    It seems to me that the sentence is incomplete:

    "Whether a cerebral infarction is thrombotic or embolic based" is simply a clause, the author appears forgetting the verb and the object of the sentence.

    But I am not sure.

    Thanks in advance
    *********************
    Whether a cerebral infarction is thrombotic or embolic based, its pathophysiology, or the observed conditions and underlying mechanisms of the disease. In thrombotic ischemic stroke, a thrombus forms and blocks blood flow.[8] A thrombus forms when the endothelium is activated by a variety of signals to result in platelet aggregation in the artery.

    You are right, NewAmerica, something is missing - certainly more than just one word. It is not a complete sentence.
