Encephalopathy: Ischemia is tissue damage from poor blood flow. If blood flow cannot be restored by stenting a blocked vessel, then usually we focus on managing cholesterol, blood pressure and other conditions which damage blood vessels like diabetes and smoking. A neurology consultation is needed.
