MRI Brain T2W FLAIR hyperintensities

My sisters MRI shows the following
"T2W, FLAIR hyperintensities in bilateral parieto-occipital lobes, splenium of corpus callosum, right basal ganglia, left frontal lobe, left cerebellar hemisphere and left medulla- secondary to vascular insult - likely acute / subacute infarcts"

What is the meaning. She had undergone VP shunt one week back but not recovered her conciousness yet. Can you explain these?????
