Cross-Reference Neuroradiology: THE REQUISITES, 2nd ed, pp 174–176. Comment Approximately 80% of strokes are ischemic. ’’ Types of ischemic stroke include embolic infarct, thrombotic infarct, and lacunar infarct. Infarcts of undetermined etiology may account for as many as 30% of cases of stroke. Cardiac embolism, in which a blood clot forms in the heart and travels to a vessel supplying the brain, accounts for about 20% to 30% of ischemic strokes. Recurrent strokes are most common in patients with a cardioembolic source, and these strokes have the highest 1-month mortality rate.

Cross-Reference Neuroradiology: THE REQUISITES, 2nd ed, pp 106–107. Comment Schwannomas arise most commonly along sensory nerves. In the intracranial compartment, cranial nerve VIII is most commonly involved, with neuromas of the superior vestibular nerve being slightly more common than those of the inferior vestibular nerve.

MR imaging has also shown extension of infarctions on follow-up examinations. It is identification of this ‘‘penumbra’’ (brain tissue at risk for irreversible ischemia) that is at the heart of further development of CT and MR imaging techniques. It is important to protect this tissue from ischemia by applying appropriate interventions. Furthermore, to deliver protective agents, perfusion to this tissue is necessary. Notes CASE 15 1.
