What’s Middle Cerebral Artery Stroke?

Q:

What’s middle cerebral artery stroke?

A:

Middle cerebral artery is by far the largest cerebral artery and is the vessel most commonly affected by cerebrovascular accident. The MCA supplies most of the outer convex brain surface, nearly all the basal ganglia, and the posterior and anterior internal capsules. Infarcts that occur within the vast distribution of this vessel lead to diverse neurologic sequelae. Understanding these neurologic deficits and their correlation to specific MCA territories has long been researched.

Middle cerebral artery is the most site for the occurrence of ischemic stroke. The middle cerebral artery lesions mostly affect the dominant hemisphere, such as the left cerebral hemisphere.
