Population-based case-control study of white matter changes on brain imaging in transient ischemic attack and ischemic stroke.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: White matter changes (WMC) are a common finding on brain imaging and are associated with an increased risk of ischemic stroke. They are most frequent in small vessel stroke; however, in the absence of comparisons with normal controls, it is uncertain whether WMC are also more frequent than expected in other stroke subtypes. Therefore, we compared WMC in pathogenic subtypes of ischemic stroke versus controls in a population-based study. METHODS: We evaluated the presenc...Expand abstract
