Family history of stroke does not predict risk of stroke after transient ischemic attack.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Animal models suggest a genetic contribution to cerebral susceptibility to ischemia. Family history of stroke (FHxstroke) is a risk factor for ischemic stroke, but there is significant confounding by heritability of hypertension and other intermediate phenotypes, and it is uncertain whether genetic factors have a direct independent influence on cerebral susceptibility to ischemia in man. METHODS: We related detailed FHxstroke to baseline characteristics and subsequent...
