English term or phrase: right MCA infarct
Mrs XX had a right MCA infarct in September 2007.
Presently she is doing physiotherapy to recover movement on her left side. She can walk for around 5 metres with help of a walking stick and a lot of effort.

Looking in Google I found that MCA stands for "Middle Cerebral Artery".
How could I translate "right MCA infarct" into Portuguese from Portugal?

Thank you.

Explanation:
MCA = middle cerebral artery

Relatamos o caso de uma doente de 36 anos que apresentou oclusão de um aneurisma fusiforme de artéria basilar associado a infarto pontino e dois episódios de hemorragia subaracnóide provavelmente devido a dissecção arterial. Ela também apresentava aneurismas fusiformes assintomáticos na artéria cerebral média direita e na artéria carótida interna esquerda. Ao longo de 5 anos, lesões compatíveis com displasia fibromuscular foram observadas na artéria vertebral direita, assim como oclusão da artéria vertebral esquerda. Esta combinação de lesões sugere que um mecanismo etiopatogênico comum tenha causado diferentes graus de comprometimento da camada média de artérias cervicocranianas.
