BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The etiology of ischemic stroke affects prognosis, outcome, and management. [...] Key Method The neurologists independently used the TOAST classification system in their bedside evaluation of 20 patients, first based only on clinical features and then after reviewing the results of diagnostic tests.

Classification of subtypes of ischemic stroke: history of the trial of org 10172 in acute stroke treatment classification.
TLDR
The committee emphasized the importance of obtaining information about the use of emergency anticoagulation as influenced by the pathogenic subtype and developed a system that could be used for the classification of subtypes of ischemic stroke, named the TOAST classification. Expand
A New Subtype Classification of Ischemic Stroke Based on Treatment and Etiologic Mechanism
TLDR
The new classification system for brain infarction was easy to use and had high inter-rater reliability and three raters agreed to the stroke subtype diagnosis in 165 out of 200 cases. Expand
Improving the Reliability of Stroke Subgroup Classification Using the Trial of ORG 10172 in Acute Stroke Treatment (TOAST) Criteria
TLDR
Ischemic stroke subtype based on published TOAST classification criteria can be reliably assigned with the use of a computerized algorithm with data obtained through standardized medical record abstraction procedures. Expand
Comparison of the new ASCO classification with the TOAST classification in a population with acute ischemic stroke
TLDR
The comprehensive character of ASCO allows the recording of important additional information that may be helpful for a specific treatment adaptation in each individual patient and creation of different etiological profiles in view of adapted clinical trials. Expand
Accuracy of initial stroke subtype diagnosis in the TOAST study
TLDR
It is concluded that clinical trials in stroke should not attempt to restrict entry into trials based on presumed stroke subtype, and a careful evaluation for etiology is justified in all patients presenting with stroke, regardless of presumed subtype. Expand
Outcome by Stroke Etiology in Patients Receiving Thrombolytic Treatment: Descriptive Subtype Analysis
TLDR
Patients with SVD were spared from bleeding complications and had the best outcome even after adjustment for confounding factors, and other etiologic groups showed no significant correlation to good outcome. Expand
Classification of Stroke Subtypes
TLDR
This article reviews published stroke subtype classification systems and offers rules and a basis for a new way to subtype stroke patients to support research findings. Expand
Risk factors for and incidence of subtypes of ischemic stroke.
TLDR
The study supports the view that the etiology of lacunar strokes is multifactorial and small vessel disease was significantly associated with hyperlipidemia and current smoking. Expand
Inflammation in ischemic stroke subtypes.
TLDR
A significant association was noted between the severity of neurological deficit at admission, the diagnostic subtype and some inflammatory variables after ischemic stroke, and this group reported that patients with cardioembolic subtype showed significantly higher median plasma levels of TNF-α,IL-6, IL-6 and IL-1β. Expand
Ischemic stroke subtypes: risk factors, functional outcome and recurrence
TLDR
It is concluded that risk factors, clinical imaging variables and prognostic differences are different among ischemic stroke subtypes and that neurological status on admission and during follow-up strongly favors LAC. Expand

Interobserver agreement in the diagnosis of stroke type.
TLDR
Reliable studies can rely on the independent diagnostic choices of several physicians when common definitions are employed and data from a completed workup are available, but reliability may be less for individual measurements such as signs or symptoms than for more-complex judgments such as diagnoses. Expand
Infarcts of undetermined cause: The NINCDS stroke data bank
TLDR
The results of the model suggest that angiography use was determined by clinical characteristics uniformly across centers and not by final diagnosis, which may help clarify risk factors and stroke subtypes, allow new mechanisms of ischemic stroke to be uncovered, and prevent classification categories of stroke used in clinical trials from becoming too broad. Expand
Use of antithrombotic drugs in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke
TLDR
Results of a future trial testing the efficacy of antithrombotic drugs would be useful for most neurologists in their management of patients with acute or progressing ischemic stroke. Expand
Epidemiological Characteristics of Lacunar Infarcts in a Population
TLDR
Small, deep cerebral infarcts had many of the epidemiological characteristics of other cerebral infARcts but there was a slightly higher frequency of hypertension, significantly lower frequency of a cardiac embolic source, and significantly better survival in patients with lacunar infarction than in those with nonlacunarinfarction. Expand
Diagnostic classification of stroke, especially Lacunes.
TLDR
Many reports have described the "lacunar syndromes" as having nonischemic or even nonvascular etiologies including intracerebral hemorrhage, subdural hematoma, neoplasm, and infectiousinflammatory conditions. Expand
Determinants of early recurrence of cerebral infarction. The Stroke Data Bank.
TLDR
Early recurrence was associated with longer median duration of initial hospital stay and a higher 30-day case-fatality rate, and increased weakness scores were associated with early recurrent stroke. Expand

TLDR
This paper describes the pilot Stroke Data Bank and presents the distribution of cases by diagnostic and demographic categories, which represents one of the largest series of prospectively collected stroke cases studied by CT and angiography. Expand
Lacunar Infarcts: Pathogenesis and Validity of the Clinical Syndromes
TLDR
The findings show that the Lacunar syndrome is an excellent clinical test for diagnosing lacunar infarction and that cardiac and carotid embolism are unlikely causes of lacunars infarctions, supporting the hypothesis that lacunAR infarcts are usually caused by small vessel disease. Expand
The Lausanne Stroke Registry: analysis of 1,000 consecutive patients with first stroke.
TLDR
It is believed that the Lausanne Stroke Registry is the first registry with complete computed tomography and Doppler ultrasonography data on all patients, which allows correlation between clinical findings, presumed etiology, and stroke location. Expand
