Most of the time, watershed infarcts (WIs) involve steno-occlusive carotid disease. The pathophysiological mechanism could be predicted by their pattern: internal WIs (IWIs) are thought to be due to hemodynamic impairment in contrast to cortical WIs (CWIs), which are more likely to be caused by microembolic phenomena.… Read More...
