarction within the posterior cerebral circulation in patients with carotid disease proximal to the anastomosis.
  • Additionally, a novel treatment approach was employed by stenting and angioplasty while protecting both the anterior and posterior cerebral circulations.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 64 year old male with medical history of hypertension, coronary artery disease and chronic atria fibrillation, underwent radiofrequency ablation 10 days back, was admitted to hospital for declining mental status and fever for 5 days.
  • CTA Chest revealed 9 - 10 mm wide ulceration of left atrium posterior wall communicating with distal esophagus at T7 level.
  • CT Head showed multiple non specific cerebral lesions in left and right occipital and left frontal-parietal regions.
  • DISCUSSION: CT Chest with IV contrast is the best diagnostic modality which may reveal multiple findings, not limited to contrast presence in esophagus or mediastenum but may also show pneumo mediastenum, intra-atria air, posterior left atria wall thickening.
  • Procedures like Trans-esophageal echocardiography and esophagoscopy result in air embolism.
  • High radiofrequency pulses delivered to the mid-portion of posterior wall of left atrium where there is disproportionate and less fatty layer, predispose the development of atrio-esophageal fistula.
  • Procedural measures like left atrium posterior wall monitoring by the use of intra-cardiac echocardiography, use of esophageal temperature probe, moving the lines to the roof or decreasing the radiofrequency power while ablating the posterior wall of LA were studied with a reasonable success to avoid injury.
