Thalamic Infarcts in the System of Artery of Percheron: Clinical Picture and Diagnosis

L.A. Fursova, D.V. Naumenko

Abstract


The paper presents the features of the blood supply of the thalamus and clinical picture of occlusion of the artery of Percheron. Particular attention is paid to the differential diagnosis of paramedian thalamic infarcts. It is shown that for the clinical objectification of complex neurological and neuropsychological impairments it’s necessary to use MRI methods.


Keywords
