Hi there!
Infarct means cell death due to lack of blood flow. The cells die due to lack of oxygen. Hardening of blood vessels, vasospasm all can lead to infarct. Infarcts can cause focal neurological deficits or transient ischemic attacks. If you have had no symptoms, that's good, but an old infarction may increase your risks for new infarction. It is best to discuss it with a neurologist. Hope it helps.
Take care!
