To assess peculiarities of cerebral blood flow in patients with hypoplasia of vertebral artery, 100 patients were examined. Patients after acute ischemic stroke, chronic ischemic diseases, and a group of healthy patients were separated. In patients with acute ischemic stroke, a reliable decrease was found in the degree of blood flow increment in the posterior cerebral artery at rhythmic photostimulation, as well as in the total volume blood flow in the vertebral-basilar basin.
