ABI has been shown to be associated with cerebral arterial disease and prognosis following stroke. We studied the associations of the degree of ABI lowering with extracranial carotid disease (ECD), intracranial large artery disease (ICLAD), and subsequent vascular events in a prospective cohort of acute ischemic stroke patients. Methods: ABI, extracranial and intracranial cerebral arteries were assessed in a blinded manner. ABI was categorized into 0.9-1.3 (normal), 0.8-0.89 (mildly lowered) and||Source Title:||Atherosclerosis||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/125647||ISSN:||00219150||DOI:||10.1016/j.atherosclerosis.2012.04.009|
