Clinical and Angiographic Comparison of Asymptomatic Occlusive Cerebrovascular Disease
We Compared Clinical and Arteriographic Features in 106 Patients with Symptomatic Unilateral Carotid Territory Occlusive Disease to Determine the Frequency and Distribution of Occlusive Arterial Lesions in Asymptomatic Vessels. among Black Patients Who Were Predominantly from Chicago, Young, and Female, There Were Fewer Transient Ischemic Attacks and Myocardial Infarcts, Less Claudication, and More Asymptomatic Lesions of the Supraclinoid Internal Carotid Artery, Anterior Cerebral Artery Stem, and the Middle Cerebral Artery Stem. among White Patients Predominantly from New England, Elderly, and Male, There Was More Frequent and Severe Occlusive Asymptomatic Disease at Extracranial Carotid and Vertebral Artery Sites. Knowledge of the Distribution of Asymptomatic Lesions Will Help Guide Evaluation and Treatment Strategies for Patients with Occlusive Cerebrovascular Disease. © 1988 American Academy of Neurology.
