Remote Effects of Small Deep Hemispheric Infarction on the Cortical Blood Flow -CT and 133Xe Inhalation Study
Many reports have discussed the remote effects of unilateral ischemic infarction on the cortical circulation. However in these studies,the subject was dealt with during acute phase of stroke and the infarct has been too large to analyze the circulation in the distant related area1,2,3. We investigated the remote effect of a small deep ischemic lesion on the cortical circulation in 15 patients with a lacunar infarct during the chronic phase.
