To evaluate the factors related to severe intracranical atherosclerotic stenosis (intracranial vs. extracranial) as diagnosed by conventional angiography in Korean patients.
We retrospectively analyzed the angiographic results and clinical data of 127 consecutive patients with an angiographically confirmed stenosis greater than 70%. Nine factors, i.e. age, gender, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, smoking and alcohol habit, previous stroke and ischemic heart disease were included as presumed explanatory variables to discriminate different types of atherosclerotic stenosis (extracranial versus intracranial stenosis). Multiple logistic regression analysis was used to estimate independent effects of the predictive variables on cerebral occlusive disease.
Among 127 patients, 62 patients had intracranial stenosis and 65 patients had extracranial stenosis. Compared to extracranial stenosis, mean age was lower (p < 0.001), female-to-male ratio was higher (p = 0.001) and the number of patients with diabetes mellitus was less (p = 0.019) in group of severe intracranial stenosis significantly. There were no differences in hypertension, smoke and alcohol, hyperlipidemia, ischemic heart disease and previous stroke between two groups.
In Korean patients, severe atherosclerotic intracranial stenosis has younger, female and diabetes-free preference than severe atherosclerotic extracranial stenosis.
