Background: Recent estimates of stroke incidence in the US range from 760,000 to 780,000 annually, however these estimates do not reflect the incidence of silent infarcts and hemorrhages. Since population-based studies indicate the prevalence of silent stroke is substantially higher than that of symptomatic stroke, estimates of stroke incidence based solely on symptomatic events may substantially underestimate the annual stroke burden. Methods: The prevalence of silent infarcts for different… Expand
