Cerebral ischaemia, although easily recognizable from the medical history and neurological examination, nevertheless, remains an intriguing and fascinating pathophysiological entity. Close observation of the acute stroke phase in intensive care units discloses certain similarities with the experimental observations, especially with the concept of progressive establishment of the irreversible damage, in face of an acute, sudden vascular occlusion [3].
