An old infarct with encephalomalacia involving parietooccipotal area. ECG shows bradycardia with T inversion limb lead 2 and 3 and chest lead 6 , probably old ischaemic changes. Syncope is due to TIA associated with cerebral atrophy and brain changes . As GCS is normal no specific treatment is required. Tab Rosuvastatin 10 mg + aspirin 75 mg can be started . Tab piracetam + citicholine for 1 month. Get an Echocardiography done and a MRI brain for further evaluation. Also get a Trop - T chest to rule out atypical M.I Stop smoking.

Old left mac territory infarct with gliosis New rt mca territory infarct periventricular , insular cortex Also history s/o seizure more favour cortical embolic stroke In view of significant low bp with bradycardia at the same time LVH in ecg high possibility of ICMP As b/l mca territory involved more likely possibility of cardioembolic stroke Need 2d echo and holter Definite treatment will be anticoagulant Conventional Vs NOAC per patient preference Vascular imaging to rule out simultaneous atherosclerosis as age and smoking history increased risk for it also
