OBJECTIVES In contrast with disorders of comprehension and spontaneous expression, conduction aphasia is characterized by poor repetition, which is a hallmark of the syndrome. There are many theories on the repetition impairment of conduction aphasia. The disconnection theory suggests that a damaged in the arcuate fasciculus, which connects Broca's and(More)
OBJECTIVES We carried out this cross-sectional study to explore the association between cerebral large artery lesions and leukoaraiosis in Chinese patients with stroke. The relationship between leukoaraiosis and risk factors of cerebral vascular disease was also investigated. METHODS Data were prospectively collected from patients with ischemic stroke(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the prevalence, knowledge, and treatment of TIA in a Chinese adult population. METHODS We conducted a complex, multistage, probability sampling-designed, cross-sectional, nationwide survey of 98,658 Chinese adults in 2010. Possible TIA cases were first identified by symptoms recall or self-reported history of TIA through(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the relationship of glycated albumin (GA) and the recurrence of stroke in patients on either dual or single antiplatelet therapy. METHODS The Clopidogrel in High-Risk Patients with Acute Nondisabling Cerebrovascular Events trial randomized minor ischemic stroke or TIA patients to antiplatelet therapy of clopidogrel plus aspirin or(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the association of lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) measured in the acute period and the short-term risk of recurrent vascular events in patients with TIA or minor stroke. METHODS We measured Lp-PLA2 activity (Lp-PLA2-A) in a subset of 3,201 participants enrolled in the CHANCE (Clopidogrel in High-Risk Patients with(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the predictive value of serum low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and non-high-density lipoprotein (non-HDL) cholesterol levels for ischemic stroke in the Chinese population. METHODS We performed a four-year cohort study of 95 778 men and women, aged 18-98 years, selected from the Kailuan study (2006-2007). Baseline LDL(More)
China lacks large scale authorized epidemiological study results in allusion to subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) within recent 15 years since MONICA (multinational monitoring of trends and determinants in cardiovascular disease) study revealed SAH situation in China in 2000. The main cause of SAH in China is aneurysm which takes up 30-50%, while over 90%(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess whether the fasting glucose level on admission, day 14 or their variation in patients with aSAH was associated with 1-year mortality. METHODS A prospective study was undertaken to analyze the effects of fasting glucose on admission, day 14 and their variation on the 1-year mortality rate after aSAH. Patients with aSAH were enrolled to(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intracranial Artery Stenosis (ICAS) is one of the most common causes of ischemic stroke in Asia. Previous studies have shown the number of ideal cardiovascular health (CVH) metrics was associated with lower risk of stroke. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between ideal CVH metrics and prevalence of ICAS. METHODS A(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the association between non-high-density-lipoprotein-cholesterol (non-HDL-C) and the prevalence of asymptomatic intracranial arterial stenosis (ICAS). METHODS AND RESULTS The Asymptomatic Polyvascular Abnormalities Community (APAC) study is a prospective cohort study based on the Kailuan district (China)(More)
