    Stroke can be categorized as ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, and subarachnoid hemorrhage. Awakening with or experiencing the abrupt onset of focal neurologic deficits is the hallmark of ischemic stroke diagnosis. The most common presenting symptoms for ischemic stroke are difficulty...

    The classical "lacunar hypothesis" based on pathological and CT studies states that particular clinical syndromes - "lacunar syndromes" - are caused by small (<15 mm) subcortical infarcts due to the occlusion of a small perforating artery. In many cases however the clinical syndromes are not...
