Although, atherosclerosis is a risk factor for stroke, there are many questions about this relationship. Stroke remains the major cause of disability and death, and atherosclerosis is responsible for 15-20 % of strokes. Moreover, atherosclerosis is not likely to play a direct role in cardioembolic infarction, intracerebral and subarachnoid hemorrhage. This study aimed to elucidate how the presence of carotid atherosclerosis influenced the occurance of stroke and also how it interacted with other risk factors for stroke. Is it possible to make predicttions about it?
