BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Angiogenesis occurs after cerebral ischemia, and the extent of angiogenesis has been correlated with survival in stroke patients. However, postischemic angiogenesis is short-lived and may be completely terminated within a few weeks after ischemic insult. The molecular mechanism underlying the dissolution of postischemic angiogenic(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intracranial atherosclerosis (ICAS) is one of the major risk factors for ischemic stroke, particularly in Asian populations. We investigated the prevalence and risk factors of ICAS in asymptomatic subjects. METHODS We prospectively evaluated 835 asymptomatic Korean adults who voluntarily visited a tertiary referral hospital for a(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We investigated subsequent vascular events in patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) and determined the predictors of such events among vascular risk factors including large-artery disease, TIA-symptom duration, and acute ischemic lesions on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). METHODS We identified 98 consecutive patients with(More)
