Occlusion of Middle and Anterior Cerebral Arteries
What is cerebral occlusion?
When the blood flow through the artery leading to the brain aneurysm is stopped an occlusion occurs. In some cases, it may be best to stop blood flow through the artery leading to the brain aneurysm. This is known as an occlusion.
Occlusion of the middle cerebral artery results in Middle cerebral artery syndrome, potentially showing the following defects: Paralysis (-plegia) or weakness (-paresis) of the contralateral face and arm (faciobrachial) Sensory loss of the contralateral face and arm.
Anterior cerebral arteries supply blood to the frontal lobes’ anterior (front) aspects, areas responsible for higher-level cognition, including judgment and reasoning. Blockages of these arteries can result in cerebral dementia and speech difficulties.
