In this article, we have reviewed the pathophysiology and several therapeutic strategies for cerebral ischemia. It seems likely that there will never be simple therapeutic answers to the complex pathophysiology of cerebral ischemia as we now understand it. 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.
