In brief: Basilar for brainstm

The top of the basilar artery is like a fork in the road.
When a blood clot affects this area, small strokes can occur in the brainstem, causing numbness, weakness, trouble talking, eye symptoms, or impaired consciousness, and sometimes, more than one stroke occurs at the same time.
