Watershed infarction

Watershed infarction, or cerebral watershed infarction (WI), refers to the cerebral infarction that occurs at the junction of the two main arteries of the brain, mostly in the junction of the larger arteries of the brain. Because it is mainly located in the marginal zone brain tissue between the large cortical artery supply areas and between the small artery supply areas in the basal nucleus area, it is also called marginal zone cerebral infarction.
