Objective: Although there are numerous animal models of cerebral ischemia induced by large intracranial artery occlusion, no entirely satisfactory model of lacunar infarction is available. We have developed a rodent model of lacunar infarction induced by photothrombotic occlusion of the small vessels[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
