|Title:||Risk factors for lacunar stroke: a case-control transesophageal echocardiographic study.||Austin Authors:||Kazui, S;Levi, Christopher R;Jones, Elizabeth F ;Quang, L;Calafiore, Paul ;Donnan, Geoffrey A||Affiliation:||National Stroke Research Institute, Austin & Repatriation Medical Centre, Victoria, Australia||Issue Date:||28-Mar-2000||Publication information:||Neurology; 54(6): 1385-7||Abstract:||To reassess the independent risk factors for lacunar stroke and to clarify the role of potential embolic sources, we conducted a case-control study using transesophageal echocardiography and duplex ultrasonography. Among 62 consecutive patients with their first lacunar stroke and 202 normal controls, we found that hypertension (p < 0.001), smoking (p = 0.001), and aortic arch atheroma (p = 0.006) were independently associated with an increased risk of lacunar stroke. Whether proximal aortic arch atheroma is mechanistically associated with lacunar stroke or merely coexistent is uncertain.||Gov't Doc #:||10746618||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/9217||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/10746618||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Aged
