Previous studies on ACE I/D polymorphisms in lacunar strokes
and other cardiovascular phenotypes have yielded conflicting results.
People with lacunar stroke
have a low level of hs-CRP as compared to large vessel stroke.
Differential risk factors for lacunar stroke

Age, hypertension, and lacunar stroke

Masao Nagayama in 1993 in their study found that patients with Lacunar stroke

Modern understanding of pathogenesis of lacunar stroke
and large artery atherosclerosis suggests a common underlying aetiology, and as such they are increasingly grouped as noncardioembolic stroke [22-24].
One group of researchers reported on 44 patients with a diagnosis of lacunar stroke
