Establishing the mechanism of ischemia in patients with cerebrovascular ischemia is important in determining prognosis as well as the therapeutic approach. Recurrent transient ischemic attacks in a patient with accessory middle cerebral artery described by Gao et al. pose important questions. The underlying mechanisms responsible for cerebral ischemia remain unclear. I propose some of the possible methods to elucidate the pathogenic mechanisms for optimization of treatment and secondary prevention.
