In brief: Intervention
The most common cause of cerebral ischemia is atherosclerosis, a condition in which your arteries become clogged and hardened as a result of abnormal fatty deposits.
Treatment requires intervention to open the obstruction. This can be surgical, by percutaneous angioplasty, or use of thrombolytics.
