OBJECTIVES Lacunar strokes account for 25% of all ischemic strokes and may represent the cerebral manifestation of a systemic small vessel vasculopathy of unknown etiology. Altered retinal vessel fractal dimensions may act as a surrogate marker for diseased cerebral vessels. We used a cross-sectional study to investigate fractal properties of retinal vessels in lacunar stroke. METHODS We recruited patients presenting with lacunar stroke and patients with minor cortical stroke as controls. All… CONTINUE READING
