In secondary prevention, reduction of the risk of recurrent ischemic stroke might be expected with statins if a correlation can be established between hyperlipidemia and ischemic stroke or some specific ischemic stroke/TIA subtypes. However, such correlation remains controversial, and more particularly with the etiologic stroke/TIA subtypes. Few studies have evaluated the plasma lipid profile in different ischemic stroke subtypes, and notably in lacunar infarctions and cardioembolic strokes… CONTINUE READING
