There is a growing body of literature suggesting that patients with atherosclerotic middle cerebral artery (MCA) stenosis are at a higher risk of future ischemic stroke, and that the risk of future cerebral ischemic events would be low if the blood flow with unilateral MCA stenosis or occlusion is compensated by circle of Willis, or by the collateral circulation from cortical artery, otherwise, the patients would suffer from cerebral ischemia and anoxaemia.
