It is likely that the artery that is occluded is the PICA also known as Posterior Inferior Cerebellar Artery. This is also known as PICA. This is known as one of the main arterial blood supplies that will provide blood to the cerebellum.

This is the part of the brain that is located at the back portion. Its main goal is to make sure that it will be able to coordinate and regulate muscular activity.

This will make sure that people’s posture and balance are in good working order. If your cerebellum is working properly, you can be sure that you will have better coordination and timing.
