The latter is classified based on the cerebral artery affected or the size of the infarct, with four main subtypes used in literature that accurately predict the site and size of the lesion in approximately three-quarters of cases (Aerden et al., 2004): (a) total anterior circulation infarct (TACI), (b) partial anterior circulation infarct (PACI), (c) lacunar infarct (LACI), and (d) posterior circulation infarct (POCI) (Bamford, Sandercock, Dennis, Warlow, & Burn, 1991).
