Hi,
The hypoplasia of A1 segment of the right anterior cerebral artery and of the P1 segment of the right posterior cerebral artery is a congenital variation ('birth defect'), which increases the chances of ischemic stroke ( reduced blood circulation in the brain).

If I have experienced dizziness, loss of concentration, slurred speech, clumsiness, could these have anything to do with this?
Yes,these are all signs of TIA or transient ischemic attacks ( if lasted less than 24 hours without permanent damage) caused by the deformities in the cerebral arteries in your brain.
Please consult with an experienced neurosurgeon as soon as possible.
