Ambulatory arterial stiffness index is not associated with magnetic resonance imaging markers of cerebral small vessel disease in lacunar stroke patients.

Abstract

Ambulatory arterial stiffness index (AASI) is associated with microvascular damage in other organs, but the association with microvascular brain damage is unknown. The association of AASI with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) markers of cerebral small vessel disease in 143 patients with lacunar stroke was investigated. We performed 24-hour ambulatory blood… (More)
