    A quarter of all ischaemic strokes are lacunar type. Lacunar infarcts are small infarcts in the deep cerebral white matter, basal ganglia, or pons, presumed to result from the occlusion of a single small perforating artery supplying the subcortical areas of the brain. Hypertension and diabetes...

    The benefits of surgical correction of moderate internal carotid artery stenosis have been demonstrated only in symptomatic subjects. It is debatable whether patients with lacunar infarct ipsilateral to a moderate carotid stenosis may be considered symptomatic like those with large–artery...

    Background: Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) constitutes a valuable diagnostic tool in patients with large cerebral infarctions to detect a cardiac source for cerebral embolization; however, its role in lacunar infarctions is still controversial. Objective: Comparison of the TEE findings...

    Background: The prognostic influence of hyperglycemia in acute stroke has been well established. While in cortical stroke there is a strong association between hyperglycemia and poor outcome, this relation is less clear in lacunar stroke. It has been suggested that this discrepancy...

    Background Cognitive impairment and dementia are common after stroke. It is unclear if risk differs between ischaemic stroke subtypes. Lacunar strokes might be less likely to affect cognition than more severe, larger cortical strokes, except that lacunar strokes are associated with cerebral...

    Hyperglycaemia in acute ischaemic stroke is traditionally associated with a worsened outcome. However, it is unclear whether the impact of hyperglycaemia on stroke outcome is similar in lacunar and non-lacunar infarctions. The relation between serum glucose measured within 6 h after...

    Background: Detection of multiple acute brain infarcts (MABI) by diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) may provide information about stroke mechanism in (1) acute lacunar stroke, where evidence of MABI suggests a cause other than small artery disease (SAD), such as...

    The classical "lacunar hypothesis" based on pathological and CT studies states that particular clinical syndromes - "lacunar syndromes" - are caused by small (<15 mm) subcortical infarcts due to the occlusion of a small perforating artery. In many cases however the clinical syndromes are not...

    Objectives: Although dysarthria-clumsy hand syndrome (DCHS) is a well known and infrequent lacunar syndrome, there are few data regarding the spectrum of associated clinical characteristics, anatomical site of lesion, and aetiopathogenetic mechanisms. We report a clinical...
