White matter hyperintensity volume is increased in small vessel stroke subtypes.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE White matter hyperintensity (WMH) may be a marker of an underlying cerebral microangiopathy. Therefore, we hypothesized that WMH would be most severe in patients with lacunar stroke and intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), 2 types of stroke in which cerebral small vessel (SV) changes are pathophysiologically relevant. METHODS We determined WMH volume… (More)
