Approximately 20 percent of all strokes will occur in the Infratentorial brain. This is within the vascular territory of the posterior vascular circulation. Very few clinical specifics are known about the therapeutic needs of this patient sub-population. Most evidence-based practices are founded from research about the treatment of anterior circulatory stroke. As a consequence, little is known about how stroke in the Infratentorial brain region would require a different approach. We characterized the neurovascular features of Infratentorial stroke, pathophysiological responses, and experimental models for further translational study.
