BACKGROUND Insulin resistance (IR) is associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality including ischemic stroke. Its final complications are cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease caused by atherosclerosis. However, few studies on the relationship between IR and intracranial (IC) atherosclerosis have been reported. METHODS We analyzed 110 patients with acute stroke without diabetes who underwent brain magnetic resonance angiography and cerebral angiography… CONTINUE READING
