BACKGROUND Conventional risk factors cannot explain the individual or ethnic difference in the location of cerebral atherosclerosis. Vascular geometry may play a role on this. AIM To investigate the association between the geometrical properties of the middle cerebral artery and intracranial atherosclerosis. METHODS Stroke patients with either symptomatic middle cerebral artery or proximal internal carotid artery diseases were enrolled. The diameter, length, and tortuosity (arc-chord ratio… CONTINUE READING
