Left middle cerebral artery M2 segment ■■ Overview Incidence Stroke is currently the number one cause of adult disability and the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Approximately 750,000 new and recurrent cases of stroke occur annually in the United States, and nearly 80% of these are ischemic strokes; of these, 70% are referable to the anterior circulation. The middle cerebral artery distribution accounts for 90% of anterior circulation ischemic infarcts. 1 In addition, anterior circulation strokes can be due to thrombus formation superimposed in an existing plaque or intimal flap (in the case of arterial dissection), or de novo due to a hypercoagulable state.

Endovascular treatment is only considered in patients who are not candidates for, or fail, IV rtPA and have imaging to suggest viable penumbra. • Remember that both extracranial and intracranial vascular imaging is important in understanding the best treatment for stroke syndromes; for example, you don’t want to treat a critical cervical carotid stenosis and not realize that there is a concomitant MCA occlusion that also needs to be addressed, or, just as importantly, you don’t want to treat acute carotid occlusion if the patient is neurologically intact and all intracranial arteries are patent due to a complete circle of Willis.
