Risk of early anticoagulation in patients with small deep infarcts possibly caused by cardiogenic emboli

Clinical Neurology & Neurosurgery 89(3): 157-159

Risk of early anticoagulation in patients with small deep infarcts possibly caused by cardiogenic emboli

From a prospective registry of 103 stroke patients on early anticoagulation for cardiac embolus we selected 23 patients with a small deep infarct. We studied the incidence of hemorrhagic infarction on CT, and the risk of early anticoagulation. We found no hemorrhageic infarction on CT in any case, and no bleeding complications during the three week observation period. Obviously, early anticoagulation can be started safely in patients with a small deep infarct possibly caused by cardiac embolism.

A study from the L'Aquila Stroke Registry. The type of small-vessel disease in small deep (lacunar) infarcts (SDIs) remains contentious as opposed to that in primary intracerebral haemorrhage (PICH), which is lipohyalinosis in most cases. Therefore, we compared risk factor profiles as indi...
