Epidemiology of ischaemic stroke subtypes: do differences in epidemiology provide evidence for a distinct lacunar arterial pathology?
(The University of Edinburgh, 2009)
Background Lacunar ischaemic stroke accounts for around one quarter of all strokes, and is presumed to result from the occlusion of a single perforating artery supplying the deep subcortical areas of the brain. The ...
Antithrombotic drug use, cerebral microbleeds and intracerebral haemorrhage: a systematic review of published and unpublished studies
(American Heart Association, 2010-06)
Background and Purpose— Cerebral microbleeds (MB) are potential risk factors for intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), but it is unclear if they are a contraindication to using antithrombotic drugs. Insights could be gained by ...
Associations of clinical stroke misclassification (‘clinical-imaging dissociation’) in acute ischemic stroke
Background: Up to 20% of lacunar infarcts are misdiagnosed as cortical infarcts clinically and vice versa. The reasons for this discrepancy are unclear. We assessed clinical and imaging features which might explain this ...
Differing risk factor profiles of ischemic stroke subtypes: evidence for a distinct lacunar arteriopathy?
(American Heart Association, 2010-04)
Background and Purpose Differences in risk factor profiles between lacunar and other ischemic stroke subtypes may provide evidence for a distinct lacunar arteriopathy, but existing studies have limitations. We overcame ...
