It has been postulated that microemboli which might originate from unstable atherosclerotic plaques are prone to lodge at the hypoperfused borderzone where the low-flow circulation fails to wash out the emboli. The absence of effective collaterals further impedes the clearance of the microemboli. Clinical features The clinical presentation of BI is diverse. Small discrete BI may be clinically silent or manifest as transient ischemic attacks or lacunar syndromes. Depending on the extent of permanent ischemic injury, BI can be described as partial or confluent based on neuroimaging (see ‘Investigation’ below).
Shah and Bruce Ovbiagele UCLA School of Medicine, Los Angeles, USA Introduction A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is classically defined as a transient, sudden-onset neurological deficit due to brain or retinal ischemia that lasts less than 24 hours. TIAs usually involve focal loss of neurological function and typically are less than 1 hour in duration. The 24-hour time cutoff is an historical, arbitrary time point that was chosen to distinguish patients who likely had no tissue injury from those who had brain infarction or stroke.
