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… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Stroke in South America: a systematic review of incidence, prevalence, and stroke subtypes.
TLDR
The pattern of stroke subtypes seems to be different from that reported in other regions of the world, with a higher frequency of cerebral hemorrhages, small-vessel disease, and intracranial atherosclerotic lesions.
Trends in Stroke Incidence and 28-Day Case Fatality in a Nationwide Stroke Registry of a Multiethnic Asian Population
TLDR
This first countrywide hospital-based registry study in a multiethnic Asian population revealed marked overall reductions in stroke incidence and case fatality, however, it also identified important population groups with less favorable trends, especially younger adults and those of Malay ethnicity.
Prevalence and Correlates of Silent Cerebral Infarcts in the Framingham Offspring Study
TLDR
Risks previously associated with clinical stroke were also found to be associated with midlife SCI in the Framingham Offspring, and these results support current guidelines emphasizing early detection and treatment of stroke risk factors.
Study on the incidence and risk factor of silent cerebrovascular disease in young adults with first-ever stroke
TLDR
Hypertension and elevated homocysteine levels were 2 risk factors for silent cerebrovascular disease in young stroke patients in young patients with first-ever stroke.
Editorial comment--Stroke incidence and quality standard for comparison.
TLDR
In epidemiology, incidence is widely used as the measure of the frequency of occurrence in populations and it needs to define clearly for whom and what it uses when measuring the incidence.
The lifetime risk of stroke: estimates from the Framingham Study.
TLDR
The lifetime risk of stroke in middle-aged adults is 1 in 6 or more, which is equal to or greater than the LTR of AD, and women had a higher risk because of longer life expectancy.
Prevention of Stroke in Patients With Silent Cerebrovascular Disease: A Scientific Statement for Healthcare Professionals From the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association
TLDR
Strong evidence is found that silent cerebrovascular disease is a common problem of aging and that silent brain infarcts and white matter hyperintensities are associated with future symptomatic stroke risk independently of other vascular risk factors.
Silent Brain Infarction and Risk of Future Stroke: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
SBI is present in ≈1 in 5 stroke-free older adults and is associated with a 2-fold increased risk of future stroke.
Incidence of stroke symptoms among adults with chronic kidney disease: results from the REasons for Geographic And Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS) study.
TLDR
Reduction in glomerular filtration rate and higher albuminuria levels are associated with an increased risk for incident stroke symptoms.

Silent MRI infarcts and the risk of future stroke
TLDR
The presence of silent cerebral infarcts on MRI is an independent predictor of the risk of symptomatic stroke over a 4-year follow- up in older individuals without a clinical history of stroke.
Cardiovascular risk factors for and prevalence of silent brain infarcts in the elderly : the Rotterdam Scan Study
TLDR
Prevalence of silent brain infarcts is higher with increasing age and in women, and Hypertension and high pulse pressure are associated with silent infarCTs.
Incidence and Characteristics of Total Stroke in the United States
TLDR
This study replicates and confirms the previous annual estimates of approximately three quarters of a million total strokes and estimates that there were 783,000 first-ever or recurrent strokes in the United States during 1996, compared to the figure of 750,000 in 1995.
Prevalence and anatomic characteristics of infarct-like lesions on MR images of middle-aged adults: the atherosclerosis risk in communities study.
TLDR
The results suggest that there is significantly more subclinical than clinical CVD in the general population, and the prevalence of this subclinical disease increases with age, and is greater in black persons.
Incidence Rates of Stroke for Blacks and Whites: Preliminary Results from the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Stroke Study
TLDR
It is estimated that 760,000 strokes will occur in the US in the year 2000, derived from a large, population-based study using data from white and black residents of the Greater Cincinnati metropolitan area.
Racial differences in the incidence of intracerebral hemorrhage
TLDR
Compared with whites, African Americans have a twofold increased risk for intracerebral hemorrhage, most of this risk may be explained by differences in educational attainment and systolic blood pressure.
Prevalence of cardiovascular diseases among older adults. The Cardiovascular Health Study.
TLDR
The results suggest that prevalent disease estimates based only on self-report may underestimate the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases in older Americans.
Subcortical silent brain infarction as a risk factor for clinical stroke.
TLDR
The strong association of SSBI, FWT2HL, and PVH with hypertension suggests a common underlying mechanism (presumably small-vessel vasculopathy); the SSBI showed the most significant association for clinical subcortical stroke.
Asymptomatic Carotid Lesions and Silent Cerebral Infarction
TLDR
It is demonstrated that noninvasive assessment of carotid lesions can be useful in predicting the existence of silent cerebral infarction even in patients free from neurological deficits.
Silent brain infarction on magnetic resonance imaging and neurological abnormalities in community-dwelling older adults. The Cardiovascular Health Study. CHS Collaborative Research Group.
TLDR
MRI evidence of brain infarcts is common in older men and women without a clinical history of stroke and their strong associations with impaired cognition and neurological deficits suggest that they are neither silent nor innocuous.
