In this article, we have reviewed the pathophysiology and several therapeutic strategies for cerebral ischemia.

Ultimate therapies will probably involve combinations of interventions designed to block several ongoing pathophysiologic processes in neuronal death. Progress in this field will likely be slow and difficult.
