Progression of carotid artery occlusion and resulting cerebral infarct (stroke) - Medical Animation
This 3D stock medical animation shows the progression of a left carotid artery occlusion which results in a cerebral infarct (stroke). The animation opens with a generic (blue) figure with the brain and major arteries shown. The camera then zooms into a detailed cut-section through the left carotid artery bifurcation. As blood flows to the brain, an occlusion forms cutting off the circulation resulting in the subsequent death of the brain tissue.
