Hmmm, I can only guess at what one physician would mean by that term.

Subacute - less than full-blown.  Mild. Temporary  (all of these are possible meanings)

Ischemia - lack of blood flow or decreased blood flow.

To me it indicates that there has been an area of tissue that had it's supply of blood decreased and was injured.  But by indicating subacute, the damage may have been reversible or only caused temporary symptoms.

Does this help?  Quix

My father aged 75 suddenly went unconscious 2 years back, had fall with head injury. He was admitted to hospital - MRI says narrowing of blood vessels to brain. Ever since fall has loss of balance, loss of coordination, difficulty in sitting,standing,walking,dullness. Thrice he felt near fainting with sweating. His blood sugar fluctuates. Also his BP has difference between sitting and standing, whenever he changes position feels giddiness. New MRI report today says - "early subacute   ischemic foci in the left MCA  and right MCA - PCA watershed territories". Kindly explain us.
Thanks
