All three of the LACI group who had complete occlusion had the findings confirmed on colour duplex Doppler; one of these had a temporo-parietal infarct on CT.

Atrial fibrillation was found in 30 (30%; 95% CI 21-39%) of the TACI group, 13 (13%; 6-20%) of the PACI group, five (6%; 0-10%) of the LACI group and two (8%; 0-13%) of the POCI group ([chi square] P [is less than] 0.

Furthermore, there was a significant difference in the prevalence of ipsilateral and contralateral carotid disease in the PACI and TACI groups, but not in the LACI or POCI groups, suggesting that ipsilateral carotid stenosis is an important causative (rather than coincidental factor) in total and partial anterior circulation infarct but not in lacunar or posterior circulation infarct.
Only three of the LACI group had carotid occlusion and none had severe carotid stenosis.
The OCSP classification divided the 305 patients into 100 with TACIs (33%), 101 with PACIs (33%), 80 with LACIs (26%) and 24 with POCIs (8%).
