Lenticulostriate infarct

Last revised by Yuranga Weerakkody on 1 Jun 2021

Lenticulostriate infarcts are lacunar infarcts resulting from occlusion of single lenticulostriate perforating arteries


They should not be confused with striatocapsular infarcts that represent larger strokes resulting from occlusion of multiple lenticulostriate arteries.
