Brief Answer:
Possibility of stroke due to hypercoagulability

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and reports and understand your concern.
The involved area of infraction is large and extending to vascular territory.
Coagulation profile is also abnormal and may be the cause of such infarction.
Cardiac evaluation should be done.
Not likely to be due to trauma or vaccum application.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further information.
