Association of baseline dyslipidemia with stroke recurrence within five-years after ischemic stroke

Wiley: 8/4/14

Background and purpose

The association between dyslipidemia (DL) and stroke recurrence is unclear, but may be influenced by different subtypes of stroke. This study aims to explore whether DL contributes to the recurrence of certain subtypes of ischemic stroke.


Data from the Ege Stroke Registry was examined, and five-years follow-up data for stroke recurrence was analyzed. Trial of Org 10172 in Acute Stroke Treatment criteria was used to classify the subtypes of all stroke. Recurrent stroke was defined as a new neurological deficit compatible to ischemic stroke or intracerebral hemorrhage. The association between DL and stroke recurrence in patients with different sroke subtypes was analyzed using univariable and multivariable logistic regression models. Survival curves were estimated with Kaplan–Meier methods, and survival analyses were undertaken using Cox proportional hazards models. Read More
