    00:00 The superior cerebellar artery syndrome is yet another type of vascular lesion. The insult here is the superior cerebellar artery unable to deliver enough blood to this area of the pons. It also supplies the cerebellum, so there would be associated lesions with the cerebellum as well. The most prominent structure that’s going to be involved or lesioned in this syndrome is going to be the superior peduncle.

    00:34 We see that in this particular region. As mentioned, the cerebellum will also be involved since this vessel is one of the vessels that helps to supply the cerebellum with arterial blood. If we’re looking at the cerebellum and the superior cerebellar peduncle, what symptom or symptoms would result here? What we’re looking at would be ipsilateral cerebellar ataxia as a result of injury to these structures.
