BACKGROUND Many stroke survivors remain at a functionally disabled state. Early prediction of functional outcome is an important step in the treatment and care of stroke patients. Brain imaging measures have received particular attention as one of the predictors of stroke outcomes. However, the associations between white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) and post-stroke recovery have been controversial. This study aimed to investigate whether deep and periventricular WMHs (DWMHs and PVWMHs… CONTINUE READING
